Very good article UChi2L. Sent it to some friends who are starting law school in the fall.

Ave Maria had a lot of good things going for them. Strong bar passage rate, excellent funding, low attrition rate for a T4. Shaking things up will certainly cause many potential students to avoid this school.

Excellent post TDJD84. Very good points. There is nothing wrong with getting your JD online, and I think many mature B&M students understand this. There are tons of kids running around this board bashing everyone and anyone they can get a rise out of. I think that many B&M students would respect most people who could pass the bar while studying on their own.
Also, good point about the lack of networking and social interaction opportunities that many online DL schools do not provide. One day they will probably address this and figure out a way to improve this aspect. Unless you are already established, it is tough to get any kind of job without knowing the right people.

Drexel University has just started a law school and one of the focuses is entrepreneurial business law.
Here is the PDF -
If you have any trouble opening the document, you can simply Google "Drexel Law + entrepreneur law" and it should be the first hit that comes up.

LSAT :154 A,A,A,A- But michigan student does make a good point as to the level of competition. What would be interesting to see is how well a student with a low LSAT does after a transfer to a T1 school
Wow, awesome semester! Your rank must be kick @ss!

You can't infer a faulty correlation from a single data point.
Many lower ranked law schools actually have tougher grading curves... So his/her success at a school with a 2.4 - 2.6 grading curve would only strengthen the OP's argument.

i know you are not a lawyer, thats why u are on a lawschool board. I am so a doctor now as I have seen er, so do not asume I am not a doctor, screw the ama and the aba I am now a doctor
I would pay money to see duckasourus' LSAT writing sample...
We have several associates at my firm from UofM. I would be willing to bet that even if you had a 3.0 at that school you would still be very highly pursued.
