This advice was left on two of the Valparaiso acceptance posts at Law School Numbers:
I'm on a full ride...if you don't want to work in NW Indiana, it sucks. Attrition rate is high (19.7%)
, grades are low(hard to keep the scholarship) and the career center is poo! If you just want a J.D. on the cheap it's ok. Nice staff and faculty, just better have your own resources for work.

Congrats on Valpo...it's nice to be wanted. However DON'T believe their excuses for the T4 ranking (Tier 4 of U.S. News and World Reports -- lowest ranking available)
/1L attrition rates/career prospects (86.2% of graduates employed 9 months after graduation)
. You better love NW Indiana (its not terrible) and plan to work here. No one else has even heard of this place!

I added the bold red statements, as they were not part of the origional posting.
