You gots a good point. ;)

Attrition is bad, however. Very bad. Kicking out significantly more that 35-40% of those who enroll? Dude!!! Over a 50% chance of being kicked out. What kind of person risks those odds on this level- A fool or ignoramus perhaps? I'm calling you neither, but there are other less appealing explanations for high attrition, than simply weeding out the stupid.

Another is abusive tuition policies.  Using an ABA example, it is possible for the same person to, in different dimensions, fail out of Cooley via the harsh curve or graduate from Harvard via a better curve.  The only thing that is different is a single LSAT score.  Policies kill people, while different policies raise the same individual.

Nothing, absolutely nothing, is a red flag of a "bad" school over high attrition.

lol legend. Did you just say:

"regional school do well in their regions and don't believe everything you read on the internet"

Not saying you're wrong, just very lengthy :).

^^ Stolen sarcasm?

Now S. IL? Yes, I have heard a little.  Its affordable, but the market is a little small-  Can't compete in Chi, but in southern IL they do ok. 

I think I met an attorney that went there once and she seemed successful and content.  Versus the droves of Cooley and FL Coastal grads I've met who loath the day the started law school.

I wish I could be more helpful.  Are either of these on TLS?  Might want to try to use google to back search LSD.  This site was 100X more useful 5 or 6 years ago.  Almost dead now. GL

A problem that few even consider because its a macro point of view IS scholarships.  How many schools charge 40k to half the class and nothing to the other half in an attempt to up the school's numbers? When schools offer you $ its not theirs, its other student's $, of course.

God forbid everyone pays 20k.  Versus one performance on a Sat morning test forcing the other half of the class to shoulder your tuition - so f.ing stupid and unnecessarily abusive it make my ears bleed.

Reminds me of who gets free shi.t (cloths, cars, hotels, even food) in our society- rich people of course. Makes perfect sense.  Everyone should pay, except the aristocrats, of course. 

Ahhhh- nice vent :)

The question asked about a stand alone law school vs a university is a good one.  Is a school being a stand alone law school a red flag?

I can think of a bunch, but not a single stand alone law school I would say going to is a hands down good idea- all are risky and expensive.  Can't think of a single one.

Hehe. Bump. Memorialized on LSD as the biggest flame ever.  Where did the OP end up going?  NYU for free I hope. Kind of a duh question.

This sucks- women want me and men just want to be me.  Who's perspective is better?  I just can't decide. I hate my life. Help. Yeah Yeah, I know people are starving to death in Haiti.

No one mentioned that the only way to answer this depends on your individual goals.  Therefore, there is no answer.

As always: anything that floats is a witch.  A duck floats.  Therefore, a duck is a witch.
