What worries people about those schools (at least myself a little) is that they don't publish the numbers that ABA schools do.
I mean, I've never seen on the websites employment at grad/employment at 6mo. after grad; median starting salary; bar passage rates; average entering GPA/LSAT.
That being said 21k$ a year for tuition is something I'm not
looking forward to for my ABA school.

Also, I totally do not think its neccesarry to read any kind of book unless
you plan on going to a top 14 or have marginal numbers. Then strategy becomes more important. But the process itself is really pretty self-explanatory. I mean each app tells you what to do
