Are you serious? What happened? Are you simply floating your own idea of what should be, or was there actually a threat of rescinding their ABA accreditation? Come on, be a little bit specific before suggesting something that extreme.

BYU: "Topnotch talent that is often overlooked."

That's pretty much the exact opposite of what I want to read about any prospective law school. The school I want is the one that gets: "Illiterate, unskilled dolts who all seem to wind up with plum jobs and outrageous salaries for no apparent reason."
