Time marches on, but still these comments hold true. The school is on a campaign to destroy its own reputation. When you set the median GPA at about 2.7, what else could happen? This is a fine school if you just want the paper and need to become a lawyer at all costs. You need to be in the top 5 (not 5 percent) of this school to get the kind of opportunities that law students generally go to law school for. If you're not a top 5'er, just come with your lawyerly connections already in place and you'll do fine (think in-laws, parents, etc.). Otherwise, go with the rankings and suck up the cost. Opportunities come best to those from the higher ranked schools, period.
