Quote from: snickersnicker on May 30, 2008, 09:14:27 PMAve Maria is falling apart. Regardless of the move, this school has been on the downswing for the past few years (though I would argue that an ardently religious school, regardless of sect, never had much going for it to begin with).You don't think having a Supreme Court Justice, Antonin Scalia, help create the curriculum is a plus? You don't think having Clarence Thomas give the first year lecture was a plus? The Ave Maria board is comprised of some very, very prestigious people. Ave Maria had a lot going for it. I don't agree with Ave Maria's politics, but I will not deny the school had a lot going for it.

I would recommend not going to law school. There's a reason the three schools you mention are awful. Law is all about critical thinking, and while that certainly does not exclude religious belief, attempting to combine a legal education with fundamentalist religion simply does not work. Get a degree in theology or divinity if religion is that important to you.
Is the OP a troll? If you are Evangelical, why would you consider Ave Maria? If you are a conservative Catholic, why would you consider Regent or Liberty?
If your numbers are that good and you want to attend a conservative school, why wouldn't you consider George Mason, BYU, Baylor, Pepperdine, etc?
bingo. no evangelical would consider going to a heretical, papist institution.
And one wonders why an Evangelical Conservative would prefer the schools mentioned???
