Perhaps I'm misreading things, but is this attrition rate due to academic dismissal alone or does it include withdrawal for economic reasons and transferrign students? If it's purely 'failed out', it's rediculous. If it includes those that transferred out to better schools, then is such a high rate any real surprise?
Iím sorry maybe Iím a male private part here but if you canít pull better than 2.0 at a law school with a B+ curve over 3 years you should not be graduating with a law degree.
With out doing an excessive amount of research on this, I think it's fair to look at the schools in question and realize that they are letting in sub-standard applicants with no chance of success. These schools make a living off the 1L tuition of these dreamers. And the attrition doesn't stop at 1L. Many schools, Williamette comes to mind, are not afraid to "cut bait on you" as late into your 3L year. At that point they realize they have to protect their bar passage rate, as meager as it may already be. Also, do you see many people matriculating INTO any of these schools? That answer I know.... NO. If you're in the bottom quartile of your class, you should be worried, ITE. At that point, the onus is on you.
Quote Iím sorry maybe Iím a male private part here but if you canít pull better than 2.0 at a law school with a B+ curve over 3 years you should not be graduating with a law degree. I'm pretty sure most of these schools curve to a C or even C-.Frankly, I'm not really all that up in arms that these places exist. I do think peoplpe should be sure they know what they are getting into before starting at these schools.
I used to believe as you do Mathies... why try to save anyone? It's their life.But I am concerned that the ABA has accredited WAY to many schools for the opportunities that are available. Also, at many of these schools your paying tuition equal to that of the T14-Tier 1. That, imho, is an abomination. Hell, at LEAST make it affordable.
