"Ranking: With such high costs, for a public institution, this school must certainly have one hell of a reputation in legal and academic circles, right?!?! Well, according to Bob Morse and U.S. “News” & World Report, the [Akron University School] of Law is the 127th greatest, most fantastic and amazing law school, in the United States. The [school] shares this pathetic rating with four other schools, i.e. [Creighton], Mercer, [Samford], and the University of Idaho.

Average Law Student Indebtedness: USN&WR lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the [University] of Akron’s JD Class of 2010 who incurred debt for law school - as $60,149. Furthermore, 84% of [school’s] 2010 class took on such corrosive debt. This amount does not take undergraduate debt into account."

Warnings that should be heeded for sure, but is the graphic picture on your blog really necessary?

He lists Cordozo, Case, Dickinson, Loyola LA, Houston, Pitt and others as crap schools (literally) and doesn't list Appalachian (<%50 job rate) or FL A&M ( <%50 job rate).  For the rec, I don't know Akron too well, but I've heard good things and comparatively- 60k isn't that bad. 

I guess he thinks only loosers go to Cordozo.  I don't even know what to say to that.
