The tuition hikes really are insane. I applied to my law school based on a tuition figure, and they raised it my 1L year by approximately 20%. The services didn't change, but they argued that it was necessary to maintain the institution.A combination of easy access to federal loans, old school business models, US news rankings, and the ABA are forcing prices up. The real kicker is that much of the money my law school brings in flows into the University.
I had heard about that, but didn't know it was official do you know what the title of the law is? Or is it pending approval? If it is in effect and Hastings just pulled a 15% annual increase for no apparent reason then it is obviously ineffective, but just wanted to know what the law was if you happened to know it.
