I've been really following this story in the liberal blogosphere, and I'm amazed that a crappy school like Regent Law gets so many people placed in the upper echelons of the government. Even in this administration.I'm also a little disappointed that no one has yet to criticize Regent grads' intelligence since they went to one of the crappiest schools in the country. It's probably the equivalent of going to the Carribean for Med School. We realize that T14 kids were being passed up for government jobs, so Regent students could get career positions in the Justice Department they are no where close to qualified for, right?Bush really makes me mad, but that House of Cards is really wobbling right now.

Do you think Regent REALLY encourages critical thought??
For a partner at a big law firm, the T14/TTT distinction is easy to make. For the US government, it is a lot harder to do that. It's like the US Government telling GM that they'll no longer buy Chevy's because they are crap... You can't do that... It's an American company that sells cars -- you have to take it at face value. ABA says Regent is a real law school, therefore the government must treat it as every bit as much of a real law school as Georgetown.
