gtfo with that shit. It was shrewd in 1970. You missed the boat. You'll never make up for your failure to understand that the money is in Silicon Valley or Wall Street

180

The scary news: Many law schools will face severe financial difficulty this coming year, and if this decline continues some law schools will close.

The good news: Law students should get higher scholarship offers this year. After going up for decades, we may finally witness a decline in real tuition (the scholarship discounted rate).

The bad news: Law schools will still produce far more graduates than available jobs (BLS stats here). To get a closer match between supply and demand for new lawyers, law schools must enroll about 35,000 first years (still above openings, but attrition after 1st year will bring this down). The last time enrollment was that low was in the early 1970s, when there were 50 fewer accredited law schools.

We should open a law school that accepts people in the 130s. Charge 40k a year in tuition.

the problem with that is you need to have a certain % of bar-passers to keep your accreditation, and bar passage rates are abysmal for people in that range.

The point is, humanities and social science majors from non-elite schools make up the vast majority of law students and prospective law students, including many 170+ scorers.

don't think it's raw intelligence. those who do not take it simply will not prepare for it.

it does not mean that the average joe who has spent, say, 2 months prepping for it will get a below-150.
