  1. Who gives a rats behind about all the fluffy ranking nonsense. What students having to pay off debt need to know is that all schools aren't created equal and students from many schools don't have a snowball's chance of getting a decent paying job straight out of law school. Their lowly ranked lawschool won't tell them that though. When schools start honestly (accurately) reporting *those numbers, things will get interesting real quick, and the looks on student's faces will be priceless!

  2. As a retired attorney and graduate of IUPUI Indianapolis, I can empathize with the graduates, and congratulate them and the "ahead-thinking" faculty. I was 39 years old in 1975 when I was accepted into law school by "then" Dean Frandsen. I was taught the practical aspects of law practice, and encouraged to expand my knowledge and work experience by interning and odd job research. Those learnin experiences assisted me in both doing well in the bar exam, as well as finding employment before and after my being sworn in as an "attorney." My congratulations to the new school and it's courageous instructors and graduates. Indiana can surely use more and better-trained lawyers, to guide the State for years to come.

  3. Given the attorney unemployment reports all across the country proving the market over saturated with too many attorneys I suppose these student-hungry bureaucrats (who need new students as life blood / fresh meat for their institutions) would probably be willing to accept GED tests at this point as long as the wannabe legal eagles qualify for Federal student loans
