Luckily you don't have to deal with the admissions office once you are a student. At the Wake Scholars day a 3L said he withdrew his application after meeting with their admissions staff because they were rude to him, so that appears to be a common theme. Then again I would get annoyed if 4,000 0L's were pestering me about getting 1 of 250 seats, yet other admissions offices are nicer than Santa Claus (Wake and Alabama!).

Hard to be "competent" when you're controlled by the state legislature to such a massive extent.
The only state school that can get away with a 60%+ quota is Texas. Being the size of several states helps in that respect.
I'm not talking about in-state quotas. The state legislature has nothing to do with UNC Law's slow-ass admissions, sporadic acceptances, and lack of a definitive strategy to secure top-quality students. Honestly, I think I could make UNC a top 25 school after one cycle. The holes in what they're doing are so apparent, and there is no explanation for why they are so deficient in that regard.
The state's power over the school has a lot of negative effects, but the poor performance of the admissions office is not one of them.
Really? What is your recommendation?
