Didnt UC irvine give free tuition to the whole first class? So all that nonsense about the high tuition is unapplicable to them.

Didnt they give a 40% scholarship to everyone this year? So to date, no one has paid anything close to sticker. So why they are mentioning that, I have no idea.

Because the school is going to eventually charge people that. Probably within a year or two.

Yes, but they will almost certainly be accredited by then, so most of the logic of that post fails.

True. The shtick about it being unaccredited is silly. It will be.

Eaxctly. Plus they also knock the school for charging so much and having no alumni/career stats which they will also have by that time. As for the people that attended now, when they have no alumni/career stats, they havent paid anything near the sticker.

They won't have an alumni network worth a damn for 10 years.

As long as they keep the class sizes REALLY SMALL for the first decade or so, I think theyll be fine.

When they stop bribing people to choose UCI over UCLA and USC, they'll stop having students with UCLA/USC numbers. Not drinking the UCI koolaid at all

That is true. If UC Irvine makes it into the top 20 (i think this was the dean's goal, wasnt it?) then there will be 5 law schools from california in the top 20 lol.

These claims (top 20, top 8, top 14...) are really irritating. I would have noting against UCI--beyond the fact that it's a new law school in an era when we need to be eliminating law schools--were it not for these speculations.

Is this hype a necessary component of Chemerinsky's plan?

Who cares if it happens. The more law schools in the top 20 then the more the degree is degraded. Your average interviewer at any biglaw firm wont be able to tell the difference between Irvine, Hastings, and UCLA for that matter.

University of California pretty clearly is an absolutely mismanaged organization. Prime example is the embarrassing tuition fiasco.

Well, it would probably have to replace another school. So I dont see how it would degrade the degree. You cant have 25 schools ranked in the top 20 lol

Is this like an experimental piece to see how many logical fallacies you can fit into a paragraph?

The most curious thing to me is why the blog states that the top 8 is worth going to at sticker and anything else you should have full ride or job lined up before going to school. It's off topic but I haven't really seen anyone say top 8 or full ride before.
