Honestly, I know people get stuck in really tough situations (lots of debt, no job prospects) coming out of these schools but seriously, you have no business going to law school/being a lawyer if you can't muster better numbers than that. I am waiting for the day that these schools get sued/shut down for preying on the weak and taking their money, leaving them broke, hungry and despondent post-graduation. Seriously, these schools have GPA medians that dip into the mid-twos? Is that a joke? This coming from a guy with a 2.65 (from a top private uni, but still, it's a joke). Man, what these schools do is simply unethical. My suggestions, eliminate the fourth tier, some of the third, and stop duping people into the idea that they can get rich as lawyers when that is nothing but a pipe-dream.
FYI it appears you don't need to wait anymore: two more law schools were slapped with a summons this morning by graduates alleging fraud, misrepresentation and violation of state consumer protection laws in Michigan and New York. We now have Cooley, New York Law School (NYLS) and Thomas Jefferson School of Law (TJSL) all having to defend themselves in court against people who said they ripped them off. Per the conference call with the attorneys handling the Cooley an NYLS cases, more lawsuits are probably on the way.
