props to paul campos
btw wake class of 2015 is at least one person smaller (deferred a year), to 126.
better economy, class of 2015 students for the win?
Looks like there will be b/w 4,000-5,000 fewer 1Ls, so that is a win, but there is still a lot of discouraging to do, and I hope Professor Campos keeps his foot on the pedal. We really need to see some of these shithouse schools just close. Cooley, Charlotte, John Marshall, Phoenix, the list goes on. Even with a 5K drop in matriculants, that's still 38-39K students for <25K jobs.
The direness of the situation can hardly be overstated. But this is definitely the right direction (and no credit is due to law schools themselves). I would expect to see some law schools trying to take credit next cycle. "We have decreased our class sizes the past two years as a response to a constricting legal market." BU law has a video from their dean and she talks about their response. I can't find it at the moment, but it was so aggravating. Her first point was essentially that BU was going to keep their tuition increases in check. (so we're just gonna bump tuition a lil' bit) - and that's not even true, they raised tuition 4%, which is standard. The rest was derp / rant.
