The Wikipedia page for New York Law School doesn't have a section on "criticism" and is almost entirely positive. This looks like a job for TLS...


I almost fell out of my chair when I saw one of the subheadings under History was entitled "Renaissance"

From the Wikipedia article:

'Besides these degrees, New York Law School also has "Three + Three Programs," which allow undergraduate students to start at the Law School after only three years of undergraduate education, and then receive their undergraduate degree after successfully completing the first year at the Law School. The programs also allow students to continue receiving comparable financial aid to that which they received during their undergraduate education provided they maintain their academic performance. They also are not required to take the Law School Admission Test before entering the Law School.'

Jeez, so if these kids had to take the LSAT, the LSAT median might be even worse??

Was that color-coded grid every updated to reflect the complete data?

As an fyi, this was the first year law school could wait until mid-October to submit their data to the ABA, so some took longer doing the same on their websites.

920 is how many applicants they had, not how many enrolled :shock:

It's crazy that through four years, UCI managed to see only a slight number decrease even as they went progressively from free to normal price and doubled their class size. --And all while law schools are shrinking and struggling to maintain class sizes.

Haven't their medians slipped each year though?

Honestly California probably has the most LS applicants of any state and finding 100 people to accept out of the like 50,000 160+ LSAT scores floating around at any given time can't be that challenging.

When do they have to release them by?

And why would they not already have released them? What advantage do they gain?

It sort of hurts applicants, especially those figuring out where to ED, by limiting the information they can base their decision off of.

Has anyone tried just calling and asking? Or is that a ridiculous thing to do?
