Tack on 5 month "articling" period to sit for a bar to keep out most people who can't get a job and we're golden.

Nope, that is bullshit. Shit lawyering needs a steady stream of shitty lawyers. It doesn't hurt me if some TTT kid gets a bar admission. He isn't competing for my job anyway.

Articling doesn't stem the flow of shitlawyers, it stems the flow of barred unemployed lawyers.

Not this time, but not a bad assumption.

65% of Seton Hall full-time students get some sort of merit scholarship. That means 35% and probably most of the part-time students are attending this shit-hole at sticker. Not a good move.

Probably illegal or would bring about anti-trust lawsuits, but I wish Congress could somehow create an organization that would aggregate legal hiring from every US law school, and if a school didn't have, say, a 65%+ employment average in full-time JF-required jobs over 3 year periods, federal loans would not be granted to students wishing to attend that school.

Personally I'm glad law isn't a UG degree because I fucked around in high school and ended up in a TTT public school. Since I did well in college and got a decent LSAT score I don't have to be dragged down by decisions I made when I was 15 for the rest of my life. Not that this (somewhat) rare case justifies our current system, but it is one advantage.
