Lololol, just received this email from the prestigious Indiana Tech:

I also received this same email. I did not take the June LSAT. I think they might just be trying to get people to attend and might not be as genuine as everyone on here thinks they are.

1/3 tuition scholarship for a 145 LSAT. Can't say I've ever heard of that before.

Edit: Not that it's a great deal, lol, I'm just saying it has to be some kind of record.

Everybody who contributed to the "feasibility study" should be forced to guarantee the student loan debt taken out by Indy Tech students.

It's really not fair that the US taxpayers are on the hook.

It could be a flame, but Nando just posted on his blog an apparent copy of an email that adpc wrote to a potential applicant. It seems there are many things beyond his own name that adpc refuses to capitalize.

From: cummings, andré d p
Sent: Friday, July 11, 2014 8:03 AM
To: [redacted]
Cc: Anderson, Jessica L; Palmison, Meredith R
Subject: RE: Interested in Attending

“greetings [potential applicant],

i am pleased to hear that our admissions team reached out to you by e.mail. please let me know where you are in the process of applying to law school, including whether you have applied to other law schools, where you live in the u.s., and where you went to college.

to answer your question [potential applicant], yes, you should absolutely apply to the indiana tech law school. we are accepting applications through july 31st. during my career i have enjoyed a long history serving on admissions committees at other law schools and here at tech law and some of my most successful (and favorite) students were those that scored a 143, a 141, and even a 139 on the lsat. i have seen students that did not do as well as they wanted to on the lsat excel in law school, pass the bar exam on the first attempt and have wonderful careers as a lawyer. so, do NOT listen to the naysayers. a 143 is a serviceable score that should enable you to be admitted to law school, particularly if you have other strong indicators of success in your application (great personal statement; solid recommendation letters; good performance in undergrad, etc.).

so, yes [potential applicant], please apply as soon as you can. i have cc:ed our admissions dean, jessica anderson glassburn to this e.mail. she is our admissions professional and can walk you through the application process and let you know what you need to do in order to be considered and potentially admitted to our incredible new law school.

finally, i am pleased that you recognize that our school and my classes in particular are those that do challenge traditional legal education and look to disrupt the status quo of other law schools and legal education in general. i believe that you would find indiana tech law school to be a much different and much better approach to legal education through fundamental experiential and collaborative legal education that will provide you real skills and hands-on training during law school, while you are learning the theory of the law.

at any rate, thank you for reaching out. i hope to see your application soon. please let me know if you have any other questions.

warmly,

dean cummings

does outlook automatically capitalize after periods?

Edit: just checked, it does. I'm going to call bullshit on the non capitalization of the email. The email is probably legit, but I think the caitalization was edited. No one would go through that much effort to not capitalize.

My god. This means that a non-negligible % of their class will be paying sticker (their median was in the low 140's, right?)

They might have written it in word or something and sent it to someone to be checked beforehand and then just copied and pasted it into Outlook. I am fairly confident that Outlook won't mess with the formatting when you paste something into it.

Word auto-capitalizes too, though.

You can turn text auto-correct off, which I assume is what happened here. Or maybe adpc has Boomerish tendencies and goes through and manually lowercases everything while proofreading his e-mails.

Also, "e.mail" with the period has been pissing me off big-time. Does that piss anyone else off?

Still it seems like a lot of work. It's possible but he's not a total moron. He went to a good school and did big law for a while at a good firm. I just find it very suspect. He doesn't capitalize out of respect for ee cummings (supposedly) it's not like he's against proper punctuation in general... I hope?

On the other hand, telling someone a 142 is serviceable is pretty stupid so who knows.

Yes. Also, I love your gif. As a fellow SB enthusiast that may be my favorite avatar on TLS.

I love this thread. Don't get me wrong, it also makes me very upset and angry that schools like this exist--and that actual people are actually enrolled in them. But this thread is great entertainment.

There's just one thing that's been bugging me...

Someone needs to break it to dean cummings/pond cummings/the notorious adpc that E.E. Cummings signed his name with capital letters. And--omg get this--he actually capitalized words when writing letters to people! Yes, he had an unconventional way of using capitalization, but he still used it. A 5-second Google image search will prove he didn't pry the shift key off his typewriter and toss it out the window. adpc, I understand wanting to pay homage to your great-uncle (or however you two are supposed to be related) but do so in a way that doesn't make you look illiterate. </English major rant>

Apparently with proper capitalization. (PDF)

He writes exactly the types of articles I would expect a former-KE-corporate-group-turned-hip-hop-academic to write.

I'm bored at work and went to his website. A few observations:

1) wtf is with his love of vests?
2) he's like the old dude at parties who is trying to be cool and fit in. However the other people know he doesn't belong, and the vests know he doesn't belong.
3) it looks like it was made in dos
4) "students doin' work" is right under his "scholarship".

I really wish I could have a beer with this guy just to see what he's like. He seems like a cartoon character.

He could be trolling everyone, but I feel he is an insufferable douche.
