I wonder if you win the scholarship, can you just opt for the headphones instead?

I cannot believe the ABA allows this profession to continually embarrass itself by allowing places like this to open up shop.

No practicing lawyers approve of this stuff from Biglaw partners on down. It really makes you wonder who's in charge and why this is allowed to happen. Lawyers have an image problem as it is. We don't need televangelist-level schools like Indy Tech (run by people like adpc) making things even worse.

No need to wonder. Law deans are in charge, and it's disproportionately law deans from terrible schools.

Oh, it will be when the time comes. It will be. Trust me, these people are running a 3-year, $90,000 bar review course at this point. Their medians are even better than a number of schools that are still accredited. They'll get just enough people to pass the bar under the loose standards that exist today, and from thereon out, it's difficult to lose accredition. Like three new schools were accredited in the last two years despite all the problems.

You've provided zero evidence that this school will ever be ABA accredited, and it seems like a foregone conclusion this place will end up being shut down soon - its just losing too much money for the school.

Try not to let your complete hate for the legal profession ruin every thread

Better medians aren't hard to get when you only enroll 30 people.

Can you explain what you think there is to love about the legal profession

Also please provide evidence that the school won't be accredited, right now I'm seeing zero

Also how is Cougs ruining threads with his complete hate. Can you please link to the other threads he ruined

True, but class size doesn't matter for ABA accreditation. It's the pass rate that matters, and smaller class size may actually make it easier because you can give each student more individualized attention.

If it shuts down because it's losing too much money, than it won't be the ABA that's shutting it down. It will be the scambloggers that you live to hate who are making prospective students more aware of the risk you take on by going to law school.

So enough with your non sequiturs.

Also, I don't hate everything about the legal profession. If I did, I'd have chosen a different path by now. I don't really hate anything...but I do strongly disapprove of the way legal education is being handled. If I have any problems with the profession itself, it's pretty much limited to problems that arise as a result of the poor fashion in which legal education is managed. The profession itself is fine. It's filled with a mix of smart, interesting people and sociopaths like anywhere else...except the smart people are a bit smarter and the sociopaths a bit more anti-social.

The school has room for 350 students and expected about 100 in its first class, but enrolled only 28. Since then, however, enrollment has more than doubled to 59.

i can't believe dean cumming managed to pass this off to the reporter
it doubled because this is their second year in business, not because the school is attracting more students
they had almost the same enrollment this year as last

This thread cured my boredom.

Really, just stunning.

Edit: This thread and Nando's TTT blog are (still) first-page results when you Google the school. Such a huge public service.

I'm curious to know if being rejected on the first go-round for accreditation is really as common as Indy Tech wants us to believe.

By the time ITLS is accredited, bar passage rate won't considered for ABA accreditation because it isn't a fair measurement--according to schools with atrocious bar passage rates. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/20/busin ... -fire.html
