We need to put an end to this rampant credentialing racket.

I do agree with Mr. Alexander on at least one thing...his school is not alone. There's at least three dozen other rackets that never should have opened or should be closed down immediately.

If TLS'ers weren't so paranoid about anonymity I'd say a podcast would be a pretty good idea...

DO NOT GO TO INDIANA TECH FOR ANY REASON AT ALL.
NOT BECAUSE YOU WANT TO LIVE AND WORK IN INDIANA.
NOT BECAUSE IT'S FREE.
NOT BECAUSE YOU HAVE A COST OF LIVING STIPEND.

We should put together a song and post it on youtube. Kind of like We Are the World. Unfortunately, I believe Michael Jackson is unavailable.

Just saw this. Didn't read all the posts. Shouldn't this guy be in jail for starting a new law school?

Three dozen???? there are that many on the west coast alone. Cali has twelve correspondence and online law schools, although not accredited, are registered by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California. TWELVE!!!! Not to mention the awful ones like Monterey or PCL. We should literally shut down all the non accredited law schools plus about 60 of the accredited ones. That leaves about 140 law schools enough for every state to at least have 1 and for the bigger states to have between 2-4 (NY and Cali could probably get away with 5).

I know its far below what most people here get, but I will be happy with a 157, and a 155 will keep me from a retake in December! Its all about where I am, and where I want to be. Wish me luck! Even though at this point as a result of the crazy RC and the zoning game, im thinking I would be lucky to break a 150 despite my consist PT's that landed in the low 160's.

In response to overwhelming negative response about Indiana Tech, I wish all the best, but as I said earlier, replacing IUPUI is gonna be tough, especially at that sticker price!


Haven't read through the whole thread but good luck dude. Sounds like it might have gone fine--hope it did!

Best idea ever. I wonder what happened to that guy. He was a very entertaining writer. You could fill a novel with all his material.

I hate defending a school but PCL's annual tuition is only $4,000 per year. It's probably the only law school that isn't doing it entirely for the money.

A disturbing trend is the movement to create "franchised" law schools. The term "franchised law school" being used to describe a new law school started by a school located hundreds of miles away from the new law school.

This model exists as the following:

+ Concordia University is a college with an enrollment of 3,100+/- studets in Portland Oregon. In 2009 Concordia had a reported endowment of just $7.2 million. Guess what? Concordia statrted a new law school in Boise Idaho and welcomed its first law school class this falll (2012) . I am not sure why a school in Oregon chose to start a new law school in Idaho.
http://www.concordialaw.com/

+ John Marshall Law School (Atlanta) was accredited by the ABA in 2005. John Marshall Law School decided to expand enrollment and this fall opened a new campus in Savannah Georgia as "The Savannah law School".
http://www.savannahlawschool.org/

+ The Thomas M. Cooley School of Law with four (4) existing law school campuses in (i) Lansing Michigan, (ii) Grand Rapids Michigan, (iii) Auburn Hills Michigan, and (iv) Ann Arbor Michigan expanded enrollment by opening a fifth (5th) law school location in Tampa Florida this year.
http://www.cooley.edu/tampabay/
Please note that a listing on Cooley's own website ranks Cooley to be the #2 law school in the county behind Harvard but ahead of Yale, Columbia, and all others (see link
http://www.cooley.edu/rankings/overall2010.html. )

+ If you add in the currently unaccredited law schools Belmont University, Lincoln Memorial University, and thread favorite Indiana Tech, each of which are, or will, seek ABA accreditation and there could be six (6) new law schools churning out law school grads into an already flooded market.

some schools do that for EMBA programs, which is just as silly as TTTTs (e.g. Wharton West)

Fun fact: andre douglas pond cummings is related to e.e. cummings (hence why he doesn't capitalize his name).

As long as it’s something I’m committed to, I think I can find a way to make it work.

– Megan Marks, Indiana Tech Law School’s first admitted student, commenting in a school-sponsored press release on what it’s like to be part of the school’s first class.

Marks said she’s not concerned about job prospects….

psychology major and a local yokel

Indiana Tech law school admits 1st student

Indiana Tech's law school has admitted its first student nine months before its scheduled opening.

Purdue University senior Megan Marks is the first student admitted to the private university's law school, which will become Indiana's fifth.

The 21-year-old psychology major is a Fort Wayne native. She tells the Journal Gazette reports ( --LinkRemoved--) she's looking forward to studying law in the city where she grew up.

Law School Dean Peter Alexander says several people expressed interest in an early admissions program, so the school has offered a streamlined process to meet the need. Through the early admissions program, applicants can secure a seat months before regular applicants. They must agree not to submit an application to another law school.

Indiana Tech is seeking to admit 100 students in its first class.

I don’t know of anyone on here who has applied, but I am thinking they met their mark of 100 students.
