I have been following this school for a while now and my emotions towards it have shifted. At first I thought it was simply risible and laughed at the students who would decide to go there. Now I actually feel bad for these students and I'm embarrassed for them. It gives me butterflies in my stomach just scrolling through their website while reading some of the the professors quotes. In all seriousness, this school needs to be shutdown asap. It's a total embarrassment.

Let's not kid ourselves. In many other walks of life this activity would result in criminal prosecutions.

You accidentally capitalized his name. It's ok, I fixed it.

This is what makes me happiest about this thread. We should have a multi-year thread like this for all the worst TTTs.

Everybody ITT should sign a pledge to IRL join and be active in the ABA Section on Legal Education once we've got jobs locked down.

Keep in mind Google now customizes your search results based on your search history. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Personalized_Search For example, when I search something in Google I typically get obscure Canadian sites that none of you have ever heard of.

For me, searching "Indiana Tech Law School" gets this thread at #5. But then again, I am a [semi] regular TLSer. The other results I get are different from the ones in the screenshot.

Anyways, someone do a search with the personalized search turned off (I am too lazy to learn how to do it).

Maybe it was originally top 20% (hence the four originally), and they upped it to top third realizing that it would help another three people find jobs or something. That would mean there's only 20 students left, of course. I find it hard to believe that all 28 that started the year there are still there, after all the nonsense they probably endured having hip hop law forced down their throats...

Makes sense, but their website still has the 20% figure (--LinkRemoved--). The whole thing is bizarre -- they claim their class size is 28, which is a number that kind of makes sense due to attrition (they claimed 33 students at the start of the semester). But that doesn't square with seven of their students making up 20% of the class.

It almost seems like they got to seven by rounding 20% of the initial class size (33), even though the class has apparently shrunk by five students. So the Dean's List number is the top 20% of the initial class, drop-outs and all, as opposed to the actual top 20% of the current c/o 2016?

ETA: re-reading now, maybe their initial class size actually was 28? The Dean claimed it was 33 just before classes started. Maybe five people dropped out right before the start of the semester? If so, the numbers given are especially deceitful.


Based off this email exchange, the number seems to be 26 students for now. http://postimg.org/image/if51wt4hz/

WTF is a "corporate executive juris doctor"?

EDIT: My favorite part is their crest, which has a Latin motto--Dura Lex Sed Lex--that appears to mean (maybe my classics degree is failing me here) "Harsh law, but law." I mean that HAS to be a troll, right?

I like the generic stock photos they use for their introductory video.

"Hey what image should we use for sports agent?"

"Do we have any white guys with two thumbs up wearing headsets from the late 90's? Perfect, that."

I will say, though, that at least it's a lot cheaper than Indiana Tech.

The following list, although comprehensive, still represents only a minority of career fields where an online law degree may not only be an asset but may also make all the difference in their ability to function at the highest levels.

RC fail. Apparently they don't know what either comprehensive or minority means. or maybe both.

That is not going to help them at all in the Cooley Rankings. They better have a big library.

With a Student-Facutly Ratio of 2.5:1 how can one not get an excellent learning experience?
