Another law school offering 2-yr JD program, a premonition?

Postby cahwc12 » Fri Apr 26, 2013 4:28 pm

So I just got this email in my inbox, and almost immediately deleted it, but found it a bit intriguing. They also link directly to LST in the email, which I thought was cool.

Mississippi College on LST

tl;dr - Top 50% stip, $30,000 total tuition, 55% c/o 2012 employed at 9 months. Other than NU's AJD option, this is the first accredited school I've seen that offers a 2-yr JD (or are there more?). Is this perhaps a sign of things to come?

Fairly reasonably priced (30k total tuition if I'm reading correctly) and links to LST? Impressive for a school I've never heard of. Their job numbers are also not horrendous. This seems like it might not be a bad idea for someone from Miss who doesn't get into a good school with money.

Am I crazy?

This is exactly what I was thinking. Unlike other 2-yr programs (of which there aren't many), this is the first I've seen that pairs a hefty discount. Top 50% is not an unreasonable stipulation given that if you were below that, you'd probably be out of the running for a job anyway. And your 1 year investment would only be two semesters of tuition and 9 months COL in Mississippi...

For a law school with an LSAT median of 150, it is actually a decent option if you want to work in jackson, MS. it has somehow built a fairly good reputation in the area.

"In our current 1L class 93% of those with a 154/3.25 are in the top 50%."

All you "can't predict where you are going to finish at lessor schools" trolls, please take note.

It's two years plus a summer. So it's not that much shorter.

That 2 year property class would suck though.
