It's some truth and ignorance when it comes to these rankings but a law degree is the same and it's what you do with it.


You know more than me.

At first I thought you were talking about the SPLC. But this is a law school? Yikes.

Had never heard of it myself. It's this rancid shithole: http://www.lstscorereports.com/?school=southern.

At least it's fairly inexpensive relative to most other TTTT dung heaps.

If no one's ever even heard of your law school, that's a bad sign.

Can't beat a 146 median for a real school. Do they have an 8th grade to JD option?

Yes, there are people who have been admitted to this law school. According to the ABA data, 403 students were recently admitted. This works out to be roughly forty percent (403/1049) of total number of applicants who applied to this school, so you have a decent chance of being admitted as long as you try hard enough on the LSAT.


A 40% acceptance rate? :lol:

That must be one of the highest rates in the country.

They damn sure did. Well the ABA stats. My bad. When I scanned for it, I missed it. Will edit. Thanks.

Haha, no worries, can never have too much LST.

Also, 2.84 median GPA? The fuck?

LOL, look at the change in standards too. The 2.84 is AFTER it skyrocketed up.

Ranking among the "Best Law Schools for Public Service" in 2012 by preLaw Magazine.[5]
Ranking first among law schools awarding "Law Degrees With Most Financial Value at Graduation" in 2011 by U.S. News & World Report.[6]
Ranking fourth most popular law school by U.S. News & World Report.[7]
Ranking in the top ten among law schools for competitiveness and diverse faculty and student body in the 2000 edition of The Princeton Review: The Best Law Schools.
Ranking third among institutions awarding law degrees to African Americans by Black Issues in Higher Education (2000)
Ranking first among accredited law schools in the country for women-friendliness in a Woman’s Guide to Law Schools (1999)
Ranking in the top 20 percent of the nation’s accredited law schools in favorable student/faculty ratio (13:1)

quite frankly, it seems to be a school with more URMs, which may be often admitted with lower statistics than other students from the same school(not debating about URMs, just stating a fact), and by having many URMs at one particular school, the school could appear to have low medians even though its actual quality may be on par with some schools with better stats
