Convince him to take UC HasTTTTings. Tell him about dat UC prestige. He's going to lose that scholly and if he's the kind of guy that would go to WhiTTTTier in the first place, he's probably the kind of guy that is probably not going to drop out when he loses the scholarship. I'd rather have my friend get in a shit load of debt and a degree from UCD than literally anything from WhiTTTTTTTTTTTTier.

The idea of basing 2nd and 3rd year scholarship money is interesting, not interesting enough for me to ever go to a school that does it, but interesting nevertheless. Also top 20% to keep any kind of scholarship at all = :twisted:

Ummm... no.

This disparity between the school reported outcomes and the actual number of desireable outcomes seems to be why LST exists in the first place! But here is a point I can agree with (with a little editing):
Lloyd Jackson wrote: Accordingly, the ABA needs to do something about the blatant misreporting of data over the Internet because it is affecting the ability of intelligent graduates at good schools to find decent employment.

But again, that proves LST's point.

OP good luck with that conversation (if it hasn't already taken place, which seems likely since you posted this last Monday).

Not sure exactly. He wrote the letter to the ABA that kappycaft1 quoted earlier. Thought the letter never states any credentials. I tried looking him up and I thought this guyseemed like a possible match, but who knows. http://wvde.state.wv.us/boe/jackson.html
Maybe someone else knows more about him than I do.

My guess is that Lloyd is a current or past student at Florida Coastal who couldn't find a job in his own state because Harvard grads took all the jobs he wanted. (I just don't get why an educator in West Virginia would compare Florida Coastal to Harvard unless it was for the lulz, so that's why I don't think it was him... but you never know. :? )

:oops: You're probably right about LLoyd Jackson.

My SO has an old high school friend who just graduated from John Marshall and has passed the bar. No job lined up. She recently posted a question on her Facebook asking if anyone was looking for an attorney.
