It is my opinion that is has been implied directly to staff in the CSO that they need to hit 85% employment this year or heads are going to roll in the office and there may be some misreporting on their part- I'll let an ABA audit whenever it happens be the final say.
It is also my opinion that the foundation board and and state legislature has talked directly to the administration about their abysmal numbers. It is also my opinion that the dean and administration claimed they planned for 94 students to matriculate this year despite the school running a huge budget deficit and the numbers being lower than the class sizes in the 1930's/40's. It is also my opinion that the law school has hired outside consultants that have visited the school on numerous occasions to fix the application problem. It is also my opinion that the law school is overhauling the interior of the school at the suggestion of the consultants to get more students to attend. It is also my opinion that these consultants were at the school last week. It is also my opinion that the law school has now resorted to soliciting scholarship students to panhandle to get money for the school to meet their $50mm campaign. It is also my opinion that the law school administration and faculty has recruited IP students to go to engineering and science career fairs to recruit on behalf of the law school to fill their seats.
All of this is my opinion simply because I know the school trolls this forum and I would hate for any of my comments to be taken as anything more than hearsay for fear of a defamation suit. (It is my opinion that the school is struggling for revenue whether by crook or hook.)
That being said, there are a lot easier ways to make $ as an MBA practically any other profession in Nebraska/ South Dakota /North Dakota that are having huge investment / construction booms.
Shots fired. Wow.
