Thanks for checking the schools after me man, it would have been really easy for me to miss one since I did so many. But I did New Mexico back on the 12th. I think I completed every state I said I'd do.

Jene, I didn't add LST's wikipedia page on any of mine. I just didn't consider doing that but I'm still not sure it adds any legitimacy. I mean, the main information we're using is the ABA disclosures from the schools' own websites and their tuition and fees. No one can claim we're just attacking the schools when we use their own information. LST just serves to reinforce that information.


You're using LST scores, the Employment Score and Under-Employment Score. Yes, the data underlying come from the ABA, but the sorting is LST. Moreover, the debt-financed cost uses our algorithm.

i just completed the very very fun process of checking work

u guys are amazing
it's so cool to think that a month ago almost every law school wikipedia article was an advertisement
and now the vast vast majority of them contain real cost and employment information; statistics 90% of 0Ls didn't know existed

this work is going to change a lot of lives in a very meaningful way
good work

if a school entry is listed as incomplete, it means
-the article is missing cost and/or employment information OR
-the cost and/or employment information is listed in a non-standard way OR
-the cost and/or employment information is outdated

maintaining consistent standards is important bc we want to help prospective law students be able to compare schools based on accurate, up-to-date, and consistent employment and cost data

as soon as the remaining schools are complete, the raffle shall begin!

I did Yale since we're in free-for-all mode. People need to know their chances of a job out of that TTT.

I can't believe someone would go through such lengths to defend a TTT.

I added the lower number to appease him. Now we know what it will cost someone to attend WesTTTTern if he/she is living at home or is self supporting.

I like how that guy is so concerned about the tuition and not the 36% under-employment rate. :roll:

I checked and am surprised to find that my edits have been left alone. I thought for sure someone would be stalking the LiberTTTy and RegenTTT articles.

Oh snap, we were editing NH at the same time. I undid my revisions. We had all kinds of employment and costs headings on that page.
