Although that's touching, and funny, this is the "April Fool's Day" version of an article. I'm sure you know this though.

You realize that this is an April Fool's joke, right?

“Its really only fair,” said Mark Weber, HLS’ Assistant Dean for Career Services. “When HLS makes each student an offer to enroll in the J.D. program, that offer carries the implied promise of a $160K starting salary at a prestigious law firm immediately following a lavish post-bar exam trip. HLS is under a contractual obligation to refund the tuition of students who find themselves in the unprecedented ‘no-offer’ situation.”


That line should have tipped off, to anyone with half a brain, that the article was a joke.

LOL. If any school actually made this promise, I would think every teenager would do anything possible to get into Harvard Law. LOL.

What should have tipped him off was that Harvard, of all schools, was purportedly doing the refunds. The mentality at Harvard would be "an unemployed Harvard grad is better off than 50% of the employed people in the world". Given that attitude, why in hell would they give anything back? :roll:
