The doom and gloom over a news article is kind of ridiculous. We've all conceeded that this will clearly have some impact on our future employment statistics. However, continued speculation from someone who has no idea how the Philadelphia legal market functions is getting quite old. I've been born, raised, and educated in this area... and believe or not, Villanova's reputation isn't going to get crushed over night.
Villanova is, despite whatever the USNWR says, a very reputable school in the area. The hiring partners have maintained a very close-knit relationship to the school. If they were going to jump ship over a scandal, they would have left when they heard of the old Dean banging hookers and the whole peanut girl think. However, they didn't and Villanova's NLJ250 was in the top 50 in the country.
Like I said earlier, it'll probably primarily affect people not attuned to hiring VLS grads anyway. However, the people that donate money and remain active in the community will not just peace the fuck out. Despite what many think, these sorts of incidences cause people to stand by the school. Personally, if my UG was involved with something like this, I wouldn't run down the street yelling the sky is falling. I'd look at the facts, make an informed decision, and go from there. This is what 90% of our alumni will do.
Wow, I am officially done posting.
I cannot top that anyway. haha
