Damn, this school became a punchline fast. Was it the photojournalism piece documenting the UMN Law dungeon where the chairs are chained down so the students can't steal them that set things off?
I think it has more to do with the school doors being left open all the time (so students can utilize the space) that forced the school to take measures to protect its assets.
So... by your reasoning, the school chaining down its cheap, plastic furniture is not a sign of dysfunction, but rather a selling point
? Nary has such spin been seen outside of a political campaign.

Wow. You sure like commenting authoritatively on topics, of which you have no discernable expertise. And by the way, the school is not "left open all the time (so students can utilize the space)." The building and the classrooms are locked after hours, just like at any other law school. Indeed, just like any other law school, which doesn't
distrust its own students so much it feels the need to chain down its ratty old furniture.
Of course, I suppose you'd have to actually be a UMN law student to know that about UMN Law. And I guess that's why the usual flow of information goes from
current law students and grads toward
prospectives interested in attending the school, rather than the other way around. But feel free to swim against the current, rebellious minnow. Care to tell me what classes I should take next semester?
And by the by, UMN is a great punchline. Look:
Joe: Knock Knock!
Mary: Who's there?
Joe: UMN Law Grad.
Mary: UMN Law Grad who?
Joe: UMN Law Grad can't get a goddamn job, got screwed by an incompetent administration repeatedly, went to school in a dungeon, was taught legal writing by bottom-feeders-in-the-MN-legal-market adjuncts, subjected to P&P torture, hates his life and is ready to jump off a tall building. Oh, and by the way, here's your fucking pizza; thanks for choosing Papa Johns.
thunderous laughter ensues
