How far out we talking here? First graduating class?
How about we double down and say that SLS will be the premier legal training academy (too generous to call them a "law school," but "lawlz school" is apropos) of the new Tier V (TTTTT) law schools (i.e., schools that use a TTTT school's accredited status to open a new law school)
Requisites for membership are as follows:
1) In the employment category, each year there must be more graduating baristas than lawyers;
2) A location in a scenic, but forgettable and quaint town with a population less than 150,000;
3) An acronym that will lead to confusion with other pretentious and pompous academic institutions;
4) Pictures of special snowflakes adorning the halls, classrooms, and school promotional literature, to remind each person that chooses to attend the school that statistics, data, and facts are not enough to quell the dreamer inside of you;
5) Perhaps a slogan like "You can do it, if you defy the odds" would be fitting as well;
6) Not to mention, it would be ideal that these bastions of learning open their doors to eager legal scholars in the depths of a Great Recession because their job prospects upon graduation will certainly lead to great depression;
7) And last but not least, because there is tremendous competition in fighting to get law school applicants to attend each school, to entice these bright-eyed neophytes to attend these TTTTT institutions, the tuition will be a bargain-basement rate of just $40,000* (fully non-dischargeable of course).
*To calculate tuition amount: take annual median salary of all employed TTTTT graduates, multiply by 3, and add 10% annual tuition increases for good measure
