"This means that those entering law school in fall 2013 not only have the easiest path into law school, they will also have the lowest competition for new jobs in nearly three decades when they graduate. It appears that the market has already overcorrected."

Overcorrected? When there are 2 grads for every job???


I initially read this as it taking 3 decades to graduate from Cooley. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Is this even grammatically correct? Doesn't it need to be "graduating" classes or am I just retarded?


No kappycaft1, you're good. At least from my knowledge of grammar, this is grammatically incorrect. However I'd hardly call this surprising. It is Cooley we're talking about here. Incorrect grammar is the last thing we should be troubled with, in my opinion.

Not to bash on another TTT, but the subject line in an email I received from Toledo back in December said: "Appy to Toledo Law - You May Qaulify for a Full-Tuition Scholarship." No joke.

Technically, yeah, it should be, so you're right. But to be fair, the distinction between "these data" and "this data" is disappearing in modern English, and most people use "this data" because data is used nowadays as a singular mass noun meaning information.

But, I digress. :)

that wasn't a digression at all. you were specifically addressing the topic at hand.

the fact that many people make the same mistake doesn't justify calling it accurate. I don't think data is becoming singular, people are just misusing it all the time. wtf was this thread about again?

See my above link. Both are correct depending on if it is used as a mass noun or count noun.
