They're dumping Rob Swartz?
Dean Schwartz is the Admissions and Financial Aid Dean. The Dean of the law school Dean Schill is now the UChicago Dean. Dean Yeazell is interim dean, and is not a candidate to be dean of the law school as defined by his role. I asked Dean Schwartz when to expect to hear about a new dean, and he basically said the search is still in progress, and they're hoping to make an announcement before start of classes in the Fall. He also told me that a major concern of the Dean will need to be the rising tuition, because if it goes up beyond the 50k projected for 2013 year, it is going to be bad for recruiting.
