The more important question for laxbrah: do you think the government should continue to artificially inflate the number of law schools/graduates by providing gubmint funding to dumb-as-shit 22-year-olds? Or should we let the free market (i.e., cut student loans) drive that number down to its natural state?
a. The obvious answer is to buy a blazer if you like wearing blazers.
b. This question is not even in the same ballpark as the OPs. Though the gumbint seems to peg its loan programs to ABA accreditation, the ABA is independent. The fact that private loans are at virtually the same rate kind of makes your point seem dumb too. Also, your notion of a "natural state" of education is outrageous considering the pervasiveness of public education and the implications of restricting it only to students it deems worthy.
If the administrators of the bar exam want to make the exam more difficult, so be it. But to suggest that schools should be closed because they're producing unemployed, but not necessarily incompetent lawyers is insanity.
