What's interesting to me is that GULC is the only T14 that has a part-time program.

Any chance they end it?

Part time is more profitable than FT because far fewer students receive financial aid. Considering their class sizes, I don't think they've got a real incentive to get rid of it

Yeah, it's too profitable. Not a few employers have a good employee, realize they need a good lawyer, and are willing to pay (or at least help with) the cost at sticker. Anecdotally, I've heard this is especially true for some government employers who might find it difficult to fire someone once they have the job.

Well that, and the fact that people who study part time have jobs

They also like to market themselves as the top PT program. I don't think they'd give that up.
