Anybody notice how this seems like a nice fluff piece on SCU and not a real assessment of the school? Notice any sections missing? Where is the "employment prospects" heading? Ima start a petition.
You should note that these articles are not updated all of the time and the employment prospects during a recession do not mean much in the future. The school used to do great for all IP related things and still does have good regional placing. The problem is that the region has taken a hit.
So, it is really unpredictable where the school be employment wise in the next 5-10 years.
Fair enough, my problem is that the article in its entirety feels like it was written by Santa Clara admin officers. In fact it states it was written "with kind assistance from the administration of Santa Clara Law School, particularly Dean Polden (read the Polden Interview); Dean of Admissions Jeanette Leach (read the Leach Interview); and Assistant Deans Julia Yaffee and Alexandra Horne (read Horne Interview)."
And thats all fine and good. Just wish there was an article that gave an honest assessment, like pretty much every other school review on TSL. Despite what the job prospects may or may not be (I'm seriously considering going so I'm taking the gamble that the recession is causing more panic then it deserves) the profile doesn't address them at all, its missing the "employment prospects" heading you find in every other profile. This is simply an incomplete profile, or if I wanted to be cynical SCU left that off for obvious reasons.
But thats my main complaint, this article feels like it was written by SCU and is completely worthless.
