The background is simple. A friend is thinking of attending this school, and I would like to convince him to give the whole thing some more thought (preferably without coming off as an elitist bastard). I'm not looking to say these schools are never worth attending or anything like that...
Also, I'd specifically be interested to know if anyone has reason to suspect Western New England's scholarships are suspect. I hear some schools put all the students with high scholarships in one section and the curve assures that a high number of people lose them--higher than might otherwise be the case if such students were evenly distributed around the school; any word on how widespread this is/whether Western New England does this?
Hopefully this thread doesn't go too far down the toilet =X.

Obviously, it's not a portable degree, but if you are in the area for the long haul, you can still have good results if you finish at the top of your class. (Also, if you are at the top of your class, there can be no risk of aid being revoked).

Also curious as to why your friend applied to WNEC School of Law since he or she must have decent Tier Two numbers to get a scholarship.
Springfield is not nice, although some of the surrounding area is beautiful. This law school accepts a lot of immature college kids. Employment prospects are dismal. Small local firms & local government.

The one guy I know who graduated back in the early 90s is a huge success with his own practice, but he had help being from a family of established lawyers. the rest all have mediocre jobs, no one makes significant $$ from what I see.
The sections are few and small, I cant imagine they do that scholarship yank thing you mentioned.
