A lot of things;
from ASU's reduced student enrollment this year which means less money which means they will have a hard time keeping the better faculty.
I toured U of A law school last Friday. The students I met with all told me the say thing. They were accepted at both U of A and ASU. ASU said they would match U of A's scholarships. Shelli promised them that over the phone. They said she would never return her phone calls when they wanted it in writing. They eventually withdrew from ASU. Their friends who went to ASU believed Shelli's verbal scholarship offers/increases, but she also wouldn't return their phone calls. When they showed up on the first day of orientation, Shelli told them if she would have increased/offered them a scholarship, she would have put it in writing.
I am also scared that with the new GPA and LSAT reporting procedures that ASU will take a tumble in the rankings. The U of A students said that the U of A administration was partially behind the new reporting procedures because they had good reason to believe that ASU's numbers weren't real.
I am sure there is law school envy going on about the rank, but the continual fact that ASU is the least transparent law school in the nation scares me.
