Haha! Very important caveat that I did not know. Is it still in place? I guess I would assume so, since they linked to it on the admitted students website.
I mean, sort of? Some of it was implemented, some of it wasn't, and there isn't a new plan (yet?). The new dean has kept some of Dean VanZ's pet issues going (like the work experience, although it has softened somewhat to maintain the medians). But others, like VanZ's predilection for hiring faculty with PhD instead of JDs, are getting sort of let go (I think?).
But I wouldn't go into my on-campus interview spouting quotes from the 2008 Plan.
Good things to point out. My interview/decision is over, but I just wanted to pass along the find from the ASW. It's interesting they are still linking to it on the current site even though its the old dean's plan.
