Just as calories provide only one measure of the potential value, it does not provide a conclusive measure. In fact, something that is very low in calories, but also has no nutrients might be worse for you than something that is high in calories but also high in nutrients.
90% of the concern for 90% of the prospective students here is jobs (ie, calories). No one cares about the other stuff, because a quality education is easily obtained at 100+ other institutions. That's not a distinguishing characteristic and therefore it isn't a selling point. This has been explained to you by a diverse group of current and former students. Yet, you continue to ignore this. That is why people are suggesting that you're willfully ignorant or an adcomm (adcomm being the typical person who is actually incentivized to behave in such a way).
UDC through its clinical program offers a unique opportunity to get hands on experience, particularly in public interest. Throughout the curriculum, even as a 1L, students get involved directly with the community, notably with the more vulnerable demographics within DC. You should really consider checking our clinical program out - it's actually ranked third in the country by the ABA.
How are the clinics "unique" when the majority of schools offer similar programs? Any reason other than that 1Ls can participate? And what's the point of this "unique" "hands on experience" if nobody will hire you when you graduate to even do the things you learned in clinic?
