COVID19 - time for law school's to finally lower obscene tuitions!!

Post by ThomasLocke » Sun Mar 22, 2020 3:37 pm

Thinking about how the economy is in a freefall, how tuition at law schools have been rising astronomically, how most are now going remote, how most students will be facing terrible job prospects, how there's so much energy in national headlines etc. right now for student debt reduction, bailouts etc., and how law students across the country have already shown their power in banding together during this crisis to effect change from the schools (eg going to Pass/Fail grading systems)...

In light of everything going on it really seems obscene that law schools would continue to charge what they do. This seems like the time for students to come together and draw attention to how obscene these prices have become and to find a way to bring them down.

Anyone working on this already? Anyone interested in getting something together?

Now's the chance, guys. There's hardly been a moment where schools would be more hard pressed than now to justify these astronomical price tags. We just need to mobilize...

If you and your buddies don't want to pay ~250k for Harvard (or any other T14 school), there is no shortage of people willing to take your spot. Schools will compromise on LSAT/GPA numbers before they compromise on price.

a lot of people graduating from undergrad are going to be applying to law school to buy themselves time and hide from the terrible job market. law schools know this.
