Law school is losing it’s mojo. Prospective students are taking note. If you go to law school, you won’t be making money, you’ll be owing it. [But I Did Everything Right!]
Increasing student loans outstanding. Increasing student loan defaults. Move along. Nothing to see here. [All Education Matters]

What if we sat down and tried to determine which degree programs were worth keeping? [EduBubble]
Why for-profit colleges deserve to be scrutinized by Congress. Notice, that wasn’t a question. [Higher Ed Watch]
The worst thing to do in a crisis is to allow it to drag on. And that’s what Villanova Law is doing. The school recently admitted that it lied to the ABA about its admissions statistics. I postulated that the school may have inflated its LSAT or under-reported the number of students it enrolled each year. Apparently, the ABA is now saying that the school lied about its GPA and LSAT scores.
Law schools juice their numbers. But before today, no school has admitted that they flat out lied. As reported on legal tabloid Above the Law, second-tier toilet Villanova Law just admitted to knowingly reporting false admissions stats to the American Bar Association, the accrediting body for law schools. Dean John Y. Gotanda emailed the school’s alumni with the following letter:
- Pwn (v.) Slang term derived from the verb own, as meaning to appropriate or to conquer to gain ownership. The term implies domination or humiliation of a rival.
