Stop the madness!
Of course, there's nearly nothing in the article about whether there's actually room in the market for another law school. It's mostly about real estate value and what a bunch of students spending loan money can do for the area. There is this statement:
Kaplan's backers argue that it offers important opportunities for low-income students. Washington is already home to law schools run by American University, Catholic University, George Washington University, Georgetown University, Howard University and the University of the District of Columbia.Unless they are charging a buck for law school--I find this to be a lie, a farce, a major misrepresentation.
There was a link in that blurb... "argue" which I hoped would direct me to the website where the costs for attending KSL would be spelled out. NOPE. Instead, it directs you to an article about how Obama is trying to tighten the supply of federal monies to schools opened by companies and their major lobbying efforts against this type of legislation. Not helpful. They need that money to line their pockets with the over inflated tuition, I'm sure.
Anybody who decides to attend this new school is an idiot. There are plenty of options in that area and no reason in the world to sink so low--unless you want a one-stop shop. I'm joking of course... there is no benefit to a one stop shop in the law. I hope Kaplan goes under.
