Valparaiso Law School’s travails continue to generate more press. Some highlights from AboveTheLaw.com:
— “Valparaiso administrators couldn’t even give this law school away as a gift.”
— “If there’s anything worse than having tens of thousands of dollars of law school debt hanging over your head, it’s having law school debt from a school that doesn’t exist anymore. For those students who choose to stick it out, we’d encourage them to hold onto their law degrees from the school, because they’ll be soon be collector’s items.”
— “There’s a lesson to be learned here for students: If you continuously hear negative things about your school, perhaps it’s time to get out, before it’s too late.”

And now this: “Missing from this year’s list was Valparaiso Law School. Traditionally, the northwest Indiana institution has been included in the rank-not-published category, but the school is no longer accepting students and has announced its intention to cease operations in 2020.” Ouch!
Ouch! https://www.theindianalawyer.com/articles/50047-two-indiana-law-schools-soar-on-ultimate-bar-passage-rate “Notre Dame Law School and Indiana University Maurer School of Law classes of 2016 bested the national average with passage rates of 94.01 percent and 93.55 percent, respectively. Valparaiso Law School’s 2016 graduates scored an ultimate rate of 65.99 percent.”
Haha. Makes perfect sense. Like the Caribbean Medical Schools.
Memo to Barry Pruett: No, this is not “fake news.” It is true! ROFLOL.
Imagine graduating from a university that is shutting down — in the legal profession, no less. Can you spell “podunk”? ROFLOL.
Imagine being a supposedly blissful newlywed (well, going on #2), but instead spending your Saturday afternoon grinding axes on an obscure blog. Misery loves company! ROFLOL.
Meanwhile, here’s a sample of Todd’s literacy . In a breatheless (sic) post (yup, that’s how he spells the title of his blog, no less) he writes “cause”. No Todd, the comma belongs INSIDE the quote mark. As the “Grammar Girl” points out: “… in American English we always put periods and commas inside quotation marks.”
So let me get this straight: One is a small-town lawyer whose law school is shutting down. And the other is practically illiterate. Small towns are a hoot!
But wait there’s more: Todd’s rant also states … so-called “educated” … Nope, it’s so-called educated (no quote marks). That is a tautology. https://www.grammar-monster.com/lessons/quotation_marks_meaning_alleged_so-called.htm
Todd wouldn’t know a tautology if it walked up and shook his hand! Small towns are a hoot.
