Survey Says Charleston Students Are Quitters, May Bail En Masse in Infilaw Buys School

From Charleston City Paper:
In a recent survey, 96 percent of Charleston School of Law students said they do not support the impending sale of their school to Florida-based education company InfiLaw System. In the same survey, 82 percent of first-year law students and 52 percent of second-year law students said they would consider transferring to a different law school if the proposed sale were to go through.
This begs the question, of course, of what would happen if InfiLaw put its silver-coated hands in every law school in the country.  Would these wimps go to Canada?  Find another profession for their worthless liberal arts degrees?

Talk about a lack of diligence and perseverance that signals a very poor prognosis for a legal career.   If you can't handle InfiLaw, how are you going to handle it when that large firm buys out your sweet MidLaw/Boutique firm and your liquor bar is replaced by a different liquor bar?  How are you going to react when the Chinese take shit over and your $100,000 invoices are paid in yen?  Law, in many ways, is all about picking yourself up when the world shoves you down.

And of course, their fears are irrational.  Don't take it from me, take it from the Charleston City Paper:
InfiLaw has come under fire from local law students and lawyers, despite the fact that its three existing law schools in Phoenix, Ariz., Jacksonville, Fla., and Charlotte, N.C., report average tuition costs and bar passage rates similar to CSOL's (the enrollment numbers and student-to-faculty ratios, however, are higher at InfiLaw schools than at CSOL).
See?  You stupid law students.  You'll go from excellent to excellent under the care of InfiLaw.  What are you going to do?  Transfer to Villanova or McGeorge?  Good luck with that.


  1. Yes, the students may consider transferring. They'd better hurry up, though. Once InfiScam takes over, professors are going to quit writing recommendations for students trying to transfer.

  2. I think InfiScam is going to need a new name for this JD factory once they finish their debt-funded buyout. How about Southeastern Summit? Or maybe Pawmetto Pyramid? American Dream? Southern Comfort?

  3. Reality Check, kids!

    You cannot transfer more than 30 credits (your first year in law school) to any school in the country.

    MYSTERIOUSLY, ALL the ABA accredited schools do not accept more than 30 transfer credits!!

    And THAT is how you protect price inflation during the tenure of your students. Each that long, hard pole of 30% year-over-year price increases or take a sunk cost loss, bitches.
