Always Be Accrediting: Concordia Joins the Round Table

Always.  Be.  Accrediting.
The Concordia University School of Law has received provisional accreditation from the American Bar Association as the Boise school’s first graduates – nine students – prepare to get their degrees.
A. B. A.  A-Always, B-Be, A-Accrediting.  Always be accrediting!  Always be accrediting!   A-I-D-A. Attention, interest, decision, action. Attention:  do I have your attention? Interest: are you interested? I know you are because it's fuck or walk. You accredit or you hit the bricks! Decision: have you made your decision for Christ?  They've been waiting since August!  And action. A-I-D-A: get out there!! You got the prospects buildin' law schools; you think they build a school to get out of the rain? Guy doesn't enroll lemmings unless he wants it accredited. Sitting out there waiting to give you their money so they can extract even more from hapless lemmings! Are you gonna take it? Are you man enough to take it?

Thank God someone was man enough to finally accredit this place.  That's nine more attorneys to help fight back against unmet legal needs in Lewiston and Nampa.

Next stop on the accreditation express, Fort Wayne!  Toot toot!  (Note that Indiana Tech's provisional accreditation will come next year, just in time for its 2016 graduates to sit for the bar exam).

  2. Darn darn darn darn darn-ey darn!

    I guess this is poetic justice for me taking a swipe at Concordia just a few days ago. The gods must be crazy.

  3. Get Mad you son of a bitches Get Mad!!!

    You know what it takes to accredit law schools?

    It takes Brass Balls to accredit law schools.

  4. Concordia's first class - the ones graduating now - started at 74 students. They had a bit of the natural attrition all schools do, but suffered a mass exodus when the school failed to get accreditation last year when the first applied. Most went to University of Idaho but a few went elsewhere. Even though CU squeaked by the accrediting process ( or greased sufficient palms) I doubt many of those departed students regret their decision to leave. I guess that point will prove itself or not by how many of those 3Ls transfer back to CU in order to graduate and have the Costa-Concordia School of Law as their school of record. Due to transfer rules on the number of credits the receiving institution will accept, those students are in the unenviable position of tarring themselves as graduates of the Costa-Concordia SoL or completing essentially a 4th year of law school. It will be interesting to see what happens in this regard. Rumors have surfaced the the Concordia University 'leadership" has drafted plans for winding down the lawschool had either their second accreditation bid failed or they cannot get their enrollment up. The first scenario is off the table for now, but this does not necessarily solve their second issue. At least now they no longer have the excuse of "just waited til we are accredited" for their low enrollments. Their second and third enrolled classes were only 44 and 50 students respectively. This next year's enrollment total will be very telling.

  5. Law Firm Partner: "These are the new jobs. These are the decent law jobs. And to you they're gold and you don't get them. Why? Because to give them to you is just throwing them away. They're for cronies."
