The good news doesn't stop there. Charleston has been mightily rewarded for its dogged perseverance. Look at how high it has hoisted itself:
Bell’s splashiest proposal at the time, making the school a nonprofit, is still in the works as the school files paperwork with multiple regulatory groups. As part of the process, the school has paid off $6 million it owed to InfiLaw after backing out of the deal — partly using the school’s funds, partly using Bell’s own money, according to the attorney. Bell said he believes the school can complete the transition by early 2020.Money well spent, sir! I mean, just look at how the fine specimens develop:
Charleston School of Law’s bar passage rates have lagged for years, a phenomenon that Bell and other college officials have blamed in part on the InfiLaw deal. Some of the school’s top-performing students transferred out shortly after the deal was announced in 2015. Bell said the influx of Charlotte transfers might also be a factor.According to Law School Transparency, CSOL has a 44% employment score, a 46.7% bar passage rate, a robust LSAT spread of 143-151, and a non-discounted cost of $241,146.
...Change is coming, Bell said. With more applicants each year, the cutoff LSAT scores for entry to the Charleston School of Law are on the rise.
“It’s becoming harder to get in. Our profile of students has gone up,” Bell said.
Brother, if that's not progress to brag about, I don't know what is. What a happy epilogue for all involved. You dance, Charleston. You dance. And scam on.
