The NYTimes reported on the practices of law schools in attracting students as well as the deep hole of debt those students are digging to attend (link here). You could easily be confused that this is another piece looking at the processes and results of for-profit universities. Could it be that the problems of debt and phony job placement rates are not isolated to for-profits.
Someone once told me that academia was a game. When I asked what he meant he told me to investigate college ratings, debit, admissions processes, etc. Apparently, he was not the only one that understood the problem. An admissions councilor for a state university MBA Program admitted to me that her job was to attract a deep candidate pool and keep the money rolling into the school’s coffers. Game on?
