What kind of creature will populate the first class of Indiana Tech Law School in 2013? It's unaccredited and, as BUSINESS INSIDER reports, the American Bar Association won't even consider the matter of accreditation until the school has been operating at least a year. Annual tuition is $30,000. Nearby law schools such as Notre Dame have produced graduating classes with about a 40% unemployment rate.
People can't be figured out. Even after the market for college humanities professors crashed in the early 1970s, the best and brightest competed aggressively to be admitted into the downsized doctoral programs at universities like Michigan in Ann Arbor. At the time I was still trying to figure out what I had taken that path and was then unemployed. I didn't even attempt to break the code on the kind of career planning those seeking entry had.
