Yet More Evidence That It's Hard to be a "Sophisticated Consumer" If You Are a Prospective Law Student.
Earlier today Paul Campos published a post about an article that appeared on Forbes's blog titled Grad School: Still Worth the Money? The article in question is nothing more than a misleading and blatantly false propaganda piece encouraging people to go to graduate school written by the owner of a graduate school entrance exam test prep company.
I don't have anything to add to what Professor Campos had to say other than to point out that this sort of crap makes it difficult for prospective law students to be "sophisticated consumers" as the judge who dismissed the class action lawsuit against New York Law School seems to believe. As Professor Campos points out, Forbes is (or at least used to be) a reputable publication. If the content in Forbes cannot be trusted, then who are prospective students supposed to turn to when they are researching the value of attending law school? Who is more trustworthy and reputable, Forbes or anonymous loudmouth malcontent bloggers whose work is relatively obscure?
