Might sound made up, but honest I typed "scam law school" into Google dot com hoping to find information about Roger Williams and sure enough…a thread was one of the results. There used to be a few gems on this board about RWU but apparently they purge the messages every year or so. Sad, really. They should at least make an archive available of old messages.

But yeah, Roger Williams is a definite scam. If you have $30,000 burning a hole in your pocket, feel free to enroll. Chances are terribly low that youre going to graduate. They clearly pull the same crap that Cooley does—accept a lot of students knowing full well that a large percent of them will not complete the first year. Its hard wired into the system there that a large number of students CANT finish the first year.

Just one of many scams that that place is running. If you didnt get in anywhere else and youre a high stakes gambler, perhaps give it a go. Otherwise forget it. Actually, even if it is the only place you get in (other than Cooley, of course which should also be avoided) Id recommend re-evalutating your options. There are other things to do. But if you really want to go to law school, just get a job in a law firm or something and re-apply to legitamate schools next year.
