I will as much as I can, if said individual knew I was on here, they would never talk to me again! From what I understand, Deen Shinn, who this person thought was great, will probably be deposed, as well as a Dean T. Sang? Who has favorable testimony. The others are on te list, but maybe not so great. The person did say both Harrison's were great!! Criminal law and LP, not so much. But, we will talk later. Also, said person had a fellow member of the bar with them, when everything was reported.

Let me ask you a question. Why are you so bitter? What is your problem with ASL? Did you flunk out, or something? I don't understand why on earth you would be downing someone trying to get a higher, better education and do well for themself. I believe you are just an angry, bitter person with a chip on their shoulder. Stop downing people who are succeeding.
It sounds like this person is a disgruntled person who did not make it at the ASL. Just because you weren't able to graduate from this great establishment, by no means makes it any less of a school. They are accredited, and prestigious. Choose another profession, and chalk it ip as not making the grade.

With everything that is going on in school such as the Sandy Brooke shooting I recalled an incident that was on facebook in October a student at Twinvalley High School made a comment that the next day she was at school she was going on a shooting/killing rampage A certain principle at the other school seen it also and went to the school board also parents were calling the school about this matter they seen it on face book. My question to this is We as parents should be informed of this going on in our childrens school and the person making these comments should be taken from the school and put in an alternative schooling program away from the regular classroom. This useless act of threating, bullying and killing innocent has to start somewhere why not start with this sitution. This student has not been to school since why? Why dont we as parents know about this? Even The Voice has not printed this story Earl please check into this and let the parent know their rights and how if anything can be done. Alot of people depend on your paper for the things that seemed to be kept quit in this county I do know this girl had to get a lawyer and the court date is in Jan. pleas see if you can tell us what rights we have, as parents to know about thesetypes of thing in all schools

Just heard the news. What a shame, you wonder what is going on in people's minds when they casually dismiss a request, and cause so much harm. Do people really not care anymore, what a said situation.

Plan to go to ASL. Yes, Grundy is a small mountain Virginia town. Their population has some folks who do not appreciate the school....but they have a negative view on lots of things. I think it's pretty typical of people in mountain towns. They want to keep everything local. They don't appreciate a diverse population; however, that is not what the school is about. It's about providing you with a good education and at a decent cost. You will be busy studying... That what counts the most. I'm from Grundy; however, sometimes I'm sad the people there are resistant to change. Sad for them. They can't see the forest for the trees. Maybe there is a bit of fear because they have inadequate personalities.... As do so many areas with mountain people. Only time time will improve that.

Also, there are so many great people there. There is a Baptist church right by the school. Attend the church....you'll meet some wonderful, caring people. They will help you become part of the community where you are studying.

Hypocrite. Actions of previous students have absolutely nothing to do with peoples notions of your peers.

The law school tends to draw by in large a particular personality type. Open yourself to the towns people and you will see a difference. No one here has any problems with the local Pharmacy students because that profession tends to draw in less dick heads and obnoxious pricks. Argue with me all you want but its the underlying simple truth of the matter. Hell, you all cant get along with each other.

I am from Grundy. I am also proud that my Jr high and elementary schools where updated and are part of the ASL. If you choose to come to ASL You will find that it is a small town with very little to do. But you are going to be studying very hard so the recreation you have will have to be the same as those who live here. When you get the time you will drive the 80 miles to Bristol and spend a couple days to unwind. Bristol is large enough to have anything you will need for entertainment purposes. Yes you get on this topix and you hear some haters. You will get that in any town in any state and most of the time it is just jealousy that they cant get into ASL or they are just from the head of a hollow and still go to family reunions to pick up women as Jeff would say. So if you come to Grundy, welcome to the beautiful mountains and the best wrestling high school program around 17 state championships. Not bad uh and if you cant make it in school the other thing we can offer you is a shovel because we do have coal in these hills and thats all we have but we are proud people that will welcome anyone who wants to be a part of our community.

I like to plant a few trees behind the law school on the hill side every year, but the other year someone robbed my crops. Stay out of my dope patch, grow your own thanks. Support your local growers.

No normal, decent individual or family makes a life decision based on what they read on Topix. That would be insane, this still is the Internet guys and not Actuality. The majority of the content is just absurd on all levels.

It is difficult to argue that cost is a good reason to go to the Appalachian School of Law. The list below includes law schools as they appear in US News and World Report. Beside the schools are their tuition. The eleven ranked schools that are in Appalachian's market cost nearly as much as Appalachian, which is isn't ranked. Further, according to Top Law Schools, Appalachian displays their AVERAGE (which skews the figure up) starting salary as around 44,000. This is compared to the six figure MEAN that students at the first six schools on this list report. As such, why would anyone want to pay as much or more to go to Appalachian only to make less money?

University of Virginia 46,400
Duke 50,750
Washington and Lee 43,462
University of North Carolina 37,066
William and Mary 27,800
Wake Forest 39,920
George Mason 24,623
University of Richmond 36,850
University of Kentucky 33,618
University of Tennessee 36,422
University of Louisville 34,026
Appalachian School of Law 31,525

Also, the "practical skills" argument could be reframed this way: You can go to the Appalachian School of Law for three years to learn the "rules." This is similar to many less expensive paralegal programs offered through some community colleges. By practical, I think they mean they have such a small faculty that they can only teach the most basic legal courses, leaving many of their students not as prepared as larger schools that will permit law students to gain a deeper understanding of civil procedure, persuasion, and much more technical aspects of certain practice areas.

I understand certain arguments in support of Appalachian and their mission, but I don't think these arguments compensate for leaving unknowing students with close to 100k in non-dischargable debt and no job. Moreover, many of these students will practice in the same region. On the surface this is a good thing, providing greater access to cheaper legal services. However, it is not fair for people who may be in trouble to hire a cheap lawyer who is barely "qualified" practice.
