I hate for profit education centers. The focus is on profit and not quality education. And, with a 58% rate of passing the bar, this suggests they are getting a lower quality student, or providing a lower quality product, or both.

It's as valuable as you want it to be. No degree guarantees anything. The person who holds the degree is what drives the value. The school provides the tools for your journey, you make the decisions in your career.

Now- does the school "adequately prepare you" absolutely. In my opinion, more so than most the other law schools in the Carolina's.

You make a great point, your education is as valuable as your success and hapiness. however, my point is that for profit institutions are not as interested in your education as they are in profit. I'm sure you have soe quality people, after al, you all are college graduates. I met one gentleman from there who played for and graduated from Vandy, a 7-footer. So, you likely know who he is. Vanderbilt is an superior institution of higher education. So, pulling graduates like that say a great deal about the students and the institution. But, it does not change the profit motive.

I wish you the very best of luck in your career!
