Albany Law School Freezes Tuition

Here is a new one. A law school, Albany, freezes its tuition because of the poor economy. The ABA Journal Blog states:

Dean Thomas Guernsey told the National Law Journal that the decision was made in recognition of the financial stress that many students are facing. In "these particularly uncertain times, we want to do what we can to make it easier for students who are the ones who are incurring all this debt,” Guernsey said.

A law school press release says a survey shows other law schools are increasing tuition by 3 percent to 15 percent. The National Law Journal gives two examples for law schools at the lower end of the range: Stanford is increasing tuition by 3.75 percent and Saint Louis University by 3 percent.

I for one do not believe for a minute that this has anything to do with the poor economy. Its about recruitment and ratings like it always is.

Not to mention that the tuition at Albany Law is $37,000 already, and thats more than most schools in the state with better rankings.
