It's typically only mentioned as an afterthought that student loans cover the "full cost of attendance," i.e. not just tuition, but rent, food, and other living expenses. Now that Charlotte's students are denied student loans, they are no longer privy to the funds for living expenses that they previously received.

The Charlotte saga has now transitioned from tragedy into farce.

Just pathetic.

When will the Department of Education learn that enough is enough??? How many more Congressman will accept donations from companies doing activity that is downright criminal and ultimately causing far more harm to the economy than good. At least the defense contractors employ people with the federal money they get, even if it is for a short time. These for-profit law schools manage to unemploy people with the money they get.

I feel for the people but school is spinning this to its advantage and that is very disgusting.

To whom does the American public hold more sympathy for, starving JD's or Syrian refugees?

Is this a real question? Conservatives hate refugees but liberals embrace them. Lawyers on the other hand, regardless if you on the coasts or the heartland we are hated and despised. There is also no concern over destitute attorneys. That probably is wack off material for most Americans.

Leave it to a law school professor to put a band-aid on a gun shot wound. Let's fix the problem with 6 boxes of extra cereal and two loafs of bread left "under the microwave" in the commons.

Close the damn school already; this is a disgrace.

Really supports the scam law movement to which I never subscribed but am being slowly convinced of over the years.

Agreed. I'm not a scam conspiracy theorist. I try to give the law school industry the benefit of the doubt. Hell, I even contribute from time to time to my school (a 4th tier school that, at least when I attended, was not absurdly overpriced). But when you see something like this - a situation where by staying open, the school is actually hurting their students, its hard not to raise an eyebrow. I have long thought that the law school lawsuits were a bit absurd. The information was out there for most to see, long before signing on to attend. But what Charlotte Law School is doing here is tough to defend on any level.

Seriously. It's probably one of most blatant scams around. Produce intentionally misleading marketing materials promising six figure salaries upon graduation; charge absurd tuition rates (financed by federally backed loans available to pretty much anyone who can sign a promissory note); then shrug your shoulders when most of class graduates and ends up in doc review, low level personal injury law, not practicing law, or simply unemployed. Rinse and repeat.

Nonetheless, I'm glad that as the wheels really start to fall off (LOL @breadlines for law students), even the scam deniers are having a hard time defending the racket.

The worst thing that can happen to these 3Ls is graduating. Get that debt discharged and a fresh start without the stain of a Charlotte JD on your resume.
