University officials at Indiana Tech are not worried about lower enrollment numbers at the new law school when it opens next month for the fall semester.
When the university announced it would add a law school, which cost around $15 million, the plan was to have 100 students enrolled in the inaugural class.
As of Friday night, 24 students had enrolled.
"The hundred number, I think, was more aspirational," Jessica Lynn Anderson, an assistant dean of admissions at Indiana Tech, said. ..."I really do think 30 is a more reasonable number and I think we are going to hit 30," she said.
"Aspirational." Riiiight. When the new school was announced, some of us wondered whether a new lawyer factory was something Indiana or the country really needed. Maybe we should take this as a hopeful sign that we might have reached some sort of saturation point.
