2000 more words on the Ave Maria School of Law Development

The development and history of Ave Maria School of Law, AMSOL. Mean LSATs obtained by averaging the 75th percentile and the 25th percentile number. Class arithmetic mean may be different.

Click either picture to see the full size version.

The law school seems to have three distinct periods of three years each. Before Monaghan, After Monaghan, and Pre-move.

There may be other historical events that others would want included on this chart, but feel free to mention those in the comments. What's important here is to see that ramping up class enrollment was only the first drop in quality.

NOTICE that in the first 6 years, the 25% of the lowest end of the class was spread across three tiers. In the last three years, the bottom 25% of the AMSL classes is guaranteed to be 4th tier, and from the dregs of the fourth tier to boot.
