Law School Applications Soar After Killings There

April 15, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Applications to the Appalachian School of Law in Grundy have increased dramatically in the three months since a gunman killed the dean, a professor and a student on campus.

As of April 6, the school had received 587 applications for the coming academic year. At the same time one year ago, 387 people had applied. The school expects to have an incoming class of 125 in the fall. That will boost total enrollment to about 300.

The increase in applications, officials contend, is credited in part to the attention brought by the Jan. 16 shooting.
