VLS Seal[edit]

I have put an image of the VLS seal on wikipedia three times now, and twice its been removed as suspect. This image was provided BY VLS, it is the correct image, etc. (please see the seal for further copyright information). If anyone has any questions or comments regarding the seal, please notify me so I can address them. Crogle94 (talk) 20:39, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

 Done. Both the coordinates in the article and those you supplied appear to be incorrect. I've emended the coordinates to correspond to the location indicated on the school's Web site. Deor (talk) 17:34, 18 June 2012 (UTC)

Edits of 18 February 2013 by anonymous at 70.180.225.229[edit]

Major edits to this page were performed on February 18, 2013, by an anonymous author at IP address 70.180.225.229. These edits distort the accuracy of the Vermont Law School Wikipedia entry by overemphasizing minor current events (such as including a special entry on staffing numbers), repeating information already on the page (such as the accurate tuition) and by prioritizing less significant information through an emphasis on a single source (Law School Transparency site).

First: The scope of these edits that emphasizes current events, such as staff cutbacks, by prioritizing that information at the top of the page, should be re-edited to better reflect the significance of that information. Seems plainly of lower priority than the profile of the entering class, the description of actual campus and facilities, and academic offerings. Wikipedia pages should not be current events forums. Editing the page to focus on the news story de jour undermines the page. If relevant, serves better elsewhere and lower on page's priority.

Second: The author at IP address 70.180.225.229 seems unfamiliar with this page. Tuition information was already included on the page in a format consistent with other educational institutions (see the infobox at top of page, which plainly includes tuition information).

Third: The February 18 edits all seemed engineered to promote a particular website that criticizes law schools (Law School Transparency). An author at IP address 70.180.225.229 made edits to three law school Wikipedia pages on February 18, 2013; all edits re-published information from the same critical website. All edits made employment statistics a primary page element, inconsistent with the vast array of law school and higher education pages.Crogle94 (talk) 15:25, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Inappropriate information[edit]

The section concerning student loan debt should be removed. The information, which is probably accurate, interesting, and important to some, doesn't belong in a general encyclopaedia. The section's author, perhaps unintentionally, is implying that Vermont Law School is overpriced. It might be overpriced, but that is both an arguable point and an irrelevant one to put before the readers of a general interest encyclopaedia. And, frankly, the figures given don't nearly support the inference that the author seems to want drawn. The section presents a biased opinion. General entries aren't supposed to be polemical--toss it.
