I get why the old guy went to Ave Maria since it seems like law for him is a long term interest and perhaps a bit of a hobby, but for the young woman, I'm afraid she likely wasted her time and money.
Ave Maria is among the worst law schools in the US and isn't likely to climb in the ranking anytime soon. US News has it squarely in the 4th tier (its lowest) and doesn't even rank it numerically. It is well known that there are far more law graduates than the market can absorb so most of the Ave Maria graduates will either become sole practitioners in small towns or will end up working in non-legal fields. These graduates are unlikely to be selected for prestigious judicial clerkships or top firm summer associate position. It is hard enough for graduates of top law schools to find good jobs. For these graduates, it will be near impossible.
The worst part is that many if not most of these graduates will have great difficulty paying back the loans they took out to attend.
Large firms, even in Florida are very unlikely to hire one of these graduates in the near future. After it becomes a bit more established, that may change, but it will take decades for that to happen.
Really, the world didn't need another law school.
