I have to admire Martin Schreiber II for speaking out against the $410,000 payment to Karen Rothenberg, the former dean of the University of Maryland School of Law ("UM dean profited while students paid higher tuition," Readers respond, Feb. 23). Our grandson will graduate from the University of Richmond this spring and intends to attend law school. It is because of these outrageous payments to Ms. Rothenberg and others like her that students (as well as their parents) will be strapped for life paying off their student loans.
