    I took night classes in a storefront law college in the Bronx.

    I took night classes in a storefront
    law college in the Bronx.

    This "storefront" would be a down-the-heel college?

    Well, its poverty is not what that expression is stressing, although a storefront law college would no doubt be down at the heels -- and the tuition would be very low (which is probably the point of the passage you are quoting.)

    The implication of "storefront" is low academic standing, poor academic repute, a "start-up" with no academic credentials or distinction. It would not have a campus, or a quad, a library, or dorms, or any of its own buildings really -- just some rented rooms on the street level in the business or shopping area of a city.

    A storefront law school would be not accredited, or barely accredited. Law colleges, chiropractic "colleges," and schools of divinity are the most common ones in this class. Medical colleges of this type were drummed out of the US by the AMA, I believe.

    "Storefront colleges" are on a par with "correspondence course medical degrees" -- at least in the vernacular use of the term.

    But
    Here's a website that says it has statistics to show that some storefront law schools and other unaccredited schools cost less yet perform better than some of the schools with ABA accreditation.

    "Ann" is a woman's name -- I suppose the equivalent of "Ana" or "Anna" -- and the rest of me is in perfect accord with my name.

    What do you mean, "thanks anyway"?

    That is what you say when the offering from the other person is no good!

    If you ask someone to lend you a dollar, but they say that all they have is a dime, you refuse by saying, "Thanks anyway."

    : ( Was my answer a dime when you had hoped for a dollar?
