Tuition: For the 2010-2011 academic year, a full-time law student at Touro will be charged $40,950 in tuition!! What’s that you say?! Part-time law students will only pay $30,660 in tuition for the same school year? Yes, that must be a big relief to these students.
Ranking: This rotting pile is floating in the fourth tier of American law schools, according to U.S. News & World Report. Now that we have a firm grasp of the obvious, let’s move on to some brutal analysis.
Employment and Starting Salary Statistics: Apparently, the Career Services Office at Touro feels that it would be better not to publish/post employment or starting salary figures of its recent graduates. Or could it be that the school is so modest, that it would be embarrassed to post median starting salaries of $100K and a 98.1% placement rate?!?!
Average Student Indebtedness: Average indebtedness of 2009 TTTTouro graduates who incurred law school debt was $94,680. U.S. News also reports that 92 percent of this commode’s 2009 graduating class incurred law school debt. This is one hell of a price to pay for a useless TTTT law degree.
Upside of a TTTTouro “Education”
Unfortunately, the PI lawyer hack who is interviewing you does not care – in the slightest – about your experience on the Journal of Race, Gender and Ethnicity. Likewise, the insurance defense mill down the block is not concerned with your editorial/management style on the International Law Journal. (In fact, this school is such a festering toilet, it probably doesn’t matter if you are a member of the Touro Law Review.)
At the bottom of this page, you can see that the school offers its law students free parking!! Yes, you read that correctly – free parking. (All they need is a fax machine, and this school may find its way into the third tier – in next year’s law school rankings.) Well, why didn’t you list this on your home page?!?! Can Harvard or Yale offer their students free parking?!
Also, towards the top of the page, you can see that “Letters of recommendation are optional, though encouraged.” Are shirts and shoes required for attendance?
Take a look at this TTTT’s offerings in its Fall 2010 Class Schedule. You can take courses in the following: International Sales Law, International Human Rights, Advanced Legal Research, Global Conflict Resolution, and Rights of Children. Yes, because Touro Commode Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center produces so many “international lawyers,” U.S. ambassadors, globe-trotting diplomats, and other heavyweights in the U.S. State Department, right?!?!
What a great blog, huh?! How can anyone hope to compete with this blog from TTTTouro’s Career Services Office? This may explain why the CSO does not provide employment and starting salary figures.
For some reason, the school is described as a fourth tier bottom feeder.
Look at the comment, posted on 8/24/10 at 6:07 pm. Sounds like a gem of an institution, doesn’t it?!?! I wonder why the school does not include such remarks on its website or marketing materials.
Touro is described as a diploma mill.
People seem to love this commode, don’t they?!
Wherein Touro Law School is described as the “special ed” of law schools, by a commenter.
Conclusion: This in$TTTTiTTTTuTTTTion of “higher learning” is an overpriced diploma mill. A person could easily rack up $130K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE student debt - just for tuition. If you know ANYONE - family member, friend, co-worker, old flame, bus driver, your mortal enemy, the guy who takes your lunch order, et al. - who is considering attending this festering, sweltering dump, do the humane thing and refer them to this entry. You may save someone $180K in student debt - along with a lifetime of debt servitude, anguish, misery, depression, and debilitating stress. Remember, the stench of this place will stick with its graduates for a lifetime.
