“Eureka College failed the Education Department's financial-responsibility test in the years 2007-09.”
How fitting is it that Moron’s alma mater failed the Department of Education’s financial responsibility test, for several years?
Tuition: For the 2010-2011 school year, a full-time student at the sewer will be charged $33,221.50 in tuition. Part-time students will only be charged $23,065.
Ranking: The school is located in Oklahoma City. That’s the good news. For some reason, US News & World Report has listed this school down as a fourth tier, sweltering dung heap.
Employment Statistics: Since this fourth tier pile of waste did not supply employment placement info, we go to another source. Law School Numbers shows that the 83.9% of the commode’s Class of 2005 was employed within nine months of graduation.
The school does not mention what percentage of its grads ended up serving appetizers at McFinn’s Pub, or how many graduates are checking IDs at the door of The Eight Ball. Furthermore, the sewer of law did not state how many OCU JDs are selling Allstate insurance policies, or installing cabinets and tabletops at Home Depot.
Average Law Student Indebtedness: USN&WR lists the average student debt - for those OCU Law 2009 grads who incurred law school debt – as $102,125. The magazine also notes that 85% of this wretched graduating class took on such debt, to attend this dung pile.
Faculty and Administrator Pay: Head over to page 26 of Oklahoma City University’s 2009 Form 990, to take a look at how well OCU “law professors” are doing. We can see that dean Lawrence Hellman made $250,881 in TOTAL COMPENSATION, for 2008. Yes, Hellman made $213,731 in base compensation, plus $37,150 in nontaxable benefits. But that’s not all!
You see, associate dean for academic affairs Eric Laity “earned” $197,885 in TOTAL COMPENSATION, for the same tax year. Then again, he is a member of the International Fiscal Association and the American Society for International Law. Arthur G. LeFrancois made $186,853 in TOTAL COMPENSATION, while teaching criminal law, criminal procedure and jurisprudence. Lastly, Dennis W. Arrow, “professor of law” and associate director of the Native American Legal Resource Center, made $164,510 in TOTAL COMPENSATION, for 2008. Now, we can see why EVERYONE in the U.S. should seek “higher education.”
But who cares about that, right?! After all, this commode is committed to diversity!!
Here is an apt answer to that age old question: Which law school is better? OCU in Oklahoma City or California Western in San Diego?
“Don't do it! Don't go to law school!!! It sucks, it is expensive, and, unless you like reading material 24/7 that is so indecipherable that you need other books just to help you understand what you are reading (i.e. your textbooks), having only one test determine your entire grade in any given course, and going to school with cocky d*cks, don't go. And most lawyers don't make very much money, contrary to popular belief, unless they work in some big firm in a cubicle (spending upwards of 80 or 90 hours at the office per week). I am telling you, find another profession!!!!!!”
Conclusion: This school is a fourth tier stink pit that overcharges its students. News flash: you do not need to take on an additional $110K-$150K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt, in order to find a damn job. Most students will not benefit from obtaining a law degree from a FOURTH TIER TRASH PIT, such as this one. Legal employers care about a school’s ranking. If you attend a fourth tier dump, you need to land in the top 2-5 students in the class to have a shot at decent legal employment.
If you want, you can send me a check for $10K and I will be happy to kick you square in the gonads. It will not be nearly as painful as being an unemployed, broke-ass lawyer, who lives in his mother‘s garage. Plus this amount represents a mere fraction of the cost of law school, and you will not need to piss away three years of your life.
