Tuition: A full-time student at this law school will be charged $30,320 in tuition, for the 2010-2011 school year. Student fees add up to another $174.
Overall Cost of Attendance: The commode estimates that room & board for a student living on-campus will come up to $9,118; for those living off-campus, this figure is listed as $12,642. Books will add another $1,500 to the tab. Without taking insurance, transportation or parking into account, a full-time student - who lives off campus - at this dump is looking at $44,636 in expenses.
Ranking: So the school is located in the cosmopolitan metropolis of Tulsa, OK. Plus, annual tuition eclipses $30K. Surely, this “institution of higher learning” can justify the cost, right?!?! Well, not exactly. You see, US News & World Report lists this school as a member of the third tier cesspool, with other solid denizens such as Willamette University, University of Toledo and the University of Baltimore.
“The University of Tulsa has the 123rd best law school in the nation, which might not sound like much, but it's a damned sight better than being No. 147, and legitimate reason for celebration on 11th Street.”
To get an idea of how filthy this commode is, take a look at this article. The reporter is thrilled that the school is now the 123rd best law school in the land. Guess what, Wayne?! The school is still a third tier, fourth-rate piece of garbage! Does that temper your exuberance?!
Supposed Employment Placement Rate: The school claims the following: “TU Law's 2009 graduate placement rate of 95.7 percent is a remarkable achievement during a year when the legal profession is particularly hard hit by the economic pressures of the recession.”
Yeah - and Lauren Graham just reported experiencing uncontrollable, multiple orgasms 95.7% of the time that she is with me.
Average Student Indebtedness: US News lists the average student indebtedness - for those members of the Tulsa Law Class of 2009 who incurred law school debt - as $68,642. Fully 70% of this particular, unfortunate class took on such debt.
Administrator Pay: Head over to page 19 of the University of Tulsa’s 2009 IRS Form 990. There, you will see that dean Janet Levit made $201,320 in TOTAL COMPENSATION, for 2008. To gain a better insight into the overal higher education scam, go to page 18 take a look at how well university "president" Steadman Upham did that year: this pig made $588,051 in base compensation plus $1,034,178 in "estimated amount of other compensation from the organization and related organizations. Yes, this "educator" made $1,622,229 in TOTAL COMPENSATION - in 2008 - as the "president" of this third tier university.
Look! As a student at this third tier sewage pit, you have the opportunity to write onto the Energy Law Journal and ABA Year in Review!! Yes, you will be the life of the party -from *the moment* you enter the room. Too bad, this valuable experience will not help you land a job.
So many options! You can earn a Public Policy certificate, or a JD/M.A. in Anthropology. Hell, you can even get an M.A. in English, to go with your law degree. Make sure to ask for a side of fries with that. It doesn’t end there; you can also walk away from this moist turd with an M.A. in Industrial Organizational Psychology. (Maybe, you can determine why lemmings insist on attending law school.)
Check this out. Law School Numbers shows that the job placement rate for the Class of 2005, was only 78.5%. Yet, the school now claims an employment rate of 95.7 percent. $omehow, Tulsa was able to increase its nine-month figures by 17.2% while the economy went to hell. Can you say “creative accounting”?!
Furthermore, we can see that the 75th percentile of entering Tulsa students scored a 154 on the LSAT. Those in the 25th percentile had a score of 150. Those in the 75th percentile had a UGPA of 3.53, whereas those in the 25th percentile earned a 2.93 GPA during undergrad. If you have similar numbers, then you may end up at a third tier commode such as this one.
Conclusion: This school is an over-priced filth pit that tosses many of its graduates into the waste bin of society. You will not be well-served to take on $75K-$110K in additional NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt for a law degree from this stench pile.
In the final analysis, this school is a sad joke. No one gives a damn if this school floated from the fourth tier to the third tier. (Is it a huge accomplishment when a nugget of human waste floats to the surface, after being flushed?!) It is still a decrepit piece of garbage.
