Fourth Tier Rot Pile: Roger Williams University School of Law
Tuition: The school charges $1,295 per credit hour. This is a way for the toilet to avoid listing an embarrassingly large number. Perhaps, it hopes to take advantage of mathematically-challenged applicants. Seeing that a year’s course-load is 30 credit hours, a full-time student will pay $38,850 - for one year of tuition. Clearly, you should not pay this amount, for the “opportunity” to attend such an institution. I don’t care if Jessica Alba is teaching “Entertainment Law” in a pink teddy.
Ranking: The school is requiring that you pay $38,850 - in tuition alone - as a full-time student. It must have one hell of a reputation, in the legal and academic communities, right?!?! According to Pussy Bob Morse of US “News” & World Report, the school is a fourth tier piece of garbage. Actually, the cockroach called Robert Morse lost his balls - and now refers to these schools as “rank not published.”
Vagina Bob now has the audacity to claim the following: “U.S. News had been among those urging the ABA to take action to improve the credibility of the important consumer information.”
Yeah, sure you have, opportunistic bitch. Bob, if you are going to be a ball-less shill for Industry, at least do so proudly and without regret. Is your conscious bothering you? Or are you simply trying to score some brownie points with your consumers/future law students?!
Pathetic Employment and Starting Salary Info: According to the commode, 83.44 percent of its Class of 2010 was employed - presumably within nine months of graduation. Yes, with such “stellar” results, who could possibly object to paying $38,850 per year?!?!
Furthermore, the tower of dung known as Roger Williams University Sewer of Law claims that the average starting salary for this class was $51,038, whereas the median starting figure was $47,000. Keep in mind that this data is based on 39 responses - even though the class had 171 graduates, and 123 of them reported being employed! Also note that successful grads are MUCH MORE LIKELY to list their income than those who are making less. This is human nature, I suppose. For instance, how many men would be happy to report that they have a 4” penis, on a random survey?
Average Law Student Indebtedness: Vagisil Bob Morse and USN&WR list the average indebtedness - for 2010 grads of Roger William$ Univer$iTTTTy who incurred law school debt - as $123,338. For those interested in human suffering, 88% of this unfortunate class took on such debilitating debt.
Administrator Pay: On page 36 of Roger Williams University’s 2009 Form 990, we can see how well the swine are doing. Surprisingly, no law faculty are on this list. Then-president Roy Nirschel made $537,201 in TOTAL COMPENSATION - for 2008. Before suddenly resigning in July 2010, Roy made $320,292 in base compensation; $100,000 in bonus & incentive compensation; $1,616 in other compensation; $115,293 in non-taxable benefits - in 2008.
Former Chair Forced to Resign: On July 16, 2007, Inside Higher Ed reported that the commode’s former chairman retired, after the following conduct:
“Roger Williams University announced last week that its board chair of nearly 40 years, Ralph R. Papitto, a major donor for whom the law school is named, was retiring from the board. The press release praised Papitto's "visionary leadership" and said that he considered the diversification of the board as one of his greatest accomplishments.
What the press release doesn't say is that the board today consists only of white men. Nor does it say that the board's two women and one other man were just ousted -- after the three demanded Papitto's resignation for using the slur "nigger" in a board meeting.”
Perhaps this incident is precluding the school from entering the vaunted third tier.
Conclusion: Who in the hell would take out an additional $125K-$170K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt - for a TTTT law degree and the accompanying dismal job prospects?!?! Is this commode accepting mentally deficient students? You will not be served by taking on such debt, and earning $34K-$50K per year. Keep in mind that many grads will find it difficult to find employment, including non-legal positions.
You have one mortal life. Why spend it in bondage to student lenders? In the final analysis, this stench pit exists solely for the benefit of “law professors” and administrators. They are aware that many of the grads will never practice law. Do not toss yourself into the meat grinder. These pigs will be rewarded with nice incomes, without YOU going into life-altering, soul-crushing debt. If you have been accepted to this festering toilet, it is not too late to flush the offer and walk away. Wash your hands of this filth.
