Overpriced Public First Tier Rot Pile: The Ohio State University Michael E. Moritz College of Law
Insisting on using “the” to preface the name of your university is first tier douche-bag behavior. Charging an arm and a leg to attend your public sewer is criminal.
Tuition: For in-state law students attending Ohio State University, on a full-time basis, tuition will amount to $26,328 – for the 2011-2012 school year. Non-resident, full-time law students will be charged $41,278 in tuition, for the same academic year.
Total Cost of Attendance: The commode estimates that living expenses will add up to $17,808 – for 2011-2012. With health insurance plus books and supplies adding another $5,426 to the tab, the school estimates that the total COA for Ohio residents will be $48,116 – for the 2011-2012 school year. For non-residents, this figure is $63,066.
As with other dishonest ABA-accredited law schools, Ohio State does not calculate twelve month living expenses. After all, doing so would increase the estimated COA. In fact, the deceptive pigs at Ohio $tate Univer$ity Moritz Commode of Law conveniently forgot to add the comprehensive health insurance figure of $1,546 – when reaching the figures above. (If you prefer, you can presume that the bastards simply do not know how to add.)
Taking insurance and twelve month costs into account, total COA for non-resident law students reaches $70,548!! For Ohio residents, this figure is a mere $55,598 – for the current calendar year. Who says that “higher education” doesn’t pay off?!?!
Ranking: According to the ass-clowns at US “News” & World Report, The Ohio State University Moritz Commode of Law is the 35th most remarkable and phenomenal law school, in the land. It shares this “prize,” with Alabama, Georgia and Wisconsin.
Supposed Employment and Starting Salary Figures: The toilet claims that all 202 graduates – from the Class of 2010 – supplied their employment status to the school. If you add up the columns, 99.01% of this class was employed in some capacity. If this is the case, then why not proudly publish “99 percent of the Class of 2010 was employed”?!?!
The school notes the following: “Salary information was reported by 43.56% of the 2010 graduates.” The toilet continues: “Median salaries for law firms ranged from $51,000 for firms between 2-10 attorneys (24 graduates reporting) to $160,000 for firms with over 500 (14 graduates reporting).”
Under 2010 Employment by Category, the school notes that 84 graduates were in private practice, i.e. 41.9 percent. Of this figure, only 14 reported their income, as lawyers in firms with more than 500 attorneys?!?! This represents 1/6 of those reportedly working in private practice. By the way, these respondents are MOST likely to provide their income info, to the school – as they are proud of their salary.
Average Law Student Indebtedness: How much NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt can you look forward to taking out, as a graduate of this public law school? USN&WR reports the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the Ohio State Law Class of 2010 who incurred debt for law school - as $84,408. Fully 90 percent of this second tier sewer’s 2010 class took on such miserable debt. Remember, this total does not include debt from undergrad.
OHIO STATE LAW GRAD OWES TOO MUCH IN STUDENT LOANS TO SIT FOR THE OHIO BAR
On January 12, 2011, Elie Mystal wrote about the Ohio Bar applicant who failed to pass character & fitness, due to the fact that he owes $170K in student debt:
“What a mindjob. The Ohio bar is blaming this guy because his debts are non-dischargeable? That’s not Griffin’s fault. The Ohio bar is blaming him because he doesn’t have a plan? Please show me the 2007 graduate of Moritz College of Law who had a really solid plan for paying off $170K of debt. Denying Griffin admission, for a situation that is literally affecting thousands of people, is totally arbitrary and capricious.”
“Professor” and Administrator Salaries: Let’s see how well the gluttonous pigs are making out – on the federal student loan teat – in comparison. Alan Charles Michaels made $302,006, as dean of the commode of law - in 2010. The following figures are for 2010:
Nancy Hardin Rogers, “Michael E. Moritz Chair in Alternative Dispute Resolution,” “earned” $268,416; Joshua Dressler, “Frank R. Strong Chair in Law,” raked in $260,390; Deborah Jones Merritt, “John Deaver Drinko-Baker & Hostetler Chair in Law” made $241,060; and Dale Arthur Oesterle, “J. Gilbert Reese Chair in Contract Law,”rolled around in $239,563.
By the way, fully 20 faculty members at Ohio State University Moritz Commode of Law made more than $170K, in 2010. Aren’t you glad that your tax dollars can go to such a “noble” cause?!?! By the way, the university pays its “president,” Elwood Gordon Gee, a salary of $802,125. This figure does not count bonuses, benefits or incentives. If you count total compensation, the swine made $1.32 million, for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2010. Nice big red bowtie, you overpaid, underworked pencil-neck tool.
Conclusion: The Ohio State University Michael E. Moritz College of Law is an overpriced, festering, foul, rank public piece of trash. You simply do not need to incur an additional $85K-$130K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt for a chance to work for legal aid. If you want to help people, then you can volunteer at a soup kitchen. You do not need to personally contribute to the bloated salaries of the pigs - and ruin your financial well-being, in the process.
