Tuition: For the 2012-2013 academic year, full-time law students will be charged $36,882 in tuition. The school also charges a general fee of $1,640, plus $84 in SBA dues. Combined, these figures amount to $38,606. At these prices, who wouldn’t want to attend such an elite in$TTTTTiTTTTTuTTTTTion?!?!
In case these costs were not outrageous enough, notice the following info:
“A one-time matriculation fee of $77.00 is assessed at the beginning of the student’s first semester.”
Ranking: Based on the cost of attendance, this school must have a solid reputation, right?!?! As you can see, Pussy Bob Morse at US “News” & World Report listed Charlotte Sewer of Law as a fourth tier waste heap. Of course, those rats now refer to this group as Rank Not Published.
Supposed Employment Placement Figures: The commode claims that 82.47 percent of its Class of 2011 was employed within nine months of graduation. If you are considering this dung pit - or are set to enroll here - then check out this admission:
“In accordance with NALP guidelines, the number of employed graduates includes all employment positions, including legal and non-legal positions, permanent and temporary positions, full-time and part-time positions, and any positions funded by Charlotte School of Law.” [Emphasis mine]
Members of this cohort who ended up selling insurance or making lattes are counted as “employed.” What a nice cartel, huh?
Average Law Student Indebtedness: USN&WR lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the Charlotte School of Law Class of 2011 who incurred debt for law school - as $100,417. Furthermore, 89% of this trash can’s 2011 class took on such toxic debt. Keep in mind that these figures do not include interest that accrues on the outstanding balance, while the student is enrolled. Also, this sum does not take undergraduate debt into account.
This Commode is Operated by Infilaw Corp.:
“The InfiLaw System is a consortium of independent, community based law schools that is establishing itself as a leader in making legal education more responsive to the realities of new careers dynamics.
The InfiLaw System includes Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville, FL, Phoenix School of Law in Phoenix, AZ and Charlotte School of Law in Charlotte, NC.”
Infilaw is Owned by Sterling Parters, a Private Equity Firm:
On August 4, 2012, the Oregonian published a piece from Jeff Manning, under the headline “Law schools revenues soar as they take in millions from tuition and fees, as supply exceeds demand.” Check out this excerpt:
“That flood tide of federal money has attracted some unusual players. Consider the case of Phoenix School of Law, Florida Coastal School of Law and the Charlotte School of Law. The government loaned more than $150 million in 2011 to the students of the three stand-alone law schools, according to the U.S. Department of Education. Phoenix students finished with a median debt of $153,489.
The three schools are owned by Sterling Partners, a Chicago private equity firm. They are among a new breed of for-profit law schools to emerge in recent years. Once the American Bar Association accredited the schools, their students became eligible for federal loans.
"Sterling is making a ton of money courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer when no bank would lend a dime to these students," said Paul Campos, a University of Colorado Law School professor.” [Emphasis mine]
Full Accreditation Granted in June 2011:
This garbage pit received provisional ABA approval in 2008, and then full accreditation on June 10, 2011. Keep in mind that the pigs and cockroaches at the American Bar Association have lower standards than a street hooker. Yes, what a prestigious “academy,” right?!?!
TTTT Mission Statement:
“ABOUT CHARLOTTE LAW
Our Mission Pillars
- Practical preparation is critical.
- Our students are our focus.
- It is essential to serve our community."
Conclusion: This “school” is an absolute laughingstock. It happens to be a mere subsidiary of $terling Partner$. Do you think - for one second - that these venture capitalist cockroaches give one damn about you or your future?!?! If you are enrolled at this commode, then drop out immediately. The fact remains that decent firms and agencies will not hire those with degrees from CharloTTTTe $chool of Law.
