Tuition: Connecticut residents attending this trash pit on a full-time basis will be charged $23,324 in tuition and fees – for the 2012-2013 school year. Those full-time students designated as Compact/NE Region are going to face tuition and fee costs of $40,100, for the upcoming academic year. Out of state, full-time law students at Uconn will be slapped with a big-ass bill of $48,092 – for 2012-2013. At such prices, who wouldn’t want to attend this public, “non-profit” in$TTiTTuTTion?!?! By the way, costs for those in the Evening Division are not much better.
Total Cost of Attendance: If you have a weak heart, I advise you to skip over this section. The toilet admits that the following full-time student estimates are nine month figures: in state, $40,140; in-state but living with parents, $30,606; regional, $56,916; and out-of-state, $64,908.
Seeing that actual law students will require 12 month living expenses, I will prorate the figures for the following areas: room, board, miscellaneous, and transportation costs. Doing so, we reach the following, more accurate estimated COAs: Connecticut residents, $45,309; in-state but living at home, $32,597; regional, $62,085; and out-of-state, $70,077. Now, imagine how much annual income you would need to earn, in order to make a positive return on your investment.
Ranking: Based on the above-listed prohibitive cost of attendance, this must be an excellent school, right?!?! According to US “News” & World Report, the University of Connecticut Sewer of Law is the 62nd greatest, most magnificent and amazing law school in the United States. It shares this distinct honor with Chicago-Kent and the University of Kentucky. That is one hell of an achievement!
Employment and Starting Salary Statistics: Let’s take a look at this PDF, entitled “University of Connecticut School of Law Graduate Report - Class of 2011.” The commode notes that 166 out of 179 graduates responded to this survey. Basically, only 92.73% of this class bothered to report their employment status.
With this background, the second tier turd claims that its employment “placement” rate - for the Class of 2011 - was 83.1 percent. Furthermore, 2.4% of these graduates pursued to earn another academic degree - due to not being able to find a decent position. In the past, most ABA sewers would include these JDs under the category “Employed or enrolled in an advanced degree program.” Lastly, the toilet states that 6 percent of 2011 grads not seeking employment. This represents roughly 32.25 percent of unemployed members of this TT cohort.
On page 2 of this file, you will find the Salary Report for the Class of 2011. Based on those who bothered to report their income to the ABA trash heap, the overall median starting salary stood at $65,000. The published average starting salary was $78,578. By the way, only 92 out of 138 furnished this salary data to the school. This is two-thirds of employed grads. Perhaps the other 46 JDs were too embarrassed to provide their huge salary to their pre$TTigiou$ alma mater, right?!?! Hell, the overall class size consisted of 179 graduates.
Average Law Student Indebtedness: The bitches and hags at USN&WR list the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the Univer$iTTy of ConnecTTicuTT JD Class of 2011 who incurred debt for law school - as $65,639. Fully 85% of this cesspool’s 2011 class took on such toxic debt. Remember that these figures do not include interest that accrues on the outstanding balance, while the student is enrolled. Plus, seeing that the school charges exorbitant levels of tuition, this average debt figure seems artificially low.
Pathetic Law Journals: As a student at this second tier law school, you will the unique opportunity to write onto the world-famous Connecticut Public Interest Law Journal! If you become a student editor, keep that info to yourself - unless you want beautiful, strange women to climb on top of you. Take a look at this descripTTion:
“The Connecticut Public Interest Law Journal is a student-run scholarly journal that publishes works by professors, judges, practitioners, and students. The Journal's publications are subjected to a rigorous editorial board process designed to strengthen their substance, tone and accuracy.
The Journal's primary purpose is to further the discussion of legal aspects of public interest issues and especially those confronting underrepresented individuals. The Journal is a forum for such intellectual discussion and is a force for change and progress.”
“The Connecticut Insurance Law Journal is the world’s only academic law review dedicated exclusively to the publication of original research on the law relating to insurance, risk and responsibility. Since its founding in 1994, the Journal has succeeded in attracting articles that are theoretically sophisticated and of practical importance.”
At least, you can point out that you are on the top insurance law journal in the nation - if you are allowed in the journal. What employer wouldn’t be extremely impressed by this “experience”?!?!
Conclusion: Don't be a moron. Avoid this sewage pit - unless you are receiving a full-tuition scholarship. Ask yourself how well you will be served by incurring an additional $70K-$110K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt for a law degree, from this dung pit. Do you think that any bank will extend a mortgage or small business loan to your heavily-indebted ass?!?! If you are not in the top ten percent of your class, after first semester, then drop out immediately. In the end, law school is a financial decision. This will impact your future, for decades.
