Loose Bowel Syndrome: Liberty University School of Law
Tuition: Students attending this rat-hole on a full-time basis will be charged $33,396 in tuition – for the 2012-2013 school year. When you click on the hyperlink above, you will notice that fees/basic costs add up to another $2,007. In sum, the total cost is $35,403. Note that the technology fee is $642. Hell, are they giving every enrolled victim a fancy laptop?!?!
Total Cost of Attendance: Under “Variable Costs” on the same document, the pigs estimate that living expenses will amount to $16,800. Apparently, the bastards decided to use round numbers. After all, “law professors” love to joke about how “Lawyers are terrible at math.”
Keep in mind that ABA-accredited commodes base living costs on a nine month basis. Seeing that a calendar year is comprised of 12 months, I will provide a more accurate picture of these expenses. Prorating housing, personal costs and travel, this amount increases by $5,000. As such, a first year, full-time student can look forward to a total, estimated COA of $57,203 – for 2012-2013.
Ranking: Based on these big-ass costs, one would expect this school to have a sterling reputation in the legal and academic communities. Well, according to US “News” & World Report, LiberTTTTy Univer$iTTTTy Sewer of Law is ranked in the sordid fourth tier of American law schools. Of course, Pussy Bob Morse now lists the grouping as “Rank Not Published.” Yes, that is one prestigious institution, right?!?!
Embarrassing Employment Placement Rate: The toilet states that 66.3% of its 2011 graduates were employed, within nine months of graduation. Another 28.9 percent of the class was seeking a job, while 4.8% of this cohort was not looking for work. By the way, the school states that were 55 employed graduates – out of 90 JDs. If this is the case, then the “placement” rate – for the LiberTTTTy JD Class of 2011 - is only 61.1 percent. That is quite an accomplishment, huh?!?!
Under the subheading “Employment Type by Industry/Sector,” you will notice that only 50.9 percent of employed grads were reportedly working in law firms. Hell, 18.9% of this cohort was employed in business/industry. Keep in mind that tending bar and selling insurance would fall under this category. Are you still interested in applying to such a cesspool?!
Average Law Student Indebtedness: USN&WR lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the LiberTTTTy Univer$iTTTTy JD Class of 2011 who incurred debt for law school - as $66,088. According to this source, fully 94 percent of this dung heap’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.
Administrator Pay: In order to see how well the pigs and rats are doing, we head to the 2011 Form 990 for Liberty University Inc., i.e. Employer ID No. 54-0946734. Scroll down to page 17 of this PDF, Part VII – Compensation. No member of the law school faculty is listed among the highest paid employees. However, you will see that Jerry Falwell, Jr. received $409,960 in TOTAL COMPENSATION, for the tax year ending June 30, 2011. As “chancellor” and legal counsel, the dog raked in $371,521 in reportable compensation, plus $38,439 in estimated amount of other compensation from the organization and related organizations.
Further down the same page, Opie Taylor doppelganger Jonathan Falwell – a trustee – “earned” $118,918 in TOTAL COMPENSATION, for the same tax year. No other Liberty “University” trustee earned a dime. That MUST be a mere coincidence, right?!?! Apparently, the swine prefer to keep the money in the family.
Founding Cockroach Jerry Lamon Falwell:
“In 1967, Falwell implemented his vision to build a Christian educational system for evangelical youth. He began with the establishment of Lynchburg Christian Academy, an accredited Christian day school for grades K-12 . In 1971, he founded Liberty University, an accredited Christian university for evangelical believers. In 1985 Falwell announced his goal of 50,000 students.”
This is the same “man” who blamed the September 11th attacks on gays and feminists, in this country. Since evangelical churches are a big fraud and a blemish, it makes sense that this bigot opened a “non-profit university.” Hell, his fellow Chri$tian charlatan, Gordon Marion “Pat” Robertson, did the same with Regent University. That garbage heap is also located in Virginia.
Conclusion: Do not attend this supposedly “Christian” law school – at any cost. The commode was founded in 2004. Additionally, it did not gain full ABA accreditation until 2010. The trash pit is consistently ranked in the fourth tier of U.S. law schools. Look at the employment “placement” figures above, which were reported by Liberty University Sewer of Law. Most legal and non-legal employers are not impressed with a degree from this place. While the law student debt figure may not seem monstrous – in relation to other schools – try paying off $70K-$90K in additional, NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt, on a measly income. Good luck starting a family or buying a home, with those debt chains around your neck. Anyone with a brain stem would not view this as financial “liberty.”
