Miserable, Fourth Tier Waste Heap: Mississippi College School of Law
Tuition: Full-time law students at this private toilet were charged $27,780 in tuition - for the 2011-2012 school year. The trash pit does not provide updated costs for the current academic year. However, the pigs claim that tuition rates will remain the same for the three years that one is enrolled.
When you add in fees, the total increases to $30,350. For $ome rea$on, the school estimates that books will be $600 cheaper for spring semester than in autumn. Furthermore, these pigs charge $280 in parking, plus $100 for a snack bar fee. Apparently, parking in Jackson, Mississippi must be at a premium.
Ranking: At such prices, this school must have a stellar reputation, right?!?! According to US “News” & World Report, Mississippi College Sewer of Law is ranked in the putrid fourth tier of American law schools. Of course, Bob Morse now refers to this group as “Rank Not Published.” Their mothers must be very proud.
Employment “Placement” at Graduation: Since these bitches and hags did not have the balls - or integrity - to publish its employment placement data, we need to head to another source for this data. According to the school overview from USN&WR, “Of the 2010 graduates, 43.5 percent were employed at graduation.” What an impressive rate, huh?!?! As if you needed it pointed out to you, this source states that this figure is in the “low“ category.
Average Law Student Indebtedness: US “News” lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the Mississippi College JD Class of 2011 who incurred debt for law school - as $110,169. In fact, 76 percent of this garbage can’s 2011 class took on such filthy debt. Remember that these figures do not include interest that accrues on the outstanding balance, while the student is enrolled.
Administrator and Faculty Salary Info: Let’s see how well the pigs are making out - at the expense of the students, graduates and taxpayers. Scroll down to Part VII - Compensation, of the 2011 Form 990 for Employer ID No. 64-0303086, so that you can access this information.
The following figures represent TOTAL COMPENSATION for the tax year ending June 30, 2011: James Rosenblatt “earned” $212,021, as dean of this toilet; Matthew Steffey raked in $196,578, for teaching civil rights and criminal law; Patricia Bennett, “professor of law” and director of Litigation and Dispute Resolution Center, made $180,480; and Angela Mae Kupenda received $164,403. Who says that “higher education” doesn’t pay off handsomely, for some?!?!
Public Service Emphasis: The description below comes from the school:
“Public Service Law Center
The Public Service Center Law Center exposes students to a wide range of public service opportunities that not only enhance their legal education experience, but also promote a commitment to helping underserved people and communities.
MC Law understands that “success” is measured in more than dollars and cents. One of the center’s goals is to inspire more students to explore careers or volunteer opportunities in public interest law. Whether it’s representing the elderly in filing Social Security claims or finding legal remedies to environmental disasters in the making, public interest law is about attorneys making a positive difference.”
When legal and non-law employers see a bunch of public service projects on your resume, they immediately think “Loser.” From their perspective, if you cannot find paid employment, then why should they extend you an offer? Low-ranked commodes often bill themselves as “public service oriented.” Why would anyone with a brain stem want to incur an additional $115K-130K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt for a chance to help poor people file SSI claims?!?!
Conclusion: Mississippi College Sewer of Law is an overpriced, pathetic dung heap. If you are even considering this garbage pit, ask yourself the following question: if you were an employer, would you hire someone with a TTTT law degree from this in$TTTTiTTTTuTTTTion? In the final analysis, you should not attend this commode - even if the school provides you with a full tuition scholarship. If you are upset with your dead-end job, remember that you will NOT almost certainly be worse off by incurring an additional $120K+ in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt - while pissing away three years of your life.
