TTTT Smells of Desperation: Texas A&M University to Purchase Fourth Tier Texas Wesleyan University School of Law for $20 Million


Private ABA-Accredited Toilet Sold:

http://www.chron.com/news/article/Texas-A-M-buying-Texas-Wesleyan-law-school-3664030.php

“Texas A&M is buying the law school at private Texas Wesleyan University, a purchase that sets up a public law college in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and fulfills a long-sought goal for officials at one of the nation's largest universities.

The schools jointly announced the deal Tuesday after Texas Wesleyan officials approved the sale Monday night. Texas A&M will pay $20 million and sign a 40-year lease to use the law building at Wesleyan's campus in Fort Worth. Texas A&M regents are expected to approve the purchase on Friday. 

The school will be known as the Texas A&M School of Law at Texas Wesleyan University with a concentration in business and intellectual property law, starting in the 2013-2014 school year.” [Emphasis mine]

Overall Financial Picture for Texas Wesleyan University: 

http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2010/750/800/2010-750800691-06b96ba3-9.pdf

On TTTTexa$ We$leyan Univer$iTTTTy's 2009 Form 990, scroll down to lines 20-22 of page one. You will see that the supposed "non-profit" corporation had $100,242,230 in total assets countered by $33,408,213 in total liabilities. According to this document, on May 31, 2010, the university held $66,834,071 in end of year net assets.

Coverage of the TTTTransacTTTTion:

http://www.star-telegram.com/2012/06/26/4059659/texas-am-announces-plans-to-buy.html

On June 26, 2012, Fort Worth Star-Telegram reporter Diane Smith published the following:

“The end result will be an institution to be called the Texas A&M School of Law at Texas Wesleyan University.

"It's exactly what we have been looking for -- a world-class law school in Fort Worth," said Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp. Texas Wesleyan Law School has 674 students.

Texas Wesleyan President Frederick G. Slabach said the aim is to work together to build a top tier law school in North Texas.”

These pigs cannot be serious in their assessment, i.e. they are merely trying to spin this as a good investment for state taxpayers. Unless, of course, they are genuinely delusional.  While the trash can will have better name recognition, don’t hold your breath in anticipation of the school climbing all the way to the first tier of U.S. law schools. To John Sharp: you purchased a FOURTH TIER LAW SCHOOL! In what universe is that considered a “world-class” law school?!?!

http://insidethelawschoolscam.blogspot.com/2012/06/gone-to-texas.html

On his June 27, 2012 entry entitled “Gone to Texas,” Paul Campos reported on the sale of this fourth tier trash pit to Texas A&M. Take a look at this excerpt:

“What that data show are the following facts for the 223 members of the class of 2011: 

(1) Five graduates got jobs with law firms of more than ten attorneys. 


(2) Nearly 10% of the class listed themselves as solo practitioners. 

(3) The school produced zero federal or state judicial clerks. 

(4) No graduate got a public interest job (including public defender positions). 

(5) Nearly 30% of the class was either unemployed or had an unknown employment status. 

Basically, almost nobody got a job, if a job is defined as "an acceptable employment outcome given the cost of attendance." 

In his concluding remarks, Campos aptly summed up the situation:

“It will be interesting to see if TAMU's administration decides to sink significant resources into trying to patch the Titanic's hull, or whether instead it expends minimal capital on its bargain basement acquisition and simply closes up shop in a few years if and when it discovers that its new cash cow should have been turned into all-beef patties. 


In any case I expect we'll see more of these sorts of deals in the near future, as desperate law schools look for various white knights -- even if most of the latter end up looking a lot more like T. Boone Pickens than Sir Lancelot.” [Emphasis mine]

Prior TTR Entry:

http://thirdtierreality.blogspot.com/2012/05/fourth-tier-rancid-toilet-water-texas.html

I profiled this “institution of higher learning” on May 21, 2012. That entry showed that this school: (a) will charge $30,580 in full-time tuition for the 2012-2013 academic year; (b) is firmly entrenched in the fourth tier of ABA-approved law schools; (c) provides garbage employment prospects for its students and graduates; and (d) that the average law student indebtedness for the Texas Wesleyan JD Class of 2011 was $96,391.

Furthermore, according to US “News” & World Report, 80 percent of this particular cohort took on such debt for a TTTT law degree from this commode. Who wouldn’t want to attend such an “elite” program, with such outcomes?!?!

Conclusion: You’re welcome, Texas Wesleyan University bitches - for the average "sophisticated consumer" doing more research into this economic decision. You have relied on the law school as a cash cow for far too long. The job prospects for Texas Wesleyan JDs are abysmal. While students will continue to get financially raped at this school, at least their diplomas will not have the name “Texas Wesleyan University” written across them. Also, the pigs at that private “non-profit” institution will no longer reap the financial rewards of this racket.

Profiles in Wicked Deceit: Jack Marshall of Ethics Alarms


The Liar Blames the Job Market on Recent “Lazy” Grads:

http://ethicsalarms.com/2011/10/26/the-young-lazy-unimaginative-and-unbelievable-i-wonder-why-would-this-lawyer-have-trouble-finding-a-job/

Back on October 26, 2011, some turd calling itself Jack Marshall posted an entry on its blog, under the label “Young, Gullible, Lazy, Unimaginative and Unbelievable: I Wonder Why This Lawyer Has Trouble Finding A Job?” Here are some excerpts from this trash:

“Do you know what the unemployment rate was for lawyers in 2010, according to the U.S. Department of Labor?

1.5%, and that’s a big increase from 2007, when it was under 1%. What law school is this where 30% or more of the graduates are unemployed? If true, it has to be one spectacularly crummy institution. Again, I am dubious.

But I am especially dubious about anyone with a law degree who isn’t a drooling idiot and yet says he has “no job prospects.” Impossible. A law degree is the most versatile and useful degree there is. It is just as useful for getting management jobs in business and politics as it is in law. It is considered a credential for consulting, negotiation, public speaking, and lobbying. I once was hired to run a health care organization that required a medical degree: they couldn’t find a doctor they liked, so the Chairman of the Board said, “Eh, a law degree’s just as good,” and hired me. No prospects? None? What’s wrong with this guy?” [Emphasis mine]

The cockroach concluded his moronic article with these words:

“And there is one more thing to consider. Nothing, presumably, is stopping a healthy young man who actually learned anything at law school from doing what young lawyers from Abraham Lincoln to Clarence Darrow to my father did and still do: hang out a shingle and start a solo practice, at least until another job materializes. There are indigent defendants that need representation; there are non-profits that need affordable legal work. He could be doing some good for the other “99%,’ and starting to pay of that loan in the process.

“No job prospects”?

Baloney.” [Emphasis mine]

The human waste product known as Jack Marshall fails to recognize that law students today typically incur an additional $80K-$150K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE student debt. That might preclude someone from hanging out their own shingle. Hell, how many banks will even offer a small business loan to such an applicant?!?!

The Pig’s Background:

http://proethics.com/

“ProEthics, Ltd., is a national professional ethics training and consulting firm based in Alexandria, Virginia, just outside Washington D.C. It is led by Jack Marshall, who has diverse training and experience as an ethicist, teacher, professional speaker, lawyer, performer and stage director.

Founded in 1994, ProEthics has gained a national reputation for creating and delivering professional ethics training sessions, seminars, retreats and presentations that lead the field in their creativity, timeliness, energy and effectiveness.”

http://proethics.com/about/

“A graduate of Harvard College, where he specialized in American Government and leadership, and Georgetown University Law Center, he practiced criminal law in Massachusetts and organization law in the District of Columbia, and led non-profit organizations devoted to education, public policy research, and health. He is a member of the Massachusetts bar and the District of Columbia bar.

He served on the adjunct faculty of the Washington College of Law at American University in Washington, D.C., teaching legal ethics from 2006-2008.”

Yes, this piece of garbage is neutral on the subject, correct?!

Prior Published Idiocy from Pig Marshall:

http://www.crimeandfederalism.com/2010/04/jack-marshall-of-proethics-flunked-legal-ethics.html

“Legal ethics are law. One doesn't lose her law license for merely not following guidelines. Anyone who doesn't understand that legal ethics are law can read some judicial opinions. The Rules of Professional Conduct are as much of a part of law as the Rules of the Road: Violate traffic laws, and you'll lose your privilege to drive a car. Violate the Rules of Professional Conduct, and you'll lose your livelihood.

It's obvious, then, that Jack Marshall lacks any understanding of ethics and legal ethics. He cannot comprehend that his opinions on how humans should behave is not the totality of the subject. He does not understand that one's duties as a lawyer are subject to enforceable rules - laws, in every sense of the word. 

Anyone who charges people to attend his lectures on ethics after Marshall's display of ignorance, is unethical. After all, Continuing Legal Education must involve education. Jack Marshall is a de-educator.” [Emphasis mine]

Apparently, Goofy Bald-Headed Ass-Wipe Jack Marshall feels that a lawyer who play an April Fools Day joke is unethical. What a beacon of ethics, huh?!

Conclusion: In the final analysis, Jack Marshall is a ball-less, spineless, brainless waste of sperm and egg. The man has no character and no integrity. He bills himself as a purported “ethics guru.” Always be leery of these types; by nature, they are mere charlatans who seek to avoid real work. However, this physically and ethically grotesque pig takes deceit and dishonesty to another level.

This pathetic moron has chosen to ignore articles critical of the law school cartel and the legal “profession” - which have appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Slate and other mainstream publications. A law degree is not required for the following jobs: insurance adjuster, grade school teacher, sales, customer service representative, bartender, etc. Furthermore, no one with any semblance of sanity can expect a recent lawyer with $100K+ in student debt to give away his services - or to represent indigent clients.

First Tier Bag of Ass: Pepperdine University School of Law


http://law.pepperdine.edu/financial-assistance/cost-of-attendance/

Tuition: As you can see, students attending this school on a full-time basis will be charged $44,290 in tuition, for the 2012-2013 academic year. Yes, these pigs are certainly looking out for the students and graduates.

Total Cost of Attendance: The commode estimates that room, board, fees, books, transportation, medical, and miscellaneous expenses will add another $23,860 to the tab. Of course, the swine explicitly admit that the budget reflects nine months. Then again, why would a “sophisticated consumer” believe that housing in Malibu, California would only amount to $12,000 for the entire year?!

Using twelve month costs for room, board, transportation and personal costs, this figure rises to $30,605. After adding the big-ass tuition bill, we reach a more accurate estimated COA of $75,525 – for 2012-2013. Who wouldn’t want to incur such expenses in the pursuit of a “legal education”?!?!

http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-law-schools/law-rankings/page+2

Ranking: A school with such prohibitive tuition must offer an elite law program, right?!?! Well, according to “Disappointing IQ Not Published” Bob Morse and US “News” & World Report, Pepperdine Univer$ity Sewer of Law is the 49th greatest, most fantastic, euphoric and stupendous law school in the entire United States! If you are a prestige whore/insecure fool, then you may be willing to take out a ton of student loans to attend such a prestigious school – even though a local second tier septic tank offers you a large scholarship. Try not to be a dumbass - and realize that everything boils down to economics. 

http://law.pepperdine.edu/careers/current-students/employment-stats.htm

Wretched Employment Statistics: The school reported that only 72.5% of its Class of 2011 was employed within nine months of graduation. Keep in mind that seven grads were hired in university-funded, short term positions. In fact, the school lists 53 graduates – 23.1 percent of the class – as Unemployed-Seeking.

Also, of the 116 grads who reported working in jobs requiring bar passage, 98 stated that they were in full-time, long term positions. There were 229 graduates in the Pepperdine JD Class of 2011. Of this amount, only 42 percent ended up in such jobs. What a great achievement! The cockroaches even included a new metric: employment within 11 months of graduation!

http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-law-schools/grad-debt-rankings/page+2

Average Law Student Indebtedness: US “News” lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the Pepperdine JD Class of 2011 who incurred debt for law school - as $125,423. This toilet is also in the first tier of student indebtedness! Furthermore, 83 percent of this cohort took on such toxic debt. Remember that this amount does not take undergraduate debt into account. 

http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2010/951/644/2010-951644037-074e558b-9.pdf

Administrator and Faculty Salary Info: Let’s contrast the debt-strapped recent graduates with the well-paid, under-worked dung beetles known as “law professors” at this commode. Head to page 19 of the 2009 Form 990 for Employer ID No. 95-1644037. The figures below pertain to the tax year ending July 31, 2009 – and represent TOTAL COMPENSATION for the individual pigs listed.

You will notice that the piece of trash known as Kenneth Winston Starr – then dean of the law school – raked in $402,144. He is now “president” of Baylor University. Yes, this is the same under-sexed slob who “served” as “special prosecutor” for the Monica Lewinsky affair. Can you guess which school is next on this blog? Thomas Stipanowich made $274,264 as “law professor.” Grant Nelson “earned” $287,216 as “William H. Rehnquist professor of law.” The school named another position after a pathetic mutt. Edward J. Larson received $310,648 in annual loot, for his role at the toilet.

Conclusion: In the final analysis, the school DOES NOT GIVE ONE DAMN about its recent graduates.  What’s that you say, lemming?!  The school hired several members of the Class of 2011 in university-funded positions?!?!  That is called “protecting your institutional image.”  The school is doing this for public consumption, i.e. the pigs want to be able to say “Look!  We are doing something to help our former students.”  If you are this na├»ve, then you are not cut out for the legal/political field.

Again, only 72.5 percent of the commode’s Class of 2011 was employed within nine months of graduation. Furthermore, the school placed several grads in university-funded positions. In contrast, 83 percent of 2011 Pepperdine JDs incurred an average of $125,423 in additional student debt. You will not be served well by taking on a mountain of NON-DISCHARGEABLE loans. Try starting your “career” with $160K-$200K in total student debt. See how many banks will provide you with a small business loan. In addition, no mortgage company will approve you - as your huge liabilities will FAR EXCEED your assets and annual income. With such outrageous debt levels, don’t even think about having children. You simply do not need to go into financial hell - in order to pay these academic leeches/political hacks excessive salaries. Do not attend this trash pit. It may be borderline first tier, but it is clearly a pile of rot.

TTTT Smells of Desperation: University of Dayton School of Law is Now Giving Away First Year Law Books for Free to Those Officially Visit and Enroll


Five Alarm Turd Lingering in the Air:

A blog reader sent me the following link on this commode: 

http://www.udayton.edu/law/admissions/free_books.php

“RECEIVE YOUR FIRST YEAR OF LAW BOOKS FOR FREE

Choosing the right law school is challenging, but affording law school is even tougher. Let us make it easier by buying your first-year books.

Each admitted student who makes an official admitted student campus visit and enrolls for 2012 will receive up to $1,000 for first-year course materials, including law books, law reference texts and law supplements. Books will be available at the law school’s orientation programs.

Choose one of the following visiting options to meet the book scholarship requirement:

· Admitted Student Law Day programs 
· Information Sessions (held most Mondays and Fridays)
· An individual appointment, scheduled with the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid by email or 937-229-3555 

Walk-in visits do not qualify as an official scheduled visit. 

Summer-starters must visit by March 31, fall-starters by June 30.” [Emphasis in original]

Yes, this must be one hell of a prestigious “institution of higher learning,” huh?!?! The schools are now in carnival barker mode.

http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-law-schools/law-rankings/page+8

Ranking: As you can see, US “News” & World Report placed this commode into the fourth tier of American law schools. Bob Morse decided to label this segment as “Rank Not Published.” Their mothers must be very proud of this accomplishment.

http://www.udayton.edu/law/career_services/employment_stats.php

Supposed Employment Placement Rate and Starting Salary Info: According to the trash pit, 86.3 percent of the Class of 2010 found employment within nine months of graduation. Of course, the school does not point out that it includes those not working in the legal field.

Also, the school lists the average starting salary for its Class of 2010 as $56,841. Keep in mind that only 67 out of 120 students reporting that they were employed in positions where bar admission was required or preferred bothered to furnish their income to the school. Only 56 percent of this group provided salary data. Imagine the real average starting salary for the overall cohort, with everyone’s information - including those who are stocking shelves at Target and working in call centers.

http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-law-schools/grad-debt-rankings/page+4

Average Law Student Indebtedness: USN&WR lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the University of Dayton JD 2011 who incurred debt for law school - as $107,458. Furthermore, 91 percent of this school’s 2011 class took on such toxic debt. Remember that this amount does not take undergraduate debt into account.

http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2010/310/536/2010-310536715-073631f6-9.pdf

Faculty and Administrator Pay: Check out the 2010 Form 990 for Employer ID No. 31-0536715, i.e. University of Dayton. On line 20 of page 1, you will notice that this private corporation held $1,091,366,394 in end of year total assets. After calculating $480,631,078 in total end of year liabilities, the “non profit” only had $610,735,316 in end of year NET ASSETS.

Let’s see how well the individual pigs are doing, as opposed to the debt-strapped students. On the last page of this document, you will see that then-dean Lisa A. Kloppenberg raked in $312,103 in TOTAL COMPENSATION for the tax year ending June 30, 2010. Richard Perna, “law professor” at this toilet, made $246,988 in TOTAL COMPENSATION. By the way, he received his JD from Villanova - in 1975. How many recent grads of that commode have the opportunity to become tenured “law professors”?!?!

Conclusion: Call or email these pigs, and let them know that the students are slowly approaching “sophisticated consumer” status – even if the piece of trash called Melvin Schweitzer erroneously believes that all college graduates fall into this category. Again, these swine can be reached at lawinfo@udayton.edu or 937-229-3555. In the final analysis, saving up to $1,000 on casebooks is NOT worth incurring an additional $110-$140K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt.

Tuition will increase at this law school, at some point during your time at this fourth tier dung heap. Hell, the school will likely raise tuition each year. The job market for recent law grads – especially those in the economic dead zone known as Ohio – will not suddenly become better. Again, DO NOT accept this pathetic offer. The school is trying to bait you with free books for the first year. Furthermore, the pigs are AWARE of the fact that there are too many law grads for the available number of attorney positions. Also, the faculty and staff are paid up front, in full – while YOU must repay those loans, with interest. As such, the cockroaches do not give one damn what happens to you upon graduation. They will simply move on to the next group of victims/students.

Profiles in Academic Delusional Psychosis: Harvard “Law Professor” Lawrence Lessig Lectures TTTT Grads on Where to Work


Egghead Exhorts TTTT Grads to Work for “The People”:

http://www.theatlantic.com/national/print/2012/05/a-message-to-law-grads-instead-of-corporations-help-ordinary-people/257945/

On May 31, 2012, Lawrence Lessig published an article for the Atlantic. The post was entitled “A Message to Law Grads: Instead of Corporations, Help Ordinary People.” Apparently, he was so proud of his commencement address to Atlanta's John Marshall Law School’s Class of 2012, he needed to print the talk to a wider audience.

“My point is not to criticize Inc. Law. It helps create wealth; it helps protect wealth. It gives great innovators a chance to bring their innovations to market.

Instead my point is to emphasize the importance of the other part of law. Not the "Inc." part, but the part that touches real people with real problems. It's the part that keeps a family in their home against an unjust demand for eviction. Or enforces a simple contract with a bank, to supply the credit for a coffee shop. Or protects a woman against her abusive husband. Or forces an insurance company to pay on a claim it rightly owes. Or defends a child in a foster home against the neglect of a distracted state.” [Emphasis mine]

Try representing the downtrodden, when you owe - on average - $138,819 in additional NON-DISCHARGEABLE student debt – after graduating from this fourth tier dung pit, Ass-Clown!! When you owe a mortgage that you cannot walk away from, bitch, you cannot afford to help abused housewives with $40.16 in the bank. 

Later on, this cretin continued:

“When you practice this law of real people, when you experience the way the law fails real people, when you see that the only medicine that you have to prescribe -- bloodletting -- helps no one except the vampires, recognize this: 

There is no one who could justify the system we've allowed to evolve. There is no one who could defend its failures.”

I’ll bet that this cockroach can contrive a defense of the indefensible law school scam. But the “professors” should not be held accountable for not teaching their students how to practice law – even after charging them artificially high prices – right?!?!

The Pig’s Backround: 

http://www.law.harvard.edu/faculty/directory/index.html?id=888

“Biographical Statement

Lawrence Lessig is the Roy L. Furman Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, and Director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University. Prior to rejoining the Harvard faculty, Lessig was a professor at Stanford Law School, where he founded the school's Center for Internet and Society, and at the University of Chicago. He clerked for JudgeRichard Posner on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals and Justice Antonin Scalia on the United States Supreme Court.”

After reading this bio, you may be wondering, “Where is Le$$ig’s extensive experience in working in real law, as it affects average people?” After all, the academic hustler lists In$titutional Ethic$ among his “research interests.” Since this data was a little vague, I decided to look up the rodent’s curriculum vitae.

http://www.lessig.org/info/resume/

In fact, this academic leech has precious little legal experience. Lessig graduated from Yale Law School in 1989 – after earning an MA in Philosophy from Trinity College at Cambridge University in 1986 and Bachelor’s degrees in Economics and Management from the University of Pennsylvania in 1983. Scroll down and you will see that this pinhead then clerked for Richard “the Pig” Posner from 1989-1990 before wiping Antonin Scalia’s rotund ass from 1990-1991.

At this point, Lawrence Lessig immediately returned to the womb, i.e. the safe confines of academia. The scaly bastard couldn’t wait to return. As such, he became an “assistant professor of law” at the University of Chicago - in 1991. He has been a columnist, academic “fellow” and “professor” since that time.

Lessig’s “Work for the Little Guy" – Harvard University’s Net Assets Exceed $30 Billion:

http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2010/042/103/2010-042103580-075a7e29-9.pdf

President and Fellows of Harvard College, i.e. Taxpayer ID No. 04-2103580, is a powerful and large corporation. On page 1 of this 2010 Form 990, line 22, you will notice that the school had $30,748,869,000 in end of year net assets – as of June 30, 2010. The “non-profit” held an estimated $47,086,364,000 in total assets, but that figure was countered by $16,337,495,000 in total liabilities. Lawrence, what the hell were you talking about, when you lectured those poor, debt-strapped TTTT students to help ordinary people?!?!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Q25-S7jzgs

If you want to listen to the beady-eyed snake with the bulbous forehead, then click on the link above. In this clip, Douche-bag Lawrence Lessig blathers/pontificates on copyright law's impact on creativity.

Conclusion: In the end, Lawrence Lessig is simply another academic pig who does not appreciate the extent of the damage that his industry has inflicted on legions of young Americans. Then again, he has taught at elite law schools. While HLS students have the choice whether to work in corporate law or family matters, this DOES NOT APPLY to TTTT law schools. Pull your massive head out of your ass for one second, and take a look at the world from the perspective of recent graduates, Lawrence.

Fourth Tier Petrified Rat Droppings: Atlanta's John Marshall Law School



http://www.johnmarshall.edu/images/pdf/2011-2012%20Educational%20Expenses.pdf

Tuition: For the 2011-2012 school year, full-time law students at this dung heap were charged $34,005 in tuition and fees. Part-time students at John Mar$hall Law Sewer only faced $20,469 in tuition and fees, for 2011-2012.

Total Cost of Attendance: This same document lists living expenses. Under the worst-case scenario, i.e. attending this trash pit on a full-time basis, the commode lists the total COA - for 2011-2012 - as $57,410. Keep in mind that these pigs are providing nine-month living costs.

Since actual law students will require twelve-month costs, I will calculate such expenses for room and board; transportation; and miscellaneous. Instead of $10,920, shelter and food will run $14,560. Also, transportation/commuter costs will total $5,600 – and not $4,200. Plus, personal costs will reach $4,533, not the figure that the school published – which was $3,400. Using these figures, we can determine a more accurate total COA of $63,583, for the 2011-2012 academic year. Good luck on your risky “investment”/gamble. You would be better served by putting that sum on black, at the roulette tables in Atlantic City.

http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-law-schools/law-rankings/page+6

Ranking: At such prohibitive prices, surely this school must have one hell of a reputation, huh?!?! Well, according to Cockroach Bob Morse and US “News” & World Report, Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School is firmly established as a fourth tier pile of rancid waste. Of course, Morse trimmed his bush last year and now lists the fourth tier schools as “Rank Not Published.”

http://www.johnmarshall.edu/career/ProspectiveStudents.php

Alleged Employment Figures: According to the cesspool, 91.6 percent of the school’s Class of 2010 was employed within nine months of graduation. Apparently, the school was happy to include JD short order cooks, bartenders, and insurance adjusters in this statistic.

http://www.johnmarshall.edu/career/index.php

The Career Development Office at this garbage heap offers the following “services”: Dress for Success Seminar, Resume Workshops, and Dining Etiquette Seminar. If you are reading this at work, then try not to laugh too hard. If you graduate from this excrement pile, you will likely be subsisting on Ramen noodles, cold cereal, candy bars, and an occasional Whopper or Big Mac. Does this diet require etiquette, other than not puking in public?

http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-law-schools/grad-debt-rankings

Average Law Student Indebtedness: US “News” lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the John Marshall Law Sewer Class of 2011 who incurred debt for law school - as $138,819. Furthermore, 91 percent of this school’s 2011 class took on such toxic debt. Remember that this big-ass figure does not take undergraduate debt into account.

http://www.educationnews.org/career-index/atlanta-s-john-marshall-law-school/

“Professor” Salary Info: The school is a private dung pit, but it is no longer listed as a tax-exempt organization with the IRS. We need to head to a different source, for salary data. As you can see, Education News does not provide individual staff salaries. Also, the date of publication is not given on this document. However, the site does list the average salary of “professors” as $109,363.

“Law School Overview

The law school at Atlanta's John Marshall Law School has an application deadline of August 12. The full-time program application fee at the law school at Atlanta's John Marshall Law School is $50. The part-time program application fee at the law school at Atlanta's John Marshall Law School is $50. Its tuition is full-time: $1,128 per credit and part-time: $1,128 per credit. The student-faculty ratio is 13.9:1. The law school at Atlanta's John Marshall Law School has 53 full- and part-time faculty on staff. Of the 2010 graduates, 34.3 percent were employed at graduation. [Emphasis mine]

What a prestigious in$TTTTiTTTTuTTTTion. The profile also shows that the toilet had a full-time enrollment of 528 students, while 204 poor fools were attending this dung pile on a part-time basis. Notice that the application deadline is right before the first classes commence.

Conclusion: If you believe that attending this school is going to enhance your job prospects, then you are sorely mistaken. Many lemmings foolishly believe that taking on a mountain of student debt for a chance to earn $40K as a lawyer is a wise decision. To the waterheads: if you incur an additional $135K-$170K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt, then you will need to make a financial killing after you graduate from this stink pit. The fact remains that very few TTTT grads will work in Biglaw. Furthermore, with tort reform in place, large jury awards will be reduced. Lastly, billing your toilet as Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School further establishes that you are operating a crass commercial enterprise. It is akin to claiming to serve “Philadelphia’s best cheese steak” or providing “Kansas City’s best barbecue.” The fact that you expect your customers to pay $138,819 for your garbage product shows that the school is run by disgusting, vile pigs who do not give one damn about the students and recent graduates.
