Hideous Anal Cyst and Hemorrhoid Jack Marshall is in Dire Need of a Brain and Genital Transplant

Dumbass Posts an Ignorant Entry About the Legal Job Market, Blaming the Students:

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

Jack Marshall is such a piece of garbage that one of my adversaries e-mailed me, and told me to nail this bastard. Apparently, a miserable trash pile can sometimes unite others.

My Response to the Chirping Cockroach:

http://thirdtierreality.blogspot.com/2012/06/profiles-in-wicked-deceit-jack-marshall.html

On June 24, 2012, I flushed a humongous turd – by the name of Jack Marshall – down the commode. That entry was entitled “Profiles in Wicked Deceit: Jack Marshall of Ethics Alarm.”

Dogface Reacts in Typical Bitch Mode on October 15th:

http://ethicsalarms.com/2012/10/15/unethical-website-of-the-month-third-tier-reality/

“That’s not all. In addition to routinely referring to others, especially law deans and professors, as “cockroaches,” “pigs,” “dogs” and even more denigrating terms ( I, for example, am “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.” So unfair. I have never billed myself as an “ethics guru”!), Nando decorates his site with graphic photographs of various forms of fecal matter, including a particularly nauseating shot of the aftermath of explosive diarrhea.”

At least, the foul swine is aware that others know that he is a eunuch. Jack CLEARLY doesn’t know what the hell he is talking about. Thousands of recent JDs are unable to land legal jobs, despite their best efforts. Not only is Jack Marshall ball-less and spineless, but the pile of buffalo dung is mentally deficient, as well. When you add those “qualities” to his ugly appearance, you can see why he had to create his own job. Pictures of explosive diarrhea are less nauseating than this man’s visage. That may be a little below the belt, but you don’t have any genitals anyway, Jackass.

Some Basic Facts for the Fat Pig to Consume:

http://www.nalp.org/uploads/NatlSummChart_Classof2011.pdf

Here is the NALP Class of 2011 National Summary Chart. As you can see, ABA-accredited toilets collectively pumped out 44,495 graduates. However, this gigantic cohort competed for a mere 27,224 jobs where bar passage was required. Keep in mind that not all of the jobs in this category are traditional attorney positions. Scroll down to page two of this PDF. You will note that 13.1% of all jobs were listed as short-term, while 11.8 percent were part-time. Fact: law schools produced FAR TOO MANY grads for the available number of lawyer openings for this specific year.

On June 13, 2010, Brian Tamanaha – now a tenured professor at Washington University - published a Balkinization blog piece labeled “Wake Up, Fellow Law Professors, to the Casualties of Our Enterprise.” Here is one concise description of the situation:

http://balkin.blogspot.com/2010/06/wake-up-fellow-law-professors-to.html

“[F]or the opportunity to enter a saturated legal market with long odds against them, the tens of thousands newly minted lawyers who graduate each year from non-elite schools will have paid around $150,000 in tuition and living expenses, and given up three years of income. Many leave law school with well over $100,000 in non-dischargeable debt, obligated to pay $1,000 a month for thirty years.

This dismal situation was not created by the current recession—which merely spread the pain up the chain into the lower reaches of elite schools. This has been going on for years.” [Emphasis mine]

http://www.americanbar.org/content/dam/aba/administrative/legal_education_and_admissions_to_the_bar/stats_1.authcheckdam.pdf

Take a look at the ABA document “Enrollment and Degrees Awarded, 1963-2010.” From 1980-1981 to 2009-2010 – a span of 30 years – ABA-approved law schools awarded 1,161,863 JDs. Fact: ABA-accredited trash pits have pumped out FAR TOO MANY grads for generations.

http://www.bls.gov/ooh/Legal/Lawyers.htm

The U.S. Bureau of Labor prognisticates that there will only be 73,600 more lawyers in 2020 than there were in 2010.  Prior to this update, the Bureau predicted that there would be 98,500 more employed lawyers in 2018 than in 2008.  Automation and outsourcing, combined with wiser Biglaw clients, are having a huge impact on this "profession." Fact: There is no need for legions of newly-minted U.S. lawyers each year.  The schools are aware of this situation, but they would rather keep the gravy train rolling along - rather than turn down those federally-backed, NON-DISCHARGEABLE student loan dollars.

Former Biglaw associate Will Meyerhofer posted an article entitled “Extremely Versatile Crockery,” on his blog back on November 3, 2010. Read the excerpt below:

http://thepeoplestherapist.com/2010/11/03/extremely-versatile-crockery/

"For the record, a law degree is not “versatile.” Being a lawyer amounts to a strike against you if you ever decide to pursue another career.

So why do people keep insisting it’s an “extremely versatile degree”?

A bunch of reasons.

Law schools are in it for the money. Teaching law doesn’t cost much, but they charge a fortune – made possible by not-dischargable-in-bankruptcy loans. That makes each law school a massive cash cow for the rest of the university. Money flowing from the law school pays the heating bill for the not-so-profitable Department of Neo-Structuralist Linguistics. [Emphasis mine]

Should you take the word of a man who has worked in Biglaw and is now in a different professional career, or go with a fraud and liar who runs a website devoted to “ethics”?!?! Fact: a law degree is not highly versatile, and non-legal employers view JD applicants suspiciously.

Conclusion: In the final analysis, Jack Marshall of Ethics Alarms has no balls, brains or backbone. He shills for the law school industry, without even bothering to learn the facts. Instead, Marshall relies on straw men “arguments.” Then again, the ugly rat realizes that the truth runs contrary to his position. As such, the cockroach has no integrity or moral standing. Hell, farm animals have more dignity than the piece of trash known as Jack Marshall.

If you truly want to provide the neighborhood children with a traumatic experience this Halloween, then make sure to grab an Uncle Fester/Jack Marshall facemask – and prowl the streets. Don’t be surprised, however, if women start beating you with their fists or with rocks. A mother’s instinct kicks in when you see such a horrific image approaching one’s children.

Former Thomas Jefferson School of Law Official Admits to Falsifying Employment Placement Statistics


The Admission:

http://www.lawschooltransparency.com/2012/10/ex-cso-assistant-director-from-tjls-admits-to-fraud/

On October 23, 2012 at 10:00 am, Law School Transparency published a story labeled “Breaking: Ex-CSO assistant director from Thomas Jefferson admits to fraud, alleges deliberate scheme by law school.” Check out this excerpt:

“In a sworn statement, Karen Grant, a former career services assistant director at Thomas Jefferson School of Law, admits that she fabricated graduate employment outcomes for the class of 2006. Grant alleges that her fraud was part of a deliberate scheme by the law school’s administration to inflate its employment statistics. She also claims that her direct supervisor, Laura Weseley, former Director of Career Services, instructed her on multiple occasions to improperly record graduate employment outcomes and justified the scheme because “everybody does it” thus “it is no big deal.” TJSL could face sanctions from the American Bar Association as severe as losing accreditation.” [Emphasis mine]

How is that for meat and potatoes? Now you see why industry bagmen/pieces of trash Melvin Schweitzer and Gordon Jay Quist did not want the class action lawsuits against NYL$ and Thomas M. Cooley Law Sewer to go to a jury. They did not want any potentially damaging info to be accessed, if discovery were allowed.

Later on, the piece continued:

“It is the nature of the process that schools do not follow up with certain graduates before submitting data to NALP by the end of February. Schools begin collecting post-graduation job outcome data shortly before graduation and continue through the February 15 reporting deadline. Once a school knows that a graduate has a job, career services staffers will often cease follow-ups because they believe their time is better spent elsewhere. 

However, Grant alleges that the accepted practice in the TJSL career services office, at least during her tenure, went beyond cherry picking which students to follow up with. She alleges that she participated in a scheme that guaranteed that TJSL’s employment stats would be better than the reality by affirmatively ignoring new, true, and proper outcomes of graduates whose jobs were terminated or ran their course before the reporting deadline. Grant admits that TJSL submitted false information to NALP, U.S. News, and the American Bar Association as a result of her counting as employed at nine-months any student who was employed at any time after graduation regardless of whether they had a job at that time.

A look at the statistics TJSL reported to the ABA for the class of 2006 confirms that the numbers from Grant’s spreadsheet, Exhibit D of her declaration, were submitted to the ABA. These numbers were not submitted to the ABA until after her termination in September 2007.[Emphasis mine]

The Smoking Gun:

http://www.scribd.com/doc/110912164/Alaburda-v-TJSL-Declaration-of-Karen-Grant

Take a look at the handwritten notes on Exhibit B, attached to Karen W. Grant’s Declaration. On the second page of this file, she attests that the meeting took place on October 16, 2006. As you can see from the document, Grant was to update the Employment Report & Salary Survey with those who were unemployed before February and found employment before the NALP deadline, but not vice versa.

This commode is a bastion of integrity, huh?!?! For $ome rea$on, the academic thieves were not concerned with temporarily employed JDs who ended up jobless at the nine month mark.

Coverage from Others: 

http://insidethelawschoolscam.blogspot.com/2012/10/former-assistant-career-services.html

Later on October 23, 2012, Paul Campos posted an epic entry entitled “Former assistant career services director admits to falsifying employment data, claims she was ordered to do so.” Here is the opening:

“A former assistant career services director at Thomas Jefferson School of Law has admitted in a sworn statement to fabricating graduate employment data, and claims she was ordered to do so by her boss, the director of the of the office.”

http://abovethelaw.com/2012/10/former-thomas-jefferson-school-of-law-employee-alleges-falsification-of-employment-statistics/

Also on the same day, Staci Zaretsky published a piece for ATL under the headline “Former Thomas Jefferson School of Law Employee Alleges Falsification of Employment Statistics.” From her conclusion:

[A]s we hear about more and more misconduct, alleged or admitted, at law schools around the country — from TJSL to Villanova to Illinois — it gets harder and harder to dismiss each as a “one bad apple” situation. And it’s rather unfortunate that the ABA seems unable or unwilling to recognize this. Perhaps the organization ought to do something more than watch from the sidelines and then punish a law school when its misdeeds come to light. Perhaps it’s time for the ABA to do something that should’ve been done a long time ago: require that all employment data be independently verified by a third party.” [Emphasis mine]

Hell, I'm surprised the pigs at TJ$L did not claim that this was an "error."

Conclusion: The sources above share one common thinking error: they believe that the ABA will or should do something to stem this conduct. With their track record, nothing indicates that the American Bar Association cockroaches will intervene. If they do get involved, you can chalk that up to public relations, i.e. “Look! We’re doing something to remedy this situation!”

Remember that law equals politics. For instance, you will occasionally see senators and “representatives” dress down morally bankrupt, financial criminals known as CEOs in committee hearings. However, this is a mere charade. The dogs are engaging in mere theater, with their masters. After the performance, the council may recommend future study - and the rats might even issue a report on the findings months later. In the meantime, everything returns to normal. The big-ass campaign checks continue to be written and cashed. In the end, an audit of the toilets’ figures should be conducted by an entirely independent agency or firm. However, the ABA will not broach the subject.

LLM Programs are “Popular” Due to Desperation Among Recent Unemployed JDs


Jack CriTTenden’s Rag Spins This as a Positive:

http://www.nxtbook.com/nxtbooks/cypress/nationaljurist1012/index.php#/28

In the October 2012 edition of the NaTTTional Juri$TTT, Owen Praskievicz published an article entitled “Standing Out: Why LL.M.’s Are More Popular Than Ever.” Take a look at the following $elf-$erving quotes, from this publicaTTTion:

“In the past 12 years, LL.M. programs in the United States have more than doubled, bringing the number of students seeking a Master of Law to more than 10,000. There are more than 300 programs in the U.S. today, compared to just 110 in 2000. While a large part of that growth is an increase in international LL.M. offerings, the larger factor is a move toward specialization for domestic J.D. students.” [Emphasis mine]

This reeks of desperation, not a move toward “specialization.” When JDs cannot find legal employment, many of them foolishly decide to enter a foul LLM program – in the vain hope that the “credential” will make them more marketable.

"Employers value and recognize that when they want to hire someone for their tax department, they want someone who has a tax LL.M.," said Michael Friel, director of the graduate tax program at University of Florida, Frederic G. Levin College of Law.”

This is coming from the very pig who heads the LLM program at the University of Florida Frederic H. Levin Commode of Law. What do you expect the swine to snort?

In a pathetic fluff/sales piece, here is one telling excerpt:

“I think most of the schools that have started programs after 2000, or have expanded dramatically, have largely been driven by the financial pressure,” said Joel Paul, director of the global LL.M. program at University of California, Hastings College of Law, noting that tightening budgets are especially prevalent at state schools that have lost funding. “A lot of schools use the LL.M. program to subsidize their J.D. program.”

Dean Raymond Nimmer of the University of Houston Law Center agreed, but stressed that not everything is black and white.

“There probably are some law schools that are using LL.M. programs to offset declining J.D. revenue, but we are not one of them,” Nimmer said. “We have intentionally reduced our J.D. class size. It is the new shape of a great law school.”

The dogs and pigs always portray their schools/commodes as innocent participants in this scheme. Of course, they point out that other schools may be using their LLM programs to increase revenue. There is no honor among academic thieves and financial criminals.

Small Sampling of Putrid LLMs:

http://spaceandtelecomlaw.unl.edu/why.shtml

“Why Space, Cyber, and Telecommunications Law?

Space industries are a $250 billion/year global market and growing rapidly. The telecommunications industry is a $1.4 trillion/year global market with continued strong growth anticipated. Both industries are global with the United States being the single largest actor. The space and telecommunications industries share an overlapping legal regime to an extent and increasingly share concerns over common problems, including space traffic management and security and risk management of space assets.” 

Yes, you can earn an LLM in Space Law from the University of Nebraska! Imagine how many law firms will wet their pants upon seeing your "impressive" resume!

http://law.uark.edu/academics/llm/

“Food, Farming & Sustainability: The LL.M. Program in Agricultural & Food Law

The University of Arkansas School of Law offers the only advanced legal degree program in agricultural & food law in the United States, with a curriculum specializing in the law of food and agriculture.”

A Food Law LLM will certainly lead to gainful employment, in a big-ass firm or agency, right?!?! Who knows? Maybe you will become head of the USDA, with this credenTTTial. At least, the University of Arkansas Sewer of Law has the highest ranked agricultural law LLM in the nation.

Other Coverage on This TTTT Development:

http://insidethelawschoolscam.blogspot.com/2012/10/llm-programs.html

On October 18, 2012, Paul Campos posted an entry labeled “LLM Programs.” Look at the following statement:

“Nevertheless, it appears that, in these days of sharply declining applicants to JD programs, LLM programs are coming to be considered something of a godsend by cash-strapped schools. Here's a bemusing quote from a two-year-old NLJ article:

Administrators point out that per-student costs tend to be lower for advanced law degree programs because the curriculum largely consists of classes already offered to J.D. students - meaning there is little need to hire additional faculty. "Are these programs a cash cow? Yes and no," said Indiana University Maurer School of Law - Bloomington professor Carole Silver. "The school gets a year of tuition and the LL.M. students fill in the seats in classes that would otherwise be empty." [Emphasis mine]

Conclusion: Anyone with a brain stem – and a basic understanding of the law school cartel – recognizes that the ABA-accredited toilets produce FAR TOO MANY GRADS each year. Now that various “professors” and the mainstream press have picked up on this message, prospective law students have discovered that law school is a terrible financial and career decision. As a result, the trash pits have been forced to reduce their class sizes. The schools are not going to willingly give up tons of federally-backed student loan funds. Since the commodes pump out too many grads – into a shrinking U.S. lawyer job market – MANY desperate JDs are now pursuing another worthless academic “credential.” Of course, the law school pigs are happy to “come to the rescue” of these desperate, unemployed fools - by offering yet another degree.  Remember, more "education" is NOT the answer.  Quit digging yourself a bigger hole, and pass on this worthless "Master of Laws" program.

NALP’s Executive Director Admits That Biglaw Hiring Will Not Return to Pre-Recession Levels


The Admission:

http://insidethelawschoolscam.blogspot.com/2012/10/five-stages-of-grief.html

On Saturday, October 13, 2012, Paul Campos published a sobering blog piece entitled “Five stages of grief.” Take a look at this opening:

“James Leipold, the Executive Director of NALP, has a striking column in this month's print issue of the NALP Bulletin. Leipold begins by noting his surprise that "a number of law schools, through their dean or their office of career services, have called on NALP generally and on me specifically to develop a more positive message about the entry-level job market. One request went so far as to urge me to describe the entry-level legal employment market as good.

Shocking but, sadly, not surprising. Law schools have had to disclose their sobering job outcomes, but they want to reassure applicants that the market is "fundamentally strong" and will "turn around shortly. Fortunately, Leipold points out that he can't say things that are false." [Emphasis mine]

This further proves that the law school pigs do not give one damn about their recruits, current students or recent graduates. They simply want you to believe that law school is a sound investment. But we are supposed to show respect to these deceitful cockroaches, because they are “law professors,” right?!?!

Later on, the article continued:

“After pointing to steeply declining outcomes for the Classes of 2009 through 2011, Leipold writes: "We also know that the large law firm hiring model is different than it was before the recession, and is not likely ever going to look like it did in the last years before the economic collapse. That is because the business environment for large law firms has changed in significant ways that are likely to be permanent, or at least it has changed because of trends that are not likely to reverse themselves."

There you have it. Leipold is someone who hangs out with BigLaw partners and recruiters; BigLaw is the backbone of NALP. He also has every incentive to portray legal hiring as optimistically as possible; see above on pressure from law schools. If Leipold thinks BigLaw will not revive its ebullient hiring practices, then it almost certainly will not.” [Emphasis mine]

NALP’s Class of 2011 National Summary Report:

http://www.nalp.org/uploads/NatlSummChart_Classof2011.pdf

ABA-accredited trash pits pumped out 44,495 graduates in 2011. Out of that gigantic number, employment status was known for 41,623 JDs. These grads competed for a mere 27,224 jobs labeled “bar passage required.” Yes, that represents 61.2% of all cohort members. Keep in mind that not all of these are traditional attorney positions.

Scroll down to page two of this PDF, and head to the section “Size of Firm.” You will see that only 17,666 grads reported working in private law firms. THIS EQUATES TO 39.7 PERCENT OF THE ENTIRE 2011 CLASS ENDING UP IN PRIVATE PRACTICE! Furthermore, a total of 1,059 desperate souls went into solo practice. Another 7,570 were employed in firms of 2-10 lawyers. Nearly half, i.e. 48.8 percent, of private lawyers came from these two categories. Do you think that ABA law schools are producing too many graduates?!?! Let these numbers sink in for a moment.

NALP’s Selected Findings, for the JD Class of 2011: 

http://www.nalp.org/uploads/PressReleases/Classof2011ERSSSelectedFindingsPressRelease.pdf

On June 7, 2012, NALP furnished a press release labeled “Law School Grads Face Worst Job Market Yet — Less Than Half Find Jobs in Private Practice.”  Take a look at the following excerpt:

“According to Selected Findings from the Employment Report and Salary Survey for the Class of 2011 released today by NALP, the overall employment rate for new law school graduates is, at 85.6%, the lowest it has been since 1994, when the rate stood at 84.7%. In addition to an overall employment rate that fell two percentage points from that for the previous class, and that has dropped each year since 2008, the Class of 2011 employment figures reveal a job market with many underlying structural weaknesses. The employment profile for this class also marks a continued interruption of employment patterns for new law school graduates that had, prior to 2010, been undisturbed for decades.” [Emphasis mine]

Conclusion: Apparently, the dung beetles know that the game is over. “Law professors” and deans may continue to claim that the legal job market is going to improve. However, do not expect too many of their close allies to make such assertions, and place their names and repuTTTaTTTions at risk. Mentally deficient lemmings need to realize that the facts cited come from the industry.

Biglaw clients are sophisticated enough to realize that they do not need to pay firms big dollars to train new lawyers. The fact remains that this area is pretty much limited to those who attended elite schools, as well as those who are have sterling connections and the right family name. If you have a pathetically low chance of ending up in Biglaw, then there is NO DAMN REASON to incur an additional $110K-$170K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt for a law degree. Hell, would you pay ridiculous sums of money for one lottery ticket - or $30 for a single chance to win a prize from McDonald’s Monopoly campaign?!?!

Second Tier Bird Droppings: University of Louisville Louis D. Brandeis School of Law

http://www.law.louisville.edu/admissions/cost-attendance

Tuition: Kentucky residents attending this commode on a full-time basis will be charged $17,694 in tuition, for the 2012-2013 school year. Out-of-state full-time law students at the University of Louisville will be slapped with a big-ass tuition bill of $33,866 – for 2012-2013. Some apologist cockroaches will maintain that this is a “reasonable” rate. However, those dogs are comparing this to schools that charge $40K+ per year in tuition.

Total Cost of Attendance: According to this same document, room and board; books and supplies; travel; personal expenses; technology and Stafford Loan fees will add another $19,086 to the tab. As such, the toilet published the following estimated COA for in-state, full-time law students: $36,780. For full-time, non-residents, this figure came out to $52,952.

Keep in mind that ABA-accredited trash heaps list living expenses – on a nine-month basis. Seeing that actual students will require such costs for the entire year, I have prorated expenses for the following areas: room and board; travel; and personal/miscellaneous. With those calculations, a more accurate, estimated COA will amount to $42,714 for in-state, full-time students, and $58,886 for non-resident full-time students – for 2012-2013. What a bargain, right?!?!

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

Ranking: The garbage pit is named after Louis D. Brandeis, a former member of The Supremes. This MUST make it one hell of a law school, correct?!?! Well, Pussy Bob Morse of US “News” & World Report has listed Univer$iTTy of Loui$ville Loui$ D. Brandei$ Sewer of Law as the 89th greatest, most magnificent, and illustrious law school in the entire United States. In fact, there are seven law schools who share this particular rating! One question: when so many schools share a ranking, doesn’t that take away from the prestige of the 89th spot?!?!

http://www.law.louisville.edu/professionaldevelopment/employment-report

Published Employment Placement Data: Take a look at the Class of 2011 Employment Report, which was reported the racketeer influenced and corrupt organization known as the American Bar Association. This document is provided by the commode’s Office of “Professional” Development.

The school lists 97 grads, from this cohort, as being employed in jobs where bar passage is required. Another 33 JDs are listed as working in “JD Advantage” positions – whatever the hell that means. However, when you go to the section labeled Employment Type, you will see that only 54 members of this class ended up working in law firms. Of that figure, 40 are working in the following two categories: desperate solos; and in firms of 2-10 lawyers. Only one person is working in a firm of 51-100 attorneys, and the same applies to firms of the following sizes: 101-250 and 251-500 lawyers. How do you like your odds of landing stable legal employment now, lemming?!?!

Notice that the pile of bird feces does not even bother to publish median or starting salary info, for this class. Perhaps, the school is too modest or embarrassed to mention the stratospheric levels of its graduates’ income.

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

Average Law Student Indebtedness: US “News” listed the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the Univer$iTTy of Loui$ville JD Class of 2011 who incurred debt for law school - as $78,725. According to this listing, 100 percent of this dung heap’s 2011 class took on such rotten debt. Remember that these figures do not include interest that accrues on the outstanding balance, while the student is enrolled.

Amazing Academic “Opportunity”:

http://www.jael-online.org/?page_id=5

“The Journal of Animal and Environmental Law (JAEL) started in 2009 as an interdisciplinary journal focusing on the increased interest and support of both animal and environmental law at the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law. JAEL's goal is to become an essential resource for judges, lawyers, teachers, and school administrators on matters relating to animal and environmental law.”

Who wouldn’t be impressed with you, if you landed a student editor position on this TTT publication?!?! Hell, even if you managed to become a mere staff member, southern belles are likely to spread their legs wide open for you. [Note: nothing of the sort will happen – as those women will get on all fours for the university's fourth string running back before they even acknowledge your existence, moron.]

Conclusion: The University of Louisville Louis D. Brandeis Sewer of Law is a pathetic trash can. If you want to roll the dice on YOUR FUTURE, then step right up and send in your application to this ABA-approved cesspool. Remember that student debt, unlike gambling debts and lavish credit card bills, cannot be wiped out in bankruptcy proceedings. You will not be served well by incurring an additional $85K-$130K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt, for a chance to practice law in a small firm. If you are married to the idea of going to law school and becoming an attorney, realize that everything boils down to economics. Women don’t want some scrub making $35K-$45K per year. On top of that, try purchasing a home – and paying off your student loans - on such a paltry salary.

Third Tier Explosive Diarrhea: Quinnipiac University School of Law


http://law.quinnipiac.edu/x56.xml

Tuition: For the 2012-2013 school year, full-time victims/students will be charged $46,260 in tuition, so that one can attend this magnificent institution of “higher learning.” In comparison, full-time tuition at Harvard Law School - for 2012-2013 - is $49,950. These schools must be in the same league, right?!?! Part-time law students at Quinnipiac will only face $32,400 in tuition costs, for the current academic year, if they take 10 credit hours per semester.

http://law.quinnipiac.edu/x59.xml

Total Cost of Attendance: In the worst-case scenario, i.e. an off-campus student attending this commode full-time, the ABA trash heap estimates that fees, books, living allowance, and loan fees will add another $20,742 to the big-ass tab. Of course, the cockroaches provide these costs on nine months. As such, the school claims that the total estimated budget will be $67,002 - for 2012-2013.

Seeing that actual students will require expenses for the full year, I have prorated the living costs - in order to provide a more accurate figure. These expenditures increase to $24,699 - from $18,524. As a result, the proper, estimated COA - for the current year at this commode - will amount to $73,177. Who doesn’t have that level of money lying around?!?!

http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-law-schools/law-rankings/page+5

Ranking: Based on its ridiculous cost of admission, this must be one incredible law school, correct?!?! Well…according to US “News”& World Report, Quinnipiac Univer$iTTTy Sewer of Law is the 107th greatest, most elite law school in the entire nation. For some reason, Pussy Robert Morse of the defunct magazine is currently displaying the ratings for last year.

http://law.quinnipiac.edu/prebuilt/pdf/EmploymentDataClass2011.pdf

Employment Data, for the Class of 2011: According to Quinnipiac University, the JD Class of 2011 had 133 members. Of this figure, only 57 grads reported working in a job where bar passage was required. $omehow, the toilet conveniently forgot to publish a “placement” rate. Apparently, one person did not provide employment status to the commode. The school claims that 108 out of 132 graduates found some type of employment, within nine months of graduation. This translates to an employment rate of 81.81 percent. Hell, for this class, one’s chances of landing a job “requiring bar passage” was 43.18%. What a prestigious law school, huh?!?!

Scroll down a little, to find a real gem of information. Of the 47 grads working in law firms, four worked as sole practitioners and 34 landed employment in firms of 2-10 attorneys. In fact, only two grads ended up in a firm of 101-250 lawyers - and exactly one Quinnipiac JD from this cohort worked in a law firm of more than 251 attorneys. How do you like those odds, Lemming?!?!

Average Law Student Indebtedness: USN&WR lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the Quinnipiac Univer$iTTTy JD Class of 2010 who incurred debt for law school - as $96,256. Furthermore, 81 percent of this dung heap’s 2010 class took on such toxic debt. Apparently, Vagina Bob Morse has also replaced his 2013 data with that of the prior year. What a man of “integrity.” I guess the sewer rat doesn’t mind making the numbers look lower. Remember that these figures do not include interest that accrues on the outstanding balance, while the student is enrolled.

Administrator Salary Info: Let’s juxtapose the debt-strapped graduate with the chief academic leech, at this supposed "non-profit."  John Lahey, “president” of this garbage university, raked in $1,137,132 in TOTAL COMPENSATION - for the tax year ending June 30, 2011. Yes, this grotesque pig received $875,405 in reportable compensation from the school; $218,851 in reportable compensation from related organizations; and $42,876 in estimated amount of other compensation from the organization and related organizations. This “man” doesn’t even have the balls to provide his photo on his university bio. I suppose this equates to “leadership” in academia. But that is fine. After all, this swine was inducted into the Irish American Hall of Fame earlier this year. And that is extremely important, right?!

Conclusion: Avoid Quinnipiac University School of Law, at all costs. If you attend and graduate from this third tier garbage can, the best, probable outcome that you can hope for is that you will end up in a law firm of 2-10 attorneys. You DO NOT need to incur an additional $100K-$135K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt, for a chance to earn $45K per year. By the way, try purchasing a home, or starting a family, on that paltry income - especially in the northeastern United States.  What bank will extend to you a small business loan or mortgage, with your massive student debt? If you are lucky enough to work for a small law firm, imagine your insurance coverage.

In the final analysis, you must look at law school PRIMARILY or SOLELY as a financial decision. Everything boils down to economics. The Boomers told us, since infancy, that “Higher education is THE KEY to your future.” Parents, grade school teachers, extended family members, policymakers, politicians/servants of the oligarchs, well-meaning adults in positions of supposed authority informed us that by doing so, “You will be making an investment in yourself.” Well, most people seek to make a positive return on their ventures. Apparently, it is okay for everyone but college grads to have this mindset. This decision will affect you for the rest of your life. Do not piss your future away on this terrible bet.
