Fourth Tier Flush: Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University College of Law
Tuition: Florida residents, attending this trash heap on a full-time basis, will face a tuition bill of $14,131.66 - for the 2012-2013 school year. Out-of-state, full-time law students will be ball-punched to the tune of $34,034.59, for 2012-2013. Part-time, in-state students will pay $10,028.92, whereas non-resident, part-time lemmings will only be ass-raped at the rate of $24,153.58.
Estimated Total Cost of Attendance: The toilet provides nice, round numbers for living expenses and other costs associated with obtaining a “legal education” at this garbage pit. The bastards claim that these other essentials will add another $25,000 to the tab.
Keep in mind that ABA-accredited diploma mills base their figures on a nine-month academic year, as opposed to an actual calendar year. I have prorated the following items, in order to reflect this situation: room, board, personal and transportation. Doing so, associated expenses amount to $32,667. Do you think that makes a difference to a student’s budget - or outstanding debt load?!?! As such, we reach a more accurate, estimated COA of $46,798.66, for in-state, full-time law students - for 2012-2013. This sum will run up to $66,701.59, for non-residents attending the commode full-time, for the same year.
Ranking: At these prices, you would expect this “institution of higher learning” to have a solid reputation, correct? According to Pussy Bob Morse and US “News” & World Report, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University College of Law is rated in the illustrious fourth tier of American law schools! Their mothers must be very proud.
Pathetic Employment Placement Rate: The fourth tier waste heap furnishes “placement” data, for the Class of 2008. Apparently, the school is unable to provide more recent numbers. The school had 107 graduates, from this particular class. Of that amount, only 72 reported landing employment within nine months of earning their JDs. Yes, 67 percent “placement” rates spell excellence, right?!?! Furthermore, only 50 of the employed grads ended up in jobs where bar passage was required. Very impressive!!
Average Law Student Indebtedness: USN&WR lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the FAMU Commode of Law Class of 2011 who incurred debt for law school - as $96,934. By the way, 92 percent of this 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 in school.
Famous Alum, Alcee Lamar Hastings:
“Graduates of the Florida A&M University College of Law include:
Alcee L. Hastings, U.S. Congressman - ‘63”
The other two grads listed on this page, earned their law degrees in 1965 and 1968. What an academic powerhouse, huh?!?! The school was re-established in 2000. Evidently, the sewage pit has not produced any distinguished or notable graduates since that time.
Read this David Johnston piece for the New York Times, from October 21, 1989. The article was entitled “Hastings Ousted As Senate Vote Convicts Judge.” Here is the opening:
“In a solemn two-hour proceeding, the Senate today removed Federal District Judge Alcee L. Hastings from the bench by convicting him of eight impeachment articles, including one charging that he had conspired to obtain a $150,000 bribe.
Judge Hastings sat silently facing the senators as Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia called out on the first article, ''Senators, how say you, Is the respondent guilty or not guilty?''
The vote was 69 to 26, providing five votes more than the two-thirds of those present that were needed to convict. The first article accused the judge of conspiracy. Conviction on any single article was enough to remove the judge from office, and he left shortly after the vote.” [Emphasis mine]
Of course, Florida voters have been dumb enough to re-elect this impeached federal pig judge/ass-clown to Congre$$, every two years, after first sending him there in 1992. Somehow, Hastings "forgot" to include his judicial impeachment on his biography; he lists his law degree, and also mentions becoming the first black person to be appointed to the federal bench in Florida history.
Conclusion: Avoid this fourth tier pile of moist fecal matter - at all costs. What the hell do you expect from a school that is operated by a parent insTTTTiTTTTuTTTTion known as Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University?! You DO NOT NEED to incur an additional $110K-$150K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt, for a chance to practice law. The toilet does not even provide employment info, for its three most recent graduating classes, for which data is available. Plus, the "placement" rate for the Class of 2008 was weak. That speaks volumes about the quality of this cesspool.
