First Tier Catholic Commode: Boston College Law School
Tuition: Full-time law students at Bo$ton College will be charged $44,860 in tuition, for the 2013-2014 school year. At least, the bastards are only assessing $371 in fees. That’s exactly what the Biblical Jesus would do!
Total Cost of Attendance: According to this same document, living expenses will add $18,060 to the gigantic tab. Books are estimated at $1,300. As such, the total budget - for 2013-2014 - is listed as $64,591. It’s nice to see that the pigs are looking out for their students’ best interests, huh?!?!
Keep in mind that ABA-accredited diploma mills base this figure off of the nine-month academic year. The commode even notes the following: *Room - rent: $900 x 9 months = $8,100. The other costs appear to be for the school year. Take a look at the Utilities budget of $1,485. Remember this when you are enduring those brutal winters. Prorating all of these expenses over twelve months, we come up with $24,080. With this additional $6,020, we reach a more accurate, total COA of $70,611.
Ranking: The bitches and hags at US “News” & World Report rate Bo$ton College Law as the 31st best law school in the entire country - along with the JD diploma mill at UNC Chapel Hill. If you get into this school, then your future in Biglaw is assured, right?!?!
Employment Placement Rate: Based on this chart, 84.23% of the Class of 2012 was employed within nine months of graduation. There were 260 members of this cohort, and only 137 grads bothered to furnish salary data. Check out the commode’s explanation for its declining placement rates below:
*2012, 2011 and 2010: Percent of Class Employed is based on a formula recently utilized by U.S. News - number of graduates employed divided by the total number of students in the class and does not adjust for those graduates enrolled in full time graduate programs, those who are not seeking employment, and those who did not respond.
Here is the BC Law Class of 2012 Employment Summary Report. You will also notice that the school placed 12 JDs in university or law school funded positions. Also, only 118 members of this cohort ended up working in law firms. That represents 45.4 percent of the class. Of this amount, 40 were employed in firms of 501+ attorneys. Another 4 landed positions with enterprises that employ 251-500 lawyers.
If Biglaw is loosely defined as legal employers with 251 or more attorneys, then 16.9% of this one class - at the 31st ranked school in the country - achieved this goal. So much for having secured a lucrative future, merely by attending this school.
Average Law Student Indebtedness: US “News” lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the Boston College JD Class of 2012 who incurred debt for law school - as $106,550. By the way, 84 percent of this school’s 2012 class took on such toxic debt. Remember, this figure does not include undergraduate debt. It also does not take accrued interest into account. Keep that in mind, Lemming.
Tertiary Law Journal Opportunities: As a BC law student, you will have a chance to write onto the "world famous" Boston College Journal of Law & Social Justice! Mention this to attractive women at the bar. When they say that’s quite a mouthful, make sure to follow it up with a cheesy one-liner, you ass-clown. That will seal the deal for sure. Here is a partial description of this particular garbage law journal:
“The Boston College Journal of Law & Social Justice (founded in 1978 and publishing its first thirty-one volumes as the Third World Law Journal) is a unique periodical that fills the need for a progressive, alternative legal perspective on issues both within the United States and in the developing world. The Journal's scope includes issues affecting underrepresented populations, human and civil rights, immigration, women's and children's issues, and issues of disproportionate economic impact...The founders of the Journal envisioned it as a forum for discussing legal issues affecting people, cultures, and institutions that share a common history of colonialism, oppression, under-representation, and marginalization in the political and economic processes. Today, the Journal’s scope recognizes that issues of disproportionate economic impact implicate a complex matrix of social, economic, and political crises confronting minority groups in both the developed and developing worlds.”
Conclusion: In the final analysis, if you are not from a wealthy family and are not on a significant scholarship, then attending this school WILL lead to you incurring ridiculous levels of NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt. You will not be served well by taking on an additional $120K-$160K in student loans. Try purchasing a home or starting a family with that level of debt constantly hanging over your head.
If you are a man, then you should understand that women want financial stability. This helps explain why you often see pretty, young women with pot-bellied douche-bags who go out in public wearing ugly polo sweaters and striped shorts that resemble boxers. At such a tender age, these girls simply want to have shopping money. And they will date a moron, if that’s what it takes. However, once women mature, they desire a house, children, insurance, etc. In sum, they don’t want someone who makes $35K per year, even if he has a law degree. Especially when he is drowning in student loan debt.
