First Tier Eagle Droppings: Emory University School of Law
Tuition: Full-time law students at Emory Univer$ity face a ridiculous tuition bill of $47,500 - for the 2013-2014 school year. Fees add up to another $674, for a total amount of $$48,174. At a certain point, you realize that there is no legitimate reason for such outrageous prices. This is not medical school, which requires large costs in lab space and technology.
Total, Estimated Cost of Attendance: According to this same page, other costs will reach $26,422. Hence, the commode lists the estimated COA as $74,596 - for first and second year law students. Isn’t it nice to see that the law school swine put their students’ interests first?!?!
However, one must realize that ABA-accredited diploma mills base their estimates on a nine-month calendar. Since actual students will require costs over the full year, we will prorate living expenses. The remaining items will remain unaffected. The pigs at Emory list living costs as $17,964. Based on that price, the 12 month figure would be $23,952. As such, the total estimated COA - for one damn year at this law school - is $80,584!! Who the hell has that kind of money?!
Ranking: Based on the rankings from US “News” & World Report, Emory University Sewer of Law is rated as the 23rd most sensational and mesmerizing law school in the country. Hell, it only shares this distinction with one other ABA-accredited school.
Published Employment Statistics: Let’s take a look at the toilet’s Class of 2012 Employment Report. You will notice that there were 266 total graduates in this cohort. Apparently, everyone submitted their employment status. Only 215 members of this class landed full-time, long term employment!! This includes non-legal work, as well. That represents 80.8% of all grads.
Of course, the ABA allows schools to count part-time and short-term jobs in their tabulations. After all, who didn’t decide to go to law school, with the intention of working such garbage positions, right?!?! Therefore, the “official” nine-month, employment placement rate is 96.2 percent, i.e. 256/266.
By the way, this school - which is supposedly the 23rd greatest law school in the United States - hired 37 of its 2012 grads in university or law school-funded positions! Yes, that is the true hallmark of a “prestigious” school, huh?!?! You will note that 17 of these were full-time, long term - while the remaining 20 jobs were part-time and long term. Without resorting to this measure, the placement rate would only have been 82.3%, i.e. 219/266. In sum, the school increased this figure by nearly 14 percent - with this underhanded tactic.
Average Law Student Indebtedness: USN&WR lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the Emory Law Class of 2012 who incurred debt for law school - as $105,838. However, only 76 percent of this commode’s 2012 class took on such foul debt. Remember that this figure does not include undergraduate debt – and it also does not take accrued interest into account, while the student is enrolled.
The Former Home of Super-Bitch Sara K. Stadler: Here is the video of Sara Stadler delivering the commencement address to the 2011 graduating class of Emory University. The speech starts at 36:10 and ends at the 45:20 mark.
As reported by Debra Cassens Weiss, in the May 26, 2011 edition of the ABA Journal:
“Emory University law professor Sara Stadler thinks law grads need to stop coveting high-paying jobs that just aren’t available. And she said so in a commencement speech earlier this month.
"Get over it,” Stadler told law grads. “The one thing standing in the way of your happiness is a sense of entitlement." The Fulton County Daily Report covered the speech.” [Emphasis mine]
Keep in mind that this pile of human excrement is the daughter of former U.$. $olicitor General James Lee Rankin. The bastard was also general counsel to the Warren Commission, which helped cover up the murder of JFK - which is what it was assembled for, people.
Conclusion: Nearly one-fourth of the 2012 graduating class at Emory Law did not incur a single dime of student debt, for their JD. You are competing with connected, rich kids for top jobs. If you are not part of the club, then they have huge advantages over your ass - before you even set foot in law school. They have real connections, i.e. their fathers can make a phone call and get their kids nice jobs. Additionally, those students will not be financially ruined by their decision to attend law school.
As a person of modest means, YOU will essentially be required to take on an additional $115K-$170K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt - for a chance to enter the shrinking legal “profession.” Do you like those odds, Dumbass?!?! If so, then you should take your carcass to a riverboat casino and bet your life savings on the upcoming Super Bowl. Hell, your chances of winning are actually better if you do so, lemming.
