Roger Williams University School of Law to Cut Tuition by 18 Percent, and Pennsylvania State University SOL to Slash In-State Tuition in Half
Roger Williams University’s “Decision”: On January 15, 2014, the Providence Journal published reporter Thomas J. Morgan’s article, “Roger Williams to cut law school tuition by 18 percent.” Here is the entire text of that piece:
“Roger Williams University announced Wednesday that it is cutting its law school tuition by 18 percent for the 2014-2015 school year.
That means tuition will go from $41,400 to $33,792, the university announced in a news release.
The school said that tuition will be capped at that level for the next three years.
Roger Williams is now the best priced private American Bar Association-accredited law school in the Northeast, the school said.” [Emphasis mine]
We now know that these pigs are desperate. I love how the newspaper tries to spin this story, in the last sentence. Hell, it seems that the flea-covered rats wrote the conclusion. Did Morgan even bother to fact-check, to see if the claim is true?
Based on the current rankings from US “News” & World Report, Roger William$ Univer$iTTTTy Sewer of Law is floating in the fourth tier of ABA law schools. What an academic powerhouse, huh?!?! In the end, nobody gives a damn if a FOURTH TIER PIECE OF EXCREMENT is the best-priced, private ABA law school in the region. Remember that the commode removed the name of major donor Ralph R. Papitto from the law school, when he used the word “nigger” in a board meeting
Pedophile State University “Chooses” to Reduce Tuition: Alicia Albertson’s piece, “Penn State to cut tuition by almost half for Penn. residents,” appeared in the January 8, 2014 edition of the NaTTTional Juri$TTT. Look at the first two paragraphs:
“Only a year after it decided to divide into two separate law schools, Penn State University Dickinson School of Law has announced it will cut tuition by almost half for Pennsylvania residents.
Penn State Law will offer residents an annual grant of $20,000 through the Commonwealth Scholars program. The program will be available to any student enrolling in the fall of 2014, so long as they are residents of Pennsylvania. The grant is renewable for three years. Tuition is normally $41,088 for in-state students.” [Emphasis mine]
Later on in the article, we get to the meat and potatoes of this “decision”:
“Penn State has seen applications plummet from 5,326 in 2010 to 1,885 in 2013. Enrollment has also dropped, from 228 entering students in 2010 to 132 this year. This comes at the same time that the school is in the process of splitting into two separate schools.
Penn State took over Carlisle-based Dickinson School of Law, a private school, in 2000. It planned to move the law school to State College but ran into opposition in 2005. Instead, it opened its State College campus in 2006 and has operated the two campuses as one single entity since then. In 2008, it received a $25 million grant from a regional government entity to upgrade the Carlisle campus, but with the caveat that first-, second- and third-year programs remain in the state capitol until at least 2020.
The recent decline in applications and enrollment forced the law school to reconsider that arrangement. The law school asked the regional authority to approve shifting all first-year law students to State College, in order to consolidate and cut expenses. But the regional authority declined.
So, the faculty voted to separate into two different schools, with Carlisle to be a more regional law school with relaxed admissions standards, and State College to focus on being a national law school. But with the drop in enrollment and reduction in tuition, some say the plan is risky.” [Emphasis mine]
I am smiling from ear to ear, as I write this entry. It is great to see these swine scramble for applicants. Keep in mind that this steep decline in enrollment comes at a time when it is easier to gain admission to ABA law schools nationally.
According to USN&WR, Pennsylvania State University’s Dickinson Sewer of Law is ranked as the 64th greatest, most prestigious law school in the entire country. Their mothers must be very proud.
Conclusion: You know that these cockroaches are getting desperate for asses in seats. Why else would these scamming bastards slash tuition to such levels? In both cases, the big-ass reductions are renewable for all three years of law school. Our collective work in spreading the truth about the law school pigs has led to these measures. The general public is now MUCH better informed about the insane costs and pathetic job prospects facing debt-strapped law graduates. The academic thieves will continue to falsely assert that “Now is a great time to attend law school.” However, these bitches and hags have nothing substantive to back up those claims. They simply want naïve lemmings to buy into those lies.
