Power Flush: Thomas M. Cooley Law School and the University of La Verne College of Law Experience the Biggest-Ass Drops in Enrollment - by Percentage - Since 2010
Toilets Getting Flushed: The NaTTTional Juri$TTT published Alicia Albertson’s piece, which was entitled “Cooley, NYLS have largest enrollment declines since 2010-2011” - on February 17, 2014. Take a look at this opening:
“The drop in law school applications during the past three years has had a profound impact on enrollment, according to a new study by The National Jurist.
Law school enrollment has dropped by an average of 99 students per school from 2010-2011 to 2013-2014, with only 16 schools enjoying an increase in students.
Eighteen law schools saw enrollment drop by more than 30 percent, led by University of La Verne (down 66.2 percent) and Thomas M. Cooley Law School (down 40.6 percent). Cooley Law School, with five campuses in Michigan and Florida, dropped from 3,931 students in 2010-2011 to 2,334 students in 2013-2014, the single largest drop in raw numbers.” [Emphasis mine]
This is excellent news. Only a truly sick bastard would view this otherwise. Remember, “law professors” and administrators have consigned LEGIONS of students and graduates to a lifetime of debt servitude and financial ruin - over the course of several decades.
At the conclusion of this article, you will see a chart showing the 25 ABA-accredited dung heaps that have had the largest enrollment declines, as a percentage. Among these commodes: New York Law $chool; Widener University - both campuses; $eTTon Haul; Western New England “University”; Appalachian Sewer of Law; VermonTTT Law School; and Pace University.
Other Coverage: On February 18, 2014, Staci Zaretsky posted an epic ATL entry labeled “Ouch: The Law Schools With The Biggest Drops In Enrollment Since 2010.” Check out this portion:
“For the past few years, law schools have been in a state of crisis, and it’s getting worse. Prospective students just aren’t as interested as they used to be in borrowing up to six figures of government Monopoly money in the hope of surviving the post-graduation gauntlet of legal employment. At last count, applicants were down 11.1 percent from this time last year, and national 1L enrollment is down 24 percent from where it was in 2010.
Unable to keep up with the changing times and put asses in seats, law schools are doing anything they can to cut costs — up to and including laying off faculty and staff. Amid hefty declines in enrollment, some schools seem to be struggling.” [Emphasis mine]
As scam-bloggers have pointed out for a while, the law school pigs did not “strategically plan” to scale back their operations. They were essentially forced to decrease enrollment. Hell, according to Paul Campos, the rodents are accepting a higher percentage of applicants than ever before!
Later on, Zaretsky reported the following:
“All joking aside, the schools that have purposefully reduced their class sizes — by more than two handfuls of students — are doing a very good thing. But when a law school’s decline in student enrollment is greater than 30 percent, we’ve got to wonder what portion of that percentage was planned.
In a recent study, National Jurist compared data from the 2010-2011 school year to data from the 2013-2014 school year using numbers from law schools’ most recent American Bar Association 509 reports. Without further ado, here are the 10 law schools with the biggest drops in enrollment since 2010:
University of La Verne: -66.2 percent
Cooley Law School: -40.6 percent
Catholic University: -39.5 percent
New York Law School: -38.7 percent
University of Dayton: -38.5 percent
Pacific McGeorge School of Law: -38.4 percent
Widener University – Harrisburg: -36.9 percent
University of New Hampshire: -34.8 percent
Seton Hall University: -34.7 percent
Liberty University: -33.9 percent” [Emphasis mine]
You’re welcome, law school swine! Once prospective students received better information about your garbage product, fewer of them chose to incur insane amounts of NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt for dwindling job prospects.
Conclusion: The law school pigs are sweating their little balls off, due to the consistent, steep decline in applications. Again, these bitches and hags DO NOT GIVE ONE DAMN about their students or recent graduates. The cockroaches merely want to keep the scam going for as long as possible. The academic parasites should be happy that they were able to fleece the taxpayers - and financially rape the students - for such an extended period of time. Instead, the pathetic, selfish whores are sobbing over their supposed misfortune. In a just world, these vile creatures would be shoved into small crates - and force-fed their own excrement.
