Fourth Tier Dung Heap Appalachian School of Law is Involuntarily Reducing Staff and Class Sizes
Excellent News!: On March 18, 2014, the Roanoke Times re-posted an Allie Robinson Gibson piece, under the epic headline “Appalachian School of Law to scale back classes, staff.” Check out this opening:
“A national decline in applicants to law schools and a desire to return to local roots led to a law school’s announcement this week that it will downsize its incoming class of students and tighten its budget belt in other ways.
The Appalachian School of Law in Grundy will whittle down class sizes until they’re more in line with the number accepted when the school opened about 16 years ago, Lucy McGough, dean of the law school, said Tuesday.
“We were about 150 to 200 students when Appalachian Law School was founded, now 16 years ago, and then we rode the rising tide like all other American law schools and grew larger,” she said. “At one time, we had a student body approaching double that, near 300.”
McGough said the school is experiencing a decline in applications, and some of the things added during the school’s expansion have been trimmed.
“[We’re] returning to a smaller school because that’s probably closer to our mission in any event,” she said. “We’re a school … principally for the Appalachian region, a six-state region. The choice to keep it the same size would mean you’d have to take applicants of lesser quality. Given our choices, we think it’s better to return to our roots.” [Emphasis mine]
I laughed so hard when I saw this stupid boar’s comment about refusing to take “applicants of lesser quality,” I nearly had tears in my eyes. Apparently, Cockroach McGough is not aware that her commode accepts 71 percent of its applicants! Hell, starving humans are more selective in what they choose to eat.
According to Law School Numbers, the median LSAT score of enrolled students was 146, while the median UGPA stood at an astounding 2.94! Hell, you could submit a picture of your girlfriend’s feet on your Personal Statement, and underneath the photo scrawl “I like cookies!” in red crayon, and likely gain admission to this festering dung heap.
The Toilet’s Small Endowment: Based on page one, line 12, of the 2013 Form 990 for this pile of excrement, the school received $7,633,055 in total revenue. On line 18, you will notice that the swine had total expenses of $7,380,681 - for the tax year ending on June 30, 2013. Line 19 shows Revenue Less Expenses coming out to $252,694.
Go to line 20 of the first page. You will see that the trash pit had $29,110,621 in end of year total assets, offset by $880,744 in total liabilities. As such, the pile of rubbish had a mere endowment of $28,229,877 - as of June 30, 2013.
Of course, this didn’t stop the ABA-accredited toilet from paying its dean, Lucy McGough, a sum of $205,600 - in TOTAL COMPENSATION for this particular tax year. The wildebeest raked in $175,000 in base compensation plus $30,600 in “retirement and other deferred compensation.” That information is available on page 27 of this tax form.
On Campus Shooting by a Crazy Bastard Appalachian Sewer of Law Student - on January 16, 2002 - Resulted in Three Dead Victims: Please read this CNN article from January 17, 2002. The piece was titled "Suspect in law school shootings arraigned." Here is one of the key excerpts, from this report:
"Peter Odighizuwa, 43, did not enter a plea. A judge ordered a attorney appointed for him and set a court date for March 21.
Authorities said that Odighizuwa, who had flunked out of law school, opened fire with a .380 semiautomatic handgun just after 1 p.m. ET Wednesday.
One of those killed was the dean of Appalachian School of Law, L. Anthony Sutin, 42 - a former acting assistant U.S. attorney general.
Killed along with Sutin were another faculty member, professor Thomas Blackwell, 41, and a student, Angela Denise Dales, 33, according to state police." [Emphasis mine]
This shooting rampage occurred while the filthy, vile, decrepit commode was provisionally accredited by the American Bar Association cockroaches. Yet, those parasites subsequently proceeded to grant full accreditation to this dung heap! Apparently, the pieces of garbage wanted to make sure that the two academic parasites did not “die in vain.”
Conclusion: This is an important moment in the law school scam, as this could signal that this trash pile could close down. First, this is an independent $chool. It is not connected to a larger univer$ity or college. Second, the endowment is tiny, relative to that of most schools. In sum, this school needs a larger enrollment, in order to make more money. If it reduces the number of students/victims, then it will receive less revenue via the federally-backed student loan $y$tem. Appalachian Sewer of Law does not have much room for error, and the swine cannot sustain many years of low enrollment - especially when the jackals insist on outrageous compensation for their minimal “work.” In the end, the pigs are cutting their own throats. And we will be there to shove an apple in their mouth and barbecue their asses!
