Second Tier Orange Vomit: University of Tennessee College of Law
Tuition: Tennessee residents attending this trash pit on a full-time basis will be charged $16,078 in tuition – for the 2013-2014 school year. The unfortunate souls who moved to Knoxville, from out of state, to attend this dung heap full-time will be ass-raped at the rate of $35,422 in tuition, for the current academic year.
Fees will add another $2,884 to the big-ass tab, for in-state law students. Non-residents will have $3,184 tacked onto their bill. It’s nice to see that public schools are looking out for their students’ best interests, right?!?!
Estimated Cost of Attendance: Based on this same page, the bitches and hags list a total estimate of $39,978 for Tennessee residents – and $57,722 for out of state, full-time law students. Keep in mind that ABA-accredited diploma mills only take nine-month expenses into account.
Seeing that actual law students will require costs over the full calendar year, we will prorate the following items: room & board; transportation; and miscellaneous expenses. Doing so, we reach the more accurate estimated COA for the current year as $44,996 for in-state students – and $63,740 for non-residents! Imagine the type of job you would need to land simply to justify the cost of attending this cesspool.
Ranking: As you can see, US “News” & World Report rates the Univer$iTTy of TTenne$$ee Commode of Law as the 72nd greatest, most fantastic and amazing law school in the whole damn country. Hell, it only shares this “distinct honor” with the following SIX toilets: American University; Chicago-Kent; Lewis & Clark College; LSU; New Mexico; and Tulsa. What a tremendous accomplishment, huh?!?!
Employment Placement Data: According to the sweltering trash pile’s Class of 2012 Summary Report, there were 155 members of this cohort. Only three graduates did not bother to furnish their status to the school. Of that amount, 125 responded that they were employed - in some capacity - within nine months of receiving their law degree. That is a mere 82.2% placement rate, i.e. 125/152.
Furthermore, on page three of this PDF, you will notice that 76 grads reported working in private law firms. Six desperate fools went into sole practices, while another 25 were hired by firms with 2-10 attorneys. In stark contrast, a total of seven JDs found employment in firms of 251-500 lawyers – while one member of this graduating class landed a spot in a firm of more than 500 attorneys. Do you still like your odds, Dumbass?!?!
Average Law Student Indebtedness: US “News” lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the Univer$iTTy of TTenne$$ee JD Class of 2013 who incurred debt for law school - as $72,887. Also, only 74 percent of this commode’s 2013 class took on such putrid 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.
Piggish Law Faculty Compensation: Let’s see how well the law school swine are making out – in juxtaposition to the broke, debt-strapped students and graduates– courtesy of the Tennessean. Enter Law under Department, and choose the Knoxville campus. There, you will note that Douglas Blaze made $225,000 in annual salary. In 2007-2008, the cockroach raked in $172,345. Joseph G. Cook, listed as a nine-month faculty member, rolled around in $183,083 in yearly compensation. Dean Hill Rivkin and his bulbous nose “earned” $192,000 as a supposed “Distinguished professor of law.”
Does anybody with a shred of honesty and integrity want to defend this sick $y$tem?!?! Again, the “professors” and banksters have no skin in the game. The debt is federally-backed. Those loans MUST be repaid. The student or graduate cannot hope to have the debt set aside in bankruptcy court. Even gambling addicts have this option. Yet, the academic pigs who perform such a pathetic amount of “work” are richly rewarded for consigning a generation into a lifetime of debt servitude.
Conclusion: Avoid this horrendous stench pit, as if your life depended on it, Lemming. There is NO NEED to incur an additional $85K-$130K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt, in order to get a chance at a decent job. By the way, genius: slightly more than one-quarter of the last UT Commode of Law graduating class did not take on another cent in student loans. Good luck competing against those boys and girls for jobs, dolt.
Those kids can simply rely on daddy to make a few phone calls to get them a nice-ass job. Can you say the same, Stupid?! If not, then what the hell are you doing in law school – well after the U.S. lawyer job market has gone down the sewer?!?! Are you the type of person who needs warning labels on the side of paint cans? If you want to piss away some money, pay me $10,000 to kick you in the face. At least then, you won’t ruin your future – and you will spare three years of your life.
