Cockroach Peter Alexander Scurries Away from the Festering Dung Pile Known as Indiana Tech Law School
Excellent News!: On May 24, 2014, the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette published a piece entitled “Indiana Tech’s law dean leaves; professor fills in.” Take a look at this opening:
“Less than a year after opening its doors, Indiana Tech’s law school lost its dean.
On Friday afternoon, Indiana Tech announced that law school Dean Peter Alexander, also a vice president at the university, stepped down Wednesday.
According to a news release, Alexander said he achieved the goals he had established for the law school and had a desire to pursue other employment opportunities.
The law school opened in September.” [Emphasis mine]
Yes, Cockroach Peter Alexander accomplished some wondrous goals, huh?!?! This school attracted less than 30 students to its inaugural class. To be more precise, only 69 people applied to this dump. The toilet accepted 51 of those applicants, and a total of 28 matriculated.
Now, scroll down to this hilarious conclusion:
“Indiana Tech announced andré douglas pond cummings, who does not use capital letters in his name, will serve as the interim dean at the school.
Cummings is the associate dean for academic affairs and a professor of law at the fledgling law school.” [Emphasis mine]
Pond Scummings better figure out a way to start using capital letters in his name, since he will likely need to spruce up his resume soon. Employers typically don’t like applicants who are trying to be funny or unique.
Other Coverage: The Law School Truth Center blog featured a brilliant post labeled “Good Things Happening to Good People: Charleston Profiteers and Indiana Tech's Newest Leader” – on May 26, 2014. Check out this gem:
"In bittersweet news, Dean Peter Alexander suddenly resigned from Indiana Tech on the Friday before a holiday weekend. Dean Alexander's tenure is to be commended. Although naysayers said a law school in Fort Wayne would not work, Dean Alexander kept it going strong for a year. In a time when most law schools were cutting back on enrollment, Indiana Tech went up +28 students or so. And of course, let us not forget that Dean Alexander went head-to-head with the ignominious Paul Campos.
We wish him well in whatever BigLaw partner, elite foundation chair, judgeship, or other employment capacity to which he is moving.” [Emphasis mine]
Peter Alexander left one hell of a legacy during his short time at Indiana TTTTTTech Law Sewer! Imagine the condition that the school would be in today, if he hadn’t achieved his goals for the commode. Later on, LSTC drops this knowledge:
“Andre Douglas Pond Cummings, d/b/a andre douglas pond cummings, has risen from being a leading scholar in hip-hop and the law and serving youth in the Chicago ghetto to being a prestigious law dean in Fort Wayne, Indiana.”
Yes, the trash pit is in excellent hands, right?!?! After all, what unranked, unaccredited pile of garbage wouldn’t benefit from having a middle-aged white guy who wears sneakers and listens to hip hop as dean?! Hell, next year’s enrollment may even top 30 students – if the university doesn’t shut down the law school, of course.
Charles Cooper posted a great OTLSS piece, on May 25, 2014, which was entitled “Patient Zero – Indiana Tech Law School.” Review the following portion:
“Reading between the lines, it would appear Dean Alexander was given the choice of resignation or dismissal. Why? One can only speculate at this point in time, but my money is on the fact that this expensive failure of a law school has not only cost Indiana Tech a huge amount of money (and will continue to cost Indiana Tech a huge amount of money in the future), but has turned Indiana Tech from a once-respected regional college into the poster child of academic stupidity and greed. Enrollment targets have been hopelessly missed, the money promised is not appearing, and Indiana Tech is left with egg (or worse) on its face. Way to ruin an otherwise reasonable university, although perhaps those in the administration will finally taste what it's like to have their futures wiped out due to law school.” [Emphasis mine]
On May 26, 2014 at 7:32 am, a commenter - using the handle “Camilla Highwater” - pointed out that “[the pigs have] eradicated all mention of [Cockroach] Alexander in great haste.
It’s as if the academic rodent never existed. Remember this, people: “Higher education” is ALL ABOUT THE MONEY. The academic thieves are merely interested in getting fat off of federally-backed student loans. They DO NOT GIVE ONE GODDAMN about their students’ outcomes. Since Alexander could not entice more idiots to his school, he was drop-kicked in the ass by his fellow “educators.”
Conclusion: You greedy swine at the Indiana Institute of Technology have no one to blame but yourselves. Frankly, you should have done your research and performed some due diligence, before making this rotten financial decision. Perhaps, you should move to Nebraska in order to find a job – although you bastards would rather die than engage in actual work . Hell, essentially everyone who knew about the glutted U.S. lawyer job market told you idiots that this was a horrible idea. What’s next, morons? Are you planning on opening a VHS rental store, or starting a TV repair program?!?!
