First Tier Waste Bin: University of Washington School of Law
Tuition: In-state students attending this public toilet full-time will be charged $30,891 in tuition, for the 2013-2014 school year. Non-resident, full-time victims were bent over a coffee table, at the rate of $43,932 – for 2013-2014. Yes, state schools are so affordable, right?!?!
Estimated Cost of Attendance: On this same document, the pigs claim that other budget items will amount to another $18,843 in expenses. As such, the total COA for Washington residents will reach $49,734, whereas out-of-state students will be slammed with $62,775 in total costs. What a tremendous bargain!
However, ABA-accredited trash pits base their living expenses on a nine-month academic calender. Actual law students will require costs over twelve months, correct? We will pro-rate the following items, in order to reflect reality: room and board; personal expenses; and transportation. Doing so, we reach the following, more accurate estimates: $55,613 for in-state, full-time students and $68,654 for full-time, non-resident lemmings. Who wouldn’t want to attend this toilet, at this price tag?!?!
Ranking: As you can see, US “News” & World Report rates the Univer$ity of Wa$hington Sewer of Law as the 24th greatest, most spectacular and amazing law school in the United States. Hell, it only shares that honor with one other law school, i.e. the College of William and Mary.
Employment Placement Statistics: Let’s review the Employment Summary for 2013 graduates at the University of Washington Sewer of Law. You will note that there were a total of 183 members of this cohort. The school supposedly has the status of everyone in the class. Of that figure, 131 were in positions where bar passage was required. Also, 22 men and women were unemployed after nine months of receiving their first tier law degree. That represents a placement rate of 88.5 percent.
At least the bitches and hags did not artificially inflate their placement figures by putting grads in law school or university funded jobs. Although, only 73 members of the 2013 class landed positions in private law firms! That means that these victims had less than a 40% chance of finding such work – and that includes the six desperate solo practitioners and the 17 who were hired in firms of 2-10 attorneys. This also takes connected kids into account – and their grades or work ethic don’t mean much.
Average Law Student Indebtedness: US “News” lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the University of Washington JD Class of 2013 who incurred debt for law school - as $100,867. In fact, a mere 79 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.
The Commode’s Commitment to “Public Service”: In the swine’s own words:
“Public service is a core value of the UW School of Law. A key pillar of the law school’s mission to be Leaders for the Global Common Good is the commitment to Generous Public Service.
We realize our commitment to Generous Public Service in many ways. To fulfill the Juris Doctor requirement, every student performs 60 hours of public service legal work. The public service requirement provides them with the opportunity to witness the importance of public service and thereby deepens their commitment to justice and the rule of law.”
This is actually one of the hallmarks of a TTT or fourth tier trash pit. By the way, if you want to do some public service, go serve food to bums in a soup kitchen – or volunteer to read to disabled children. Hell, even the people – especially the lazy pigs in management - who get paid to do such work often don’t care about their clients. They simply need warm bodies to “serve,” in order to justify their salaries.
Conclusion: This is a trap school that will not help your career prospects – especially if you are not from the state of Washington. Remember, more than one-fifth of the 2013 graduating class did not take on an additional dime of student debt. That might just be a clue that these are the same people who can rely on daddy to make a few phone calls, in order to land them a good job. In other words, their grades and class rank don’t matter, dolt. So, go out there and commit yourself to finishing in the top ten percent of your cohort. Don’t forget that you will also be competing against the occasional female lawyer with great legs and firm breasts – for the relative few openings. Good luck with that, sucker.
Again, if you want to engage in public service, go volunteer a few hours a week for a worthy cause – while you remain at a real job, i.e. one that pays the bills and provides you with some leisure time. You simply DO NOT NEED to incur an additional $110K-$160K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt to do good deeds, moron. Would you spend $20K on a big-ass diamond ring to marry some plain Jane, merely because she has high arches or freckles on her shoulders?!?! If not, then don’t even consider pissing away three years of your life – and going through financial hell – for a school that prides itself on its false commitment to “social justice.”
