Fourth Tier Liquid Waste: Loyola University New Orleans College of Law
Tuition: According to this document, full-time law students at this trash pit will be charged $21,000 per semester – for Fall 2014 and Spring 2015. Can you think of a better way to spend $42,000 annually?!?! This figure does not include fees.
General costs, IT, and law exam fees will add another $555 each semester. Publications will amount to another $20, and the SBA will pound you in the ass with a one-time charge of $250. A graduation expense will run you $275. This accounts for an extra $1,655 to your gigantic bill. Who wouldn’t want to make such an “investment”?!?! This is practically a steal!
Ranking: At these prohibitive prices, this school must have one hell of a reputation among the academic and legal communities, right?!?! If you believe that, then I suggest that you skip over to the next paragraph. Based on the current listing from US “News” & World Report, Loyola Univer$iTTTTy New Orlean$ Commode of Law is rated as a sweltering, odorous fourth tier pile of trash. Imagine how much tuition would be if this toilet was ranked in the top three tiers!
Employment Placement Statistics: Click on the link for the garbage heap’s Employment Summary for 2011 Graduates. Apparently, the bitches were unable or unwilling to provide more recent data. On page one of this PDF, you will notice that there were 231 total members of this TTTT class. According to this report, only 170 JDs from this cohort were employed – in any capacity – within nine months of receiving their diploma.
Four members of this class did not provide their job status to this cesspool. A total of 11 grads were pursuing a graduate degree full-time, while 42 poor souls were unemployed and seeking work. Another four JDs were jobless and not searching for employment. This represents a pathetic placement rate of 74.9 percent, i.e. 170/227. At least, the waste pile only hired two of its graduates in law school or university funded positions.
Now, scroll down to the next section, Employment Type. You will see that 92 grads went into private practice, including five desperate solos and 55 working in firms of 2-10 lawyers. Conversely, only three damn people from this class were hired by offices of 101-250 attorneys – and two went to work for firms of 251-500 lawyers. Do you still like your odds, moron?!?!
Average Law Student Indebtedness: On March 11, 2014, Matt Leichter posted an insightful entry entitled “Record 14 Law Schools Didn’t Report 2013 Graduate Debt to U.S. News.” Look at this portion:
“On average, about four law schools (excluding Widener University’s Harrisburg campus, the three Puerto Rico law schools, and Belmont because I don’t think it’s had any graduates yet) don’t report average graduate debt levels. The previous record was six in 2010. This year, as many as fourteen chose not to. Here’s the list and their last reported average graduate debt levels:
Loyola (La.) – $124,335” [Emphasis mine]
Keep in mind that this figure does not include debt from undergrad or other degree programs. Plus, it does not consider interest that accrues while the student is enrolled in law school.
JD Program Requirement: On this page, you will note the following under Requirements:
“Law and Poverty: Students may satisfy the Law and Poverty requirement by fulfilling any one of the following options: take the Law and Poverty course (LAW L781); take the Law and Poverty Seminar (LAW L782); take Street Law (LAW L833); Environmental Justice Seminar (LAW L834); represent low income people in the Clinical Seminar (LAW L897); or perform 50 hours or volunteer pro bono legal services to the poor in one academic year in a setting approved in advance by the coordinator of the pro bono program.” [Emphasis in original]
Yes, after shelling out insane sums of borrowed money to attend this steaming pile of moist excrement, who wouldn’t want to be forced to study “law and poverty”?!?! After all, when you take out ridiculous amounts of NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt, you will soon join the ranks of the abject poor. Frankly, skid row bums are better off than you financially – since they don’t owe anyone $100K and they can’t have their wages garnished if they default on their loans.
Perhaps, the swine can offer a course labeled “Student Debt and Poverty.” Maybe the whores can design a seminar discussing highly educated debt serfs. Then again, the rats don’t want the students to focus on how badly they are getting raped by the academic thieves.
Conclusion: Do not even consider attending this private, Catholic dung pile. First, the school is a FOURTH TIER TRASH PIT. Secondly, the pigs and cockroaches did not even supply their average indebtedness figures for the Class of 2013. If the commode is not willing to disclose this basic consumer info, then you know that the bastards are trying to hide something. News flash, Lemming: you WILL NOT BE SERVED WELL by incurring an additional $145K-$175K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt, for a TTTT law degree!
Furthermore, the rodents also failed to furnish Employment Placement data for the Class of 2012. That info was supplied to NALP more than one year ago! You wouldn’t purchase a used car if the dealer refused to give you vital consumer info. If you would not make such allowances for this type of transaction – which you can walk away from later – then why in the hell would you do so for such a serious financial decision that WILL affect you for the rest of your life?!?!
