Fourth Tier Corroded Waste: California Western School of Law
Tuition: The pigs list tuition on a per semester basis. Plus, the bitches and hags do not list the rate for the current school year, on this page. However, full-time students at this dung heap were slapped with $44,700 in tuition – for the 2013-2014 academic year. Part-time victims were “only” charged $31,300 in tuition, for 2013-2014.
Total Estimated Cost of Attendance: On this page, the toilet lists full-time tuition for 2014-2015 as $45,800. Those attending on a part-time basis will only pay $32,000 this school year. The jackals estimate that other costs will add up to $24,128. As such, the total COA for full-time students is $69,928.
Keep in mind that the bitches and hags at ABA-accredited diploma mills base living expenses off a nine month academic calendar. In fact, the rodents at California We$TTTTern Sewer of Law explicitly state that their estimate is “per 8-month academic year.” Seeing that actual students will require costs over the full year, we will prorate the following items: room and board; transportation; and miscellaneous. Doing so, we reach a more accurate, estimated COA of $81,267 – for one damn year of law school at this commode! We are talking about a single year at a fourth tier garbage can.
Ranking: Based on these ridiculous costs listed above, one would expect this school to have an excellent reputation, correct?!?! According to US “News” & World Report, California We$TTTTern Sewer of Law is a FOURTH TIER TRASH PIT! No one cares if you spent three years in sunny San Diego, if you cannot find a decent job afterward.
Published Employment Placement Figures: On this page, head to the section for Class of 2013. Click on the link for the ABA Summary Report for this unfortunate group. According to the Employment Summary for 2013 graduates of this dump, there were 281 members of this TTTT cohort. Yes, the school really looks out for their students, right?!?!
Of this total, 162 were employed – in some capacity – within nine months of graduation. The festering stink pit states that job status was known for everyone in this class. This translates to a “placement” rate of 57.65 percent. You read that correctly, people. Fully 100 members of this cohort were unemployed and seeking, while 14 men and women were out of work but not looking. Four souls were pursuing another graduate degree full time, and one person had their start date deferred.
When you dig a little deeper, you quickly realize that the numbers are even more pathetic. For instance, of the 123 grads employed in jobs requiring bar passage, only 99 are in long-term, full-time positions. Eleven are working full-time in part-time positions, whereas three JDs are in part-time, long-term posts and 10 more are in garbage jobs that are short-term and part-time.
In fact, overall only 124 graduates from the California Western “School” of Law found long-term, full-time employment within nine months of receiving their law degrees. This equals 44.1% of the entire class. Who wouldn’t want to piss away their future, i.e. accumulate ludicrous amounts of NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt, for such outcomes?!?!
Under Employment Type, you will notice that 90 JDs from this group found jobs in law firms. Of that figure, 11 were desperate solos and another 69 went to work for offices of 2-10 attorneys. In stark contrast, one damn person was employed by a firm with 101-250 lawyers - and one more was hired by an office with more than 500 attorneys. Hell, two graduates from the Class of 2013 landed federal court clerkships. Apparently, the American Bar Association cockroaches are not too embarrassed to accredit this piece of trash.
Average Law Student Indebtedness: USN&WR lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the California We$TTTTern JD Class of 2013 who incurred debt for law school - as $157,748. To put this into perspective for you lemmings, this is the FOURTH HIGHEST debt total on the chart. Plus, this figure seems low, when you take the annual cost of attendance into account. In addition, fully 90 percent of this vile dung heap’s 2013 cohort took on such toxic debt. Remember that this figure does not include undergraduate debt – and also does not take accrued interest into account, while the student is enrolled.
Conclusion: Do not even consider attending this atrocious pile of filthy excrement. If you are still contemplating this school, then ask yourself the following: How will you be served by incurring an additional $170K-$240K in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt for a TTTT law degree – while looking for legal employment in the SECOND MOST GLUTTED lawyer job market in the entire country? Don't forget that the published “placement” rate for the toilet’s Class of 2013 was 57.65% - and that includes legal, non-law, part-time, full-time, short term and long term jobs.
If you are enrolled in this commode, then you deserve your fate. I do not excuse the academic thieves for their conduct. However, you know the odds when you attend a fourth tier sewage pit. Do not complain later that you were scammed by the law school pigs. The message has been out for years, dumbass. At this point in time, only those who are wealthy, extremely connected or privileged should go to law school. Everyone else is playing roulette – with their lives.
