Third Tier Cow Patty: University of North Dakota School of Law
Tuition: In order to find the rate, you need to scroll down to Law School Tuition – since the trash pit lists all “professional” and undergraduate programs together. Nothing else quite says “elite,” huh?! In-state students are being charged $313.54 per credit hour. This equates to $9,406.20, for the 2014-2015 school year. Non-residents are being slapped with $743.06 for each unit, or $22,291.80 for 2014-2015. Who says that public schools are affordable?!?!
Total Cost of Attendance: The garbage heap lists additional costs as follows: $1,000 for books and supplies; $4,800 for personal; and $8,600 for room and board. This adds another $14,400 to the tab. This brings the total for North Dakota residents to $23,806.20, whereas the figure is $36,961.80 for out-of-state students.
Keep in mind that ABA-accredited diploma mills consider these expenses on a school-year basis. As such, we need to prorate personal expenses as well as room and board. After all, actual students will require costs over the entire twelve month period. Doing so, we reach the following, more accurate, total COA amounts: $28,273.20 for in-state suckers and $41,158.80 for non-resident idiots. Yes, what a fantastic bargain, huh?!?!
Ranking: According to US “News” & World Report, the UniversiTTTy of NorTTTh DakoTTTa Sewer of Law is rated as the 129th greatest, most remarkable and illustrious law school in the entire damn country. What a tremendous accomplish! Hell, it only shares this distinction with the following five toilets: Drexel; Maine; University of St. Thomas; Wyoming; and VermonTTT.
Published Employment Placement Figures: Head to this page, and scroll down to the area labeled ABA Employment Outcomes. Select the data for the commode’s Class of 2013. For $ome rea$on, the bitches and hags at this dung pit did not make this info easy to find. Apparently, they don’t want potential applicants to quickly access and view these reports.
Based on the ABA Employment Summary for 2013 Graduates, there were 74 members of this cohort. Of this total, only 46 found jobs where bar passage was required. Overall, 61 JDs reported being employed within nine months of graduation. Two people did not furnish their status to the cesspool. This translates to a “placement” rate of 84.7 percent, i.e. 61/72.
Two grads were hired in law school or university funded positions. By the way, the “generous” bastards at this dung heap only hired both as part-time workers. Yes, they are really looking out for their students and JDs, right?!?!
Under Employment Type, you will notice some revealing data. Only 25 members of this class landed positions in law firms – of any size! Hell, 15 of these men and women went to work for offices of 2-10 attorneys, while nine were hired by firms of 11-25 lawyers. In fact, only one damn graduate was employed by an office with 101-250 attorneys. Do you still like your odds, lemming?!?! Maybe you feel that YOU will be the single member of the entire group who will attain this job.
Average Law Student Indebtedness: US “News” lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the UniversiTTTy of SouTTTh Dakota Law Class of 2013 who incurred debt for law school - as $66,763. Fully 84% of this waste site’s 2013 cohort took on such foul debt. Remember that this figure does not include undergraduate debt – and also does not take accrued interest into account, while the student is enrolled.
The Trash Pit’s “Commitment to Diversity”: In the pigs’ own words:
“Diversity Mission Statement
The University of North Dakota School of Law is committed to the principle of equal opportunity in legal education for all persons. Further, the School recognizes the educational richness that results from including human experience from diverse perspectives. A law school community that welcomes, promotes, and respects diverse viewpoints enhances the quality of educational experiences for all those within that community, and enhances the legal profession and communities outside of the law school by preparing students to be more culturally respectful, professionally competent, and civically responsible leaders. The University of North Dakota School of Law is therefore committed to achieving a diverse law school community in terms of race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, marital status, and socioeconomic status[.]” [Emphasis mine]
Evidently, this was passed by the faculty on December 6, 2002. How progressive of them. This must be a forward-thinking in$TTTiTTTuTTTion! Then again, the rodents don't mind who they admit into the building - as long as they are able to pay the tuition bill.
Conclusion: Avoid this festering pile of dung, and don’t look back. Do you think that non-law employers are going to be impressed with your TTT law degree from this pile of moist manure?!?! Also, you may feel that this school is a good deal for the student. However, you cannot forget that interest compounds on this amount, while you are pissing away three years of your life. Plus, only one person from the entire Univer$iTTTy of NorTTTh DakoTTTa JD Class of 2013 landed a decent-paying law firm job. If you like to gamble, then you are MUCH better off hitting some of the Indian casinos in the region.
