Third Tier Diarrhea Pit: University of Idaho College of Law
Tuition: In-state residents attending this rat’s nest full time will be charged $16,480 in tuition – for the 2014-2015 school year. Out of state, full-time law students will be bent over a coffee table – to the tune of $30,010, for 2014-2015. Can you name one well-known, practicing lawyer who has graduated from this dung heap?
Total Cost of Attendance: This same document also lists other expenses associated with attending this trash heap. The pigs estimate that room and board, books and supplies, transportation, and personal costs will add another $15,816 to the tab. This brings the supposed total to $32,296 for Idaho residents and $45,826 for nonresidents – for the current academic year. The transportation figure is suspect, as it is listed as $1,106. Apparently, the cockroaches think that everyone is going to ride a bike or take a bus to class – or otherwise not incur any maintenance or repair fees for their car.
Keep in mind that the bitches and hags base this on a nine-month calendar. Seeing that actual students will require things such as food, shelter and gas for the entire damn year, we will prorate the following items: room and board, transportation, miscellaneous and personal. Doing so, we reach a more accurate total COA of $35,926 for in-state lemmings – and $49,456 for out-of-state dolts. What a great bargain, right?!?!
Ranking: The Univer$iTTTy of Idaho Commode of Law is rated as the 118th greatest, most wondrous and amazing law school in the entire country – by US “News” & World Report. In fact, it only shares this distinction with two other ABA-accredited diploma mills – Albany and Quinnipiac. What a tremendous in$TTTiTTTuTTTion, huh?!?!
Employment Placement Statistics: Based on the Employment Summary Report for 2013 Graduates, there were a total of 117 members of this class. Of that total, one person did not supply their job status to the toilet. Seeing that 103 JDs from this cohort reported securing within nine months of earning their TTT degrees, the “placement” rate was 88.8 percent, i.e. 103/116.
Under Employment Type, you will notice that only 46 people from the class of 2013 landed jobs as lawyers! This figure includes the nine desperate souls who started solo practices. Hell, here is the full breakdown: nine solos; 34 in firms of 2-10 attorneys; two in offices of 11-25 lawyers; and one damn person hired by a law firm of 26-50 attorneys. Yes, that is truly impressive!
This school did not produce one single, solitary graduate who entered Biglaw – from the Class of 2013! Hell, not one person from this cohort ended up in a firm of larger than 50 lawyers. Let that sink in for a moment. Now, look at the average debt load these students took on, for their TTT degree.
Average Law Student Indebtedness: USN&WR lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the Univer$iTTTy of Idaho JD Class of 2013 who incurred debt for law school - as $98,008. Hell, 78% of this garbage pit’s 2013 cohort took on such noxious debt. Don’t forget that this amount does not even include undergraduate debt – and also does not take accrued interest into account, while the student is enrolled.
The Trash Pit’s Commitment to Diversity: Sometimes it is best to quote the swine verbatim. To wit:
The University of Idaho College of Law embraces diversity within the law school community and the legal profession. Our law school protects and fosters an inclusive and respectful learning environment for the discussion of legal principles, concepts, and practical skills. As a preparatory ground for future practitioners of the law, we adhere to the standards of legal professionalism within our classrooms, our offices, our hallways, our student organizations, our gathering places, and our activities. The calling to law is an important one with significant impacts on society, and as a law school we take that significance to the core of our purpose. The law school community values people of diverse cultures, races, ethnicities, genders, physical abilities, lifestyles, opinions, citizenship, philosophies, sexual orientations, religious backgrounds, ages, life experience, and identities. Diversity is an essential component of the University of Idaho College of Law and requires legal professionalism from all sectors of our community to provide an appropriately respectful learning environment.” [Emphasis mine]
Yes, be all things to all people. That’s the spirit! By the way, how exactly does diversity “require legal professionalism from all sectors of [the law school] community” in order to provide a respectful learning environment? Does Aryan Nations have a presence on campus or something?
In the end, this is merely a ploy to appeal to applicants of all backgrounds. After all, the cockroaches need asses in seats – in order to grab all that federal cash. This is not cutting edge stuff, people. As long you have a pulse – and a 147 LSAT score or 2.75 UGPA – these vile pigs will be happy to take your borrowed money!
Conclusion: While nearly 4/5 of the graduates took on serious debt for a TTT law degree from this pile of waste in 2013, fully 22 percent did not incur an additional dime in student loans. Good luck competing against them – and their influential fathers – for attorney jobs in the state. Lastly, look at the job prospects facing these young men and women. Ask yourself the following: Why in the hell should these students be essentially required to incur $110K-$145K in additional, NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt for such an employment outlook?
