Worthless-Ass Third Tier Horse Excrement: University of Wyoming College of Law
Tuition: In-state, full-time law students at this dung pit will be charged $13,842 in tuition – for the 2014-2015 school year. Full-time, nonresident lemmings will be hit with $27,192 in tuition, for 2014-2015. Who wouldn’t want to attend such a prestigious in$titution of “higher learning” at those prices?!?!
Total Cost of Attendance: According to this same document, books will add another $1,200 to the tab, while living expenses are all lumped together into one figure. The rodents at this public outhouse estimate this sum as $14,670. This brings the total amount as $29,712 for Wyoming residents and $43,062 for out-of-state law students.
Keep in mind that ABA-accredited piles of excrement base these costs on a school year. Seeing that actual law students will require expenses, we will prorate that number to reflect reality. Doing so, we reach the following, more accurate total COA numbers: $34,602 for in-state, full-time law students and $47,952 for nonresident, full time idiots. What a tremendous bargain, huh?!?!
Ranking: As you can see, the Univer$iTTTy of Wyoming Commode of Law is rated as the 129th greatest, most remarkable and amazing law school in the entire damn country – by US “News” & World Report! Hell, it only shares this distinction with the following five toilets: Drexel; Maine; North DakoTTTa; University of St. Thomas; and VermonTTT Law Sewer. Their mothers must be very proud of this “accomplishment.”
Published Employment Placement Statistics: Let’s take a look at the dung heap’s Class of 2013 School Report to the NALP, to see the job outlook for graduates. Apparently, there were only 76 members of this cohort. However, only 65 of these dolts landed employment within nine months of receiving their TTT law degree. This equates to a mere 85.5 percent “placement” rate.
Now, look under Employment Type. You will notice that only 33 members of this class reported working in private law firms. Here is the breakdown: two desperate solos, 18 grads employed in firms of 2-10 attorneys; four JDs hired by offices of 11-25 lawyers; two in firms of 51-100 lawyers; and seven supposedly working in offices of unknown size. Do you still like your ends of not ending up in toiletlaw or scratching out a living while representing dirt poor sons of bitches?!?!
Average Law Student Indebtedness: US “News” lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the Univer$iTTTy of Wyoming Law Class of 2013 who incurred debt for law school - as $67,733. In fact, 91% of this garbage pit’s 2013 cohort took on such toxic debt. While this figure does not seem that daunting, don’t forget that this amount does not even include undergraduate debt – and also does not take accrued interest into account, as the student is enrolled.
The Cesspool’s World-Renowned Rural Law CenTTTer: Check out this TTT description, courtesy of the commode:
“Rural Law Center
Thank you for visiting the University of Wyoming Rural Law Center. The Rural Law Center is meant to further three general missions:
• Provide service to rural communities and lawyers who practice law in rural areas.
• Help prepare students for rural practice and service.
• Facilitate scholarly research concerning the law relevant to rural areas and issues.” [Emphasis mine]
The entire state is a rural dung heap. But it’s nice that the taxpayers can support a foolish center focused on rural law. Hell, according to this source, Cheyenne, Wyoming has a total population of 59,466 – as of 2014. Yes, go ahead and open up your own legal practice in this thriving metropolis. You will be sure to make a financial killing! Plus, small time farmers and businessmen must be thrilled to have a center that will produce top notch academic research into their issues, right?!?!
Conclusion: Avoid this third tier commode at all costs. If you do not mind incurring an additional $80K-$110K in NON-DISCHARGEBLE debt – for a chance to practice law in destitute areas – then go ahead and sign on the dotted line, Dumbass. Hopefully, you don’t plan on getting married or starting a family anytime soon. Spouses tend to like when you make more than subsistence wages. Children appreciate having several meals and snacks a day, not to mention necessities such as shoes, clothing, heat, etc.
Also, good luck trying to land a mortgage with a putrid debt to income ratio. Again, women eventually want a home; it shows stability and security. Plus, these creatures don’t like pissing away large sums of money on rent. While you may be content to scratch your ass, pick your nose, and play video games all day long, you will not attract any decent partners with those habits. This is especially the case if you owe a total of $100K in student loans, while “raking in” $35K-$45K per year.
