Cause for Celebration: Enrollment at New York Law School Diploma Mills Has Dropped by 23 Percent Since 2010!
Garbage Barges on Fire: On December 26, 2014, the New York Law Journal published a Karen Sloan and Andrew Keshner piece entitled “NY Law Schools Mirror Nationwide Drop in Enrollment.” Take a look at this opening:
“Law school enrollment fell for the fourth straight year in 2014, according to figures released earlier this month by the American Bar Association.
Nationwide, the number of first-year students who showed up on law campuses this fall declined by 4.4 percent compared with the previous year, which amounts to 1,751 fewer students.
That means new student enrollment is down by nearly 28 percent across the country since its historic peak in 2010, when many flocked to law school during the economic recession.
Taken as a group, New York's 15 law schools mirrored the national trend, although five individual schools more than held their own.
According to ABA, the number of first-year enrollees in all New York law schools fell 4.7 percent to 3,772 from 3,962.
New York enrollment has fallen approximately 23 percent since 2010.
Data from the Law School Admission Council had indicated that fewer people took the Law School Admission Test and applied to law school during the last admissions cycle. But the actual enrollment numbers will undoubtedly add fuel to existing concern over the economic future of law schools that already have seen drastic enrollment cuts.” [Emphasis mine]
You’re welcome, bitches! Did you cockroaches expect to KNOWINGLY financially ruin thousands of students – every damn year - without any repercussions?!?! Have fun enjoying smaller class sizes and resultant forced retirements and buyouts, pigs. In a just world, you parasites would be slow-roasted over a pit – with an apple shoved in your mouth and another one up your ass.
Later on, the authors noted the following:
“Touro's first year class size this year is 187, compared with the 206-student headcount a year earlier.
Anthony Crowell, New York Law School's dean, said when he came into the job in May 2012, he knew the school had to get smaller "to ensure better outcomes and get stronger."
"In the process of doing it, the market caught up to us," he said, later adding, "It's not easy when you have to adapt from a budgetary standpoint. We're using it as an opportunity to build the institution and adapt."
Albany Law School saw the sharpest year-to-year drop among state schools, some 34.2 percent.
Acting Dean Alicia Ouellette said in a statement that application numbers in the past several years have been "challenging." [Emphasis mine]
It’s great to see these cockroaches try to spin these huge-ass declines into a positive. Give it up already, thieving bastards. Sure you “planned” for your toilet’s enrollment to get smaller, Cockroach Anthony Crowell – and Salma Hayek just called and offered to come over, but I told her I was busy.
People have caught onto the law school scam, due to the concerted effort of scambloggers, mainstream news pieces, a few decent professors with character, and other critics of U.S. “legal education.” As a direct result of those efforts, fewer people are being raped by the law school swine.
Other Coverage: Paul Caron posted a blog entry labeled “New York Law Schools Suffer Large (21%) Enrollment Declines” – on January 4, 2015. Check out the portion below:
“Two law schools (Albany, New York Law School) have experienced >50% enrollment declines since 2011, and CUNY experienced a 40% decline. In all, 8 of the 15 New York law schools have experienced at least a 20% enrollment decline since 2011. The carnage is even greater if you exclude Columbia, Cornell, and NYU: the remaining 12 law schools experienced an 8.1% decline in since 2103, and a 26.2% decline since 2011.” [Emphasis mine]
This is real and tangible progress. To those of you who have informed others about this filthy, vile indu$try, thank you for contributing to this development. You have helped steer others away from financial hell. That is honorable and selfless. Of course, “law professors” and administrator scum cannot understand such a concept. In their sick minds, one should be happy to take on an additional $125K+ in NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt - for a chance to enter a GLUTTED field.
Conclusion: The law school pigs have fed on the flesh of lemmings for far too long. They have grown fat and happy at the expense of their students and taxpayers. In fact, these bitches and hags have not lost one wink of sleep over their role in ruining countless lives. After all, sacrifices must be made, right?!?! Especially, when those backbreaking losses are incurred by others!
