Brooklyn Law School Crooks Offer to Repay 15 Percent of Their Loot: Generosity/Desperation in Action
TT Smells of Desperation: On July 12, 2015, the New York Times published an Ileana Navarro piece entitled “Brooklyn Law School Offers a Safety Net for New Students.” Take a look at this opening:
“Shelley Friedman, 21, who recently started a two-year program at Brooklyn Law School, is not too concerned about how she will fare in the job market after she earns her degree — and not just because she won’t begin looking for work until she approaches graduation in May 2017. She is simply confident about her prospects.
But she also knows that — just in case — the school is prepared to provide her with a safety net of sorts.
Beginning with students entering this year — whether in two-, three- or four-year programs — Brooklyn Law School is offering to repay 15 percent of total tuition costs to those who have not found full-time jobs nine months after graduating. That, according to school officials, is how long it typically takes graduates to get such jobs and, if necessary, to obtain the requisite licenses.
“Knowing you have a little extra security is very comforting and helpful,” said Ms. Friedman, who is from Fair Lawn, N.J.
The introduction of the program, called Bridge to Success, comes as law school graduates across the country face increasing competition in a depressed job market that is only slowly recovering from the economic downturn.
“This builds on the overall approach that we’ve taken to be very student-centric, to listen to what students need,” said Nicholas W. Allard, dean of Brooklyn Law School. He said it was the school’s strong financial standing, including an endowment of $133 million as of May, that made the program possible.” [Emphasis mine]
This trash pit is offering two year law degrees, and now the pigs are offering to repay 15% of out of pocket, total tuition costs to those who have not found full-time employment within nine months of earning their Crooklyn diplomas. Notice how the bastards did not specify the type of jobs. Apparently, if you graduate from this certified dung heap, and land a full-time position at Allstate or as a car salesman within nine months of receiving your degree, then you do not qualify for partial repayment.
The TT AnnouncemenTT: On July 13, 2015, the Crooklyn cockroaches issued a press release labeled “Brooklyn Law Announces ‘Bridge to Success’ Program.” In the sewer rats’ own words:
“Brooklyn Law School (BLS) today announced the launch of Bridge to Success, a new program designed to support graduates who may take longer in their job search to find meaningful, full-time employment. Under the program, if graduates have not found jobs of their choice nine months after graduation, they will receive a lump sum payment of 15 percent of their total tuition costs paid while attending BLS. The program takes effect beginning with the entering class of 2015.
Bridge to Success builds on Brooklyn Law School's nationally recognized career preparation and job placement success and is a further enhancement to the school’s comprehensive plan to support graduates as they begin their careers. Bridge to Success serves as both a boost while graduates conduct their job search and as a safety net if the process takes longer than anticipated.
“Our students invest a lot of time, effort and money earning their law degrees; some students need more time and support than others to find that all-important first job to start a worthwhile career,” said Nicholas W. Allard, president and dean of Brooklyn Law School. “Bridge to Success is designed to ease the pressure for some students to settle for any job to pay for living expenses and pay off loans. We are determined to provide the counseling and financial support needed in some cases, to buy extra time, in order to land the job that fits a graduate’s talent and passion.” [Emphasis mine]
Whenever you hear an administrator or “law professor” talk about “passion,” you KNOW that their school is a trash heap. Save that sentiment or excitement for the bedroom. The legal "profession" is a garbage business, not a romantic notion of how things should be done.
Other Coverage: JDU user “napoleone” posted a comical thread, which was titled “Brooklyn Law will get you a job, or give you a partial refund!” – on July 12, 2015 at 10:19 pm. Accountholder “ibrslave” provided this brilliant response 39 minutes later:
“Ha, ha! A 15% refund is like pissing on a forest fire. Brooklyn can shamelessly look like they give a damn and keep 85% of the ungodly tuition from those suckers who cannot find a job 9 months after graduation. These graduates are doomed, period, with or without a token 15% refund.”
This is merely a PR move, designed to attract more lemmings – and to make outsiders believe that this as a benevolent institution. Would you celebrate a mugger as a hero, if he stole your car, watch, wallet or other property – and then later gave you 15% of what he took from you?!?! If not, then don’t treat the swine at Crooklyn Law any differently.
Conclusion: In the final analysis, Brooklyn Law Sewer is desperate for asses in seats. The place is a notorious, noxious stink pit that burns your nostrils from a distance. It is currently ranked as the co-78th greatest, most phenomenal and amazing law school in the entire damn country – by US “News” & World Report. Yet, the pigs will charge full-time law students $45,780 in tuition – for the 2015-2016 academic year.
According to the same publication, the average law student indebtedness for those members of the Crooklyn Law Class of 2014 who incurred debt for law school was $114,953. Since a good portion of that amount is due to living expenses, the commode will not repay 15 percent of the total figure. If you received a partial scholarship/tuition discount, the jackals will only pay back a fraction of the tuition costs to you. In other words, you will still be in financial hell. Does that strike you as a good deal, Dumbass?!?!
