New York Law School Cockroaches Lease Space to University of Rochester
The Sewer Rats Need More Money: On July 24, 2015, the NaTTTional Juri$TTT published a staff article entitled “NYLS leases space to Urochester.” Look at this opening:
“New York Law School has found use for its open space. The University of Rochester's Simon Business School will move from midtown Manhattan to the Tribeca campus this summer through a co-location agreement between the two professional schools.
New York Law School enrolled reached 1,923 in 2010, soon after it opened a new 235,000-square-foot building. However, since then its numbers have dropped. It had 968 students in 2014-2015.
The agreement with the University of Rochester is a multi-year arrangement that aims to form an innovative partnership to optimize resources and capitalize on the different schedules and programs of the two institutions.” [Emphasis mine]
Keep in mind that New York Law Sewer is a free-standing toilet, i.e. it does not have a parent university or college to help bail it out during rough stretches. It is extremely impressive that total enrollment has damn nearly been cut in half in the span of about four years. Then again, I’m sure the rodents “planned” to have smaller classes, right?!?!
TTThe TTT AnnouncemenTTT: Back on April 28, 2015, NYL$ issued a press release labeled “University of Rochester’s Simon Business School New York City Center to Co-locate at New York Law School.” Yes, it’s great to see that attorneys are so great at being concise in their language. Here is a partial description:
“The New York City location of the University of Rochester’s Simon Business School will move from midtown Manhattan to the Tribeca campus of New York Law [Sewer] (NYLS) this summer through a unique co-location agreement between the two professional schools, announced Joel Seligman, President of the University of Rochester, and Anthony W. Crowell, President and Dean of New York Law School.
The agreement between the two professional academic institutions is a creative, multi-year arrangement that aims to form an innovative partnership to optimize resources and capitalize on the different schedules and programs of the two institutions. The Simon Business School offers courses in New York City for 13-month part-time graduate programs designed for working professionals, with M.S. programs in finance, management, and health care management. Simon students attend classes primarily on weekends, while students of NYLS, which offers full- and part-time law degree programs and a two-year J.D. honors program, attend primarily during the week with some weekend options. The business school, which had been located in a commercial office building, will move its NYC administrative offices and academic course offerings to the NYLS facility. Students will be able to take advantage of the classrooms, library, meeting and event spaces, and other amenities of NYLS’s high-tech urban campus, located at 185 West Broadway (at Leonard Street). The move to Lower Manhattan, which is under review by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, will provide students with a comprehensive and unmatched learning environment, along with direct access to Wall Street, the City’s civic center, and tech corridor. This will be the only co-located law school and business school under one roof in New York City.
“Lower Manhattan is the epicenter both for business and law in the global economy. New York Law School’s Strategic Plan emphasized a priority of the school to develop strategic alliances that could provide students unprecedented opportunities in business or financial services. The co-location of NYLS and the Simon Business School’s NYC Center creates a unique opportunity to harness the synergies that exist between the two institutions. We look forward to welcoming the business school faculty, staff, and students to our campus and building a culture of community between our schools, while maintaining each individual institution’s identity,” said Anthony Crowell, President and Dean of New York Law School.” [Emphasis mine]
Take a moment to reflect on the following idiotic terms used in the release above: “innovative partnership,” “co-located,” “strategic plan,” “unprecedented opportunities,” “harness the synergies,” and “building a culture of community.” Hell, members of Congre$$ and their professional handlers don’t distort things to such a douche level.
Does anyone with a brain stem think that NYL$ is resorting to this measure, because they simply wanted to help out another “institution of higher learning”?!?! By the way, no one gives a damn if Lower Manhattan is the supposed epicenter for business and law? Decent law firms do not want to hire graduates of third tier schools.
Ranking: As you can see, US “News” & World Report rates New York Law Sewer as the co-127th greatest, most phenomenal and incredible law school in the entire United States! In fact, it “only” shares this distinct honor with the following SEVEN commodes: Chapman, Cleveland State “University,” Drexel, Quinnipiac, Akron, University of Idaho, and UMKC. Yes, what prestigious company, huh?!?!
Average Law Student Indebtedness: According to USN&WR, the average law student indebtedness for those members of the NYL$ Class of 2014 who incurred debt for law school was $166,622. Plus, 83% of this unfortunate cohort took on such toxic debt for their TTT law degree. This figure does not include debt from undergrad or other programs, nor does it take accrued interest into account.
Conclusion: In the final analysis, NYL$ seems to be stretched financially. The rodents are located in a pricey-ass section of expensive Manhattan. Yet, the students are enrolled in a firmly entrenched TTT. Biglaw firms will not hire the toilet’s graduates. The total number of students at New York Law Sewer has dropped SIGNIFICANTLY, since the pigs opened a new 235,000 square foot facility in 2010. Since tuition rates at this dung pit are so high, the cost of living is so damn high, and the odds of paying back the student loans are slim, this school apparently needs to make up for lost income. If you are still considering law school, moron, do not even contemplate this trash heap. You do not need to become financially ruined, in order to help keep this turd afloat.
