Touro College Jacob B. Fuchsberg Law Center is So Easy to Get Into, the Pigs Sent Acceptance Letters to Those Who Never Even Applied
The NoTTTTice: On January 4, 2016, Staci Zaretsky posted an ATL entry that was entitled “Law School Sends Acceptance Letters To People Who Never Even Applied.” Take a look at this comical opening:
“It’s January, and you know what that means: it’s law school acceptance season. Each year at around this time, prospective law students anxiously wait to receive the important news on what their futures may hold. One law school, however, decided to speed up the painstaking process and give would-be law students even more reason to celebrate on December 31, because these lucky pre-law students were being given a chance to ring in the new year with a law school acceptance in hand.
There was just one problem — one huge problem.
Many who received acceptance letters on New Year’s Eve hadn’t even applied to the school. Oopsie! Can you guess which law school committed this embarrassing mistake?
The law school in question is none other than the Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, a school that was once selected by the Above the Law readership as the runaway winner of the dubious accolade of “Worst Law School in New York.” Here’s the congratulatory email that prospective law students received from Touro Law on New Year’s Eve at 6:36 p.m., entitled, “Message from Dean Salkin – Touro Law”:
“A Message from Dean Patricia Salkin
Congratulations on your acceptance and welcome to the profession. Touro Law is an exciting and welcoming place to study law with an active, vibrant community of passionate students and faculty working and learning on our unique “court house campus.” I hope you will take the time to learn about many of our cutting edge new projects and programs such as our nationally recognized disaster law clinic, our new clinics in criminal law and in immigration law, and our new institutes in aging and longevity law and land use and sustainable development law. In the last six months we have added almost 20 new endowed student scholarships as a demonstration of our continued commitment to providing an affordable and accessible quality legal education. I encourage you to experience our warm sense of community by visiting our state-of-the-art facility and by speaking with faculty, students and alumni. Please follow me on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to stay connected and to learn more about Touro Law in the coming weeks and months. I look forward to greeting you in August.” [Emphasis mine]
You KNOW that you are attending a certified trash pit, when your school is sending out acceptance letters and emails to those who did not even bother to apply! I understand that the initial message was sent out in error. However, TTTTouro Law CenTTTTer’s reputation is so low that it does not really surprise anyone with knowledge of the law school scam that it occurred at that pile of moist feces. In addition, legal employers do not give one damn if your students are "passionate" - nor do they care about "cutting edge" clinics.
Tuition: As you can see, full-time tuition for economic rape victims at TTTTouro College Jacob B. Fuch$berg Law Cesspool amounts to $45,630 – for the 2015-2016 academic year. For $ome rea$on, the pigs felt that listing this massive cost on a per semester basis would make the figure seem less daunting. Then again, this toilet relies on morons for its enrollment.
Average Law Student Indebtedness: US “News” &World Report lists the average law student indebtedness - for those unfortunate souls who comprise the TTTTouro Law Class of 2014 who incurred debt for law school - as $154,855. Fully 85% of this school’s 2014 cohort took on such excrementitious debt.
By the way, that total represents the 7th largest indebtedness sum from all individual schools that furnished this data to the dead magazine. That is extremely impressive, huh?!?! To be fair, roughly one dozen ABA-accredited diploma mills did not bother to supply this info to Bob Morse. Remember that this figure does not even include undergraduate debt – and it also does not take accrued interest into account, while the student is enrolled.
Ranking: Based on the sickening cost of admission to this pristine “institution of higher learning,” it must have an incredible reputation in the legal and academic community. Not so fast, Lemming. You see, USN&WR doesn’t only list schools by debt totals. It also rates them by their overall, supposed strength. According to that source, TTTTouro College Jacob B. Fuch$berg Law Cesspool is ranked as a FOURTH TIER TRASH CAN! In sum, this commode is the Cleveland Browns of U.S. “legal education.”
Conclusion: Yes, Cockroach Patricia Salkin was correct in her $elf-$erving assessment of the toilet as “providing an affordable and accessible quality legal education,” right?!?! Looking at the facts above, terms such as expensive, prohibitive, and garbage do not come to mind – perhaps for those with an IQ in the 70-80 range. Who the hell wouldn’t want to incur OUTRAGEOUS SUMS OF NON-DISCHARGEABLE debt for a TTTT law degree. In fact, this is the only current fourth tier dung heap located in the state of New York! Now, that’s how you spell pre$TTTTige. Good luck getting interviews at decent law firms, with a diploma from this cesspit. When you send in your pathetic resume and cover letter, you will make the hiring partners and their secretaries laugh until wet themselves.
