South Texas Commode of Law Changes Its Name and School Colors, and Upsets University of Houston Law Cesspool
A Turd by Any Other Name: The dung pit has provided a page regarding Frequently Asked Questions. Here is one sample:
“Why is the school changing its name?
As Houston’s oldest law school, we have a nearly 100-year history and tradition of success in legal education. As we honor our past, it is important that we continue to evolve to meet the needs of current and future students. By transforming our brand, we will bring increased awareness to the law school’s distinctive location in downtown Houston and better represent the law school’s diversity and global impact, thereby bolstering our regional and national profile.”
[Read: Our school is a perennial FOURTH TIER PILE OF DOG EXCREMENT, and we’re hoping that a name change will make you forget our sordid, pathetic-ass reputation. Plus, it's easier than actually improving our garbage product. For $ome rea$on, we did not address the change in color scheme.]
Media Coverage: On June 23, 2016, Kathryn Rubino posted an ATL piece entitled “Law School’s Name Change Sparks Ire, Potential Lawsuit.” Look at this opening:
“Just yesterday we told you about South Texas College of Law’s decision to change its name to Houston College of Law. The only problem? A little less than four miles away there is already a University of Houston Law Center, and they share the same red school color.
Tipsters and folks on social media had an immediate reaction, nearly all of it negative. Changing your school’s name after 93 years is bound to be controversial, especially when there is a good chance the school could be confused with one significantly ahead of it in the U.S. News and World Report Rankings.” [Emphasis mine]
Yes, what a coincidence, huh?!?! Maybe it’s one of those pesky, beneficial “errors” that the law school pigs regularly commit. Later on, the author continued:
“And now, the University of Houston Law Center is weighing in on the issue. They are not pleased. From Dean Leonard Baynes:
It has come to the University of Houston’s attention that South Texas College of Law has announced that it is changing its name to Houston College of Law. The University of Houston Law Center has an established history of nearly 70 years in the City of Houston. The University of Houston is concerned about the significant confusion this creates in the marketplace and will take any and all appropriate legal actions to protect the interests of our institution, our brand and our standing in the communities we serve.
They are definitely keeping the door open for a lawsuit down the road, and the Dean has promised to protect the “integrity and interests” of the school. Dealing with potential legal threats the day after they announced their name change is probably not what the administration at the erstwhile South Texas College of Law wanted, but here we are.” [Emphasis mine]
It’s fun to see selfish academic swine go after each other. After all, they are competing for simpletons to enroll. Then again, at least the University of Houston's law students can walk and chew gum at the same time.
The Univer$iTTy of Hou$TTon Law CenTTer is rated as the 50th greatest, most remarkable and amazing law school in the entire damn country – by US “News” & World Report. In fact, it “only” shares that distinction with four other ABA-accredited diploma mills. Frankly, that is not impressive. However, it beats the hell out of the following:
Yes, you read that correctly! South Texas Commode of Law is ranked as a FOURTH TIER TRASH PIT, by USN&WR! What a TTTTremendou$ accompli$hmenTTTT.
In-state law students attending the University of Houston Law Cesspool on a full-time law students will face a tuition bill of $30,401 – for the 2016-2017 academic year. Non-resident, full-time victims will take it up the ass, to the tune of $45,219. What a bargain!
In contrast, Fourth Tier Houston Commode of Law charges everyone the same amount – since it is a private, free-standing in$TTTTiTTTTuTTTTion of “higher learning.” Those attending this dump were charged $29,490 in tuition, for the 2015-2016 school year. Perhaps, the thieves will need to increase their rates, if they want to be confused with the 50th “best” law school in the United States.
Conclusion: As the Law School Truth Center blog noted, “Maybe they should have called it Houston Summit instead?” This would cause even more cross-branding scenarios and po$$ibilitie$, as the home arena of the Houston Rockets used to be The Summit. This was in the era before essentially all pro sports stadiums and arenas featured idiotic corporate names.
Wait, there’s more. Retired women’s college basketball coach Pat Summitt died on June 28, 2016. Since the Rockets won two NBA titles during their Summit days and Pat Summitt won eight NCAA championships as head coach, such a name change might cause increasingly dumber law school applicants to view the toilet formerly known as South Texas College of Law as the home of winners. Hell, the new color scheme even matches that of the Houston Rockets. Keep in mind that NBA teams will start selling ad space on game jerseys, starting in the 2017-2018 season. Do you see the possibilities yet, pigs?!?! This type of name change may even help the University of Houston Law Cesspool to drop this federal lawsuit, alleging trademark infringement. You’re welcome, bitches.
