Embarrassing Employment Placement and Starting Salary Statistics: This PDF states that 72.9% of the UMKC Law Class of 2010 was employed or seeking another degree, within nine months of graduation! This is based on an alleged 100 percent response rate. Keep in mind that this figure includes grads working in non-legal positions, i.e. insurance adjusters, school teachers, baristas, etc. Yes, this school is clearly worth paying $16,370.40 or $33,472.20 in yearly tuition, right?!?!


Ranking: Based on the prohibitive cost of attendance, this school must have an excellent reputation, correct?!?! If you feel that way, then you should leave the room for a minute. You will notice that Bob Morse and U.S. “News” & World Report rank the University of Cincinnati Commode of Law as the 61st greatest, most mesmerizing law school in the United States. The trash pile shares this distinction with the following five dung pits: Case Western Reserve University, Georgia State, Chicago-Kent, Seton Hall, and TTemple.

"Ranking: With such high costs, for a public institution, this school must certainly have one hell of a reputation in legal and academic circles, right?!?! Well, according to Bob Morse and U.S. “News” & World Report, the [Akron University School] of Law is the 127th greatest, most fantastic and amazing law school, in the United States. The [school] shares this pathetic rating with four other schools, i.e. [Creighton], Mercer, [Samford], and the University of Idaho.

Average Law Student Indebtedness: USN&WR lists the average law student indebtedness - for those members of the [University] of Akron’s JD Class of 2010 who incurred debt for law school - as $60,149. Furthermore, 84% of [school’s] 2010 class took on such corrosive debt. This amount does not take undergraduate debt into account."
