Postby TheodoreKGB » Mon Mar 30, 2015 3:24 pm

http://www.lawschooltransparency.com/re ... nted-Cost/

A breakdown for each school of:

-What percentage pays sticker
-What the median discount is
-What percentage receives median discount or more
-What CoA/monthly payment is with/without median discount

lol at Arizona Summit and John Marshall. What garbage.. Both should be shut down.

Also, Utah? Why? I get that's non-resident tuition, but that still seems wrong.

The University of Puerto Rico is certainly the cheapest school

Oh god. Arizona Summit @ $286,591 with only 22.7% getting over the median amount of $11,000

I feel sorry for these people :(

This is great work by LST.

It is jaw dropping to see the number of people blindly going into ~$250,000 debt with lower than a 50/50 shot at becoming an attorney. And lower than a 10% chance at becoming an attorney with a salary that can service that debt. Do people not research?

Wow. I wish they'd add a column for employment scores (though understandably that's different data). At Florida A&M, 83.7% pay full tuition (debt at repayment $227,832). Their employment score is 34.8%.

You can do this by making a custom report on the LST Score Reports, and then adding the non-discounted cost and Employment Score. A median discounted version isn't available yet, and neither is a % paying full price I don't think (frankly I can't remember). But I'll add those sorts of things and others this summer.

[[ETA: I guess you can already see NDC + ES here: http://www.lstscorereports.com/national/2013/ Same numbers, just non-discounted though]

You're right that this project serves a different purpose. It's not for helping students understand schools, but for broader policy points.
