Tuition also increased 5% from 08-09 to 09-10 academic years, and I found this from 04-05.

School of Law: The 2004-05 tuition for the juris doctor program will be $32,590 for first-year students, an increase of $1,850 over the current charge of $30,740. Second-year students will be charged $32,130, an increase of $1,390 over the current charge of $30,740. Third-year students will pay a tuition of $31,080 — an increase of $1,340 over the current charge of $29,740.


Given this data it is possible tuition could be as high as 48k for the 12-13 academic year. :shock:

ugh....these tuition increases are pretty ridiculous.....i had been thinking that 50k/yr was the threshold for law school tuition, until berkeley raised theirs to over 50k/yr for out of staters. other schools probably won't mind raising their over 50k/yr now.

On the bright side....Inflation will eventually help offset our tuition costs, and our grandchildren will look at us exactly like I look at my grandfather when he tells me his undergrad tuition was 100 dollars a semester.

If I don't get a job coming out of law school, I hope it is because of an economic downturn coupled with rapant inflation (see: Germany post WWI). Sure, I won't be employed and a sack of potatoes will cost $40, but paying off my student loans will be no problem. :D

Of course you always run the risk of having to become a subsistence farmer if the economy doesn't recover. :wink:

I'm about 50% certain that I'll attend. I've been offered a decent amount of $, the cost of living is cheaper than NYC, and its the highest ranked school in which I was admitted. But Im still not sure...I want to practice public interest in NYC or DC upon graduating. I'm also slightly older than most admitted students (i'm approaching 30) and I have absolutely no social ties to the midwest - I'm afraid I'd be lonely and depressed. I've also gotten mixed messages on what I should do when I've polled folks on this site. Maybe a visit will sway me.

Is anyone here applying to the TLP? I got an email yesterday regarding the program. Since you can apply during your first semester, and because you lose one of your scholarship semesters, and add an extra year abroad, I'm not applying now. But it is interesting.

Anyone applying/have a take on the value of the TLP?

Probably depends on the building. If you are 100% sure you are going to WUSTL, you can probably reserve something now at a few places. That being said, I doubt it's necessary at most buildings to do so this soon.


I should add... if you want something as close as possible to the university, it's probably best not to wait if you are sure. That is my uneducated guess.

St. Louis being a non-college town, you will be able to find something reasonably close (read 5 miles or so) probably at any time using craigslist or other apartment finder tools.

Monday.

I boarded the MetroLink, switched a little "School Days" over my earbuds, and sullenly stared out the window.

I should have been heading back west, but I took the eastbound train a couple of stops and disembarked near the river. I was in a cheap black suit, the cool river wind catching me worst near my ribs.

I was oblivious to anyone else. There were a couple of moms pushing strollers, and some homeless guy, I think. Someone in a suit tramping toward Wash Ave. But on a Monday afternoon in March, there's not much to see.

I sat on the steps near the arch and looked out to East Saint Louis, a barren and desolate plain with jagged cinder block structured puncturing the skyline.

And then I sighed.

It's not really the frequency of the rejections that get me. It's just the cumulative effect of them. It was just a small interview this morning, a one-hour affair at a six-person shop downtown, but every lead is a glimmer of hope, and every rejection piles up.

I'm half tempted to throw my portfolio, stuffed with a couple untouched copies of my Global note and my two-page resume, down the steps to the riverfront. Or maybe I should just tumble down to the river myself.

I sighed again.

Number nineteen, I recall saying, gloating to my friends back in undergrad. Number nineteen, I practically pinned that US News magazine to my dorm ceiling after I got the admissions letter. Number nineteen.

I don't even know how I made it back to the MetroLink from there. Intuition, I guess, and I was back on a westbound train.

But tomorrow might be different. Tomorrow, I have another interview. 2:30 pm, Chesterfield.

Or maybe every day will be like spring break. Cold. Gray. Nothing on my schedule.

And six-figures of debt looming.

I agree with the poster above. This is really good. I literally felt like I was in a first-person movie in my head during the whole piece.

Maybe it's better to a 3L than most people (as we can all so easily relate to it), but still very well written. If you have any creativity whatsoever, you should really consider trying to write a novel.

You get vacation time for a reason. They don't expect you to work 365 days a year (well, they probably do, but fuck them). Just take a few days around a weekend.

Tuesday.

There's little to do after an interview at some cookie-cutter office building in a place like Chesterfield. Except go to the mall.

So the mall it is, an Orange Julius in one hand, portfolio in the other, and me, feeling a little of the stink on the polyester of a suit worn two days in a row that desperately needs a trip to the cleaners.

Today was a little better. By that, I mean I wasn't rejected immediately after the interview. Instead, the guy with a combover and a fake fern in a corner of his office will probably have his diabetic secretary send me some vanilla boilerplate rejection in two weeks. And what's a little better today will be a little worse later.

The mall's filled with heavy-set moms in pricey sweatsuits chortling beside each other, extra large cups of Diet Coke jammed in the cupholders of their strollers rolling their sleeping kids. Disgusted, I drop my half-finished drink into the trash.

Yay, in two months, my mom and my dad and my little employed brother and my girlfriend will hand me a few Hallmark cards and offer to treat me to Ted Drews because I'm "a lawyer now." And the diploma will be a death sentence, the unlocking of my jail cell where I've been cooped for three years, and I'll start the slow procession toward inevitable bankruptcy.

I stand listless in front of an Aunt Annie's pretzel store front.

"Hiring."

I don't remember asking the manager-negress-manatee for an app, but now I've got one, and now I'm filling it out, and now I'm leaving off my WUSTL degree (anticipated), and now I'm back in my car.

No interviews tomorrow. I'll probably just cold call.

Dear Reader,

I write that this may chronicle the last memories of the apocalypse occurring here in the Lou. The story in today's P-D about a roving band of marauders (SLUH->double WUSTL, I suspect) breaking up Schlafly's last night led me to believe the situation is much more dire than I originally anticipate. (I've attached a clipping here, dear reader.)

Career Services just sent out an e-mail promising pizza and a discussion of future employment options to "concerned 2Ls." I'm not sure how much longer I can hold out, but I will do my best.

Best,

Yr. Humble Svt.

Dear Reader,

The situation is grim. In my 2L gunner course this morning (Federal Evidence of Courts in Advanced Civil Procedure or some shit), the feminist chick teaching jokes that with 1/3 of the class absent, "There must be a lot of callbacks!" This from the same cunt who makes weekly jokes about how she drives a "non curat LEXUS." Yeah, A-B is funding your whorish lifestyle.

Really, "callbacks" (if one can call a second round of screening interviews near Wash Ave. a "callback") ended a month ago, but don't tell the clueless professors that. They think that the law market is just dandy.

My own bitterness is just a coping mechanism, I guess. The guy next to me was licking envelopes. He told me that every day since August 1, he'd send a copy of his resume to Kirkland and Sidley. "My grandpa lived in Chicago when he was 7, and I've always dreamed about practicing there," he muttered, rocking forward on his chair as he sealed a letter dated "November 2." "One of these will click with them, I know it."

I don't know where the rest of the class was. Some probably drunk; others shopping for resume paper. But those who *did* show up looked like the 1L gunners all over again. The front row was crowded; hands shot in the air at every raised inflection in the prof's voice; and highlighters clacked and rolled down the tables.

The lunch meeting will be dangerous, I fear.

Best,

Yr. Humble Svt.

Dear Reader,

A group huddled quietly in the library, apparently tossing out the names of schools that they'd turned down for the massive bribes from WUSTL. Names included Indiana, Illinois, Notre Dame. I think a guy dropped "Georgetown," but he must have meant PT, or else he was lying.

Then I saw a girl Xeroxing her Duke waitlist letter. "I'm going to attach this to my resumes," she nodded assuredly between copies 184 and 185. "This will show them that I had excellent potential as a law school applicant."

The worst, though, might have been one guy who looked, well, happy. *Extremely* happy. Like he'd just won the lottery. A bit taken aback, I tapped his shoulder and asked why he was smiling.

"I'll be externing-slash-clerking," he said, without a hint of irony at the "slash," "for a GREAT judge in Clayton this summer." I asked if it was state court. "Yes," he said, but lowered his voice. "You'd be surprised to see the serious cases that this judge gets. There are some fascinating torts cases involving Monsanto, and I'm going to be on the front lines." He grinned again. "I love our career services!"

Oh, God. Here was a victim. In a panic, I rushed blindly to the washroom. Running hot water, I hastily pumped soap over my hands and lathered heavily. I splashed my face with cool water, and looked up in the mirror.

I would not be next. Surely, I could avoid this.

Best,

Yr. Humble Svt.

Dear Reader,

306 was a house of horror. But, dear reader, I must be faithful to my cause, and chronicle to you the terrible sights I witnessed.

It was like looking into the end of the world. I saw groups of zombie-eyed 2Ls sluggishly traipse through the doors, tripping over notebook power cords and plowing through heaps of well-tabbed supplements. Imo's boxes littered the floor, some faces smeared with provel and blood-curdling cries of "NOT ANOTHER BRYAN CAVE POWER POINT!"

Up front was one of the recent, desperate, CDC-gowned career services minions, sent to euthanize more than to employ at this point. She desperately spoke over the din of three 2Ls huddled in a corner, each holding an Imo's box over their heads and chanting Hail Marys. She got out, "There are *many* *excellent* opportunities outside of 'big law,'" but then there was a clamor.

"GIVE US JUST ONE SLOT AT COVINGTON," a baritone 2L shouted, to the roar of approval and applause. She glanced nervously at her exit routes.

"Please," she begged, "there *are* jobs out there, just ask Kurt." At this, she beckoned another smiling, cheerful 2L, eyes glazed over in delight, sporting a thick stack of glossy "What Can I Do At As A Legal Intern At St. Louis County Parks & Rec?"

"THOSE ARE ONE-L HANDOUTS," a girl shrieked, and others fled the classroom. Many trampled for the doors, shoving anxiously to escape.

I am sad to report, dear reader, that five could not escape; they took the handouts, and succumbed.

As I pushed my way out, I met a four 2Ls on law review. One looked at me with scorn when I asked what they planned on doing. "The only thing we can," he remarked. "Get a jeep. Drive to Kansas City as fast as we can. I hear that there are a couple of offers still outstanding at Husch. It's the only way to escape."

I wished them well as they zipped their computer bags with the last of their ivory resumes and slipped out a back door.

I fear I may not have much longer, dear reader. But I shall remain faithful as long as I can.

Best,

Yr. Humble Svt.

Dear Reader,

I witnessed an unfortunate stand-off between a group of nervous 2Ls, stomping in front of the law school, and a group of administrators laughing on their way back from lunch at the Knight Center. (One still had a bit of vanilla soft-serve ice cream on his upper lip.)

There was a tense moment, the 2Ls, Global Studies memberships in one hand, stepped forward to confront the wide-eyed administrators.

"Give us a job," one student barked. "You bribed us to come here. Now get us the hell out of here!"

Then that beady-eyed chief of the administrators stepped forward, cleared his throat, and began, "I know the chatblogs have whipped you into a frenzy..."

"THERE'S NO SUCH THING!" an exasperated girl cried, hurling a journal to his feet.

"Look, I'm sure I can arrange for a judge in Madison County to give you a call? Eh? And that's Il-li-noi-ois," he drawled in a slight-sing song. "And Illinois is where Chi-ca-go iiiis..." he lingered.

At this, dear reader, I am afraid I can't tell what happened next. Who started it, really. Two administrators lurched at the crowd, pressing swiftly through a gap for the door. Three 2Ls lunged forward, seeking to tackle someone, anyone. But one 2L was swayed by the honeyed word "Chicago," and hastily tripped his fellow student, shouting happily, "YES! I WOULD LOVE TO INTERN IN MADISON COUNTY THIS SUMMER! YES, YES, A THOUSAND TIMES YES!"

I turned away, the sight too grim to behold. But at this, I saw a pink flier on the door to A-B, partially obscured by another flier with some photo of Warren Buffet and downtown Omaha. It was torn, but it said, "Skad... Interview slots st... Visit the Career Ser..."

With hope, dear reader, I shall investigate. It is faded; it may prove fruitless; but, nevertheless, I feel that there may be an end to this journey.

Best,

Yr. Humble Svt.

You know what the difference is between Global and Thomas Cooley Law Review? Cooley's cite is in the Blue Book.

HEY EVERYONE,

I DON'T KNOW WHY I WAS SUCH A NEGATIVE-NELLY IN MY EARLIER ENTRIES, SO I THOUGHT I'D SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT.

THINGS ARE *GREAT* HERE AT WUSTL. I WENT TO CAREER SERVICES, AND WHILE THAT FLIER WAS FROM A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, THEY POINTED ME TO A *GREAT* OPPORTUNITY IN CHESTERFIELD WITH A SOLO PRACTITIONER THAT I'LL PROBABLY TAKE IF THEY'LL HAVE ME.

THERE ARE MANY, MANY WUSTL STUDENTS WITH MULTIPLE OFFERS IN EVERY ELITE MARKET AROUND THE COUNTRY. GIVEN THAT WUSTL IS A T-19 SCHOOL, THIS IS NOT SURPRISING. LIKE ITS PEER SCHOOLS (UCLA, CHICAGO, GEORGETOWN, ETC.) IT HAS A NATIONAL REPUTATION AND TREATS ITS STUDENTS WELL.

SORRY FOR WASTING YOUR TIME WITH ALL THIS NEGATIVITY EARLIER! THINGS ARE GOING EXTREMELY WELL WHEN IT COMES TO 2L EMPLOYMENT.

TOODLES!

No, no idea. We were, like I understand most schools to be, very siloed within our own class.

But the picture painted here isn't totally unreasonable to me.

This is why you don't go to TTTs like WUSTL. It's t12 or bust bitches (***Newsflash*** it's Georgetttown and CornellTTT this year).

Now that the construction on 40 is done, I know traffic-wise it won't be horrible, but I'm more concerned with parking.


Have a friend there... parking is never a problem apparently. The lot right next to the law school is sometimes filled between 9-11 am, but other than that you can get a spot. The lot that is about 200 yards from the front door of the law school always has spaces. It costs around 450 for the year for a permit.

If this was answered already, oh well.
