Description of service

I put May, 2008 because that is my graduation date. The service is a J.D. degree at a law school. (Private law school education) 88 credits are required to graduate and each credit hour is over $1000. Three-years of school full-time (or you can do five years of school part-time for the same price). I just calculated all of my student loans that went toward tuition for the 88 credits and that represents the $108,250 figure. This includes only tuition service, not room and board and books and the many other expenses.

Review of Service

Very over-priced. Impossible to get a cheap professional or graduate school education anymore these days. However, it is still worth it. I figure I will be ahead in a few short years when I am making the total amount of my loans back each year as my salary. Really do need a professional or graduate-level degree to truly get ahead these days. The quality of the service was in my ability to earn the degree. As far as the school's service itself goes, I have a laundry list of complaints but those are tough to address without mentioning the specific school name.


The best tip I have is to get a scholarship somewhere. Otherwise, it will be tough to graduate from a professional or graduate level school with anything under $100,000 in student loans.
