just wondering, why is cooley the chosen one? i worked in a prosecutor's office and one of the prosecutors was a cooley grad. his words were, "try your best to get into rutgers or seton hall, but if you can't, definitely look at cooley." is there a reason why cooley is so bad? (honest question)
There is no defined reason but my understanding from the board which is alread subject to rumor spreading as disclosure is that there was a kid who came on a while ago trolling about Cooley being the best. It probably doesnt help that they have also adopted a calculator where they can configure rankings that puts cooley near the top of law schools. I'm sure competent lawyers can graduate from there but saying that it is a T15 is simply ludicrous. mind as well disguard the rankings altogether. Any school can be higher if ranked by one single variable.
yeah their rankings are hilarious. they take into account law school square footage and law library square footage, etc. w/ the claim that the bigger the campus (yes they count all of their campuses), the better the school and education! i think they literally say that. i mean how does that not draw ridicule? lol
Yeah. This type of ridiculous claim is what makes Cooley genuinely deserving of ridicule. Being a mediocre law school is one thing, but living (or pretending to live?) in La-la Land, not to mention enticing others to join you, is a whole other kettle of fish. I get mad all over again every time I remember that, as noted below, they count faculty twice
. I think I read somewhere that they weight each factor equally, too. UGH.
