Are you fucking crazy?!?esq wrote:Know a guy from UG that went to Cooley, moved from San Diego to do so. Was super stoked, and convinced that Cooley wouldn't hold him back, that it really depended on the person [his work ethic (I never really thought he had any), personality (super flashy wanna be important Econ major), etc., would carry the day.] Last time I talked to him and his wife all they could say was the the experience has been "interesting," code for shitty. He is about the graduate, and while his FB info proudly posted that he was going to Cooley Law a few months ago, all mention of this has now been erased from his account. Almost 3 years and 100dredsK in debt and he is finally waking up the the miserable reality of his predicament. Hopefully he can get his job back at the bank he used to work for.
In a related story, I recall joking with my parents about Cooley law a few years ago, and then told them it’s the worst school in the nation. That weekend, my parent’s friends are over and they drop that their kid went to Cooley. So I ask them how much money he made. They said he made $45k /year and he had graduated a couple years ago. So then I asked whether he had a good scholarship, and they told me he paid full price . I had a difficult time restraining myself from laughing right then and there. But keep in mind this story is about a guy who graduated from Cooley around the boom (i.e. around 2006, I believe). I highly doubt he would have any form of legal employment coming out in today’s legal economy – actually, I know a guy who went to Cooley who has a pretty shocking story. I don’t want to post up details because it’s difficult to do so without pretty much outing who the guy is, but pretty much, guy did INCREDIBLY WELL at Cooley and still had a difficult time scraping up a job for nearly a year, and now he works in a smaller shitlaw firm. If this guy had that much difficulty scraping up shitlaw, just think about how the rest of Cooley’s class is faring ITE.
You and your parents sound like jackasses based on this story.
