Cooley Benefits Most from Student Loan Debt

Postby LetsGoLAW » Wed Nov 23, 2011 2:45 pm

It appears Cooley is topping another ranking! The ABA Journal reports Cooley amasses the highest debt revenue compared to any law school:

1) Cooley, with $87.6 million in debt revenue
2) Georgetown, with $67.9 million in debt revenue
3) Harvard, with $58.2 million in debt revenue
4) American, with $53.5 million in debt revenue.
5) New York University, with $49.6 million in debt revenue

At least the other schools offer some employment prospects.

I would not be surprised considering it has the largest enrollment. Also, quoting from the article:

"The private school earning the most in student debt revenue was the University of California at Hastings, the blog found."

lolwut? (I'm guessing they meant public)

That list could also be titled "5 Worst Diploma Mills."

Considering just how enormous Cooley is I'm actually surprised they weren't ahead in debt $$ by more.

Perhaps Cooley should just use this ranking metric. They’re already number 1!

LOL

And that is why it is easier to get jobs out of these schools, and even Cornell than it is from harvard columbia nyu and gtown.

Increased supply will not increase demand.

Anyone have a list that breakdowns debt per student? That would be interesting.
