I'm not so sure that this is correct.
Note that this statement is coming from a supporter of people that choose to go to t2-4 schools for good reasons. I think Cooley's reputation is so vile that almost any t4 would be better, even schools like Whittier or Widener.
cooley's reputation is terrible among law students mainly due to their self-produced rankings. the average lawyer making hiring decisions at a law firm that would consider other t4 candidates most likely doesnt know or doesnt care about that.
Funny thing i've noticed about most lawyer's making hiring decisions at law firms: they used to be law students.
