And this school calls itself #2 and nonprofit? Honestly, I don't know whether I am more saddened by people willing to attend or by the school trying to make as much money as possible by screwing people over.

According to the ABA profile, it had an 85% acceptance rate (I'm counting part + full time). If the drop in test takers this year equates to a drop in applicants, I wonder if Cooley might finally hit a >90% acceptance rate.

Tagged. As if anyone needed another reason to make fun of the state of Florida / the ABA / the legal profession as a whole...

Lawyers just have no balls - the ABA ripped them out as required for entering a state bar.

It doesn't have to be that way. Express your ABA displeasure to the DoEd, and your Senators and Representatives by email; let them know that you support -and want them to join- the efforts of Sens. Boxer and Grassley against the ABA.

Stop taking it up the ass and do something! It really matters to your future. If Cooley can do this, what prevents other schools from doing it as well? Soon, we'll have a gazillion more law schools churning even more graduates into an already glutted profession. And it won't matter that you graduate from a "Top Law School:" A glutted market affects everyone.

I've long argued for a "Motor Lawyer" law, similar to the Motor Voter act. Everyone is admitted to the bar when they get their driver's license.

Really, what's the point of lawschool anymore? Don't for a minute think these other TTTT's aren't watching Cooley rake in the cash and getting ideas.

Fact is, lawyers are dime a dozen and this industry really has no future. The glut is so severe already that something like 40% of kids from even lower Tier 1 schools don't find full-time jobs in law.

Does passing the bar mean I get to make up stats like you do?

I think the difference between opening up a med school and opening a law school is not that the accreditation requirements are so more stringent for med schools, but the start up cost is so much higher.

For a med school you need a building, a hospital (this is the biggest cost), and doctors who are being paid 100k minimum.

For a law school you need a building and some lawyers who would be thrilled to get out of practice even if its for 60k.

I guess the writer at the New Republic just made all this up:

http://www.tnr.com/article/87251/law-sc ... n?page=0,1

At the "top 50" school he studied for the article, only 45% of grads had real, full time, non-temp jobs 9 months post graduation.

The grim reality is that it's much worse out there than even the most pessimistic of you can imagine. Demand for non-Biglaw track lawyers is essentially less than zero.

You know, I was thinking that Florida was missing something. Thanks, Cooley. Also: nice way to take the statistics from one school and generalize them to all schools in the range, insane. As always, no hyperbole with you.

Retard.

Really, Cooley, really?

Why doesn't the ABA accreditation committee just skip the effing middle man and just sell us our JDs directly for $120K by mail?

So we're mad at the ABA for allowing an already for-profit school the opportunity to make more profit? :wink:

Cooley actually phoned the Cracker Jack people and asked if they could include a JD as a "prize" inside every box, but they said it wouldn't work since everyone already has one.

Shit, my friend is a Cracker Jack vendor at Yankee Stadium, and he has a JD & NY/CT bar admission. Seriously.

FWIW, the actual work environment sounds much better than most places.

I grew up in Riverview, FL. It's a tiny place. I'm trying to figure out where they found a 130,000 square foot facility.

Gotcha. I just can't stop thinking about this sporadically and thinking how fucked up it is. I'm from Tampa so this is a little close to home, I'm sure some retards I went to high school with will end up attending.

You would think that whatever agency decides that Cooley is a non-profit would be at least somewhat supicious of their business model. Or w/e the appropriate term is for a non-profit.
