If they even had one of those traits, they wouldnt be going to cooley. even worse, they wouldnt be tricked by cooley into attending that joke of an institute.
although these students may find success later in their career, still doesnt change the fact they sucked in the past.
I might be attending Cooley next year on a full ride and I passed up admission at Hofstra to do it. I just can't convince myself that 150k+ debt would be wortha legal education. To pool an entire student body into a category of fuck ups is not reasonable. But I suppose if you need to shit on something without put much thought or effort into it then Cooley is a great candidate. Kudos
That's the problem. If Hofstra (T2/T3 border hopper) @ sticker is the best you can do you should think hard about law school being the best decision for you. At Cooley you will graduate with no opportunities, and even a full ride at cooley will incure something like ~50k in debt just from COL. It's fiscally irresponsible to attend Cooley unless you have a guaranteed job lined up (daddy's firm or something).
It was with a 10,000 scholly assuming I am in the top 40% and Hofstra jumped 14 places this year in the rankings and whats wrong with Hofstra? From everything I have heard it is a good school. I am not worried about my future employment as I know that with hardwork and determination I will be just fine
it wouldn't be a bad school if you picked it up and moved it to like...cleveland. i don't mean any disrespect, but when you're at best the 5th or 6th best school in that city alone, combined with the fact that you're going up against the top grads from harvard, yale, stanford, chicago, nw, cornell, BU, duke, gtown, penn, michigan, and basically every other prestigious school in the country, AND the most expensive COL in the country, AND high tuition even with a 10k/yr scholarship, you're not in a good position to succeed from the start.
your optimism is admirable, but probably misplaced
