And what's with the design :lol:

The color scheme is an epic fail.

I can't even read that. But after looking at it, I have an odd desire to dig up my NES and play Legend Of Zelda.

This is my favorite Cooley metric. :lol:

Total J.D. Enrollment - The total enrollment of a law school reflects its success in attracting students, its appeal to those interested in legal education, and its ability to carry out its institutional mission. While size alone does not assure quality, it does permit a school to offer its students a greater variety of courses, programs, and activities. All other things being equal, a good big school is better than a good small school.

I just like that half of them are directly related to how big the school is, and they still only manage to get themselves up to 12th.

So does the maker of this website go to South Texas or Hastings?

I'm not a Cooley basher, but the methodology is absolutely absurd. I mean this might be the least credible thing out there. If someone actually came up with this as a statistical experiment in a community college stat class, they would probably flunk the course.

I think it tells you a lot about the school when they tout something like that.

Then again, maybe it is Chicago's fault that they don't have 1000 computers available for their 190 students who are required to have laptops!
