Really Cooley? Cooley Law School Stadium

They bought the naming rights to a minor league stadium to gain visibility.

I wonder if they will add "Stadiums named after your law school" to their ranking criteria next year.

They should've bought naming rights to the Nationals' stadium here in DC. I bet there are some Cooley alumni playing for the team given how often they win.

I wonder if it will count towards their rankings in "Non-Library Total Square Footage". After all, job placement and income are weighted the same as square footage and enrollment in their rankings.

Do you think they will offer admission to anyone who attends three or more games at the stadium?

Wouldn't that require there to be someone who hadn't already been offered admission to Cooley?

Hmm, well maybe they get offered a partial scholarship if they stay in the top 5%.

To quote the website Deadspin.com

"The class A Lansing Lugnuts sold the naming rights to their ballpark, so presenting: Thomas M. Cooley Law School Stadium. Which is fitting, since both Cooleys are filled with people expecting to get rich quick, but will likely end up toiling at a thankless job in real estate."

I hope this doesn't damn me to a T3 or T4

Cooley ranked 4th in "most competitive students" in the infamous "Princeton Review." I suppose 47k average starting salary will make you cut your colleagues' throats.

Why thank you for pointing that out. Where would we be without your powers of remembering obscure comments from threads 7 months ago?

Actually, it's not a bad idea. As everyone knows, law schools exist to satisfy their own interests. If a school is a tier 3/4 private school and knows that it will likely never be a top 50 school, it can generate massive amounts of revenue by doing what Cooley is doing.

I mean, obviously, Cooley Law School will never have a large endowment (graduates giving back). However, it generates a lot of money by accepting people with low scores that are willing to pay $30,000 a year to go to law school. By purchasing a stadium, it appeals to individuals that have low scores/don't do research. So true, to me and you, it seems silly to purchase a stadium. But to other people, it's like "holy sh*t - Cooley has a stadium?"

Regardless of what we think, the school is generating massive amounts of revenue. Possibly more revenue than 90%+ of other law schools. Is it unethical? Probably. Will it help the reputation of the law school? No. Does it generate tons of money for Cooley? Yes. Does that money satisfy Cooley's own interest? Indeed.

So while we may make fun Cooley, it is probably generating more money than the law school you go to. From our standpoint, this is irrelevant. But in the world of law schools being money making programs, Cooley isn't far from the top.
