General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Cooley in the fall

Yes you literally die when you graduate from Cooley, the government has an order to kill you as you walk off the stage. It's like are your serious multiple books, it looks worse on a resume? 

Neither the strawman argument or your anecdotal evidence disprove the point; that Cooley puts you at a severe disadvantage in the legal job market.

I hope I can provide a different perspective.  I am a small business owner.  I have worked my butt off to get the business to a point where it can run pretty much on it's own with minimal oversight. 

Why don't you unemployed law school grads hang your own shingle?  Create a job.  Stop looking for someone else to take care of you. 

I hope I can offer a different perspective too.  I am a law school graduate.  I have a job.  It's a fairly well-paying job, not Biglaw but enough to pay my loans off, live on, and still save a fair amount of money per month.  I am not looking for someone to take care of me. 

Yet I will tell all of you law is a TERRIBLE idea in terms of job security for 80-90% of the people entering law school right now.  You have no idea how bad it is until you're put in the position of looking for a job afterwards. Plus if you're right out of law school you are not really qualified to practice law.  You don't have the necessary skills to do anything practical.

Getting a job after Cooley is exponentially harder than at just about every other law school in the country.  Be warned.
