Thomas M. Cooley / Transfer opportunities from Cooley
« on: August 23, 2010, 11:45:41 AM »
The common question I get from the students I tutor is what is it going to take to get out of Cooley?
Honestly, I have a love/hate relationship with the school so I often tell them to reconsider transferring but the numbers are difficult but possible.

Two of my students transferred this term and one did not get in to the school she wanted so she stayed put.

The students who transferred had an overall gpa of 3.40 which is tough at Cooley.
The one who didn't get in had a 3.33 and won book awards and could've gotten into many schools but only wanted a plush school or should I say a school with a plush reputation.

The bottom line guys is for those of you looking to transfer you need to understand that if you don't make the Dean's List you have no chance and do not assume you'll make the D List because you did well in undergrad.  This is a different ball game.

Anybody want to e-mail me directly feel free too.

Thomas M. Cooley / First Term at Cooley
« on: August 22, 2010, 11:32:08 AM »
Good morning guys, how is everyone this weekend?

My name is Bill Amadeo and I am a Cooley Grad, a licensed attorney and a tutor for Cooley students and the Bar Exam.
One of my students asked me to join this forum and I've been surfing around and there is certainly a lot of Cooley bashing going on.

Let me just say that people are scared of what they don't know and as someone who has seen and experienced every facet of what Cooley has to offer, I can tell you there is a whole lot more than meets the eye.

Don't believe that people who go to Cooley are not getting jobs because honestly, nobody is getting jobs right now but that will change in time.

If anybody has any questions about our school whehter you are an incoming 1L or a student prepping for the bar feel free to pick my pain.
While I run a tutoring service, I will glad to speak with ANY Cooley student free of charge just to give you a lay of the land.

The one piece of advice I'll give you right now is not to believe everything you read about Cooley whether it be good or bad.
People have agendas.

Good luck everyone and my door is always opened.

Bill Amadeo
