John, buddy please stop putting me in a position where its necessary to defend Cooley. A comparison with Stanford- are you f. in kidding me?
I'm not saying Cooley is great. I'm not saying anyone should ever go there. I am saying you are not being fair. Skewing info to cater to a point is just annoying- and unnecessary we all know Cooley sucks.
That comparison was ripped right off of another site. At any rate, I believe it provides an apt comparison, as prospective students may not know how these stats usually pan out at a top school.Here are some additional comparisons I ran with a couple Tier 2 schools:
