General Board / Re: POLL - Better career earnings - MBA or JD ?

I agree with the majority of the replies on this thread -- it is more about what you do with your degree rather than which one you have. In this economy though -- it has to be somewhat of a toss-up.

I wish. Started with over 1,100 and will graduate with just over 300. You could be DEAD LAST in the active student body and still look amazing.

How so? Do you think it easier, harder, etc?


Well if your grades are good enough to transfer to a decent school in your home market, it is very much worth it.  But your experience will be completely different from the one you had a cooley.

It just facilitates your ability to network.  Name recognition has its pluses as well.

if you're so anal retentive about the place, why leave?

:),
Any words of encouragement you give are extremely sarcastic.

CooleyGrad,
Congratulations on graduating. I did well my 1L year and I am currently in the process of transferring from Cooley. I know what you had to go through. Keep up the good work.

I just get a little annoyed when people give the students a hard time. They do not deserve it.

Well the anguish that we are put through, regarding the prestige of the school, mostly derives from the school's liberal admissions policy. Unfortunately, most people don't see how ridicules cooley is once you are in.  I was always told that cooley is "easy to get in but impossible to stay in."  

Of course I am biased, but I think there is a lot to be said for someone that wants to be a lawyer so bad that they uproot their entire life, move to a terrible state, and endure that punishment.

may be a bit too late for him if it was posted two years ago. Others might find it useful though I guess.

Yes -- obviously too late for him but still beneficial for the information to be out there especially when you consider that there were 1343 views without a reply.

Thanks -- I liken it to Vietnam personally -- I appreciate my time there but am glad it is over.

Why and where are you trying to transfer to? If you would rather reply via PM feel free to do so.

former cooley people?

First, I tend to support it. Care to point out an example that you didnt just read wrong?


Well for starters I see you bashing Cooley all the time.


I know people that are about to graduate that hate cooley.  It isn't out of the question -- but how about a simple quiz to prove you attend?

When you get off of the elevator on the 3rd floor of the Brennan Law Library (where the huge computer lab is) there are a bunch of pictures hung all over that floor.  What are they of?

Re-read my post and you will answer your own question.

Are you going to answer mine?

One of my profs mentioned that people transfer into cooley. How many did you see do that? Did they say why?

I don't know of anyone that transferred in because if you transfer in you probably could have just gotten in to begin with.  Maybe if something happened and someone needed to move back home and take advantage of the liberal scheduling options????
