Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Cooley vs Capital
« on: May 04, 2012, 12:45:28 PM »
I agree with the gist, but not the specifics. Do any of those firms hire anyone from out of the top 14? 

Cooley often gets singled out because they are a T4, making it seem its just them that suck, when in fact many schools have hiring issues with the big law firms.  There are countless schools that could be substituted for "Cooley" in this analysis.

I going to Cooley a good idea?  Probably not for most.  FL has several tank schools, not just Cooley.  Ever talked to a FL Coastal grad?

^^^ Don't trust any of that.  How do those Capitol numbers compare with say, Akron, which I know is fine.  Is 1,131 inactive out of almost 6,000 normal?  I'm assuming most of those are retires.  Is 153 with disciplinary action normal?  Doesn't seem too many out of 6000.

I'm personally not a big fan of Cooley, but what some fool at some unnamed firm says....come on.

The Newt will never be completely gone- political herpes.  I just hope we don't get any more breakouts- its such a turn off.

Did the OP call two thirds of the population morons?  This guy?  Seriously? 

This guy calling anyone else a moron is the most horrifying case of calling the kettle black I have ever seen- including the Newt.

Let me get this straight: there are people that think T.V. shows are educational?  Its just a show, not designed to be anything other than entertaining.  What could you possibly learn?

I like Star Trek, but other than social satire and criticisms, which is present in any worthwhile piece of lit or film, I'm not expecting to learn anything about physics or molecular bio.  Boston Legal is funny and entertaining, but that's about it.

The other 4 can vary, Appalachian, FL Coastal, Weidner, Touro are up there.  Anything with high attrition and low employment stats = bad, bad, bad.

Capitol has high attrition, but okay employment stats.

I admit I don't know too much about Capitol.  But, Cooley's reputation is horrendous.  Cooley is definitely on the top 5 list of places not to go.  Is Capitol?  Probably not.

I think you posted in the wrong place.  And I'd rather not usurp the OP's thread here.  Not too much help anyone can really giver her at this point, but you never know- maybe there is some maneuver I never heard of.

Ifc I'm not mad at you. This is just a forum, anger has no place here.  Sarcasm, banter, playful rhetoric- yes, but actual anger- no.  You can like or dislike whomever you choose, that won't piss me off.

I hope you're not solicitus, not anger, but whew- I felt like I was picking on a kid in Jr. High with that guy.
