I hope you dream comes true, I really do, honestly.  It's just like undergrad, but X 10.   You graduate and think life will be cake and then end up taking a job that is half of what you expected. 

PD jobs are, unexpectedly, competitive.  So are military JAG jobs.  New grads want the massive experience provided by both.  Neither are, by no means, a sure thing.  The top ten grad I mentioned, I'll say it again- top ten percent of her class, is getting passed over at Legal Aid. The full time opening went to someone else.

I don't know the FL legal market.  I suspect all these law schools are popping up because of corporate job openings.  Corporate jobs are "big law" and the hardest to get.  If you are at Cooley now, and not Canadian,  it might be worth you while to study in FL.  I love St. Pete, such a fun city :)

I'm not at all trying to be mean or disrespectful, pslaw2011.  I'm guessing that you are either not in law school or a 1L.  The job market is grim, very grim.  Region matters, as does the specific school when seeking employment.  Everyone has a Bachelors.  Everyone has a JD.  Everyone is competing for a limited  number of jobs.  Everyone seems to think that employers will be beating down their door, trust me, they won't.  Hundreds of new grads apply for the same positions every year.

More speculation:  your starting at Penn State this fall.  That's good.  Penn State has an impressive draw in PA.  Just remember, Pitt, U. Penn, Temple, Vil. all do too.  Those who have a tough time finding a job have nothing wrong with them.  There are just too many of them, well too many of us.

There is something compelling and refreshing about the optimism of youth.  ;D

He deactivated his LSD account.  He' ll be back with a different name, he always is.  Like a cockroach out of the wall when he hears the word "Cooley".  I should have waited before I called him out, oh well.  I doubt that he knows hes making Cooley students look like fools.

I honestly, don't know any specific details about how schools report their stats.  I suspect Campos is right. I can say from my own experience, I have seen a school misreport their stats to the ABA.  The numbers they reported were so deflated I could count an excess of student well over what was reported by virtue of being there.  I also know so many recent 2010 grads, good students, that don't have a job yet.  One was even in the top ten percent and is still looking.  Students from schools with much better numbers than Cooley, T3 and T2 schools.  Scary.

Okay.  Your just trying to be a dic.k.  You are that guy- cooleylawstudent.  Ha, I remember you.  Cooley's reputation  is your passion not mine.  I don't go to Cooley.  You do.

Your insecure anger is as apparent as Kanye West and almost as amusing.


Specifics are needed.  What is being said? What does Cooley accuse, the only two specific attorneys mentioned of saying?  How can they sue "anonymous" bloggers?  Did they actually pay to a forensic IT investigation?

I read the article published by Cooley, but that is hardly objective.  I will admit, while their argument may be valid in terms that they are better than assumed, it shows blatant and shotty ethics to self publish an article stating that oneself is among the best.  Hence, I cannot trust anything self published by Cooley.

I'm not saying Cooley sucks, mind you, only that the tactics they use are poor and transparent, ultimately counter productive- Hamilton's original point, btw.  I try to be open minded enough to give the school the benefit of the doubt, rather than condemn them right out of the gate (which most people seem to do).

What, specifically, is being said that they contest?

I'm almost positive the non ABA school to ABA school transfer credit limit is between 12 and 18 credits per ABA standards.  Haven't read that part in years, but it is addressed by the ABA.

I find it a little amusing that law students and those in the legal community are potentially more arrogant about the ABA accreditation thing than the ABA itself.  Something else to beware of going to a non ABA school, it may not be right, fair, or even reasonable but they are the ones doing most of the hiring.

Thanks for reopening this pslaw2011. 

That guy has logic and analogy cohesiveness problems, i.e. he makes no rational sense and poses no real threat.  If I had to guess, he is a Cooley student who has insecurity issues lashing out unnecessarily like a caged animal (there, now he will bother me and not you :)).

Cooley in FL?  I don't know how I feel about it.  I know Ava Marie left MI recently for FL, but I figured that had mostly to do with the horrible MI economic situation.  The legal community in FL may be concerned that Cooley will make the full move in the near future.

FL has so many new law schools.  Don't know if they can support another, especially one as big as Cooley.  The school says they want a student body of 700.  700? That is more than the entire law student body in many states.  I know FL is big, but is it that big?

Can I be a simpleton, too?

When did Suffolk become 3rd tier, 2011?  They were fourth last I checked.  Doesn't really matter on that level though. 3rd or 4th, same diff.  Go with who ever is cheaper for you.

Uh, I see many crazy ones on LSD, but this one might be the craziest.  I love Europe, I love Spain, but you can't go to school there if you want to practice here.  Hispanic or not, why aren't you focusing on Puerto Rico or Mex.  One is US and the other you can get crossover practice jobs.  They both speak Spanish just fine, even if one is super hard to understand. :)
