Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Accepted - Cooley

It is really obnoxious how the ten or so people who seem to live their lives posting on this board seem to think that everyone who gets under a 170 is an idiot.  There is a reason why the posters on this board always have numbers 168+/3.8+, anyone with lower scores feels inadequate.

Now, I have a 166, and I know that that is 95th percentile, and I know that many of you would have been disappointed with that score.  That's fine; however, 95% of the students who took the exam would have loved to get that score, and then thy come on this board trying to seek advice and instead are surrounded by a majority on this board but a clear minority of law school applicants who imply that their scores would be disappointing.

This is not constructive, and the reason I chose this post was because Cooley very well may be an option for many students and they don't need to be ridiculed.  I work at the public defender's office (no comments from money-grubbers who think this is only for those who don't do well in law school) and two of the most dedicated, successful attorneys there went to Cooley.  They work alongside attorneys from various schools ranging from Syracuse to Fordham (and a Harvard grad retired in the past years).

I think we should support everyone who is actively trying to improve his or her chances of admission by scoping out boards such as these, because those of you lucky enough to have 170s and high GPAs, really don't need much advice or encouragement.




great post and i agree with u 100%.  i specifically said congrats b/c i know people would not be so eager to provided positive comments.  had the title said "Accepted to Harvard"  there would have been a 100 conrats posts in the matter of minutes.  i think its really sad that people put down schools on this board but it shows the level of maturity many people have.

"OH, REALLY? are we being perhaps a tad presumptuous?"

she clearly meant her post as a slam on the school.  now confronted with information that proves U of I can indeed say they are a member of the famous group she is trying to backpedal and see of it was just a funny email b/c of this, that, and the other.

and most of u know u would be jumping of joy if a t14 sent that email to u and sayin ghow great it was that u got.  it wouldn't be funny, it would be the highlight of the day for a lot of people on here.  lets be real here people.

"but to say "some law schools youve heard of and some you havent, but us you definitely have!" is pretty hilarious, especially for me, since i don't know a thing about UI."


their email said they are in the group of famous law schools and that is accurate.  its not presumptious it is a fact.  it didn't say u have heard of them. just b/c u haven't heard of them doesn't mean they are not famous or well respected or national known as one of the countries top law schools.

U of I is a well respected and highly ranked law school.  it is ranked number 27 by US news which many of u seem to live by.  it is a very competitive school and not esy to get into.  so although their email may be funny, which it really isn't, it is accurate.

applications as for ur undergrad GPA so u r correct in usuing thr 2.68 because that was the gpa given by ur schools.  The LSAC gpa is one the calculated to adjust for grad inflation i believe.  ur transcprits say 2.68 so that is the gpa u use.  schools will not think u lied b/c u didn't.  so don't worry about it and continue to put the gpa u got from ur school on ur apps.
