Ding at Cooley
« on: March 30, 2005, 04:04:30 PM »
Dinged at Cooley today

4.0 UGPA 179 LSAT, PhD Astrophysics, Nobel Laureate 5 consecutive years,

They told me to get a 180 and try again.  I thought I had a shot, but I know that they are trying to get higher LSATs.

It's probably because of affirmative action, white boy.

Wouldn't you feel bad if someone who was actually going to Cooley came across this thread?

My last post didn't go through, so I'll re-post.

Yes, I have 3 friends at Cooley right now. I've had classes with them for a few years and know they're all smart people. For whatever reason they didn't go to higher-ranked schools (2 of them because they couldn't afford it). They'll be good lawyers and serve the profession well.

If there's one thing I learned while working for the gov't it's that you should be nice to everyone, you never know who will be your next boss

I hear that the kids who go to Cooley develop thick skin rather quickly.

everyone knows (including Cooley people) that Cooley is the lowest ranked school.  This is no mystery to anyone, and this post isn't malicious.  Would I feel bad if someone from cooley came across this thread? - no.

Actually I would say Appalachian is right there with Cooley, as well as Inter-American, Puerto Rico, and a few others. Either way there is no need to condescend the schools or people. What exactly is the point of the thread, it is niether creative or funny.
