I don't know how much of this is true, but Cooley propaganda is geared towards a "legal education for everybody" type of mentality. In order to do this they offer a wide variety of campuses and larger class sizes.
Is it really a "charge the herd before leading them to slaughter" scam to get more money? Maybe. However, I believe that the law should be available to everyone, not just the elite. What can I say, I'm an ideologue. Cooley does provide a chance for those who had low test scores to at least prove themselves in an actual educational environment. Granted, alot of people fail, but they were at least offered the opportunity, even if they didn't capitalize on it.
So, I might be a bit naive, or maybe biased by my involvement with the school, but I prefer to think that Cooley is truly opening the doors of opportunity to those who were passed over by other schools, and in doing so Cooley is helping those who need it. -alienwalrus
