No new posts on here but I was curious about what everyone thinks of MSU right now? Any comments? Job prospectives? Advice? Thanks!

I had a couple of friends that transferred because they thought MSU sounded better.  They coasted through the program after enduring the 1st 3 terms at Cooley.

I wouldn't say it was "easy" -- I don't think any law school curriculum that I know of is "easy" -- but they didn't go as in-depth in several courses as we did.

The main person I am referring to roomed with one of my best friends that went to cooley.  We compared Taxation and Constitutional Law II material and they covered in their whole semester what took us 4-5 weeks.  Now it may have just been those profs that he had, because I certainly doubt that MSU's whole curriculum covers 1/3 of cooley's but that was just what I understood.

He did say that 3 terms at cooley made him work harder than anyone he knew his first couple of terms at MSU.  Mainly he was used to outlining after week one for fear of becoming part of the cooley attrition statistics... but people were more relaxed at MSU.
