I saw some guys giving Cooley a hard time so just for fun I went to their site to see their listings. I dont know how accurate they are or not, but they list themselves as 6 schools above stanford 8 above berkely and others such as duke and cornell were way on the bottom with University of San Diego listed as the worst on the list. Think it's accurate?

Wow... straight from Cooley's website. Very objective. And people make fun of Cooley because anyone willing to pay the tuition can get in.

Libel would require actual malice- they can't prove that.
False advertising? It's not false advertising to say you are the greatest thing in the world even if most people agree you are not.

Cooley will likely continue being cooley.

BTW there are many, many, threads on this topic.

It's hilarious and sad that Cooley developed its own rankings designed to emphasize its strongest points and take importance off its weakest points... and it still can't break the top ten.  Cooley is like that annoying kid who brags to everyone about how much cooler he is than everyone else... then goes home and cries himself to sleep.
