i graduated in the first class from drexel law last year.  passed the pa and nj bar and have a job at a boutique firm outside the city.  drexel's program is good.  i didnt actually participate in the coop program b/c i started working at a firm and just did that through school rather than the coop.  the program gives you good real world experience however, the coop is not normally a wide open door to job offers, most people used the coop experience as a resume builder and to get the experience to take to other interviews.  i really didnt get any negative feedback from people on interviews who spoke about drexel and it being a new school, and at least it gives you something you can talk about at parties with other attorneys. 

right now i work with a few attorneys from nova and widener.  the drexel education i think is better than what i heard abotu from those guys.  and while you'll always have complaints about what school you're in, my complaints are nothing compared to what they experienced.
