Anybody planning to or considering Cooley in fall 2010? Which campus are you looking at? Have you visited?

*Please no trash talking the school, just people who seriously are or considering it.

Don't do it. Your resume looks better without it than with it. I have heard that it can actually HURT you in the future if employers see it.

Yes you literally die when you graduate from Cooley, the government has an order to kill you as you walk off the stage. It's like are your serious multiple books, it looks worse on a resume? 

Nobody is saying Cooley is Harvard, but I have actually worked with people that went to Cooley and were doing fine for themselves even people from CBA schools make it.  If the OP wants to be a lawyer then go for it you have a 0% chance of being unless you go to law school. If the OP is expecting anything to be handed to him from Cooley he is in for a surprise, but go to law school if you want to be lawyer, but do be aware of the risks and that Cooley is not Harvard.

There might be someone that thinks Cooley looks bad on a resume, I worked for this solo practioner who said he would never hire someone from Boalt or Stanford are those bad schools uhhhh noooooooooo! It was just his own opinion and he was entitled to have it.  Each employer can have their own view and there are a lot of factors that go into hiring someone other than the name of their school

You need to stop leaking state secrets like that man, Cheney has a lot of extra free time for hunting trips these days.....just a thought of caution........

Neither the strawman argument or your anecdotal evidence disprove the point; that Cooley puts you at a severe disadvantage in the legal job market.

Everyone thinks Cooley is a joke. It's literally the butt of law school jokes. It is worse than not having a law degree.

pointing out your medical disability isn't a point. Answer the question, if you can, and your won't, because you can't.

This would only be a valid argument if you got that degree at the grand total of $0.00
