If you don't go to Cooley, you don't know enough to say its crap.
Its good in its area.
its just as good as most other 4th tier schools.
3. Did you prep for that 173? If not, prep for the next one. (There are inexpensive ways to do this, btw.)
Do realize law school or any form of education is a LONG-TERM investment. As far as the good old boys club goes it might be true in some places and not true in others. People will bash and say good things blah blah, but at the end of the day no matter what school you go whether you succeed or fail will be on you.
Thanks for all the comments. I looked up the six law schools in Michigan on Gradschools.usnews.rankingsan dreviews.com and found out that the average starting salary between even Wayne State (tier 3) and Cooley is an extra zero on the end......
