Well I do not think many Cooley Grads become judges. On top of that not many leave Michigan. So they will not have many votes. More importantly I believe Harvard, Yale, etc have far more grads than other schools. So they will continue to have more votes. Cooley, Ggu and many other tier 2,3,4 students are often not as motivated as a Ivy league students. So when things do not go there way their school graduates to many people or the curve is to hard. Anything to avoid some type of accountability on themselves. Genereally Ivy league students were hard working and motivated when they started. They remain that way at graduation. Many tier 2,3,4 students are also hard working and succeed, but there are more questionable people at lower ranked schools. Those people complain about these schools, but they are the types that would complain no matter what.

Wow, that proves some major ignornace. Cooley grads are all over the nation(in large part due to the fact that many live out of state to begin with and commute in on the weekends will zero intent to EVER practice in Michigan), MANY are judges and motivation comes from a desire to prove yourself, not from being ego stroked all day. Plus the pure mathmatics of it from number of grads. Other schools may have "more than most" but not the "largest" (4 campus's and growing, expect 5 within a year or two, and then more after that)

The white man will always talk smack about a school which has more minorities and women than they do.
It's just racism, so don't expect the rankings to change since Republicans run USNews and they are the biggest racists all. If the votes come in favor of a minority school, they'll just change how they do their rankings. That's how racism works.

So if rankings are based in large part based on the votes of judges, and cooley is spitting out record numbers of lawyers each year flooding the market with them as an increasing percentage of the licensed attorneys and increasing so the standing judges as well, won't the system eventually end up with cooley as #1 simply do to the fact that very soon the vast majority will be cooley grads? The people who cry about wanting to make $160,000 day one tend to be allergic to civil service, cooley grads tend not to have really any other choice according to posters here, so since cooley was created about the same times as the rankings it seems to be all a cooley based conspiracy for global dominance due to a brainwashed society that will buy and/pr kill eachother for whatever $200 shoe a rapping b-ball player wears.

There's not necessarily a direct relationship between # of alumni and # of alumni judges.  Also, I think your assumption about the $160k crowd is wrong.  Plenty of civil service folks started off at the big firms.
Mood: Tired but cheerful.  :)

Just the fact that you have that knee-jerk responce proves a lot. Most people are confused and don't understand when their being invaded and over run.

"Their" is incorrect.  The correct word is a contraction, "they're," which is short for they are.

I am not trying to knock Cooley. It is a fine school and I worked for alumni in California who were great. However, there is a reality and more top25 law school graduates are judges. I am sure there are Cooley grads that become judges.  However, if I were to bet on a Cooley grad becoming a judge v. a Harvard grad any reasonable person bets on the Harvard grad.

Then the Harvard alumni judges rank Harvard #1 it is an awesome system:(
