I am pretty sure all schools encourage you to stay at their school and want people to enroll. Again, Cooley is a business and they want to meet their budgetary profit concerns. It is basically a recruiting tool and they need to meet their bottom line it sucks they are raising tuition, but it happens at every single school in America. I don't think it is a big deal at all, but that is my opinion. If people need to go out and knock Cooley law school down to feel better about themselves go for it I guess.
No if Harvard runs out of money obviously they won't, but if they did getting money would be their number one concern. Money is every schools top concern, because if they don't have it then nothing matters. If they can't pay their professors, dean, library, internet bill, so on then their reputation is going to sink pretty rapidly. Just like any law firm or business in general they care about their reputation, but if they run out of money they will lay off people left and right throwing their reputation out the window.
I think my favorite part of the article was this line: Thomas M. Cooley Law School — ranked #12 among ABA accredited schools, according to Thomas M. Cooley Law School. I agree with the student in the article that the fact the Cooley publishes it's own rankings and rates itself so high every time makes it look bad. I also think that receiving an e-mail like that one would push me to transfer.
If you are that fickle then I expect you to get a divorse in less than a year of marriage. "It all went downhill when out pastor kept pushing us to encourage people to avoid divorse and then the last nail in the coffin was when my husband sent an email asking me not to leave him, how dare he try to encourage me to do things that I should want to do anyways, I hope he burns in hell!!!!"
