Are you saying he should reconsider law school in general because he goes to Cooley? Wow so harsh even for a religious ranking follower. Your are top 10%, I doubt he is. And again, wow what a deucher.
I would try to get more scholarship money out of Cooley. If you can get another 15,000 for the next 2 years out of them stay at Cooley. If they don't give you anything extra then MSU might be better.
OP- he is right though with the other schools in MI like WSU and Detroit Mercy. Both are much stronger regionally and your job chances would be better in MI if you transfer. I don't think its true that Cooley is a joke, but people like Hamilton are everywhere, including MI firms and won't give you a chance coming out of Cooley.
