This is my first post on the forum so hello to all!
I know that there is a general tendency for everyone to disregard Cooley but I would like to know just how bad it is. I've been offered 85% tuition there, and have applications pending at Wayne Sate & Michigan State. Unfortunately, the scope of my legal education is limited to Michigan so that I can be with my boyfriend. I know this may seem naive to some, but we're serious and I really have no desire to leave him for school. My numbers are ok, and yes I realize that sending in my applications now is way late in the game. Does it really matter that much though? Wayne's deadline is 3/15 but I missed the priority deadline for scholarships by one month. As for MSU, app deadline is 4/30, and the deadline for priority scholarship consideration is today (2/15).
Anywho, I'd like to talk with fellow 0L's, and all L's for that matter, about the best way to proceed. I personally believe that your education is what you make of it, and Cooley will give you the tools to succeed just as any other law school will; how you manage yourself is what really matters (my opinion).
It's possible that my opinion is highly uneducated as it pertains to law school, and it may very well be, but I would like to hear all of your thoughts!
