Yeah, but they graduated in 1979, 1983, and 1988.

They've all been practicing for more than 24 years, and not ONE is a partner.
Senior Counsel is not Partner.

This isn't to say Cooley sucks.  My point is that there is absolutely a stigma against cooley.  And if your top grads can't crack the biggest firms in Michigan, then the top Cooley grads are going for midlaw and smaller.
then why did you put (partner) next to their name?

Sorry, I meant to say "only ONE" is a partner.  My bad.  I fixed it.

Well, you should think about what is best for you and your family. If a low paid job is enough, one can go to Cooley, but take a look at the future also. Maybe it's easy now but one has to make sure he (she) won't regret anything in 10 -15 years.
