The 'we love Cooley (and mean it)' thread
« on: August 26, 2004, 05:44:39 PM »
Because I do!
I think it's a great opportunity for non-standardised test inclined people and those with tight schedules. I think it's great that people won't give up to fulfil their ambitions. Seeing as law forms always say they want people who think outside the box, I think it's great that Cooley students don't put themselves into a box and look beyond rankings and what some silly 20-somethings have to say. They are determined to succeed and so they will. C'mon guys. we've had our fun. Let's give it up for Cooley.....!!!!

Green, I didn't understand what you said at all!

And no, I won't be there. It's not a good match for me, but I'm a supporter.

I think the Cooley concept is great:  permit people to prove they are capable of achieving in law school instead of basing admission on a bunch of old grades (really old grades for some of us) and the results of a convoluted exam.

From a purely business perspective the Cooley concept is pure genious.  Law schools are cash cows and Cooley is all about being the biggest.  Even if you have a lot of people who don't make it past 1L, you still get to keep the sky-high tuition that was paid.

...hmmmm...who's with me on starting our own law school?  I'm seeing some big $$$ in this... ;D

"and the results of a convoluted exam."

the LSAT is not convoluted, i think its the best standardized test ever created.  aside from complaints about it being hard, it really is a well written test and i dont think theres really anything significant to complain about.

This is NOT goin to turn into a is-the-LSAT-good-or-bad thread. No no no no no.
I think it's a well-written test too. I just think it's considered more important than it is, it carries too much weight.
I mean, why should someone who graduated with a 3.0 but has a 170 LSAT get to go to NYU, say, but someone with a 3.9 160 LSAT probably not? It's ridiculous.

You know, I really hate to call anyone out in a discussion but you are really out of line on this one.  I think it's convoluted; you don't.  My opinion vs. your opinion.  Big deal.  Let's keep this thread concentrated on the Cooley discussion.  Thank you.
