Denver
-------------
Starting Salaries (2005 Graduates Employed Full-time)
Private sector (25th-75th percentile): $50,000 - $90,000
Median in the private sector: $62,500
Percent in the private sector who reported salary information: 45%
Median in public service: $46,000

Cooley
---------------
Starting Salaries (2005 Graduates Employed Full-time)
Private sector (25th-75th percentile): $39,000 - $57,200
Median in the private sector: $48,250
Percent in the private sector who reported salary information: 66%
Median in public service: $43,000

If you didn't make top 10% at Denver, you're not much better off than a Cooley grad.

Only 1/3 of Cooley students end up practicing.  Once that's factored in, Denver's probably better.

Where do you study?

Where did you get this from, "Brad Pitt?"

It's all there in the Cooley materials, my friend. 

Over a third drop out by the end of the 2nd year.  Only about half of remaining students end up passing the bar.

If you're going to bash TTT's, you have to be informed.

Where do you study?  I'm curious.

Oh I see.

Can I ask you a question? Why did you just make something up and post it on the internet? I notice a lot of LSDers do this. It's mildly psychopathic behavior if you think of it. People come here to learn about law schools, so why intentionally misguide them?

replace "intentionally misguide" with "inarticulately harass" and we could ask you the same question

I would think Denver >>>>>> anywhere in Michigan.  Yes?
CLS '10

The appropriateness of Perpetua would probably depend on the tone of the writing.  When I used it, I (half playfully) thought the extra space made the words sort of resonate.

The truth is there is no difference.

Cooley bashing is a poor attempt by tier 2 students to establish a new heirarchy, one where they and the T14 are on top, and schools like Cooley are on the bottom. This attempt, however, is rooted in snobbery and not reality. Although there is a grand canyon sized hole separating top schools from tier 2, there isn't much separating tier 2 from Cooley.

Looks to me like Denver grads make about 33% more than Cooley grads.  This is significant.  Do you see why?

Don't feed the toilets.  If you're not going to t14 or a select few regional schools law school is a bad investment, whether you're planning on Cooley or Denver or anywhere in between.
Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down.
