Last I heard, the Deans of multiple Cooley campuses are actually REPLYING on comment threads on the link at the bottom of this page. Needless to say, when someone points out the faulty logic, circular and elementary Cooley reasoning, and other gaping holes in their propaganda, they just choose to ignore it. Apparently they have better things to do than actually TEACHING somebody something- marketing and recruitment OF COURSE!! After all, the resources at Cooley are already being efficiently utilized to make sure this is a top rate school, its students are prepared for the bar and the legal profession, and that they find lucrative and rewarding employment (??!!!!) . Check out the Cooley rankings where where Cooley ranks itself as the second best law school in the country according to objective data despite ranking itself 181 out of 193 law school in terms of percentage of graduates employed, 191 out of 193 law schools in terms of student-faculty ratio, and 160 out of 193 schools ranked in bar passage rates (http://www.cooley.edu/rankings/_docs/Judging_12th_Ed_2010.pdf page 395/424). When the Dean's are simply front-liners trying to sell you the Cooley law proposition with no accountability for the end result (read: six digits of debt and no employment), it is not a surprise they are focusing their time, efforts, and resources on keeping enrollment up and not on what on the fate of their students or the legal profession will be three years down the line.
Perhaps they feel threatened their lucrative positions as law school Deans are at stake. After all Cooley made $271,139,283 in 2009 (http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2010/381/988/2010-381988915-075b3670-9.pdf), that's two hundred seventy one million dollars one hundred and thirty nine thousand two hundred and eighty three dollars- which they apparently are not content with. Either way, Cooley Deans can add one more role to their positions, "Actively surveying and monitoring the internet for negative reports regarding Cooley Law School and countering it with meaningless and intellectually insulting propaganda in an attempt to maximize incentive compensation by increasing student enrollment and retention." The RETIRED FOUNDER of Cooley, Thomas E. Brennan even went out his way to comment on this article to defend Cooley. Perhaps now he can justify why he gets paid $368,581 (Page 39- http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2009/381/988/2009-381988915-0661fd69-9.pdf) year to otherwise literally DO NOTHING in his position as "Professor Emeritus" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emeritus).
My next piece will be titled "Dissecting Cooley Logic", where I tear apart what these Deans (read morally bankrupt and unethical shills) set forth as facts, their misrepresentations, and misleading, self-serving propaganda. Stay tuned.
