Student Reviews and Ratings for Western Michigan University-Thomas M. Cooley Law School

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

I graduated in '93 and passed the bar with an 80 percent on the first attempt. Impressive for me, since my LSAT was in the range of 55 percentile. The classes are tough, and you need to study hard everyday. It pays off. If you let up on your studies, it will cost you.My goal was to open a private firm. I accomplished that, after a prominent internship and entry level trial attorney job. I then hung my shingle, and 20 years later, I can say, I never felt let down by the Cooley LS education I earned.Ignore the naysayers, whiners. Set challenging career goals. If you put your heart and mind into your studies, the effort pays off - Cooley Law School delivers! Go for it!

Great place. I am glad I attended this law school.

Do NOT go to this school. You will be required to take a 0 credit hour course your first semester at this school. This will bring your course load up to 6 classes to qualify as a full time student and stay on track to graduate in three years. This was a complete waste of time and I would have gone to a different school had I known that this class was required. As a first term student, time is a luxury that most of us don't have. This 0 credit hour course takes 39 hours out of your first term. I suggest going to ANY OTHER school that doesn't require this class.

Overall Rating:

Don't go here. It's shady. The place operates like a high school. This school is more interested in your money, than creating and shaping good lawyers. It's a waste of time and money. If you want to feel like you are in high school again, then this place is for you. There are a few Professors who have a high school mentality and operate off of their feelings instead of being professional. Do yourself a favor and find somewhere else that is not shady and don't operate like a high school. Anywhere is better than this place. It's called the worst law school for a reason because it sucks. Don't invest your money in this bs. Instead, go to a better institution that operates like a normal law school. REPEAT: NOT A GOOD CHOICE! MOVE ON!

Very shady practices at this school. They are all about the profit. I hate a student threaten me and they did nothing about it. Horrible school.
