The numbers speak for themselves. The toilet had an 87.7 percent acceptance rate, i.e. 1,072/1,222. One wonders about the profile of the 150 applicants who were denied admission. There seems to be an error under the Matriculants section, regarding full-time and part-time students. Perhaps the numbers were mixed up, since “only” 303 students applied for part-time enrollment.
LSAT Scores by Percentile: Let’s review the LSAT Percentiles Table furnished by Cambridge LSAT. Unfortunately, the most recent data is for the 2011-2014 cycle. However, this provides a clear picture of competence as the numbers have been consistent recently. According to this source and chart, an LSAT score of 141 – Cooley’s TOTAL MEDIAN for 2015 – would have placed one in the 16th percentile. A 138 on the exam, which was the garbage heap’s 25th percentile score for this year, would place you firmly in the 10th percentile of test-takers in 2014. That is BEYOND PATHETIC!!
Bachelor’s Degree Not Required: This notorious trash pit has posted the following info on a page labeled “Applying Without a Bachelor’s Degree”:
“Please note: Some state bars require a bachelor's degree; however, the State Bar of Michigan does not. Please check the educational requirements of the bar in the state in which you plan to practice law.
Most WMU-Cooley students have a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university. Yet, under court rules adopted by the Michigan Supreme Court, an applicant may also attend if the student has completed at least 60 semester hours or 90 quarter hours either toward an undergraduate degree from an accredited school or from an accredited junior or community college.
WMU-Cooley Law School welcomes inquiries from individuals with associate's degrees or 60 to 90 credits at a four-year institution.
Students who have completed from one-half to three-quarters of the work necessary for a bachelor's degree must meet the admission requirements outlined in the next two sections to qualify for admission. Please call the Admissions Office at (517) 371-5140, ext. 2244 if you have any questions about your particular circumstance.” [Emphasis mine]
Yes, what a TTTTruly pre$TTTTigiou$ in$TTTTiTTTTuTTTTion of higher educaTTTTion, huh?!?! Hell, this school is approaching the admi$$ion$ “standards” of most community colleges, i.e. open enrollment. I wouldn't be surprised if the pigs offered remedial reading and writing courses.
Conclusion: In the final analysis, in the game of law school admissions, TTTThoma$ M. Cooley Law $chool is the equivalent of a $5 prostitute who is twitching and jerking due to extensive meth use. This sweltering pile of excrement will admit damn near ANYONE WITH A PULSE! Does anyone with an IQ above room temperature believe that U.S. taxpayers should be financing these morons’ “legal education”?! With the information above, and given the toilet’s reputation, those who failed to gain admission to this toilet must have had serious criminal backgrounds or other huge red flags.
