Summary: I like Thomas Cooley graduates and the students who are going there. The students are not the problem. Let me tell you what is really going on with this law school.

I'm going to entertain you with stories of bribes, prostitution, drugs, alcohol, self-serving and an out-of-control bureaucracy. In addition, these stories will involve both me and a certain law school. This may end up being one of the most scandalous articles you have ever read, and it may get me sued. I've been holding onto this material for too long, and I might as well share it with you.

However, that comes later and, before I do, I want to talk a little bit about Thomas Cooley Law School. This fourth tier law school has been in the news lately due to a bunch of layoffs. According to some estimates, between 50 and 70 percent of the faculty at the law school have been let go. While it has taken decades for the word to get out, law students have figured out that attending this school is not likely to get them very far in the legal profession. Instead, it may lead to long-term relationships with collection agencies and lawyers trying to collect a debt the students may never repay.

I've seen companies make MILLIONS by loaning Thomas Cooley students money, so I am uniquely positioned to educate you about the extent of the scam going on there.
