University of Miami vs. FIU (pt)

Postby lawschoolgiant » Wed Apr 21, 2010 12:19 pm

I really want UM because of the prestige, and placement in Miami...

I really want FIU because of the cost and the beautiful facilities, and the fact that I am married and would like to work PT and go to school PT. (not mandatory, but preferable).


Any factors I am leaving out...please vote and explain

go UM. Cost more but better job prospects plus possibility of decent job in the Miami area. Know that you are basically stuck in the area, however, as UM has limited portability.

I LOVE MIAMI! Never want to move from here, so that is not a concern.

If I get a job making 60k from law school, how would I survive my loans would be 60% of salary.
