64.8% of St Thomas Grads are known to be employed 9 mos after graduation
75% of those in Bar Required Positions
85.7% of which are in full time positions

So if you do the math -
If you actually make it to graduation, you have a 43.96% chance of becoming an actual full time lawyer 9 months after graduating

I had completely forgotten about Florida Coastal as an institution until going through NorB. I think the OP needs to seriously consider there; opens up the north FL legal market for them!

What's peculiar is that the largest city in Florida doesn't have a decent law school...

You're the 4th largest state with no serious economy to speak of that would support a large legal market...

Because Missouri, Iowa, Indiana, Connecticut, Michigan, North Carolina, Alabama, Wisconsin, Arizona, Maryland, and Utah all have such enormous thriving economies?

ETA: Florida has the 4th largest economy in the US, contributing $754,000,000,000 annually, or 5.2% of the total US GDP.

Its the gel man wrote:One thing that appeals to me about Nova is the program they have in Barcelona where you can get boarded in both Europe and Florida. Is this worth anything?

It's worth more debt before they send you out into joblessville.

The ones in bold at one time or another had economies that were suited, so yes. I was commenting on the fact that the size of your state (population or geography [lol]) isn't determinative for the health of the legal market.

I never said anything about Iowa, but if you want to know, it's AT LEAST PRODUCING SOMETHING.

I'm not going to write anything lengthy on why the Florida economy is ill-suited for BIGLAW MARKET.

I don't even know how I got in the position of defending Florida. Its a s*** hole of a state with a foreclosure and tourism based economy and one of the worst education systems in the US.

OP should consider the Certificate in International Law from FCSL.

Not only well he have a JD then, but also a Certificate. This could give him a leg up with wachtell.

1. i had to reread the thread when i realized we're not talking about villanova
2. these schools seem like they'd be amazing for someone with a lot of money who wanted to just fuck around for 3 years and get a j.d. just to say they have a j.d.
3. i'm not sure you should go to either of these schools
4. i'm not sure you should go to law school
