Tulane vs. U of Miami

Postby jordyb » Sun Mar 20, 2011 9:17 pm

So if I get into UF that is where I want to be but I am waiting to hear back. In the meantime I have to let U of Miami know by April 1st whether I will take $15K a year. My decision is between U of Miami with $15K or Tulane at full price. Pretty sure I want to practice in FL but not 100% definite. Any opinions?....I know you guy have plenty

Both of these are expensive options, but if you want to end up in Florida, I would choose Miami. What about FSU? Are you WL or Held at UF?

UM if you want Florida. Tulane if you want access to most of the deep south plus Houston.

I tend to agree but I know Tulane has a better national rep and I want to cover my bases. UF would be a no brainer but I know the COL in Miami is pretty high...

Tulane has a (relatively) better national rep, but I'm not sure it's "national" enough to get you into Florida. What are your career aspirations, and where in Florida do you want to work?

At those prices, retake or don't go. Expensive option with excessively mediocre prospects.

I would wait to hear from UF - I'm in a similar situation. Best of luck with your decision!

If I stay in FL it would be South Florida...I currently live in Tampa but I have some good connections in Miami

Jordy - I was in your exact same position last year and I picked Tulane. PM me if you want to talk about it. :)
