Wow. What an unfriendly forum. Thanks for the few who actually came back with answers to my questions. To those who thought this was a flame: why would you bump this thread to the top? I hope you guys never get this sort of response if youre ever faced with a difficult decision in your lives.
Is it possible for someone to tell me exactly why one school its better than the other without being a sarcastic douche? seriously guys. I'm here humbly asking for just a few facts. Not too much to ask, is it?

I already gave you a serious answer.

These are really your only options. One of the schools you are looking at places less than half its class into full time lawyer jobs and the other won't say how many of their grads get full time lawyer jobs (source: --LinkRemoved--). You would be taking on over a hundred thousand dollars in debt to go to a school where you have, at best a 50/50 chance of being a full time lawyer. This doesn't even get into the fact that you will have a very very hard time paying off your debt with the type of salaries that grads from these schools get.

You really need to either retake the LSAT or reconsider law school. Right now, the options you have are not reasonable or financially feasible. Would you take on a bunch of debt for a car if you would have a very low chance of paying it off? Of course you wouldn't and that is why you shouldn't go to these schools.


If you're wondering why nobody will tell you one or the other it is because they are both bad choices and that is a fact. It would be like someone asking "hey, should I kill myself with a pistol or a shotgun?" Of course you're going to tell that person "you shouldn't kill yourself" rather than saying "you should go with the pistol because it's less messy than the shotgun."

You already got two facts

1. Both of those schools are terrible
2. You shouldn't go to either one

Also, donlocke, as a "long time lurker" you should've known damn well how this was going to go.

Hey, I'm from Jacksonville...not to be a douche or anything but I thought you should also take into account your scholarship from Florida Coastal isn't as good as you think. Is there a GPA requirement attached to it? If so, the schools are probably counting on many people to lose their aid. Even if that GPA looks easy to attain, it' different at every school because your grades are based on a curve in law school.
You may want to take a look at this article for details: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/01/busin ... rants.html

The boonicorn definitely deserves a spot in the TLS hall of fame. Like in the basement with all the BP proceedings.

take a look at the posts and threads about both of these schools and then you will see why people on here responded to your post.

If you want florida- then go to either FSU or UF. If that means you have to work another year in florida to get instate tuition- then do it.

also- at first i thought this was version three of the Nova or barry mega thread. but like a lot of the time, i was wrong.

People not from Florida cannot ever appreciate what it's like to know so, so many people who go to our beautiful state's many toilet law schools.

Off the top of my head (no google, I promise):
*Fla. Coastal
*Barry
*Ave Maria
*FAMU
*FIU
*Nova
*FAU (not sure; wouldn't surprise me)
