Your poll will help me decide where I go to school!

Postby Dream Machine » Sun Apr 01, 2012 6:16 pm

So my cycle has ended for the most part, and I have narrowed down my choice of schools that I have been accepted to, which are in the poll. I eventually would like to work in Florida. I realize
job prospects are a full-fledged horror show in Florida, but I have wanted to go to law school since middle school, and I love South Florida. I have no undergraduate d e b t and have worked for a year to save up some money. The result of this poll will ultimately help me decide what I do next year. Retake

Those options all suck IMO.

*Take the LSAT as many times are you need to. Reapply.
Get UF's 42k scholly next cycle. Get a full scholly elsewhere. Or go T14.
Profit.

1. I would be happy making about 60K at the peak of my earnings.
2. I am from FL, hence the being able to commute to Nova in the poll.
3. Since when is it T19? What are the 5 other schools?

Are you above one of UVa's medians (170, 3.86)? If not, EDing next year won't make a difference.

25k/year at miami might not be so bad. I'm not sure what their tuition is, and I don't know how reasonable the stip is given their curve. But if their tuition is like 40k, that's only 45 for tuition. You might be able to get by with 70k debt or less depending on your savings. If you want to live in South Florida, you might strongly consider that option.

K. Miami should be out, then. Top 1/3 is a horrible stip.

He voted r e t a k e. You just can't type the word because of the mod's april fools thing. It turns r e t a k e into "You should go to law school this cycle."

Doesn't seem like ED would work out without a r_e_t_a_k_e.

I am aware of the bias against lower-ranked/unranked schools, but no one thinks going to Nova with 22K/year is a good idea? Is it at least better than UF at sticker? I would be able to live at home if I went there.
