Nope. At least with a UF degree and some manageable debt you're employable. A Nova JD is a black mark on your resume forever.
Remember, it's only a good deal if you can get a job as a lawyer afterwards.
...How can educational attainment be what you refer to as a "black mark" on your resume?
Obv. Having a JD doesn't make you unique when applying for a legal job. Going to one of the worst schools in the country indicates that you were A- one of the worst applicants in the country B- lacked the judgement to go to a decent school and C- were taught by the worst professors in the country.
There are literally 10+ law schools in Florida and Nova is bottom of the barrel. Do you really think it's a good idea to pay to go to a school whose peers are Barry, St. Thomas, and FAMU? When there are T14, Vandy, Emory, UF, FSU, Miami, and Stetson grads competing in the same (already saturated) market? When a Nova grad lines up against any of the above, yes, the Nova JD is a black mark.
