Syracuse FT vs. Stetson PT vs. IU-Indy PT

Postby disconnected » Wed Apr 25, 2012 12:12 pm

I have deposited at Syracuse. I have received calls from Stetson and IU-Indy today within 10 minutes of each other. BTW taking the LSAT again is not an option. I will not wait another cycle. $8k per year need based grant from Syracuse makes the total cost of attendances equal. I currently live 120 miles from Stetson, 800 miles from Indy and 1200 miles from Syracuse. I have family in Florida, but lots of friends in Indiana, as I worked there 9 years. I will convert to full time at Stetson after the Fall 2013 semester if I have a 2.8+ GPA. Both programs will finish up at the same time, May 2015. But Indy would take 4 years in the PT program. I am over 40, if that enters the equation. I have a masters degree with a 3.79 GPA, but that was 10 years ago, does that make a deference with PT vs. FT. Will I need to ramp back up in academia?

My wife would make $3k per month with the offered job in Syracuse. She would only potentially make $1200 per month in St. Pete / Stetson area and in Indy she could make around $1800 per month. My realistic goals would be Big Law if in the top 10 of the class or public defender / private practice criminal defense if not in the Top 10. I have a slight preference for Florida due to climate, but the prospects of a higher salary in the Indiana and New York is equally appealing.

Do. Not. Go. To. Law. School.

Since you are over 40, I can see why you don't want to retake the LSAT, but really all these options are awful. Awful Awful. What was your job before?

Got admitted FT to Stetson within an hour of PT acceptance. Stetson is well know in FL. Considering Elder Law too.

Solved.
