Florida coastal or barry university?

Postby Nhsgilpen2009 » Sat Mar 23, 2013 8:42 pm

Could anyone tell me the strengths and the weaknesses between the two and which one might be harder to get into?

I'm going to take your Barry v. FL Coastal as a sign you want to be in Florida. Neither is a great choice. You have less than a 40% chance of graduating with a job that requires a JD. If you're absolutely dead set on becoming an attorney, I'd say take Barry. This is mostly due to Barry having (marginally) better employment figures, BAR passage rate, and being in Orlando (which is a freaking awesome city).

DO NOT PAY STICKER. You will NOT graduate with a job worthy of those debt loads. If that's your only option, just don't go to law school.

If u take the LSAT asleep you'll get a score better than required for both of these schools. If you really wanted to go, Barry is a better choice, but--and I can't stress this enough--it's like choosing between rotten food or paper/plastic as a source of nutrition.

If you want to stay in florida, don't settle for anything less than UF/FSU.....or maybe miami if u dont mind practicing there.

If you have a BA and are homeless, you can get three years of room and board and meals.

Also looking at Lsn with people similar to me those are the t4/5 acceptance schools, unless they look at my work history and the life obstacles I have overcome

Could you retroactively withdraw from all your freshman year classes? I don't know much about the process, but people on TLS have talked about having semesters whipped off their transcripts because they ended up withdrawing from school for one reason, or another.

Why selling yourself so short?? Based on your original post you haven't taken the LSAT and your recent GPA/GPA trend indicate you obviously aren't stupid, so why the assumption of an abysmal LSAT score?

Looking at LSN if you pop in 2.0-3.0 and a 170+ LSAT score you can see people got into WUSTL, UCLA, gtown, etc. 160+ into regional schools (UGA, William and Mary, etc). This is just a cursory glance, I strongly recommend you take a look though!

Splitter cycles are exceedingly difficult to predict, so I can't say what will happen in your case, but study like it's your full time job, crush the LSAT and see what happens.

In the meantime, please pick your head up. Don't resign yourself to 2 truly awful schools for no reason at all...

Why law school? Please don't take out $200k+ to attend either of these scam schools.

I can't speak about Florida Coastal, but I knew a guy that went to Barry a number of years ago. What is he doing now? Some marketing job in Minneapolis that he could be doing with an AA degree. He was none too pleased with his education. Other than that, I know nothing about either school.

Well at least he got a job. With a J.D., securing that marketing position must have been an uphill battle. :(

He might have been a little dishonest on his resume and left it off.

You haven't even taken the LSAT? Then this is silly.

Also, if these are the only schools you can get into, you shouldn't go to law school.
