Accepted to Ave Maria, Florida Coastal, and Charleston

Postby jbrewer202 » Thu May 23, 2013 8:54 pm

I am trying to decide where I want to attend, I live in Florida and want to go out of state because this will probably be my last chance to experience life outside of the Sunshine State. I am on wait list at mercer and I am really hoping to attend there in the fall, I have to send my deposit to Charleston soon if that is where I want to go.
I just wanted some of yalls input on which school you would attend. I have a 2.67 and a 150 with some serious life experiences and I know those are horrible scores, but I didn't want to attend a big school. I am leaning towards Charleston but I jsut wanted to hear some additional input before I send a check.

Thanks for your time

Please don't attend any of these schools. No one on this board is going to endorse any of these options unless you are going for free and have a guaranteed job lined up now.

I'm sorry but please don't attend these schools, especially one because you want to experience life outside Florida. If you want to work in Florida, go to school there at Florida or Miami for really cheap.

You won't get a job from these schools. Please don't send them money.

And "not going to a big school" is a terrible excuse for these schools. Please retake the LSAT. You won't regret it.

Take 2 months, study, and save yourself from debt prison for the rest of your life.

Don't attend any of these schools for any reason. No law firm, corporation, government, public interest organization, or any other remotely legal employer anywhere in the country will ever hire you if attend one of these schools, even if you pass the bar exam.

My thoughts exactly.

Every lounger who gets bored for 5 minutes:

"I think I'll create an alt, flame on-topic, and LULZ will ensue..."

That's why so many of these threads have run-away OP's, someone truly concerned with their future would be back saying "omg really?" and "tell me more!" but flames get distracted by the Cleavage thread....

All 3 of your options have strong barista and secretarial placement records. You do not want to go to any law school with a strong barista and secretarial placement record.

1 Biglaw graduate in a class of 999 is literally the most hilarious law-school statistic I've ever seen.

This is worth something. Whether it should be 25% of the ranking is obviously a joke, but it's worth something. Library space is very underrated.

Choosing to go to any of those schools will almost certainly be one of the worst decisions you've ever made. If you want to be an attorney: study much harder for the LSAT, and get into a much better school with a lot more money.

OP, assuming you aren't trolling us, another element of this equation to consider when evaluating your choices is that these law schools may close within several years. While this seems theoretical now, it's actually a huge issue for anyone considering attending. Each of these three schools are on the verge of total financial and pedagogic ruin due to declining applications and the status of economy.

This poses two major problems to anyone considering attending, even for free.

1) the law school could close while you are a student. The credits won't be transferable to a real school. You will have invested years and inevitably some money and not even get a JD.

2) the law school will close after you graduate if it doesn't while you are a student. This will essentially invalidate your JD. Whatever alumni network exists (could you call Florida Coastal grads "alumns" of anything?) will no longer be applicable, and there won't be an employment office or any resources to help you as a grad. Effectively, a waste of 3 years and an obsolete degree

Can the school actually close before current students have finished? That would seem to be grounds for getting refunded their prior years, wouldn't it? They are paying to earn that school's JD, not just for the courses.
