Graduating from UF, employment will be there. It's good to be on your guard, but don't buy into the TLS hysteria. I'm a 3L at FSU and I don't know one person from FSU Law that has graduated and been unable to find work, while UF is still the top dog in the state. Good luck.
Lawschooltransparency.com suggests that your anecdata is wrong
Maybe so, and perhaps I should take a look, but I'm speaking from first hand experience.
I do not know ONE person from FSU Law who has graduated and couldn't find any work. Not ONE. I know a guy that was at the bottom of the class, and even he has a job.
Of course, I'm not saying there aren't people from FSU/UF Law looking for employment. I'm sure there are those exceptions; I certainly don't know everyone's 411. I just find it important to note that I can't think of one person that hasn't found a job after graduating from FSU, given all the people I know who have.
Even the TTTs can land gigs in South FL. Yes, I'm speaking from experience too. One of the larger firms in South FL is almost entirely Nova grads, believe it or not, and I even saw someone in that particular firm with a JD from Coastal, lol. And I know two people who just graduated FIU who have jobs, neither who were even near top of the class.
So, here's my conclusion: if you've graduated from FSU or UF and absolutely CANNOT find a job within a year after graduation, your credentials are either beyond miserable or you simply are not doing enough hustle. That's my general opinion, but I'm sure there may be some "shitty luck/terrible market" exceptions. I just don't know any personally.
