I'd like to go to Stetson, however I think this may be unobtainable. I'm not looking at schools such as Barry/FAMU (say what you want but they're accredited and ABA approved-plus Public and in-state tuition)/Nova Southeastern/Gulf Coast/Univ of Arkansas/Loloya/Mich State/WVU/Louisville/Charleston/Charlotte/etc-Note: Most of these are best on my LS Predictor possibilities. I'd like to stay in FL and based on my lower numbers I'm actually thinking that FAMU may be my best option (close to family and friends/instate tuition/they're accredited). But Barry in Orlando is also looking good too-although Private tuition.
Just figured I'd share. Yes I know a lot of you are better than me, etc...so please spare me of that. LOL
FL resident here.
For FL, you have to get into UF, FSU, Miami with close to full tuition, Stetson with close to full tuition, or don't go. This is not elitism, it is the economy. The market is glutted with 11 total schools, T14 plus Vandy and Emory people who want to work here, etc. Median kids at UF are having a tough time. Local govts. are barely hiring. The housing and tourism-based economy is terrible.
Barry - Indicative of the respect it commands, 4(!) firms come for OCI. Not respected. A joke and a swindle. Orlando may be a nice place to draw unemployment from, however.
FAMU - Recently accredited because it has been rocked by scandals. An embarrassment in tax-payer subsidized education, especially the Shirley Cunningham fen-phen scandal. Employers do not take FAMU seriously.
Nova - Another joke. One poster on TLS knows the recent Law Review editor (or someone on exec. board?), who is unemployed. This should be indicative of prospects for the rest of the students.
Hopefully the NA boost can get you in at UF or FSU.
