It's a Tier 3 school in an attractive market (in the sense of being a cool place to live) that has NO really good law schools and only 2 superior law schools in the same state.

I've always said this, so I'm glad I got a chance to bring it up ITT.



UF/FSU arent "really good" i guess which means t14 but I'd say youre underestimating their weight relative to Stetson in the state of FL. And Tampa/Gulfport arent exactly attractive markets if you use the words true meaning.

I disagree. The more literally you mean the word "attractive," the truer it is.


Elaborate.

1. No scholarship stipulations.

2. It's in the area you want to work.

3. You want to be a lawyer.

This is 100% how I feel as well.

But OP, also keep in mind that even a free T3 isn't free because you'll have living expenses.

I can only spend a few minutes scouring google for hot tampa girls before I start to feel creepy, but take my word for it: it's a truly lovely place. Maybe you're at Boalt or Stanford, but I'm in ice-cold hell right now.

If I were forced to choose between a career as a biglawyer in Chicago or an ADA in Tampa for the rest of my life, I'd opt for the latter. That's just me.
