Someone on fb said they were trying to finish their ps, and ave maria was one of their schools they were looking at. At first I though maybe I should warn her, then I realized if you are just now finishing your ps in march... I can't help you.

For all the crap people get on tls for making poor LS choices, we're still pretty ahead of the game compared to many non-tlsers

No. The only FL schools worth it, even with a full scholarship, are UF/FSU/Stetson/Miami. Everything else isn't even worth the forgone wages, aside from the fact you'll probably lose your scholarship.

Its the opportunity costs, which is exactly why I am so vehement against sticker at UM and Stetson. 200k in debt plus, at the bare minimum, 3 years of 30k full time work...wow.

Can I just say in all seriousness... or as much as possible: that hippo has a sweet goatee.

Also, pizza stigma is a running joke for ave maria - it's even funnier that it's a highly moral Catholic school at the same time.

Man, a fox news link (it was the first google result) and a resemblance of defending Catholic schools in my earlier posts... I don't like where my online persona is going.

Even funnier than that is that a supposedly moral school would force its students to accumulate debt that they have little to no chance of paying off.

I also envy the hippo's goatee.

OP, if you aren't choosing between UF, FSU or a full ride at UM/Stetson, I beg you to search through TLS. There are hundred of posts detailing the hierarchy and realities of Florida schools. If you haven't already, I am sure you will find them hugely enlightening.

I'm telling you I've been to this town; it's pretty nice despite the fact that it's literally in the middle of nowhere (no one can hear you scream.... lol). Every there kind of acts like the children of the corn - a little too nice, "come stay with us... foreverrrr..." I dunno it was creepy for me. The law school is in North Naples, nice area, don't know the building.

Here's a reason: Having $200,000 in loans with a $40,000 salary, or worse, no legal job at all.


How do you guys find the statistics for the typical salaries for Miami graduates?

Law salaries are bimodal, there is next to no biglaw in Miami, and what there is is snatched up by T14 graduates who like sun and hot Cuban models.

I realize that T14 is the lion that eats before the rest, but I'm looking at the best statistics I had the time to find (--LinkRemoved--) and though the reporting is low, there is some reporting of graduates earning six digit figures. How does that reconcile?

Here is a very good rule of thumb for Florida Law schools: the only ones worth going to are in BCS AQ conferences (UF = SEC)(FSU + UM = ACC).

9 times out of 10, you want a school that competes for the Governor's Cup (UF or FSU). If you a) have a good scholly, b) want to remain in Miami, and c) have connections, then Miami can also be added to the list. Stetson is a crapshoot, but still quasi respected in the NorthEastern quadrant of the state... Run like hell from all the others. FAST. And don't look back. Knock someone over to slow'em down if you have to.
