Anyway, to contribute to the thread, FIU is absolutely the obvious answer. Undergrad doesn't matter, especially with the options you've been presented with. It's an easy school, and it's free, so take it. Living around the campus is fairly cheap too, so you'll save money there as well.

Go to an easy state school that gives A+'s or doesn't give A- grades.

Go somewhere that makes you happy or you will be burned out long before you get to law school.

No one minds elitist douchebaggery if its targeted toward law school admissions, but keep your undergrad bashing on College Confidential or something.


lololololol.

Generally easy state schools are the schools that might be free.. At least in my experience.

ETA: Oh, just reread OP.. Yeah go to FIU.

i'll give it to you. it comes across as awkward when read, though.

:shock:

It is well known that FIU is one of the toughest grading schools in Florida

One of my best friends went to FIU and ended up with like a 3.89 in a hard science. This is also one of the biggest idiots I know in terms of common sense. I know a couple of others at FIU who I am not as close to, but in speaking with them briefly they have never complained about academic rigor. So I might be wrong, but in terms of anecdotes I'm not just making it up :P

Uhh if you want into the MBA part for Harvard or Wharton, you'll need some really solid work experience, hopefully somewhere prestigious. This may be one reason to go where this will be maximized. Which do you want to do more? Law or business?
