One college vs another.

Postby Courtneyevon » Wed Jul 25, 2012 4:11 pm

I'm not sure if anyone is familiar with Florida colleges but do you know if there is an extreme difference between Broward College and Florida International University? I would like to attend an ivy league law school after I recieve my bachelors degree from one of these. I know neither one is "great" but is there a huge difference?... does it matter?

Outside of attending an Ivy League, or Ivy League equivalent, UG, it really doesn't matter where you go to college.

If you have the LSAT and GPA, that's all they care about. All else being equal, go to the school with the easier grading system.

I've heard FIU is better for Princeton Law School.

Also, Ivy League isn't really a valid distinction among law schools.

Yes, the 5 Ivy League law schools are good, but there are other equal options that aren't Ivy.

Most people say T14 around these parts.
