just wanted to ask what propelled you to choose FSU as your law school. Why FSU>UF if you applied to both? I work M-F 8-5 and can't really come see it (I live in Tampa, though, so I've been there 1 time before for the USF/FSU game.) So I'd love some info!
PS- I didn't like UF too much because it seemed very Overly competitive and lacked a social aspect that I love about college!
I chose FSU because the atmosphere there was great. I went up there a few weeks ago to hang out with the person I will be living with who will be a 2L. We went tubing down a nearby river with about 30 other law students, and I had a great time. Everyone there was really friendly and I seemed to fit in with their group right away. I know some UF students, as well as a lot of attorneys that went to UF, and I have just never gotten the same vibe from them. I'm sure there are some great people at UF law, but I just got a great feeling from FSU. On top of all this, FSU is a great school. I applied to UF, and would have gotten in, but I withdrew my application after I was accepted to FSU and a few other schools. Hopefully this was helpful.
Whoa. You went down Bear Paw (I assume) with 30 people. You guys are hardcore. My usual group of 10 can barely stay together! haha!
Yeah, it was a challenge. People tend to stick close to the raft with all the beer in it though. Imagine that.
