Transfer from BarryLaw to UF

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Jan 27, 2013 9:21 pm

I'm looking for someone who has transferred from Barry to UF.

Specifically, I've heard rumor of 2/3L's currently at UF who commuted from Orlando to G'Ville for at least their first semester of 2L. Is this even possible? It doesn't seem so. (google has the drive 2 hours each way).

Anyone think its possible..........err plausible?

My initial reaction is a resounding NO. The idea that you could commute your 2L year from Orlando to Gville would be unrealistic. However, I don't know you. So, I have no idea what you're capable of. However, here are some thing to consider:

1) A 2L transfer will need work experience to pad their resume to have any shot at gainful employment.
2) A 2L transfer will need to pull very solid grades to have any shot at gainful employment.
3) Commuting will be very expensive 4+ hours in the car a day will mean major gas money AND tolls (sun pass frequent flyer miles?)

I can't picture having the time to study for top grades, work part time to build a resume, and drive 4 hours. Honestly, most people would be lucky to do one of those three things successfully.

PM if you want to talk more.

Why would you be commuting?

And chances of getting in are incredibly slim anyway. UF takes a small transfer class.

With that said, I commuted from Tampa to Gainesville for grad school. There was always some fire or accident that added extra time on the drive. It sucked, but I had a jerb + family/friends/bf in Tampa. I would still do it all over again because Gainesville is a horrible place to live.
