Florida Coastal Law School Question...I Need some opinions

Postby CNUcrazy09 » Tue Dec 29, 2009 10:08 pm

Hey guys,

I just got an email today from the Dean of Admissions at FCL. He offered me a $15,000 scholarship. Can anyone tell me anything about this school? Positive or negative? I went to a website and saw that this school is second tier...is that right? Would it be worth going here? I am already looking at another second tier school but as far as education goes how is the academic selection? I read on another TLS post that someone had mentioned that this was a good school. Does this still hold true? I appreciate your help. Thanks.

Simply put, I don't believe that FCL is a good school.

and I said that in the least offensive way possible...

Florida Coastal is one of the worst schools in Florida and their are lots of pretty bad law schools in Florida. It is nowhere near being in the 2nd tier. Are you from Florida? If so what are your numbers? If you cant get into UF/FSU or Miami id look at Stetson or FIU. Nowhere else in Florida is worth the tuition.

FCU is a 4th tier school on a good day.

I got a similar letter from Phoenix which is owned by the same for-profit company (I live in Jacksonville so Coastal knew better). I email this link in response after they kept harassing me. They hire what are essentially telemarketers working on a bonus system to troll for applicants. Although there are FCSL grads who have jobs, they are few.

On the up side: One of my friends is in charge of OCI for a major east Coast law firm and she says that they have started OCI at Coastal due to political pressure from professors and alum. They meet with the single top student in every single class now (although they don't usually hire him).
