Stetson is located in the largest metro area (Tampa/St. Pete) with only one LS
Too bad UF and FSU grads come in and snap up jobs, so while it is the only school located there, that's not really saying much. From Stetson, biglaw (or what can be called biglaw, in Tampa/St. Pete) is pretty much out, plus with the massive glut of marginally employed UF and FSU grads, say goodbye to a lot of the other midsized firm jobs as well, the few that are out there. In addition, the small firms are not really hiring, and local government positions that used to go to Stetson grads, like PD, SA office, City Atty. office, etc. are all but at a hiring freeze. The situation is largely the same in Orlando if I'm hearing right.
Stetson would not be a great choice pre-ITE, and it's even worse now. People for some reason on this board always mention Stetson as an underrated TTT, but I really wonder how many of them are from Tampa or even FL. Come here and see some unemployed people who were median at UF. Then you'll know.
