Have to say that what I saw of Gulfport was sketchy, so sketchy that I would call it ghetto. the girl who was the tourguide said she lived in downtown st. pete which is just a few minute drive. I went there and realized I had been there to visit a friend at resort there in june. its nice. she said most people live out at the beach or in downtown st. pete. I talked to the housing lady and the school owns an apartment complex and some houses very near the school. I guess there aren't a lot of classes on friday, so the campus seemed really empty. Everything I saw was very nice and the staff I talked to were great. I have nothing to compare my visit to, because stetson was my first visit. I will tell you that you probably won't see a scholarship unless you hit a 165 on the lsat. At least that was my understanding. the numbers I was given make it a very pricey choice. tampa is too far away, I think for practical communting but thats just my opinion.
Mer.. I got 30k/year with my 163 and lowish GPA, so I don't know about that haha.
CanadianWolf- I can't provide those, but I wouldn't spend much of my time there anyways. Campus is nice and you can see it on the website, but you would probably want to live more in St.Pete (easy commute, and Stetson has tons of parking) anyways. Tampa is a pretty far commute that I could only see justified by having a SO getting paid the big bucks to work downtown, because traffic is AWFUL.
