No response to my objective data + retarded personal attack = you fail. Better learn argumentation better than this, d00d. Enjoy the bottom half at UVA.

However seeing your avatar for extended periods of time is giving me some really bad gas, so I'm bout to go drop something off in the swamp... The fact you went ot UF undergrad is pretty gross.


Was PK not a UF 1L before transferring to Michigan?

You do realize there are people who have excellent numbers but want to avoid the Northeast-DC douchebaggish culture exemplified in your posts, no?

Edit: Mich is super gagngster, I didn't see your profile. What made you transfer if not for the reasons I mention?

It tells me you're here to flame....GO AWAY

UFBoldasLove (a native gator) is a 1L here and she could speak more about the extensive research she put when deciding on schools. People looking at UF (or any school) should really leverage acceptances to get full employment lists from the career services office. Job prospects >>>> faculty quality, and the two aren't linearly related, so I wouldn't focus so much on whether or not they've lost some key faculty members in recent years. You don't need to take misbuble's list to heart, but you should go out and find some actual information before you call them out for being more flame than substance. They can't succeed in freaking out people who've actually researched their decision enough to either verify or refute what they said.

It tells me that he wanted a NYC big law position, which (according to his word) he has accomplished.

Which ties back to my previous post as well.

Honestly. Listent to observationalist, he goes to Vanderbilt. If you look at my previous list of suggested schools, it was number 1 for the southeast outside of T14. I guarantee your job prospects are better at Vandy in FL than UF.

Edit: Vandy looked badass, was one of my top choices too.

You seem like such a snob misbuble. You need a lesson in humility.

I am not in any way concerned with job prospects.

And even if I was, I wouldn't be discussing it on this thread.

misbuble....

As a UF grad who's at UVA Law now, I hope you aren't bringing your Gator hatin' here...

Anyways, there's no need to trash UF and Gainesville. They are what they are. UF is the best school in the state (make of that what you will....it's not impressive, but for the Florida job market it's very helpful) and Gainesville is a decent college town that becomes great on Football weekends. I won't lie.....I think Charlottesville is a drastically better city than Gainesville.

Also, let's try and keep the good reputation of UVA Law students intact :D . I don't want you giving my school a bad name :(

everyone stop the bashing. if you're bashing then you probably didn't apply here, and that's totally fine, just get the hell outta the thread and take your opinion somewhere else. thanks.

Two reasons:

1) Market portability, which I accomplished -- we'll see if this gig stays IN THIS ECONOMY.
2) Better shot at academia \ federal clerkships

I think any generalization about reputation must be comparative among schools who compete in the market. Otherwise, what's the purpose of a reputation? I think Steton's reputation is far overstated. While I would place it as arguably the third best school in Florida, I don't think I would EVER advise someone to choose between Stetson over FSU/UF, especially with the prospect of in-state tuition. I'd also like to know what requirements are attached to that scholarship.

i think his is top third if i remember correctly


This isn't even a choice. Stetson at full-price is obscene.


Stetson full price is obsene. The requirement for keeping my Stetson full scholarship is top 40%. If I'm not in the top 40% after the first year, apparently I'm not cut out for law and I would be finding something else to do with my life.

Pretty crazy. This is perhaps the first tangent in the history of message boards.
