Confused....... Tough choice to make Southern or Faulkner

Postby Antj88 » Wed Nov 09, 2011 12:50 am

Ok, I have this serious problem, and I need you guys advice. I'm a Sr. at Auburn University and I applied to a few law schools and I heard back from Faulkner, North Carolina Central, Southern University Law Center, FAMU, and Mississippi College. I see alot of people have bad mouthed Southern on the forum but they the only ones who have offered me the most money thus far, so my question for you guys is if I attend Southern or Faulkner will I have at least decent job prospects upon graduation? I haven't heard back from Ole Miss my first choice yet, but I don't want to waste three years of my life and end up jobless.

Do you have a job lined up after graduation? If not, it will likely not be in your best interests to attend these schools for anything more than free.

Have you been to lawschooltransparency.com?

They have employment data that would be worth taking a look at. Just go to the data clearinghouse and pick a school you're considering.

Don't sweat it, I applied with a 2.8 and ended up at a decent school. Retake the lsat and give yourself a real opportunity.

Just work hard it and you can probably break 160. I know you think the site is putting you down, but the schools simply aren't worth $ + 3 years of your life. If you can't get into a strong regional school and keep your debt low, it may be best to pursue other options.

But my biggest fear right now is what if those are my only choices, you know?

Agree with FTH. OP, if your concern is spending 3 years of your life in law school and ending up jobless, then you need to avoid these schools.
