Transferring / Re: Transferring from Puerto Rico

La Inter is actually the best law school in Puerto Rico.  Undergraduate, it is for gringos and UPR rejects.

General Board / Temple vs. Brooklyn

I need to make a decision by Wednesday!  I got scholarships at both!  I like NYC alot but I'm really interest in INTERNATIONAL LAW

Temple / Should I go to Temple?

I am deciding between Temple and Brooklyn Law.  Temple gave me a full scholarship and Brooklyn gave me 23k and loans.  What do you guys think of Temple, specifically in terms of getting NY jobs and international law opportunities?  Is Trial Advocacy and Legal Writing really that good?  How are Temple alumni?  What is the atmosphere of the school?

Minority Topics / Law School Style

I'm not a thug, I'm a 0L aspiring to Law School.  But I am a "Nuyorican" and I haven't seen anyone who dresses like me in law school.  I'm sorry, I just prefer Jordans to jesus sandals, I wear earrings, I like clothes that match and dressing fly.  Of course whenever I've visited schools I've gone in suits, because I thought thats just what you do in law school.  When I get there alot of people are wearing their everyday bummy clothes.  And it strikes me from these forums, and from my interactions at law school and with lawyers, that people in the legal profession are especially judgemental when it comes to appearance and style.  Obviously I know how to dress professionally, but in law school do people dress casually to go to class, and if so is it only "white people casual" vs. what someone like me would normally wear?  Are professors as judgmental as I suspect they are?  What are the limits to clothing style in law school, or rather what should I NOT wear in law school? 

Acceptances / TEMPLE VS BLS

What do people think?  Also, BLS offered me 24k per year and Temple offered full tuition.  If BLS came through with full tuition what would it be?
