I would go with FSU. Don't plan on it sounds like you want to practice in Florida so why bother? FSU has a better national reputation IMHO.

To answer your original question: If you are decided between the two I would pick Whittier. It is in California which has clearly better weather than Michigan. Nationally, it has a better reputation out of the two (in my humble opinion). Granted I am from the East Coast but Cooley typically gets joked about a lot...Whittier isn't usually the 1st choice when someone is cracking a law school joke. Just my opinion. Best of luck!

I'm still stuck between a few schools. Money is a huge concern...I'm not sure I want to go the biglaw route and I have a few "fall back" jobs. I'm not picky about where I practice. The amounts listed are scholarships. Thanks guys!!!

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Getting Married while in Law School?

Honestly, if I chose to get married while I was in law school, I probably would want to just go somewhere nice for a long-weekend/week during the 1l summer get married there and have a reception for family and friends but then again I also realize women have a slightly different perspective on these issues.   

That is exactly what I want but my fiancee and I have big families who want a more traditional wedding. We shall see who prevails. Thanks for the insight everyone!

Incoming 1Ls / Getting Married while in Law School?
« on: April 08, 2009, 09:08:15 AM »
I'm an engaged 0L. I don't have a wedding date set yet but I wanted to get some insight from current law students on when the best time to have the wedding would be. I am considering my 1L summer because I'm assuming whatever job I have will not be as intense as my 2L summer when I am considered more valuable. Are winter breaks out of the question? I'm guessing 1L winter is definitely out. Should I wait until I graduate? I'm worried I will be too busy studying for the bar/ starting a job in the 1st year out. Does anyone have any experience planning a wedding during law school? My fiancee is flexible too. Thanks guys!

What school for the scholarship/which one are you waiting on if you don't mind me asking? PM if you like:)

Also, I would do ED only if scholarship money does not matter to you since you don't know what your aid package will look like and if accepted you won't be able to use other offers for leverage.

I went on a tour today. Business casual is definitely the way to go. The kid in the full suit looked like they were trying too hard. The kid in sloppy jeans and a tee...looked sloppy. I'm glad I read this post for reassurance.

That's what I am saying...

These people are flames. they'll argue with anything I say, no matter how correct it is. I am never right about anything I say. U did the right thing.

If only there were some other way to dress other than 1) suit, 2) business casual, 3) sloppy jeans/tee.  Oh well...

That is just one example of what I saw. It is not like there was a big group of people for me to describe some other outfits worn.

I went on a tour at a southern school and people did not dress up as much as those at the northen schools I visited...I found it a bit strange.

They are both pretty quick once you go into review. I think I knew in less than 2 weeks. I found out my decisions through status checker for both.
