I would really appreciate ANY advise and input!!!
I have been admitted to both, Miami offered 5k a year scholarship and Florida $6 first-year grant and residential tuition. I know, it seems like no-brainer at the first sight, UF is higher ranked and less expensive school. But there other factors to consider for me. First,  I'd really like to get a job in a big or medium size law firm in Miami-Ft. Lauderdale-Palm Beach area, and I heard that UM places well in those cities, while many UF grads go to Orlando, Tampa, Jacksonville, etc, but I do not consider moving to those parts of the state. Could the UF location be a disadvantage for securing a good job in Miami since it doesn't provide the same networking opportunities as UM, which is right here, in the city?
And second, I'm not sure how well I will fit in Gainesville, small college town with strong football-oriented culture. I am 27, lived in big cities all my life, and don't like football games.
Once again, and advise is welcome!

Studying for the LSAT / Does anyone else have similar numbers as me?
« on: October 25, 2008, 10:34:26 AM »
Is there anyone else in my boat? I got 155 on October LSAT, which is lower than my lowest diagnostics, with average being 162. My GPA is 3.95 and I have very strong personal statement and 2 good academic recommendations.
Like most of us here, there is 3 choices for me: 1 Give up law school all together? Well, it was my dream.
2. Keep whatever I got and apply? I feel its gonna shot the door of too many good schools for me.
3. Retake it in December? I know there good chances for me to get better score because I bombed Oct. test from being to nervous and couldn't get my thoughts together until forth section. But even if I do better, It's gonna be late application which decreases my admission chances and practically prevents from receiving any financial aid.
Just want to know if there anyone else in the same position as me with similar numbers. What are going to do guys? I will really appreciate any input!!!

Personal Statement / Please!!! I really need help!
« on: October 18, 2008, 11:23:24 AM »
Please, can someone take a look at my personal statement?
I really need help, English is not my native language and I live in the community where almost none speaks fluent English, so it is VERY hard for me to find readers/reviewers.
Guys, please, anyone! I would REALLY appreciate any reviews...

Personal Statement / how did I do?
« on: October 17, 2008, 03:43:01 PM »
Just finished my personal statement, but have no clue how strong it is...
I have high GPA (3.95), I don't know my LSAT score yet, but expect it to be on the law side, since I could hardly break 160 on my diagnostics. So I want to stress my personal statement the most to outweigh law score.
Can someone please review it!
Also I can give my feedback for anyone who needs one.
