Where should I go next fall? / Florida Law School Options?
« on: November 09, 2012, 09:48:30 AM »
Hi everyone. New to the forum.

I graduate from FAU (not prestigious at all) this December with a overall GPA of 3.68. My area of study is Criminology with a minor in Political Science (Major GPA of 3.8). It is my desire to eventually become a prosecuting attorney. I truly have no other ambition in the legal profession...ultimately this is what I truly want. My LSAT score was 167.  I am currently pregnant and due in May. I am not a traditional student. I waited to go to college until I was 23. I am married and already have a two year old son. My options are limited to South Florida. This is because my husband's job is here and we own a home in Coral Springs. My school options are limited to some pretty inferior schools. The only option I would consider would be UM.  Clearly I can't just take off to another state given my circumstances.

If I apply at UM next week I'm still looking at 120-160k debt (even with possible scholarship aid). Is it worth it in this economic market or should I look into getting a masters degree in a related field.  (note: the 10 year forgiveness program would not benefit me much given they will count my husbands income when figuring a monthly payment)
