St. Thomas (Florida) / Re: Anyone in the Fall 1l class?

I too have sent a deposit, but still am unsure if  I will be attending STU. I keep going back and forth as I hear less than favorable things about STU and then also RWU (up  in Rhode Island). There are a lot of things I like about STU amd the added bonus of Miami weather is exciting to a grizzled New Englander such as myself.

Recently, I spoke with a family friend who is an attorney at a amjor firm in West Palm, he said, and I quote, "the West Palm firms won't touch them (STU grads)."

This dismayed me. I know the school is on the make and the Dean is working to bring the place up, but I wondered how long that negative perception would be around and if it is more prevalent than we have been told. And if that really matters in the bigger scheme of things. Either way, too much marketing from schools, not enough cold hard data. I ask for specifics (such as statistics on firms that hired recent grads, and etc.) and all I get are generalities, "XYZ big firm has hired our gradutes in the past..."etc.

How is everyone else feeling about the place and process?
Send a shout, we just may end up as classmates.
