Choosing the Right Law School / Seattle vs FIU
« on: April 26, 2012, 07:21:34 AM »
Hey, it's getting pretty close to decision time, and the advice givers around me are pretty split on what they think I should do.  I've narrowed my choices between Seattle Law and FIU.  One for the location (Seattle) and one for the price(FIU).
I got into U of Miami, but after recent bar passage rates, and advice from local lawyers, FIU is a much better financial decision.  After scholarships it's going to cost about 11k a year to attend, and living in Orlando now, the move won't be so difficult.  However, I dont know if I like the idea of being in Miami for the next 3 years, or staying in Florida to practice law.

Seattle is going to run me about an extra 12k a year over FIU, it's really far away, and I'm slightly nervous about the constant gloomy weather.  However, I really like the city, and I feel like I'm running out of time to experience these types of life changing adventures.

Any advice would be appreciated, especially of you attend either of these schools, or you faced a similar decision. Thanks!
