Unlike TLS members, many people believe that law school isn't T14 or bust.

That's because unlike TLS, some of the people here are actually successful lawyers and have had sex.

You made my day. Now, I'm going to wake up with a smile tomorrow morning.

Hey thanks for the advice.

There are a couple of ways I could do this. I could stay at home in South FL and go to either Miami, FIU, or Nova, with minimal COL.

Or I could go to either Case or Ohio State, assuming I am admitted to both and resume there, as I went to undergrad at a liberal arts school near Cleveland.

Or I could go to SLU and live with my girlfriend of three years with minimal COL

Or I could just start off new in Chicago at DePaul, Lansing at MSU, or any of the other schools I plan on hearing back from.

I'm not dead set on where I want to practice. My connections and foundation are probably best in south Florida, but I also wouldn't mind moving to saint louis or Cleveland. It's just a tough decision. All of that, plus the prestige and job placement of each of these schools.

It's just a very confusing and difficult decision.

Well, you actually do have a slight chance if you happen to be a URM...? (Puerto Rican, Mexican, Black)

If you do happen to be a URM, you do have a chance; however, if you are admitted, I highly doubt you would get any scholarship money.

Give it a shot. Worst that can happen would be a "no", in which you would still receive $$ from some good regional schools. Unlike TLS members, many people believe that law school isn't T14 or bust.

Hey everyone,

Just recently and happily ventured over here from TLS.

So here's my situation. I have been accepted to the following schools - scholarship follow the hyphen and are listed per year with stipulations.

Nova Southeastern - $18K - 2.7 GPA (Median)

Florida International - $0 (for now; I believe I will obtain the First Generation Scholarship of up to $5K) - In-state Tuition

Stetson - $12K - good academic standing 2.0 GPA

Miami - $0

Ave Maria - $35K - 3.0 GPA (Median)

St. Thomas - $28K - 2.5 GPA

DePaul - $15K - no stipulations

Michigan State - 25% Trustee's Scholarship - don't know stipulation yet

I am waiting to hear back from Emory, Saint Louis University, Indiana-Bloomington, Case Western, Ohio State, and Cincinnati. I think these schools will reject me other than SLU and Case Western. The only way I would attend SLU is with big $$$, but I doubt itll be anything more than 50%, if that.

I have a 3.1 and 156 LSAT. Not retaking

I live in South Florida, so Nova, FIU, Miami, and St. Thomas would have little to no COL.

As of now, what would you guys choose? I will update soon if I am admitted to any of these schools.
