Well, then maybe you aren't what the school's looking for anyways. I mean, come on, it needs people that will do well to help establish it more and more as the years progress. Just like every other law school has throughout history.

It doesn't matter if you go there or not, I don't care, but don't act like you know what you are talking about because some random blog you read. They said that the accredidation issue was to be decided after the decision was MADE, not after the MOVE was made. Now they are waiting on that info, which everyone believes they will stay accredited. And the only thing that will change people's minds is if they would lose the accredidation, which should soon be determined. Then they will have a vote and hey, that means they won't move, but that shows you they want what's best for the school.

Also, everyone isn't wanting to work in FL, just like everyone doesn't want to work in MI. It is a national law school, so students get jobs all over the country.

You think only places that do OCI are hiring Ave students?

And yes, they do place very well in gov, but don't believe me, I don't care. I'm just stating things that are true so people can better understand the answers that I am providing them with, any other questions?

I didn't say that, I said that the law community in FL is happy to see Ave moving down there and actually want to start recruiting now because they don't want to stay stuck with the choices that they have for people working in FL.

Also, Ave will stay a national law school and will start attracting people from the Caribbean, South America, and such for their LLM program.

Yes, the answer to that question is that B's heirs are non-existent, and if B is dead then B's heirs get nothing because they would not vest in the proper amount of time.

They are keeping ABA accredidation, if they were to lose it that would be the only thing to stop the move. There are many things that are good about this move, they are going to start an LLM program, and various other "centers" and such. I believe they are soon going to announce a new law journal thing too, or at least when they get to FL.

They are officially moving the summer of 2009.

Any other questions?

Ok to clear up some confusion, Ave Maria students will NOT be competing with these people because lawyers, judges, firms, etc in FL have already expressed happiness at the idea that htey will get to hire Ave students. One lawyer actually went as far to say that he was glad he doesn't have to hire anyone else anymore.

There may be other schools in FL, but they are just not as good as Ave is.

As far as when the move will be: officially summer 2009. They are currently forming transition teams to make the move smooth. Current 1Ls will graduate from Ann Arbor, people entering next year will graduate in Fl, and so forth. The move is supposedly a no-go if for some reason ABA says they will not keep the school accredited because that is a major concern, as it should be.

Also, the people that were promised to graduate in MI WILL graduate here, people that start next year were never promised that. I am glad to answer any other questions you might have.

Oh and also, representatives of the various legal communities in FL will be coming up here in the coming weeks to try to get current students to already start working for them (especially the guy that said he doesn't want to have to keep choosing the grads from the other schools).  Everyone from AA is allowed to keep their job, and apparently there is talk of a package they will get in order to help with their move.

Umm, I guess that's all I can think of right now that peoploe specifically asked. Feel free to ask anymore you want to know.

Well, I'm not sure about that. I know that we have a B curve, so i guess that's 3.0 which would mean that 50% have about that and 25% have higher and 25% lower, so only if you are in the bottom 25%? But I'm not sure about that. haven't heard many people talking about that actually. Also, they are decreasing scholarships since the school is becoming established, so I don't think that your number is correct. maybe call admissions and ask?
