...where you go should depend on where you want to practice (Fl vs. MI). If you aren't going to practice in either state (or region), Coastal is the better choice.

A few people also mentioned this? Why would this matter?
Say I intend to practice in NY, but end up going to Yale... (of course Yale is T1, but I'm just not sure why attending a school in a diff state would matter).

I'm actually a NY resident.
My main concern is whether I would be able to sit for the Bar exam (in NY). I understand that FAMU is not a reputable law school. However, I really don't have many choices...

No offense, but this plan completely ignores reality. FAMU most likely teaches to the Florida bar and nearly all of its residents get jobs in Florida. To move to NY to take the bar would be career suicide unless one of your family members is an attorney who will give you a job. You're going to have a up-category-5-mountain battle trying to get an employer in a distant region to hire you as a grad of a provisionally-accredited law school. Not saying it's impossible, but it's certainly unwise and unrealistic.


Well, obviously my LSAT scores weren't high, and I was only accepted by FAMU and Cooley. I'm still being wait-listed by few other tier 4 schools, but other than that I don't have much choices.

And yes, I've taken the LSAT twice but didn't improve my score by much.

In this circumstance, what other advice can you give?

Thanks Galex, that's good to know. :D

Obviously I don't want to get screwed-over if the school loses the status for some reason.

Thanks Raven, but where did you get this info? I cannot find it anywhere, not even at abanet.org..

And btw, I do plan to take the bar exam in NY. Would the different state jurisdiction have different rulings regarding this?

Hi all, I will be attending Florida A&M this Fall. Now, this law school is provisionally approved, but what would happen if (God forbid) it loses its "provisionally approved" status while I am in attendance? Would I also lose my eligibility to take the Bar exam upon graduation?

Please advise, and thanks in advance.

North Carolina Central / Living near NCCU

Hi, I am looking for an apartment near NCCU campus. Can anyone recommend a location that's near the campus (or relatively convenient, meaning walking distance to/from bus stops, etc...).

My main concerns are safety, convenience, and noise.

I really appreciate any inputs. Thanks in advance

Every professor at my school that I spoke with admits LS doesn't really prepare you for the bar.  You almost always have to take a bar review course to make sure you'll pass.  Even a genius like Eugene Volokh took a bar prep course just to be safe (yes, he told me himself).

Yeah, this is so true, especially if you'll be taking the bar in a different state. Most schools will probably focus on their own state's bar.
