General Board / Re: FSU or Miami... Please weigh in

You need to weigh your career goals when thinking about a school.  I have been told that FSU is an excellent school if you are planning to practice criminal law in the state of Florida.  I am not sure whether Miami has an "area of expertise" or a reputation in a certain area of law.  Also think about where you will be most comfortable living for the next three years of your life, and possibly in the future.  If you know that you want to be in Miami, it would be best to go to law school there and start maikng connections with those who could be your possible employers in the future.  If you want to be in Tallahassee, or maybe even in GA, then think about FSU.  Also, you may want to take the school's rank into consideration.  I have no idea what they are for those schools, but rank can be a factor for some employers

I am looking to relocate, but just recently graduated and only have a few months experience.  i currently work for a firm, but as a staff attorney, not an associate.  i contacted one of these companies that is pretty much guaranteeing that they can get me a job, because i graduated from a high-ranked school.  But their service is expensive ($500+).

Is anyone familiar with these services that charge a fee for firm contacts?  Are they effective/worth the money?  Any advice is appreciated, but i hope to hear from someone who has actually used one of the companies.

Thanks! :)
