Choosing the Right Law School / Re: American WCL 1L Taking Questions

I think your school is overpriced and should give far more scholarships, do you agree?

Also are you sad that your school lags in placement when compared to its private brothers (SMU, Tulane)?

I have to agree that Tulane and SMU are superior to American.

Is Florida T1 or T2?

An MA from a top program will look impressive on your law school resume, but (more importantly) will distinguish you in your search for law jobs and when you become a lawyer. But, as others has advised before, do not go to school for your MA unless it is in a field you have a legitimate professional interest in.

California / Irvine?

Yeah. They are going to (or at least trying to) open a law school.

@ the guy who said FSU is academically light-years beyond UF?

I'm guessing you've never attended either one. UF > FSU in US News ranking. UF > FSU by lightyears in Tax law. UF > FSU significantly in environmental law. UF Law library > FSU law library by appx. 20% or more, including a vastly superior rare book room. FSU = only 25% of matriculated students in 2007 had an LSAT over 162.

Lets not even get into how abysmal the FSU faculty senate system, student government association, and administration staff are. UF, on the other hand, has one of the most pleasant and efficient staff that I've ever worked with.

UF's alumni network s outstanding across the nation. FSU's is moderate, and second best even in the south.

As an FSU alum, I could never recommend that school to anyone.

I think you misread his/her post. He never said FSU is academically light-years beyond UF. He actually wrote that UF is light years better than FSU for undergrad.

I think his point, which he supported with convincing data, was that FSU looks to be academically superior as a law school to UF (your anecdotal experiences with the pleasant staff at UF notwithstanding).

Is it fair to say that both have really strong alumni bases, and neither is truly national?

This is basically true.
