Law School Applications / Re: my ex got into a better school - ughh

One thing about this sequence of posts stands out to me. Unless I missed it both times I read the original post, I see no indication of gender for the poster or the ex. However two people now have assumed that the original poster is a she and the ex is a him. Quite interesting.

That's what I noticed too.  :-\

It is written very effeminate. The "ughh" gives it away. Men don't write "ughh." Plus, I don't think a man would have to project his feelings about such a situation.

Thank you all for your input. I guess it was a no brainer. If only Stetson was a public school....but I do not think it would be in my best future financial interests to take out 150k-ish and expect to make 40k straight out of law school. Unless someone posts a verifiable horror story regarding Akron. Besides the fact that I am leaving the sunshine state to live in a city known for it's polymer.

You might be able to get the same caliber job coming out of Akron, but it will almost def. be in Ohio....

I wouldn't discount Stetson so quicky, it is a good school with good placement, and if you want to return to Florida, it seems like the obvious choice.  If you want to go into public interest, look into whether Stetson has a LARP....
Funny how you use "discount" and "Stetson" in the same sentence. Their placement is on par with Akron and I would be able to return to FL with my Akron degree and compete for a PD job as mentioned earlier. PD's in Florida come from all over the country, just like it's general population.

Is public defender work considered public interest?

What is your home country?

It says home "county." A county in Florida.

Aww c'mon, you edited didn't you?  :P
No, but if it makes you feel better, I lived in England for 2 years.

Stetson has a top-notch trial law program, far better than their rank would lead you to expect.  If you want to be a PD, I would absolutely think hard about them.  I don't know much about Akron, though. 

Bonus:  Stetson is a beauiful campus in a beautiful city.
Yeah, Stetson rocks, I know. I've been in St. Pete/Tampa plenty of times. I've seen that they are ranked #1 for trial advocacy and #3 for legal writing, according to USNWR. But, if I want to be a PD, then 150k debt will be very hard to pay off. That's why I'm looking cheap, because I'm not expecting big money.

I'm doing Akron for the exact same reason...but I only have to keep a 2.5 after year one to get year two covered.  But, I still need a 3.3 for the third year.  I figure worst case scenario I owe in-state tuition for a year.  I could have gone to some decent tier 2's and low Teir 1's but it's just not worth the debt in my eyes.
Nice. I have to get a 2.3 my fall semester to get spring semester covered. Have you visited Akron yet?

Law School Applications / Re: Lem dies!?!???

Say hello to the beginning of the end.

The show went into syndication earlier this week with Spike TV.

I predict that the next season of the Shield will be the last.

Lem will come back as a "spirit" only seen to Shane a.k.a Cletus Van Damme and play on his conscience. Vic will spend the next season searching for Lem's killer, and when he finds out it's Shane, Vic will kill him. At that point Vic will turn himself in and confess to everything (the money train, killing Terry, etc.). He'll be prosecuted, convicted, jailed, and Ronnie will go free as Vic will protect him. Clean cut and simple.

No way. That show is anything but clean, cut and simple. There will be crazy twists.

Akron-full scholarship! I must maintain a 3.3. Even if I don't, I will be an Ohio resident after 12 months so I am looking at 14k/yr in tuition in fees for only 2 years. The irony is that I just applied because it was free, but now they are my top choice.

What is the curve like?

Pretty tough. The past 3 years, it has ranged from the top 15-20% receive a 3.3 or above.
