Law School Applications / Re: T25 vs. top 10% in T26 - 50

For undergrad, UF is light years better than FSU. But, academically speaking, FSU law is clearly superior to UF law.

As a side note, your odds of making it to BIGLAW in Chicago or NY from any Florida law school are slim unless you are at the top of your class.

?

UF
25-75 LSAT: 155-161
41% acceptance rate
Student to Faculty ratio: 17.6 to 1

FSU
25-75 LSAT: 158-161
24% acceptance rate
Student to Faculty ratio: 13.8 to 1


As a side note not necessarily related to academic quality, FSU also beats Florida in employment numbers:
UF Law  (employed nine months after graduation): 87.3%
FSU Law (employed nine months after graduation): 95.6%

The Inn at Penn is the best you will do by campus. Watch your back in that area of Philly.

Is Pat Robertson based out of the same town where W&L is located?

WUSTL is better than BC, but not 26K per year better.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Brooklyn vs GMU vs American

It seems like a lot of people try to transfer out of Brooklyn. That probably makes things harder.

It just seems like Manhattan firms should be paying you what it costs to live in Manhattan. The starting salaries at NYC Biglaw should be a lot more to compensate for the higher living costs. I think it is fair to say that while one can live fairly well in NYC on $110,000, in most other major cities that amount could allow you to live like a king, start builing equity in a nice home, and have money left over to invest. Even though NYC is a rip off, it's a very exciting city that can't be replicated elsewhere.

Before the cycle began, I was dead set on staying in SoCal, namely LA...but still applied to a bunch of schools just in case.  Well, I've gotten into Loyola LA (my #1 behind UCLA/USC auto-dings)...and just found out today I got into Maryland. 
Rankings...
Maryland - 36
Loyola LA - 66
Now I know its not all about rankings, but I just feel like I could be going to a school in the 30's and 40's...
Here's the issue.  I want to do entertainment law (LA is ideal...Baltimore, not so much).  I want to practice in LA.  So, do I go to Loyola LA (which makes more sense), or do I go to the better law school (Maryland).  I plan on visitng Maryland, and if I end up falling in love with it...what do I do?  Maryland or Loyola?  And if I do chose Maryland, will I have issues finding a job in LA?
Thanks everyone, I value your input a lot...

Why don't you see how your visit goes first? If you don't like the law school, there is no decision to even make.
