Where should I go next fall? / Re: W&L or FSU - no $ either place

Yeah I could be completely wrong.  I work with federal judges, magistrates, AUSAs, local litigators, and federal defense attornies all day long.  Miami graduates 400+ students every year, of course we have a presence here.

Tampa is becoming an increasingly saturated market.  I wouldn't recommend Stetson to anyone.  Eventhough they have some amazing professors, a beautiful campus, and frequent legal seminars, the job prospects for most students outside the top quartile are grim.  The difference between their marketibility and Miami's is night and day.

Knowledge of Spanish is by no means necessary for biglaw in Miami.  It could get you out from behind your desk once in awhile though, to entertain clients or pick them up at the airport.

One other thing is that Federal clerkship positions are sometimes more influenced by who you know rather than what you know.  You sould seriously look into doing an internship at a federal court while you're still in school, this segways nicely and if your judge likes you he/she will make that all-important phone call.

Wow, I don't really enough about either to say.  I know Vandy is really small.  Private  v. Public.  Possibility of instate during 3L at Texas.  You've got to keep us updated.

That was great.  Makes me feel bad about all the Cooley cracks I made in the last few years.

If you really turned down other scholarship offers and have proof of that you could argue the offer was binding on the school because you relied to your detrement.  They  might teach you this in  Contracts in a few weeks. On the other hand there is something to be said about picking your battles.

Doesn't every school require a BA/BS before enrollment?

Congrats Julie! Do you have any idea which one you'll pick?
