i think the previous posters are steering you in the correct direction. i considered and visited Stetson when i was looking at law school. You do have to realize that, you probably will not be able to practice law outside of FL if you attend Stetson. According to NALP, there are approximately 70 law firms/offices that interview there. Hopefully that should provide ample opportunity to be gainfully employed upon graduation. (EDIT: i went thru the NALP more carefully, and it looks like there are probably only 10-15 employers doing OCI there, that perhaps changes things.)
Stetson's campus in Gulfport is gorgeous and is located approximately 2 miles or so from the beach. The surrounding area is a little run down, however.
As per rent, it was my understanding that Stetson was buying up some homes in the area to rent to students.
Although I did not go there, I think it would be very interesting to consider. If you don't like it but do well, you could always transfer to UF. Hope that helps.
