Where should I go next fall? / Re: FSU or UF?
« on: March 29, 2010, 06:12:49 AM »
Yes, 10K to FSU and nothing yet from UF, but I doubt I'll get anything, I hear they're pretty tight with money. I'm in state also, so either would be pretty cheap. I've visited both, liked the atmosphere better at FSU because the students seemed happier. The library at UF is really nice though. I'm definitely leaning towards FSU since I started this thread...

Is it 10k/yr.?  Are there any GPA requirements to keep the 10k?

How much is the living stipend from Stetson? 

With the 8K from UF, you're basically looking at about $10K in tuition, right? 

What if you're not at the top 40% at Stetson?  You'll be paying $45K a year (tuition plus living expenses) and you'll end up with a Stetson degree.  What if you don't have 3.2 at UF?  You'll still left with in-state tuition AND a UF degree. 

If I were you, I'll stick with UF.  By the way, UF is not that far from Tampa and it dominates the Tampa market, just like Stetson, if not more, and any other market in Florida, which cannot be said about Stetson.   

I agree.  UF's most likely the OP's best choice.

Is there any scholarship money offered to you from either school?  Have you visitied both schools??

Yeah, cost is a key factor.  What would be the cost of attending each school?

I am trying to decide whether or not to go to Stetson Law School? Can anyone give me some advice or opinion on Stetson Law?

Stetson is a solid school if you know that you want to practice in the Tampa area. (When doing research into firms/judges in the Tampa area, I recall seeing many Stetson graduates.  This research was done about a year ago, in the interest of full disclosure.) However, its reputation declines significantly, as far as I can tell, outside the Tampa area.  If your debt won't be too high to go there, it's a good choice!

Hey guys,

Quick question.  Will a 165 and a 2.9 GPA get me into either FSU or UF, and if not what LSAT score should I aim for?

The LSAT is solid for either school, but it's hard to say your odds with your GPA.  A good website to compare other applicants at those schools, and others, is

Good luck!

1L job search / Re: How to locate Immigration Law internships in PA?

I know little-to-nothing about immigration law, but I do know that a good resource for "public interest" internships (and even jobs after graduation) is:

(Unfortunately, I know that this website had a interesting imm. law internship near Harrisburg a few weeks ago, but they took down the posting.  :-\)

I hope this helps you a little, and I wish I could help you more.

i'm pretty sure a higher percentage of grad students get them than undergrads.

Yeah, I'm fairly certain of that too.

I was joking and serious..a little bit of both..but you said most law/grad students easily attend f-ball games, right?

Most people that I know here do attend football games.  I don't have empirical data, though!  :D

What! That is unlawful! You should sue them, you are obviously a student and are guaranteed the normal rights that any regularly matriculated student has.  UMich law students attend football games any time they want, what is this discriminatory and untoward agenda UF has against its law students?  If most go, how were you one who was precluded; what happened?  Please describe..

I'm assuming you're joking!  :D  That's the way the cookie crumbles.

Awesome! Sounds good so far.  I was a bit confused when you said most law students attend f-ball games if they win the lottery..what does this mean? Just a slang or something I'm missing?

Sorry about that.  All students who want student tickets for all the home football games must enter a lottery to get them.  Supposedly, most graduate students get them, but I was one of the few who wasn't so lucky.   :-\
