I take fight to the death as well, but I'm a regulator, so you know.
Anyway, either school is fine and will serve you well. If you think government law is more your kick, go to FSU since we place a ton of people into those positions (like 30 or 40% or something). If you're gunning for the big law life, go to UF since they put 2-3 times as many people into big law (that's still only 10-15% of the class). Generally, you're going to be looking mainly at medium sized Florida firms coming out of either.
As for lifestyle, FSU is pretty cool and collegial. There's very little gunnerism and everyone gets along well. The profs are pretty chill for the most part and actually seem like they want you to succeed. The greater University's administration sucks, but the law school's admin is decent. Our football program will likely blow hard for the next few years, but might be decent again by the time you graduate.
I can't really speak much for Florida since I only know a few people there and am not real good friends with any of them, but I gather that it's a little more competitive. Still, I can't see it being all that bad. Their football team will likely remain good for some time, but will not be able to win another national title after this year.
I agree with Ninja that if you know for sure that you want government work, and you want to live in Tallahassee, you should go to FSU.
I will add, however, that I'd venture that most law students going into law school have a vague idea of what they want to do, and that it changes as they go through law school. As such, you should be honest with yourself and make sure that's what you want to do, because otherwise I'd say it's better to go to UF.
At the same time, if you're looking for "biglaw," I'd be wary of going to any
Florida school. Places like UF are getting hit hard due to the economy--"good" jobs are hard to find. Make sure you really want to do law school before you go!
