I couldn't disagree with you any more.  I didn't realize a 2L had all the answers.  Like I said in many posts before, I don't plan on transferring - it was just an idea and a REAL option, not a dream.  That is why I would attend University of Denver or Seton Hall before Florida Coastal.  Do you not think I have friends who are attending or have attended law school?  Maybe you have a bleak outlook on the job market.  I have many friends who came out of FSU and UF and even Nova who are definitely not scrapping for jobs...lol..I just think a T2 school would place better - thats all.  I am just tired of the "T1 know it alls" on this board who offer to give a real dose of reality in their pessimistic view; which in reality all it is a skewed perception of life.  There are some on this board who tell it like it is and also offer a positive view.  Thanks to those.  But to the rest of you guys - you are the reason their are paranoid 1L students and the wave of bs rumors and false propoganda that circulates like cow droppings.  It stinks and no one wants to be around it.  And if the future outlook is that bad, maybe you should decide on a career change.
PS - This was typed after an evening of drinking...so I apologize in advance for the whirlwind this may cause:)

I disagree that Nova or St Thomas would be a better choice than University of Denver or Seton Hall - even if I plan to work in South Florida.  Like I said, my main goal is to hopefully transfer into Miami, but if I can't I think I would have better credentials coming out of University of Denver or Seton Hall than mill shop Nova or STU.  But then again this is all arbitrary, for each person or employer you will get a different response.  Most will agree that Miami, FSU, and UF place very well in Florida - the best.  But if you asked employers if they would rather hire a grad from Seton Hall or St. John's or Denver as compared to Nova or St. Thomas..... I would bet you would get mixed responses.

Ha, sounds good.  We are allowed to disagree.  I would think south Florida employers would be more open to hiring a University of Denver grad or Seton Hall grad or Loyola grad than a Florida A&M grad or Florida Coastal grad.  I don't think you understand that I have applied to those schools (UF, Miami, FSU) and did not get in.  Those are the prime schools.  Hopefully I can trasnfer in.  But I don't see any reason to just give up on south Florida employment becuase I go to a T2 outside the specific region of south Florida.

Thanks, do you both live in Atlanta?

Oh Ron how you manipulate the numbers and don't tell the whole story.  I applied to all of the afore menioned schools. These are the ones I have been accepted to.  I do agree with some of your statements though.  Ideally I will be in the top 20% of my 1L class and transfer to University of Miami, UF, or maybe FSU.  I do not argue that those are the prime schools for employment in Florida.  As for a 4.3% chance of working outside of Georgia, that is just not the case.  The reason that is the current stat is because John Marshall recently received their ABA approval.  Before this recent implementation change, all graduates HAD to work in the state of Georgia.  This is not the case anymore.  So I definitely would not say their is a zero, or now 4.3%, chance of getting hired out of the state of Georgia.  Not to mention, it is all relative.  I hear all this T4 bashing....but how about the thousands of students who attend non-ABA schools?  I bet they would love to be in a T3 or T4 ABA law school.  Just as those lower tier students want to move up to T2 or T1.

Good deal:)  I will check into asap. ha

Ahh, Ron Jeremy...didnt you learn in law school assumptions are the mother of all fu&$ ups?:)....I never said I didnt apply to UM, UF, or FSU.  I did apply their but didn't get in.  I applied to Denver, Seton Hall, etc. on a part time basis and got in.  I can always switch to to the full time program at some point or do well and transfer out after my first year.
A zero chance of getting a job from John Marshall in ATL if I want to work in Florida?  I seriously doubt that.

Considering that they're all fairly regional.
If you're sure you want to practice in FL, go to one of the FL schools of course.

BUT if you want a solid college experience, just in case you didn't already get one, I would say Ole Miss. Oxford, MS is a really fun college town and Ole Miss Law grads have a pretty solid alumni network in the Southeast.

University of Denver would be good, if you can see yourself living out your days in Denver.

Thanks. Its interesting you brought that up.  I played college baseball so I never really did the whole college thing.  I was up at 5am working out, then classes till noon, then baseball from 2 until dark.  And during the season we were always playing games or traveling.  So I also thought the same idea.  But again, I am thinking that this is time for law school and not time to do the whole college thing.

Also, wouldn't any of those schools get me atleast a descent job if I moved back to South Florida at some point?

I know there are alot of options here but these are the schools I am considering.  I will probably practice in South Florida.  Where should I attend?!? ???

Hey so I may be on the way to John Marshall Law School in Atlanta in August.  Can I get any advice from Atlanta natives or law school students in Atlanta.  There seems to be hundreds of apartment complexes in Mid-town.  I just want something close to the school in a good area.
Thx...
