If you're thinking St. Thomas you should go to FIU instead. Both are T4's which speaks for themselves but at least FIU costs only 1/3 as much.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Is it too late to get scholarships?
« on: February 19, 2009, 10:53:07 PM »
You might get a few offers, but....I would encourage you to wait until next year, regardless.  The reason that I say this is not so much because you'll get better offers (you will), but because it sounds like you are making this decision in haste.  Deciding that you want to go to law school less than a year before graduating undergrad, in my decision, is far too quickly - law school is something that needs to be kept in mind early on, or else you simply won't be ready when the classes come at you.   You won't have the same level of commitment to your decision that your fellow students will have.  Basically, my advice is to think hard about why you want to go to law school, maybe work a year as a paralegal, then come back....

Hey, I actually graduated in May of 08. I had planned to go to law school all throughout college and took the LSAT 2 years ago. I didn't end up applying anywhere last year because I got a job offer which seemed like a lot of money at the time, but the job ended being horribly boring so I quit and decided to go to apply to law school after all.

Choosing the Right Law School / Is it too late to get scholarships?

I just decided to go to law school a few weeks ago and just got my apps out. If I have the same type of numbers as people who received scholarships but applied back in November, would I still be considered or are schools pretty much done with giving out scholarships at this point?

Pursuing an LLM / Re: Miami - Real Estate LLM
« on: April 06, 2007, 08:32:23 AM »
I would say a Tax LLM is worth it.  I would say an LLM from a top 10 school would be worth it.  But I don't think anyone cares about a RE LLM.  Plus Miami isn't a good school.  Therefore, I doubt it will increase his/her salary.

I could be wrong but I don't think its worth it.

The real estate in south florida has been about as good as it gets in the country the past 10 years. So whether or not you think Miami is a "good school" or not, they are the #1 school in one of the best real estate areas. Getting connections in your years at Miami will benefit you more than going to a top-10 school when it comes to selling houses.

I know that their associates get much more money than most associates at a law firm. I was wondering if you work as an attorney for the PE firms, would their salaries be higher as well? Do they also get the huge bonuses that the associates get? Do they also have a chance to move up he PE firm, or do you have to have a business background? thanks for any responces.

I guess I'm a little late, but I'll chime in anyway.


First of all, getting tier 1 with a 159 is possible, but probably only with URM status OR 3.7+ GPA.  I was auto-admit at SMU with 159/3.97 and I'm not a minority, so I'm thinking if you have a 3.6 you might get in, but later in the cycle, perhaps of the waitlist.  You might have a chance at Florida or Iowa too.

Second of all, if you're thinking about re-taking to make a 162, you shouldn't even re-take  You should only re-take if you're 99 percent sure you can improve, meaning you should probably feel good about making at least a 165.  The LSAT is fickle, you can't just turn on a switch and improve a couple points.  Gear yourself for a 10 point improvement, and you might end up with a 162.

Well the highest I've scored on a practice is 167. The rest were 162's except for the first few ive ever taken. Do you think i need to consistently score in the high 160's then to retake?
