why is kaplan bad? Well they hired my sister who was a 19 year old and had under a 3.0 gpa to teach a class in DC (probably the biggest law city in the country) if that tells you anything about their quility of instructors.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Boyd- UNLV?
« on: May 30, 2007, 10:16:10 AM »
There is, overall, not a lot of emphasis put on higher education in Las Vegas simply because it is relatively easy to make a decent living without a college degree. This also contributes to a very low high school graduation rate. So, no, saying you go to Boyd is not going to get you a lot of pull because the bartender/waitress/etc you're hitting on probably already makes more than you are going to make after you graduate.

wow that sucks. No sense in going to law school there then if you dont even make more than bartenders and waitresses do.

That's not true. A bag of money and a Benz will do the trick as well. Seriously though, I have friends at SMU and from what they have said he's 100% correct. If you are not rich or ridiculously good looking, all you can do is watch. Other friends have said that the law school is a bit different though. (Not sure, never been there)

I don't know anything about Baylor though. Does anyone know if Baylor girls are generally the same way or are they down to earth in comparison?

Can anyone describe the girls at the law school at SMU? I'm thinkin of goin there and im definetly not the richest person.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: FIU vs Miami
« on: May 24, 2007, 03:46:48 PM »
hard decision. fiu isnt that great academically but at least you're in miami. stay away from the state of iowa its a shithole i lived there for 18 years so i would know.

congrats on miami, but honestly what do you know about fiu law's academic record and faculty?  please keep the generalizations about your knowledge of the FIU undergraduate community to yourself especially since the only real objective test about a law school's "academics" (if you don't go there) is the bar passage rate. 

the same FL bar passage rate that FIU students, in the school's short history, has been very competitive with, if not better, than UM.  UM is still king in Miami don't get me wrong, but please leave the "not that great academically" generalization to the undergrads. 

also, FIU isn't simply a breeding ground for you to pass the bar like some T3's that only teach black letter law.  the 1L classes are actually pretty opposite to that and are taught in distinct styles by the faculty while using the same textbooks as T1's across the country. 

FYI.  Here are FL Bar Passage Rates for first-time takers since February '06:

February '06: FIU 86.4% and Miami 69.2%
July '06: Miami 85.7% and FIU 79%
February '07: FIU 94.4% and Miami 76.6%

Again, there is no doubt that Miami reigns supreme in Miami at this time.  No need to debate that.  Just trying to make you aware of some things you probably don't know.



You do realize that the vast majority of the people who take the bar takes it in the summer right? the times that FIU had a great passage rate was in the winter when hardly anyone takes it.

ahhh nothing like an anecdote when counseling someone on a major life decision.  quality of life has zero to do with what a young man like yourself might consider "boring".  again, every year when the quality of life stats come out places like IA and MN and WI come out on top.  I grew up in Rochester, MN.  I was bored to tears during high school.  this has nothing to do with the quality of life there since it routinely tops the top 10 best places to live in the U.S. (Fortune Magazine to name one).  show him some facts or please stop boring us with your opinions.

Actaully no place in iowa has ever been on any lists of top places to live. If it did, the news would freakin talk about it for 5 years nonstop since the press there it obsessed with any mediocre accomplishment people have there. I remember once the front page of a paper was a story about how a guy donated a million dollars to Iowa State hahahaha.
