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.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: FIU vs Miami

I'm between FIU and Drake. FIU offered me Part-time which I'm not too enthused about, so I was curious as to what decision you made.  Not to mention I've been following this thread for a while now. lol :) Congrats on your decision!

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.

Quality of life in iowa is about the worst you will find in any state other than alaska. trust me i lived there for 18 years.

just keep in mind, going to Miami COULD be better, doesn't mean it WILL be better.


HUGE difference that many people seem to overlook...

TITCR.

Major point not addressed here. UM has the *potential* to create more employment opportunities than FIU COL based solely on its perceived prestige and long-standing presence in the Miami-dade area. Unfortunately, nothing is a sure thing. Placing in the top 10% is not a sure thing; neither is knowing you will enjoy classes, professors or students. With UM, it's an expensive gamble. With FIU, less so.

Not really. If you plan on getting a job after going to FIU you better be sure you can be in the top 1 percent or so. I would say that's much more of a gamble.

Nothing good is in the state of Iowa. Stay the hell away from it. Trust me. Miami would be by far the best to live and work out of the 3, Madison being 2. Iowa grads go to the biggest firms in the state and make 50k hahahaha.

Miami > Wisonconsin >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.Iowa/

Studying for the LSAT / f*ck reading comp
« on: May 19, 2007, 04:12:40 PM »
this is the stupidest section on the test. why is this even on the LSAT, the *&^% they talk about there has nothing related to being a lawyer except for the law passage. On my best day im sure i can get the ar and games all right but i can never miss less than 10 on the reading comp.

137
On both my diagnostics i took from testmasters i did way better on the scored reading comp and games than the nonscored reading comp and games. i hope i get that lucky in the real test.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Univ. of Miami anyone?
« on: April 29, 2007, 06:48:50 PM »
Thanks.  This seems a little counter-intuitive though.  Isn't most of the affordable housing to the north?

Most affordable housing in Miami is way north...north of downtown, in the North Miami Beach/Little Haiti area, as well as west and in Broward county. Other affordable housing is south, in the Kendall area, and the area around Coral Gables is relatively affordable.

Rush hour traffic heads towards downtown. If you are south of downtown, which is where Coral Gables is, you want to drive south in the morning/north in the afternoon to avoid traffic.

No one going the the U shoud be living anywhere north of downtown.

Incoming 1Ls / Can cops arrest you without breathlyzing you?
« on: April 29, 2007, 04:28:22 PM »
Just wondering for anyone into criminal law. One of my friends was arrested being charged for public intoxication, he doesnt remember what happened, but he was told by the cops he was given an alcohol test. Can they do this?

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Most lucrative and prestigious law

are there ibanks not in new york and do they pay about as much?

Yes, there are ibanks in Chicago and San Fran (the next two big I-Bank cities), as well as LA and Boston, and you'll find a hand few in DC, Miami, Houston, and Dallas (mainly boutique firms).

They usually pay the same or a little less, though the bonuses might not be as nice (depends on the company's policies). Those jobs aren't any easier to get, and still require the Ivy/Northwestern/Chicago/Etc. degree for a good shot. The only difference is that sometimes they might also recruit at the local schools.

So pretty much no chance with a 3.6 from miami?
