Where should I go next fall? / Speaking Spanish in Texas
« on: March 20, 2009, 02:19:28 PM »
So I left Miami because I thought it was ridiculous that a city in America requires "fluent in english and spanish" in so many job applications. Now I'm starting to hear about the illegal immigration problems in Texas. Do the legal markets in Dallas or Houston care at all about whether you speak Spanish?

Affirmative Action / Re: How do my fellow asians feel about AA?

It is absolute BS, thats how I feel about it. There is no more unjust law that exists in the country. If the governemnt really wanted to help those who grew up in difficult learning environments, they should helping those with low family incomes, not just any random person who happened to be part of a race.

I grew up in poverty and all my friends were black. I grew up with every type of learning disadvantage that the stereotypical  "URM" went through, but since my skin color belongs to an "overrepresented" group, I'm expected to score over 10 points higher on the LSAT just to be considered an equal in the eyes of admission boards to "URMs" that grew up in my neighhborhood.

Does anyone else have any thoughts about the school? Cost of living, quality of education, job placement, etc? Also, this is a more specific question, but how is their Sports and Entertainment program and do they have a lot of sports/entertainment related clubs, organizations, etc?

I know a couple things on their sports program:

1. Paul Dee, the former athletic director of the U teaches sports law there.
2. Some girl got an internship in the legal department for the Seattle Sonics last year- it was on their student profiles.
3. If an agent is what you want to be, forget about doing that in Miami- Drew Rosenhaus has a monopoly on the sports agent business here if you haven't heard.

159 and a 3.66 and I haven't heard anything and I applied in late october, then got "held for further review" 01/29/09.

LSN showed that someone got in with a 3.58 and a 159 so I like your chances...

Got my acceptance call today  :)

From what I remember the application was the same for both FT and PT, I checked PT for my preference.
Congrats! Did you apply only to PT?  I applied to both FT & PT.

My status just changed to "Decision Rendered". Anyone know what that means?

care to share #'s?  mine says "Held for further review"

159, 3.62, applied the last week of Feb. I'm getting a bad feeling about this. What are your #'s?

LOL at how none of the OP's links don't even work. I'll refrain from ripping into her since she's kinda cute (if thats her pic).

Where should I go next fall? / Re: WHERE SHOULD I GO NEXT FALL????

Still waiting to hear from a bunch of different schools, but so far I've been accepted to:

-Widener--Harrisburg campus (I have no real desire to live in PA, but I think it's the best of my options for right now)

-Florida Coastal (I had NO idea it was such a crappy school until I was accepted and started to do reseach on its reputation, which sucks, because I really wanted to relocate to Jacksonville)

-Florida A&M (I already pretty much crossed this one off the list, although I'm oh so tempted by the idea of living in Orlando)

So let's assume that I don't get accepted into any of the other schools I'm waiting to hear from now (God Forbid!) given my choices, which one is the best?

Is it too risky to go to Florida Coastal and try to transfer out for my second year...maybe to University of Florida or Florida State?  As an URM, (first generation Latina), do my chances of transferring increase?  I would love to live in north Florida after graduation.  I can't help wondering, are all Florida Coastal graduates really doomed to poverty?

Also, please keep in mind that I am not at all interested in BIGLAW, but I don't want to strave to death either.

I appreciate all responses.

Not sure if being a URM helps in transferring, but it sure as hell helps in getting accepted with much lower LSATs. Where else are you waiting to hear from?
