Law School Admissions / Re: UF Levin - Admitted Students Newsflash

I work in the admissions office.  You should call and ask instead of assuming.

So should I call and ask if everybody else at UF is a jerk?  Or can I just assume that?

Yes. Yes we are.


Gator - Are you one of the mean people behind the law library desk that tells me undergrads cant study there, even when my Con Law teacher requires us to use Levin's resources?  >:(

Kidding.  :-*
Did someone at Levin's library really tell you that undergrads can't study there?  As a publicly-funded institution, it's open to the public.  From the website: " The University of Florida Legal Information Center in Holland Hall is a public facility and is open to the public." <> 

Flame?  You're going to law school and can't figure out the difference between a waitlist, hold, and deferral?

I am not Steve Jones.  And FCSL is not the only one I got into.  I am just very picky about where I want to live and I am willing to spend $20k a year to get out of here.  I was accepted to the law school in my state which would be MUCH cheaper but I can't stand to live here anymore, I will kill myself.  Going into debt is worth saving my sanity.

As a current Jacksonville resident (only for the last year, fwiw) I'm not sure it's any better than Idaho.  FCSL has an unusually high attrition rate (23.7% after the first year, 8.3% after the second).  Compare those numbers with UF's (0.5% and 0.5%, respectively) and you'll understand why people aren't very eager to tell you that attending FCSL is a good idea. 


My rate dropped.  My loan has a variable rate that cannot go above 8.5% I believe.

1. Don't go to FCSL unless it's the only school you got into and you want to live and practice in Jacksonville.

2. "falkies" is probably Steve Jones.
