Where should I go next fall? / Re: Hamline or FCSL

The weather does play a huge factor, i will not lie.  I was thinking that law school could be my 3 year break from the midwest- I have lived here all my life and wanted to experience something different for a bit.  Is going to law school in a different area too much of a risk?  Or should I stay in the midwest and just take long vacations?? ;D

Would it be worth it to apply to Florida International or Nova Southeastern??

Money is not very important, though cheaper is of course better.  The scholarship is 5,000 which makes FCSL about 5.5K cheaper than Hamline.  I really don't know which way I am leaning, FCSL scares me because of its size and what I have read.  I kind of plan on transferring to a T3 or even top 100 school if possible after my first year.  Factors important would be I want to work as a prosecutor after law school so job prospect. 

I guess just people's vote for either Hamline or FCSL would be best.  And why.  I am really hoping my waitlist schools come through then I wouldn't have to chose between the two- I'd go with the waitlist in a heartbeat.

I am currently accepted at FCSL and Hamline and torn between the decision.  The schools I really want to get into- WVU, U Maine, and Marquette- I am waitlisted at.  So, I have to make a deposit at FCSL or Hamline coming up here.  I would really like some input on any aspect of both schools.  I am from MN and one attractive bit about FCSL is that it ISN'T in MN.  Also, is it REALLY that hard to go to a school in FL then find a job back in the midwest?  If I did well at one of the two schools is it (again) REALLY that hard to transfer to a T3 or top 100 school?

Any input is great, though I am aware that both are T4 schools and there is nothing I can do about it.

FCSL gave me a scholarship, Hamline did not.
