Choosing the Right Law School / Re: UF or Miami?
« on: March 29, 2005, 07:37:26 AM »
as a grad student, do you live in dorms with other grad students or do you live with undergrads? living with undergrads would be awful as a law student! if you don't mind me asking, how much does your brother pay for his off-campus rent? I am not familiar with the Gainesville area at all.

I agree about living with undergrads, especially since UF is notorious for being a "party school" I am not really sure off hand about either of your questions. You probably would be better off calling the school and asking them instead of me.

I believe on campus and off campus housing are comparable in price; however, you would definately be better off living somewhere off campus. My brother is currently attending UF and spent his first year in the dorms. He hated it and is currently living in a  apartment complex about a mile off campus and likes it much better.

Wow! That is really bad of St Thomas to blacklist another school, especially coming from a unprofessional.

It was kind of strange...I understand there's competition, especially with these schools, but still...

I agree. They might be hurting for numbers by badmouthing other universities. I definately would take that as a sign to stay away. If professors are acting in this manner outside of class, can you imagine what they will be doing in class?

In my eyes, UF would be the best choice. Like you mentioned earlier, it has a higher ranking (Tier 1 for 2006) and lower cost than Miami. After your first year, you probably could also qualify for in-state tuition which lowers your cost even further. Additionally, by going there you will probably have the same or better career prospects as you would by going to Miami. Although there is more to do in the Miami area than in Gainesville, it would  be benficial to go to school somewhere with less distractions so you can focus on your studies. I doubt that many of us are planning on going out very much for our first year. Congrats on your acceptance, and I am positive you will do great no matter where you go!

Good choice by going to Miami, Congrats! Today they opened up a Krispy Kreme about 3 minutes south of the campus on US 1. If I get accepted, I plan on being a regular there.

I have heard mixed things about St. Thomas. One friend of mine hated it so much that she dropped out. I have another friend that is sticking to it. He loves the school and seems to think that the new dean will make an enourmous difference by bringing up the school's bar passage rates.
Both Florida Coastal and St. Thomas have certain benefits associated with them. While Florida Coastal might be the better of the two schools, St. Thomas offers an education in the Miami area which should open up more career prospects down the road.

I was accepted to Syracuse a few weeks ago. I plan on pulling out since I received an acceptance from FSU which my 2nd choice school. Hopefully that will open up one space for those of you waiting to get in.

I hope this is true. I was just put on Miami's waitlist after being deferred for 2 months. I hope the eventual decision that I get from UM will be worth the wait.

Just got denied at Pitt. Not that it really matters I suppose.

I dont think it will hurt as long as you haven't been calling and emailing them to a point that it would be annoying. If you really want to get into that school, why not fight for it. It's better that you ask if there is anything additional that you can do to raise your chances of being accepted rather than nothing at all. The worst they could say is no and you would be in the same place you are now.
