At this point, my objective is to practice in South Florida. My first choice has always been Miami, and I am now on their waitlist. Based upon information floating around, it looks like my chances for admission there are minimal. I am now moving forward under the assumption that I will ultimately be rejected. I came to grips with this and came to the conclusion that I will go to Nova and network my ass of to get a decent job as many people I know who work in this market have done.
Things got complicated a bit today when I learned of my acceptance to FSU. Assuming that I can get in state tuition my last two years ( I live in NY now), it looks like a great option. My concern is that my best employment options will be in North Florida. I went to UF and know for a fact that I do not want to end up in Jax, Orlando, Tampa, etc.
Does anyone have any quality information and opinions on what my employment chances will be at good firms in South Florida coming from FSU and Nova? I am looking at law school as a means to an end, so really the quality and location of opportunities are by far my most important decision criteria. Any help that anyone can provide is greatly appreciated...
