Misery, do NOT retake the LSAT!! Please apply with the 172!! Most law schools will give you scholarships with a 172.

CIlover,  I think it would be awesome to be able to do good that transcends national borders, at least from personal fulfillment standpoint. The only downside, if there is any, would be that sometimes int'l law is hard to enforce because some contries (US included)in recent decades have shown growing hostility toward any legal constraints upon their foreign policy. 

Gattomatto, international law does deal with the U.N. and multinational organizations. International law also involves ADR for disputes between countries about borders, international criminal law (like terrorism or drugs), and business transactions.

I like international law because I enjoy working with different cultures. I'm also interested in property/real estate law and education law.

That's very TRUE, especially with the Iraq war and all.

Is anyone here  going for a joint JD/Phd?

Were you offered any scholarships? If you are in the JD/PhD program, is it tough, easy, etc.?

I found the information in St. Thomas' law catalog. I have the 2004-2004 edition. You are right (I found it on page 83). Tuition is $12,350.00 per semester. It's still too much for me!

It costs $23,873 to attend Nova full time per YEAR. It is $17, 905 for part time students according to the website.

P.S. Liberty City is WORSE than Opa locka!

Which is better for:

1. Class size?

2. Grading Scale?

3. Professors teaching style?

4. Employment opportunities?

5. Competition from classmates?

I could not help reading this thread and not responding to it! I'm from Opa locka and I have to agree the city is getting worse. When I lived in Opa locka, it was nice (although there were more police officers there than now).

I would pick Nova over St. Thomas because Nova has a mediation clinic. One could also go to law school part time. St. Thomas is expensive ($23,000 per semester and a senior paper that is required for graduation)!

I will apply to three Nova, FIU, and University of Miami. I have to stay here because I have a job here. 

WKRUSE, please tell me how LS is like at FIU. I plan to apply next year.

I'm left brain (dominant) all the way!
