Well I have a bit of a problem...I was accepted at FSU, now I am torn over where to go. I really like Miami, but its so expensive. Coming from out of state I know I am going to be paying through the nose for the first year, but that $7,500 a year for 2nd and 3rd sure do look nice at FSU. Its so hard for me to decide, I find myself trying to convince myself to go to Miami, but then the money and ranking thing seems to come back up. I really want to do sports law, and I know that Miami is the place, but its just so hard to decide. If anyone has any opinions I am all ears.
there is another thread on this site that says that florida may change its in-state status rules. the change would hurt those who were planning on getting in-state tuition for their second and third years. florida currently changes in state status when you live/work in florida for 12 months, but now attending school for that year will not count. i dont know if it has passed though.
an effect of the passage of the legislation may push Univ of Miami higher in terms of ranking in florida.http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,34753.0.html

is anyone going to use the university's health insurance? it seems pretty expensive. and aren't there a whole bunch of shots that we need to get before school starts?

i know exactly where that store is. yeah, the law school t-shirts at the bookstore are kind of lame, but at the same time i want to be lame and where a law school shirt while i am working out. i'll check it out when i get back down there.
the t-shirt that they sent us is huge. i washed and dried that sh*t for about an hour without effect.
my apartment is a one bedroom, one bath. i am not sure about the number of square feet, but i do know that it is pretty small. but, it has a washer and dryer in the unit, and everything was very new and freshly painted. i am happy.
casino, is this a high-rise? also, would you mind sharing the name of the building?

Where is Fountainbleu and is it safe/close to campus? I keep seeing ads for reasonably priced apts there.
The Fountainbleu (Hilton), I think, is in S. Beach right on Collins Ave. I dont know if this is the one you are talking about though. But when I stayed there several months ago, they had condo's for sale and the owners had many of these rented out.

btw, it looks like i will be going down the week of the 12th. a realtor seems like the best option - given that they probably get a commission for finding a renter.

if i remember correctly the lockers are located outside within a hallway (the campus is basically an outdoor campus with all of the hallways exposed). does the wellness center have lockers? in any case it would be better than leaving it in your car. but i would be apprehensive about leaving something in a locker where it could get "misplaced" - especially if you have all of your classwork/notes on it.

Everyone, I was wondering how I should handle the following:
I currently have a car that seems like it is in ok condition. But I am worried that it probably will not be able to handle the weather in miami (AC makes the car shake, 120K miles). I am working now, and I figure I could get a car loan. But if I get a car now, I would have the car payments to deal with. But if I wait until the car breaks down, I would'nt be able to get a loan.
Is it even possible to get a car loan while going to school fulltime with no cosigner?

HELLO i'm from Michigan! I feel very torn between my home team and miami.... They may have won tonight but I am confident we will win it all again this year.
lalaMIA - Are you renting a 1 bedroom? How much is your rent?
I'm renting a studio at University Inn. I thought about the one bedroom, but it was just too expensive and the studio is only slightly smaller without a full kitchen. My rent is $875 a month. I guess I decided to take a smaller apartment for the close distance to the school. I havent even seen it yet though, I am heading down next week to look, hopefully it is ok!!
lalaMIA, so are there other studios available at the Inn?
