Lower tuition breeds a large applicant pool. The state is pumping money into FIU, while FAMU is obviously Florida's Cooley. I have no reason to talk up FIU; it is my immediate competition (UMIAMI). I don't know where you are from but everyone down here knows FIU is going to settle somewhere in the second tier. THE SCHOOL'S MEDIAN LSAT IS = TO STETSON'S JUST 2 YEARS AFTER ACCREDITATION! (155)
FIU is objectively better than Nova (tier 3 vs 4 respectively). Right now stetson is the best choice but FIU has a good future.
