Back during the application cycle, I visited U. of Miami, Florida Int'l Univ., and Nova Southeastern. At these three schools, I spoke to current students. Needless to say Miami had the best jobs prospects. Followed by FIU, and the Nova. Nova students seemed downright terrified as to whether they would have a job waiting for them by the end of graduation. (One student even warned me to only go T2 or higher; IOW, not Nova). The campus was nice, but if having a job is particularly important, then don't go there. 

If your grades are pretty decent (top 1/3 or better) I would definitely apply to the other two schools as well. Plus, Miami would probably have more financial aid money to throw around I would think.

Nova has a decent reputation in Broward County. If you look at firms in Broward, there are a ton of Nova grads. I heard they have a pretty harsh curve, though.
