Without receiving the usual "YOU SHOULD HAVE WENT TO SCHOOL IN FLORIDA" response. I am looking for some assistance or info from the kind people on this board.

I am a 1L at SIU in Carbondale Illinois. My main goal is to go back to FL when I graduate. I went to SIU because of the cost of tuition. As I see it now, Because I have a family and still need to support them while they are here, I have 3 options.

1)Work here this summer and take my chances.
2)Apply for one of the summer programs in FL. (Pretty sure I won't get one coming from a 3rd tier in IL)
3)Apply for some positions as a clerk in FL and try to attend a summer semester at a law school in FL.

Does anyone have any suggestions. I am not naive and I know it will be hard. I am just trying to do what I can. My grades are not out, and have no idea where I will finish. ONly thing that I possibly have in my favor is that I have 8 years military experience.

Any Help???
