UF.  They are higher ranked for a reason.  Their placement probably is better than you may think.  Don't worry about football.  It will be the least of your concerns.

Rank is not necessarily an indicator of employment prospects.  Miami and UF have similar NLJ 250 firm placement: http://www.law.com/img/nlj/charts/composite.pdf.

And don't worry, you'll learn to like football at either school.

Wrong!

Yeah, I guess Miami hasn't had much going for them in a while and UF has already lost some of their best players. Probably nothing left to watch at either of those schools once Timmy rolls on down to the 6th round.

I'm from the area.  Go to UF.  It is a no-brainer.  I work for a big law firm in Miami, and we routinely bring in UF graduates every year, and WAY more than UM grads.  UF is the better choice (and cheaper).

Go to UF.  Law firms in south Florida will hire UF graduates before UM graduates.  I work at a big firm in Miami, and we routinely hired UF graduates more often than UM graduates.
