Who cares? Where do you want to work? How much will each cost to attend? What do you want to do with your degree?

To be honest, I do not know what I want to do with a law degree yet. I would wanna work
in a big city(as long as it is not suburb its ok with me) if cost wasnt my concern what schoold would be the best choice?

If money were really not a factor, I would choose San Diego. But this is because of the weather, it's in a "big" city, and has a good network in the area. None of these schools will provide you with much mobility, so choose based on where you see yourself for the next 10 years. I feel like you can throw out FSU rather easily based on not wanting to live in a suburb.

Miami and San Diego are #1 in their market.

Chicago-Kent is 3rd in its own city, and thats not even counting the Michigan grads who would all have preference over them as well in chicago.

FSU is located in a small town and has no real big market near it.

Agree that it's not exactly Miami or Orlando, but Tallahassee isn't really that small and it is the state capitol.
