I'm considering Mercer (with scholarship) over Iowa. I've visited the campus. It's beautiful from the outside, and most of the facilities on the inside are top notch. The building sits atop a hill that overlooks downtown Macon.There's definitely more night life in Columbia because of the larger undergrad population. For what it's worth, there's plenty of free parking at the law school.The Mercer faculty is well-known to go out of its way to help students. (The Princeton Review student survey puts them in the top 10 for "professors rock").One of Leiter's studies looks at the endowment of schools. If you adjust for cost of living and the # of students, Mercer is in the top 5 in the nation. So, they've got the money to keep up the facilities and recruit quality faculty, staff, and students.What is your 3-year estimated cost of attendance (with living) and estimated debt for each school? This could be an important factor. And what do you want to do after LS?I'm trying to figure out a way to post these pictures...

So I am faced with a huge decision...just like everybody here.I'm deciding between Mercer, South Carolina, and Miami.I know a decent amount about Miami, and have visited the city, but I don't know anything about Mercer or South Carolina.Mercer is rated pretty good, but do the facilities keep pace with South Carolina? I've heard that South Carolina has some pretty old buildings, but honestly that doesn't bother me at all if the faculty is first rate.I would like to work in Florida...No State Income Tax!!!, but I really do not want to stay in Miami. I was looking and the cost of living is absolutely through the roof.I'm just looking for a general discussion about mostly South Carolina and Mercer, there is material all over about Miami, but barely anything about Mercer and South Carolina.Thanks in advance everybody!
That is fascination, the $95k firm in Charleston. Sounds like a dream come true to me. How many do they hire each year?
Dude it's really not that bad a place, especially if you want to work in SC. Don't let this board make you think that nobody is applying -- people here do not represent the average applicant.
