Well im still in Gainsville, ill be leaving soon so im going to be brief. My feet are killing me due to wearing dress shoes all day and walking everywhere. I should have brought some tennis shoes or sandals.
Anyway...the weather was amazing....80's and about 50% humidity - not enough fot it to matter. In terms of the law school, i was impressed with the facilities. Its amazing what a little bit of open space and natural lighting can do for a library. The library was deff one of the nicer parts of the school itself. The faculty seemed very nice and approachable. One guy came up to us and started talking to us about out coming choices. I thought he was a 2/3l or something but realized from his name tag color that he was a professor (taught estates/tax?). But yea he was very cool and very straight forward. He thought that he was a believer in (going to the best school you get into - you can pay off the debt in a few years after you graduate. In essence he was tacitly telling me not to go to Florida - but he followed up by reminding us that UF was great in the southeast and in Florida for sure. The student group was dominated by UF and Florida residents in general of course. I sensed a little bit of the undergrad atmosphere there, but it wasnt too bad.
One of the most interesting things was the mention that the median salary stats from the most recent class was up buy 10K. I asked later what the 25/75 was, but she said that wasnt known yet. They also mentioned how Atlanta and DC were the top 2 places grads went outside of Fl., but of coure i think this was a bit misleading. If you do a martindale search, there are only 60 some in DC but more (200 +) in Atalanta. So while those two cities may be the two places grads who go out of state place in - in the end it is only a testement to how most do end up in Florida (for better or worse). Bottom line being, dont expect it to be easy to place outside of the state.
If ya got any questions, ask away.
