thelawfool, Yes, and I am sorry. The universi. of phoenix was a cheap shot and that was wrong. But point is "transparency" and all students deciding on where to attend should know everything about any institution. Nowithstanding the fact there is a material schism between the quality of the under grad and law school @ fiu, people deciding on fiu ought to know. it is a mater of principle, duty and fairness. Even you were offended (which I am sorry for) when I compared fiu to uni. of phoenix. you said "compare us to university of phoenix". You juxtaposed fiu law and fiu undergrad when you used the word "us". The point is that poeple "out there" will do the same and I think that it is only fair for the people considering fiu to know such state of affairs before they sign up. It would not be right for them to find out later. There have been many scandals, like the current one, that have tarnished the perception of that institution. But I am certain that with law students like yourself and others that I am great friends with things will change greatly and the future will be brighter than the present because of you work. best.
Well I'm a USF bull so I'm all for them getting their own law school.

Major point not addressed here. UM has the *potential* to create more employment opportunities than FIU COL based solely on its perceived prestige and long-standing presence in the Miami-dade area. Unfortunately, nothing is a sure thing. Placing in the top 10% is not a sure thing; neither is knowing you will enjoy classes, professors or students. With UM, it's an expensive gamble. With FIU, less so.
