I'm between FIU and Drake. FIU offered me Part-time which I'm not too enthused about, so I was curious as to what decision you made. Not to mention I've been following this thread for a while now. lol Congrats on your decision!

UM is still king in Miami don't get me wrong, but please leave the "not that great academically" generalization to the undergrads. also, FIU isn't simply a breeding ground for you to pass the bar like some T3's that only teach black letter law. the 1L classes are actually pretty opposite to that and are taught in distinct styles by the faculty while using the same textbooks as T1's across the country. FYI. Here are FL Bar Passage Rates for first-time takers since February '06:February '06: FIU 86.4% and Miami 69.2%July '06: Miami 85.7% and FIU 79%February '07: FIU 94.4% and Miami 76.6% Again, there is no doubt that Miami reigns supreme in Miami at this time. No need to debate that. Just trying to make you aware of some things you probably don't know.
I do not know much about the bar, but I have a question: Does it matter when the students take the test? Do their bar passage scores rely on other students' scores? So basically, is it possible for all bar test takers, on a specific day (or testing period), to pass the test? Not being snarky, just asking.
