that comment about Miami being the sixth burrough is a laugh...I'm sure the partners at Cravath feel the same way. one thing i forgot to mention is make sure you account for the gpa you must maintain in order to keep your scholarship at Miami...remember (and not to insult your intelligence here) if they say you must maintain a 3.0, find out what percentage of the class gets a 3.0...if its less than 50% look out. you will be competing with much smarter people in law school than you were in UG so don't assume any class rank.
3.17 is 50% at Miami.
For last spring (2006) the 50% cut off for first year students was 2.953
ahhh nothing like an anecdote when counseling someone on a major life decision. quality of life has zero to do with what a young man like yourself might consider "boring". again, every year when the quality of life stats come out places like IA and MN and WI come out on top. I grew up in Rochester, MN. I was bored to tears during high school. this has nothing to do with the quality of life there since it routinely tops the top 10 best places to live in the U.S. (Fortune Magazine to name one). show him some facts or please stop boring us with your opinions.
