FIU will certainly be an accredited law school soon and will easily be Tier 3. It may nose up to the lower reaches of Tier 2 before long. If you want to practice in FL, go there. For everywhere else, I repeat, Case Western Reserve is a major, prestigious university. Every well-educated person I have ever met knows that. If you get a good scholarship to mitigate the outrageous tuition, go there. The reputation of the outstanding university rubs off on the merely good law school.No one outside of Florida knows FIU from a hole in the ground, nor will FIU ever become a top university. Florida State is consistently ranked below Case Western Reserve. Where does that leave FIU?
