Incoming 1Ls / Re: TAP vs AAMPLE 2012
« on: May 06, 2012, 03:55:55 PM »
Hi Koley91 My son took AAMPLE at Nova Southeastern. The courses were the same ones offered at the time at Widener and Florida Coastal which are Ngotiable Instruments and 4th amendemnt. Fourth Amendment actually is a lot more useful.

Essentially, all AAMPLE programs are very hard, very intensive, cruelly graded on a curve;however, they can give you a chance to get admitted into schools that you wouldn't normally get admitted to.  If you want to work in Florida, Florida Coastal might be better. Widener in Delaware.

However, with the above said, both schools have VERY poor placement and very poor cache. You would need to network and intern to have any shot of a job from either place. If you have any questions about them, you can post here, and I will try to answer general questions about AAMPLE. Good luck.

Honestly , they have about the same cache. Here is the real question: What are the stipulations required at each school in order to keep your scholarship?

My son is in the same situation, He is attending a T4 in Florida and wants to transfer to Miami. The admission said that he MUST have at least a 3.0 or top 20% to be considered.

Sorry , you didn't appreciate my comments. By the way, I am an attorney and have owned my own firm for many years.  I have also taught at both law schools and at business schools. However, despite your nasty response,  I wish you well in your endeavor.

Sarcasm noted. However, who says that you should absolutely go to law school this year. This way, you would have a LOT more time to study and raise your score. Both schools have poor job placement. Is it worth 160K for poor job placement? Your call!

You won't like my answer. Retake the LSAT and don't go to either. You should be shooting for a top 20 law school.

Actually, I vised University of Cincinnati law school. Don't get confused with  the quality of a law school and the lack of legal jobs. These are two different factors. Yes, attending any school below the top 15 will make job searches much tougher. However , with that said, UC has a pretty good law school and will give a fine quality legal education. Everyone I know who has graduated from there liked the law school. Many are fine lawyers too.  It's a nice, boutique law school with some very decent programs.

Do NOT go to a non=ABA accredited school in the US. The states that you can practice in will be vary limited as will any potential job offers.

Unless you are going to work in North Carolina, both schools will not have a lot of clout with law firms. Thus, I would take the one that costs you the least overall. My only concern is that being in the top 48% isn't as easy as it may sound. Don't let your rather strong LSAT fool you. The exam doesn't have the corelation that you think it should have as to law school grades.

You might have a shot at Georgetown and Cornell. You also have a good shot at Chicago, Penn, Berkeley, Northwestern, Columbia and Duke, Congrats.
