Things to consider when chosing a law school...
The decision as to where to attend law school is one requiring deep research and reflection.  When evaluating law schools and reviewing employment statistics, Florida Coastal recommends utilizing the ABA-LSAC Official Guide To ABA Approved Law Schools as a guide.  This excellent resource is tool to use in understanding the numbers and employment data all law schools report.  Some factors to consider in your inquiries of law school include reviewing the percentage of participants reporting data (including salary information), the number of graduates working in full-time positions, and whether graduates are working in positions where bar passage or a law degree is preferred.
