UF is number one, UCLA is number two.

"The Top 25 Feeder Schools represented approximately 4% of the total admitted applicants in 2017-2018. This is up from approximately 22.67% during the 2016-2017 academic year.
The #1 largest feeder school for 2017-2018 was the University of Florida (635 students). This should not come as too much of a shock as, like most of the schools at the top of this list, the University of Florida has one of the biggest undergraduate enrollments in the nation.
UCLA (625 students) dropped to #2 for this academic year, after being #1 for the previous two years.
Speaking of Florida…the state boasted five schools in the Top 15 for 2017-2018 (and 4 of the Top 7): #1 University of Florida, #3 Florida State University, #6 Florida International University, #7 University of Central Florida, and #15 University of South Florida. Interestingly, the two schools with mean LSAT scores above 151, the University of Florida (156.03) and Florida State University (153.67) both saw significant growth over the past two years. Meanwhile, the three schools with mean LSAT scores below 151, FIU (147.54), UCF (149.59), and USF (150.01), all saw declnes.

Perhaps most surprising, the largest drop over the past two years amongst the Top 25 schools was #20, the University of Southern California. USC experienced an 33% drop from 360 students in 2015-2016 to 294 students in 2017-2018. It is also worth noting that USC had one of the more competitive mean LSAT scores (158.94) among the Top 25 schools.

The biggest gain? That award goes to THE Ohio State University, who moved into #10 on this year’s list on the back of an 18.82% gain over the past two years (340 in 2015-2016 to 404 in 2017-2018)

What is the legal job prospects in Florida outside of Estate planning, money laundering, and mutual funds ran out of the Cayman Islands?

Cross out legal, What are the job prospects in Florida?
Limited career opportunities, plus plenty of rich families that can afford to send Jimmy or Susie from Boca to law school, could also be a factor.

I know a bunch of lawyers who went to UF undergrad. I still don't get the sunglasses on lanyards, jorts, and visor look, but whatever.

Croakies are a timeless classic that are not only functional but highly fashionable.

Florida has a lot of university-first generation go getters that dont understand the game.

The pain train is coming. Wooh woooh!
