Where should I go next fall? / Re: Texas Tech vs STCL?
« on: June 29, 2009, 12:34:05 PM »
You're just one big ray of sunshine, aren't you?

The OP hasn't even stated that they wanted to stay in the Houston area, and Tech has better stats and I think a better reputation, so I figure it would have better transferability.
And what I said about the differences between STCL and TX Southern was my PERSONAL opinion.  Not anything to get worked up on.

Contract-you should really look into litigation.  That way you can still bite off everyone's head and at least get paid for it.

I've visited Tech, and its a pretty nice campus, and they seem to be doing some updating as well.  I think you'd have a better chance of employment after graduation at Tech.  Besides, their cost of tuition is one of the most (if not the most) affordable in the state!  Besides I personally would worry about mixing reputations (South Texas vs Texas Southern)


Hope this was helpful!

Really?  Yikes, I got one Waitlist from December, and still haven't heard back.  I also got another waitlist just this past month, and both schools are similarly ranked.  Would there be anything to assume from all this?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Albany ($$$) vs. Seattle U. ($)

Thank you all for your replies.  It's helped a lot!

I'm not quite sure where I want to end up city-wise, and I don't exactly have the funding to travel both places just to check it out.  Does anyone know the crime rate/ etc for both cities?

I think OU.  I've visited both schools, and I must say I was a little disappointed with Tech's Library.  I think OU has better resources, a better program and a lot of people have been able to make the move from Oklahoma to working in Texas, especially in the Dallas area.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Waitlist Notification
« on: April 20, 2009, 12:37:13 PM »
One of the schools I was waitlisted at said that there generally isn't much movement on the waitlist until the second deposit is made, so I think waitlist notifications probably won't be sent out until mid-summer?  But this is just my thinking...

Where should I go next fall? / Albany ($$$) vs. Seattle U. ($)
« on: April 19, 2009, 10:08:31 PM »
I've been accepted to both, Albany with a 3/4 tuition scholarship and with that I was able to leverage a small scholarship to Seattle U.  I am really having difficulty with deciding on where to go (I'm from the South, so I'm not exactly close to either law school)

Seattle is ranked slightly higher but I've seen a lot of people on these message boards voting to go for lower ranked schools for smaller debt.  I'd LOVE to have as little debt possible, but I am just wondering if you come from a lower ranked school, wouldn't it be much harder to find a job?

I am also currently waitlisted at a few other upper T2 schools, but I'd love any input.  Thanks!

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Albany or WNEC?

I got accepted into Albany as well!  Did you receive a folder that has some housing information?  I know its kind of silly but I was so excited that rent isn't that expensive in Albany.


PS. I know this post didn't help much, but Congrats anyway!

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Tough Decisions : Which Law School?

My sister just applied for her residency and we're kind of trying to match together to be in the somewhat same geographic region, so I kind of know what you're going through (albeit, this is your HUSBAND and not sister haha)

I think if you attend Tulane, since it does have a name, it could reach NY if you'd like to practice there; however, you'd probably have to work a lot harder to find opportunities that can take you there rather than being conveniently there (if you got into Columbia)

Hope this helps!
