Tulsa / TU Now Tier II
« on: March 13, 2012, 02:58:05 PM »
For some reason, there has been a lot of negative discussion relating to TU on this board so please allow me to pump some sunshine about TU Law.

First, in the last three years we have climbed 48 spots in the U.S. News and World Reports Law School Rankings. This means the 3L's enrolled today were admitted to a Tier IV school and will be getting a degree from a Tier II school.

Second, this is only a personal anecdote but I am graduating with low, low, five figure debt that I should be able to pay off in a year and a job. While at TU I've been offered five job opportunities in Tulsa and OKC. Anybody who tells you the job market in this area is soft does not know what they are talking about.

Third, I received a scholarship from TU and kept it all three years. The grading curve is not hard and if you are willing to put in the time and effort you will keep your scholarship. I was also able to get another scholarship from a local energy company that helped pay for school while I was enrolled.

Fourth, the staff and faculty here are amazing. I got into all three Oklahoma law schools and TU was the only one that felt like home.

Fifth, we've rocketed through the rankings over the past three years and I see no reason to believe this will stop. Going to TU is like buying Google at the IPO and selling at its peak. I have loved my time here.
