Where should I go next fall? / Re: Where to Go, focused in state of Texas but willing to consider surrounding area« on: November 09, 2008, 09:00:35 PM »
Did you apply to all 3 of Baylor's available starting quarters? The Spring and Summer starts have lower numbers requirements. Still a longshot, but if you fill out the application on their website, applying is free. So you might as well.
Why are you so quick to discount STCL? It places well in Houston. Or do you have no interest in practicing in Houston?
I wouldn't waste the app fee at UT.
I'm not sure if you'll get in to Tech, but it's worth a try. You may consider applying to Wesleyan and Mary's and see if they offer you any money. If they do, it will bring your costs down closer to what you'd pay at UH and Tech.
If you plan to retake, please do it in December. As you saw last year, Feb scores put you at a major disadvantage.
Thank you all for the answers. The thing about STCL is that my wife is hesitant about moving to Houston, it's hit or miss on the areas and STCL / UH is down town, so if I can avoid Houston I will, I would only move there if I got into UH, just as some may say they would only go to NOLA if they were accepted to an excellent school there.
I'm debating on what to do, I feel strongly about Tech, on one hand I may boost my score some what and get into Baylor, possibly UH (outside shot) but I'd have to jump 10 points, Tech may be my best option, it's coming out that I'm nervous about - how well is the school. The PT into UH is a good idea though.
