I ran across this blog site after "googling" South Texas College of Law, so I figured I would give it a try. I am from California, and graduate from Berkeley this May. I have been accepted to STCL and am trying to do my "research" on it. I apologize if I am chiming into an already established forum, but if you have any insight that can help me form a more solid idea of Houston, the South Texas campus, the people, etc...I would greatly appreciate it. I have submitted my first seat deposit, but am still waiting on a few other schools. Thanks!
Greetings, fellow Berkeley alum
First off, if you're going to seriously consider STCL, you need to be set on practicing in Texas (Houston especially). STCL is well-regarded in Texas but an STCL degree unfortunately does not travel well out-of-state. The benefits of practicing in Texas are many, however -- large legal markets that are uniquely insular (Texas firms like to hire Texas grads), great cost of living, down-to-earth southern hospitality and more. For more of my impressions, read the following thread:
I also suggest running searches here and on top-law-schools.com for more information on STCL, Houston and the idiosyncracies of the Texas market.
