I chose to go to UH because it has one of the cheapest tuitions in the country, is located in a diverse, major metropolitan city, and has the third largest legal market in the US with not a lot of other competing graduating law students.
I think any of my profs classes would be worth sitting in on..shoot me a pm if you would like specific names.
I don't mean to nitpick, but is Houston really the third largest legal market in the country? I'm thinking New York, Chicago, DC, Los Angeles would all be bigger.... Maybe Top 5, definately top 10, but 3rd?
I guess to be super formal...it hops around between 3-6 with DC, San Francisco, Boston, and LA. OP is correct that Houston is 4th largest city. Another thing to consider when looking at that though is how many strong law schools there are in Boston, NYC, LA, DC. No competition like that in Houston.
