Texas Wesleyan / Re: Anyone else decided on Texas Wesleyan?
« on: April 18, 2007, 06:15:06 PM »
I have finally made the decision to attend Texas Wesleyan. After much consideration and prayer I realized that the appeal offered from other schools could not outweigh the benefit of a local school. Attending Texas Wesleyan allows me to continue working with my current employer, it allows my child to continue his education at the same school, and it allows me to keep my house. Granted I will have an hour long commute each way I fell that TexWes is my best option at this point. I am excited about the strides Tex Wes is making; it improves each year.   I look forward to seeing each of you there.

OKC is in a Capital City and has close ties to local politics. It has a strong alumni base in OKC and the COS in OK is fairly cheap compared to most cities in FL. It really depends on where you want to practice and what kind of debt you'll be looking at.

Mississippi / Re: Going to Ole Miss

I am originally from Memphis, TN but I have lived in Dallas, TX for most of my life. I went back "home" to school at Ole Miss. As far as TSU I am finishing thru the distance learning program. I plan on attending next year but my prefrences would be Texas, Houston, SMU, South Texas and then Ole Miss. Oxford is a great town and the woman are great. Plus Memphis is only a 45 min drive.

I went to Ole Miss for part of my Undergrad, finishing at Troy State currently. Oxford is a great town. Congrats to those going to Ole Miss

The decision should be based on where the poster wants to essentially end up practicing law. Each of these are regional and place well in there own respective city.

PP have you narrowed down your choice? Left with the same choice I chose Tex Wes

I have been accepted to both Texas Wesleyan and St. Mary's. I have also applied to SMU and STCL. Assuming I do not get into SMU I will be left with quite a choice to make. Do I choose St. Mary's with its strong alumni base? Or do I choose STCL due to its legal market and stellar litigation reputation? Or do I go with Texas Wesleyan a new school that has yet to earn any clout outside of Ft. Worth.
STCL, St. Mary’s and Tex Wes are very close in price per semester and offer similar bar passage rates.
STCL offers a better initial shot at BIGLAW and with it a better salary
TexWes is closer to home, is still growing and hopefully improving
St. Mary’s has a strong alumni base all across Texas, many of the state’s judges hail from St. Mary’s.
