Where should I go next fall? / Law schools in DFW
« on: December 27, 2013, 05:01:18 PM »
Hello everyone,

My wife and I are moving to DFW in 2014 and I am interested in attending law school.  My undergraduate GPA is 3.88 and hopefully my MBA (Sam Houston State University) GPA will be 3.90, although I have read that admissions does not take that into account.  I am scheduled to take the LSAT in February.

Here is my dilemma:

I am a veteran and can use the Hazelwood Act for state schools, A&M Law or UNT Law, however UNT is not currently accredited and A&M is not T1 like SMU.  Would it be better to go to A&M and graduate debt free or go into debt and attend SMU?  I plan to apply to all three and the question assumes I can get into all three.  I am 30 and have work experience in Oil and Gas and Finance so I would like to practice Oil & Gas, Corporate, and Contract law in the DFW area. 

Any help is greatly appreciated.
