Hi Tiger....My biggest concern about Tech are job opportunities in Dallas and Houston, because it is so far out. As a 2L, have you have luck looking for summer employment?

I interned with a firm way down in the Valley last year (Harlingen TX), but I know plenty of people who found summer jobs in DFW, Austin, and even one friend who's headed down to Houston this summer. Really it's all about networking and "knowing someone", same with any other job but having good grades too doesn't hurt (something I unfortunately don't have).

I would say finding a job in DFW wouldn't be too hard if you were towards the top of your class. Austin or Houston would be a little harder because not as many firms come out to Tech to interview from there, but still possible. The girl I know thats gonna work in Houston just mailed a dozen or so firms in Houston and even got one to fly her down there to interview/spend the weekend.

Honestly Lubbock may be the hardest place of all to find an internship because its completely overrun by Tech Law students who don't want to have to sublet in another location or are taking a couple summer school classes in addition to working.

Hey guys, I'm a 2L at Tech and posted on this board quite a bit back when I was looking into schools myself. If you have any specific questions I can try and answer them, though I doubt I'll check up on this board daily. I tried to keep up occasionally with the one last year and the thing went for something like a hundred pages.....

I will say that I love Tech Law and Lubbock isn't as bad as some make it out to be. It's actually quite livable and the only downside is its relative isolation from seemingly everywhere else in Texas, so road trips can be quite lengthy.

And I couldn't find the link, but somewhere on Tech's main website is a "future projects" page that has blueprints and rendering of the new addition to the law school they've just started working on (which for some reason seemed to kick off right around the time we began studying for finals). Unfortunately for me I will probably have graduated before they're done working on it, but all '07 1L's will probably get two full years to enjoy the new courtroom and lecture hall.

Anyway, good luck with the application process and if you get in to Tech Law definitely come out for a visit. Admitted Students Day (typically mid spring) is a good time to visit because the school provides booze and then has a chili cookoff following tours and even a simulated class, plus you get to visit with dozens of current students.

Hope that helps, and like I said I'll answer any specific questions I can (assuming I remember to come back here  :))

Hey Tiger,
 I might be able to pick up some Yuengling before I depart birmingham this afternoon for the 3 day trip to Lubbock. I'll try to check this before I leave. I'm personally not a fan of beer, but one of my good friends swears by it so I understand the request.

Naw, you can just bring a few gallons of Milo's sweet tea  :)

Or some Conecuh Ridge Whiskey......ooooooh yeaaaaaah

Belvior is good.  There are a lot of positions in the N. Va/DC area but the one thing you must do is to join the Army Navy golf club as soon as you get commissioned. 

This can be arranged, I do love me some golf.

I've also thought about heading over to Benning, because then I could live in Auburn. Oh yeaaaaaaah.....

Anyway, no need worrying about this now.....Lubbock for two more years.  :-\

TexasTiger, are you going JAG?

Yup. After I got commissioned they put me in the educational delay program. Once I pass the bar they'll switch me over to the JAG Corps basically. Actually quite a few ed delay guys at Tech. I'm friends with a couple Marine 2LT's who are doing basically their version of the same program.

secondly being a dry city is going to be a slight hassle. I guess i'll be going to the depot to stock up tomorrow.

I've heard a new rumor that the SuperTarget they're building around Brownfield Highway and Milkwaukee Ave. is going to be able to sell beer and wine because it's outside of the city limits. But this is just a rumor, and I thought that area had been fully annexed already, so who knows.

Texas Tech moved up in the rankings?

Well not yet.....I'm just saying getting rid of the forum art work is better than moving up.

Had I known sooner, I might not have transferred - the art was THAT BAD!!!

Georgetown right?

I was up in DC right after finals and loved that area.

I've gotta figure out a way to get the Army to assign me to Ft. Belvoir or the Pentagon after OBC.....norther VA/DC is gorgeous.

Maybe sometime you can plan a weekend trip to Ciudad Acuna. Mexico rocks way harder than Canada.

All 1L's should visit Acuna one weekend.  ;D

We took a crew down, but alas, me and Gujuguy didn't get to see the "donkey" show in Boystown and left quite dissapointed..... :-\

they took down the crappy art work in the forum!!!11

There is a God. This is seriously bigger news than Tech moving up in USNews rankings.  ;D

Anyone have any hints on how to acclimate a 9 yo cat to a new apartment?  I'm hoping he adjusts well, but anythign I can do to make it easier would be better.

Put butter on your cats feet. Least thats the "home remedy" our vet told us when we moved back in the day. Worked too, I think the cat just spends all day licking off the butter and once he's done he can't smell the scent of his old surroundings, or something to that effect...........in any case, its just funny to watch your cat lick butter off his feet for hours. Almost as funny as feeding tootsie rolls to dogs.  ;D
