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.
