I was wondering if anyone who has any insights into the Adcomms would be able so shed some light on how the Part-Time Ranking, as well as the possible combining of the part-time and full time stats being combined has had on the admissions process at UH.  I applied Part-time I have been "in review" since December 2nd so I am just curious if they just take this long normally, or if they are just trying to wait it out.

The closest one to Austin would be St. Mary's Part-Time program in San Antonio...which is not close to round rock. It is not exactly the most mobile J.D. in the state either so you would really have to enjoy San Antonio or one of its nearby cities.  Best of luck

Texas does not have an "evening/weekend program" so to speak.  I cannot speak on whether or not their full-time program has any night classes.  I have heard that if you get in you can ask for some sort of 4 year reduced load thing.

And then as with the previous poster, there are numerous other quality Part-time JD programs scattered around the state so you should check them out.

Good luck!

I heard that SMU started notifying people yesterday.  Anybody in the PT program by chance get a call?

Your a lock for part-time for sure, and you probably have a very good shot at full time.  I am applying to SMU as well with a higher GPA and a much lower LSAT :-( but only to PT so I hope I get in.  good luck!

I had your same GPA and a 162 LSAT and I applied for full time and part-time.  They let me in part-time with 12,000  a year.  My guess is if you get a 158-160 you should get in, if you're 161-162 you should get some scholarship, if you're 163+ you should get a hefty scholarship for PT.
On a side note it took SMU FOREVER to notify me and I think others had the same problem last year.

I was referring to this...If a 152 is the 25th percentile, you can probably get lower than a 158 and still be competitive thats all I was saying.  You probably have to have something like a higher GPA or something to off-set but you get the idea.

how come their 25th percentile is a 152?  It seems strange that a 158 is the lowest possible score you can have and still be competitive when clearly people with much lower scores got admitted...any insight?
