Wow, if a girl asked me if I was going to marry her after 2 months I would probably tell her to hold that thought, that I had left my phone in my car... and then smoke the tires while attempting to get away... you are quite the man

Maybe Papa Bear felt the same way about her. I hear it happens to a rare few people. I wish I were that lucky.

*wonders if she should get out of the "guys" thread*

Hey, I just noticed this so Im gonna hijack the thread... you are my female URM numbers twin... well.. I got 3 LSAT points on you and you got .1 GPA on me... but its pretty close

I don't think this thread is particularly "topic conscious" lol.

3 LSAT points is a big deal! I wish I had 3 more for me! .1 GPA sooo not a big deal. Do you have the weird LSAC/Degree GPA split, too?

So are you going to join me at WCL? :)

i'm glad it makes you happy when a man will pump your gas for you.  that makes me happy knowing it makes you happy.

In fact, I was out with a friend of mine last weekend and I was -totally- out of gas and had to pull over. He immediately got out to pump for me (we used my card). That was Saturday. I was still so tickled by it on Monday that I gave him a huge hug and kiss for it when I saw him. *sheepish shrug*

Do you pump the gas for a woman when you are riding with her and she pulls up to a gas pump?  if you don't I already don't like you.  end of story. 

and for the women who clicked this thread despite the title: if you are with a man and you pull up to a gas pump and he doesn't get out, just leave him as soon as you can. 

Ooooooohhhhhhh ... I <3 a guy who will pump gas for me!!!

I hate pumping gas. I don't know why, but it really just annoys me. Of course I am perfectly capable of doing it myself. And of course I dont expect a guy to do it for me. And I would by no means be angry or resentful if he didnt.  It's a little thing, but I think it's the sweetest thing if he does. Maybe I'm just easy to please.

Quite possibly you will find a job where you can make great money AND love it. Also, you can find other things in your life to fulfill you - pro bono work, family, etc.

I was (okay, I AM) having a problem deciding between the school I really want to go to and the one that would be waaaaay cheaper but still fairly comprable rankings-wise. One of my professors said to me, "Go where you will be happy. You can always make the money back, but you can never get your time back."

I know that's not much help, but that's what I keep telling myself as I stare $170K debt in the face. *shrug*

Good luck!

Then again, I10 SUCKS no matter WHAT time of day you decide to venture out that way.  No offense to anyone who lives in Katy...

Yep That and 610 will never be right no matter HOW many lanes they throw on those Highways

You can get to Katy by taking the Westpark tollway now, which is absolutely freaking fabulous. Get an EZ tag and take the toll road, avoid nasty I-10 traffic.

I say again -- Live inside the loop if at all possible!! There are great housing options, there's really no need to move soooo far out. Take out an extra $150/month in loans if you must. That's my take.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: In at SMU, rejected at ASU?

so if its not national, what are my job prospects if i attend? the chances of getting a pretty good job in Dallas/ft worth are pretty good right? (good job = $70K + for me)

In a nutshell, the answer to your second question is 'yes,' your chances of making $70K+ are pretty good.

For more specific information about job prospects you can check out http://www.nalpdirectory.com/ to see if firms you are interested in recruit on your campus. You can also contact SMU to see if they can give you a list of firms that recruit on campus, or if they can provide you with a list of where recent grads are working. Lastly, you can look at firms where you want to work and see if there are SMU grads there.

Good luck. :)

Just remember - High grades and good networking = better job prospects.

Thank you for weighing in everyone! :) I really appreciate it.

Blue... :P :P :P :P :P

But you are welcome Silent, I am sure you will make the best decision for yourself when it is time.

You're a sweetheart. "When it's time" is really what it boils down to -- soon, I will have no choice but to MAKE a choice!

No on both counts (not that SMU has even bothered answering yet).

National schools = Top 20, give or take 5.
