I know that trying to get Texas residency is nearly impossible; it has a ton of restrictions and requirements.

Congrats Grahamers and thanks for expediting your removals. Going to GMU to talk to Dean Richard to see whats up with the WL and see if I can help my case. Hopefully I'll be going to law school this fall.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: UT Austin
« on: June 09, 2004, 10:12:47 PM »
UT Austin is considered a "regional school" but a highly ranked school (#15). Although most students do end up in texas or the surrounding states, it shouldnt be too difficult for a UT student to find a job outside of the region. UT is a very large law school and has a lot of courses and speciality programs. As such, many students would already be exposed to different firms across the country and around the world. It may be more work on the student's part if a partical firm in an area you are interested in doenst recruit from UT, but you can always solicit interviews by applying.

Baylor, on the otherhand, is definetly a texas school. Even though it has a strong rep and is known for its trial advocacy program, it will be much more difficult to break out of the texas region. It is the smallest school in texas and doesnt have specialized law programs. Ir is a VERY strong school in texas so if you are looking to stay in texas its a great school to consider (esp if you want to be a litigator). You can still find a job outside of texas if you do get into baylor though. The head prosecutor against nixon in the watergate scandal was a baylor law alum and I met a lawyer in Belgium who was a partner at a firm that had offices in paris, brussels, and berlin. If you are looking at texas schools but want to practice else where, look at UT and even SMU. Baylor is good, but you have to remember that it is small and located in a small town.

Wait List / Re: Waitlistsed then rejected?

Well its hard to tell without seeing the exact letter, but it sounds like you did get rejected. Many students do get rejected off the waitlist especially if they waitlisted a lot of students and the majority of the students accepted the waitlist offer.

Wait List / Re: Going to meet with the dean....
« on: June 02, 2004, 08:06:25 PM »
I am going to go visit the dean from GMU. I've kept in constant contact with her via emails and snail mail and called her last week (for the first time) asking her if she received my updated transcript and address change. I am going to send another letter via snail mail with an updated resume, continued interest letter, and "i'm looking forward to seeing you in a few weeks" letter. Some have said that GMU has been rather rude to some, but the dean has always been more than cordial to me and GMU has a discussion board thread that she monitors and responds to daily. This is my only chance at getting into law school this year, so its all or nothing. Good luck, if your in the same dilemma.

Thanks for the info, and to address an earlier thread, no I am not a stalker. My LSAT score was really low so the fact that I have been WL is a blessing. I am being overtly cautious and I am at the point were I am "crossing all t's and dotting all i's." The school has less than a 100 left on the WL and its rummored that they may take up to 20 off that list, so I am doing everything in my power to make it on that list of 20. (dont worry, I dont own a tent and dont plan on purchasing one come august).
