Thanks Big Tex! Too damn funny man staying up to submit it. I thought i was quick sending it 9/13! I really don't think I have much chance at UofH, but I am just ready to hear from someone! Good Luck with the rest of your apps!

My online-status at Univ. of Houston changed from "Complete" to "Under Review - Your decision will be made in December
Big Tex
When did you send in you app for UofH? My status still says"Application received you will be notified if anything is missing" I submitted it on 9/13 and was received/complete  on 10/4 .I applied EA. WTF over? Why hasn't my status changed?

I have not heard anything from South Texas either and I applied for spring admission. I think I will call them today, I just don't want to annoy them!

i dont think anyone is dealt grades...good or bad. They are earned
I do not disagree with you at all on the fact that grades are earned, but I have been out of school for almost 6 years. When I was getting my degree I had given up on trying to get into law school and I earned bad grades. So even though I myself may have dealt the cards that hold my chances of getting into law school, unfortunately I chose my cards poorly and now I must play this hand. I don't know if you are right out of undergrad or if you are older, but for me growing older has changed my perspective, goals, and maturity level (although my spelling has not improved any) So the person who dealt this hand is not exactly the same person 6 years later who is trying to go back to law school. I am sure you had great grades and should be proud of that, I didn't mean to try and undermine the value of the hard work that you put in to getting those grades.

Well I changed the subject line. Maybe that will buy me a few points!

It does look like Esq. Could be an adcomm person. And now I think he or she hates me because I posted a question about St. Mary's losing accredidation, when it is a school that I really would love to go to. ESQ I REALLY WOULD LOVE TO GO TO ST. MARY'S.!!! Man what if this person is an Adcomm and they are looking for my file right now. Jeez now I am paranoid, I probably ruined my chances at getting accepted to a school I really would like to go to, just by asking an honest question. I am going to go kick the guys butt who told me this in the first place, and he is a St. Mary's alumni. Damnit! St. Mary's PICK ME!!!!! I will never ask questions about rumors again!

Thanks for the replies! I was in absolutely no way trying to attack or spread false rumors about St. Mary's. I applied to 3 schools and will be ecstatic if I am accepted to any of them (UofH, St. Mary's, and STCL) I visited St. Mary's and it was by far my favorite in terms of the campus atmosphere. I was only concerned because of what I had been told I was worried about spending 3 years and 70k on a JD that would be worthless without accredidation. My fears were unfounded(as I now know) and I HOPE I get the chance to attend St. Mary's!

I live in Austin now and there are always problems with endangered salamanders. Barton springs is still open (although closed temporarily due to the flooding) As for how cold it get's in Lubbock REAL COLD. I grew up in a little town near Lubbock and it's not that the temperature is all that low, but the WIND CHILL is horrible. When it's between 15-20 F and the north wind is blowing 30 miles an hour The wind chill is like -20 f. THAT IS DAMED COLD and there is no way to stay warm as the wind cuts through your clothes no matter how many layers you have on. The weather is not even comparable to Austin. You might as well be in another hemisphere. Although with the cost and caliber of law school that Tech has it would be worth it to go there for three years if you didn't get into Baylor or UT. Cost of living in Lubbock is outrageously cheap as well. Good luck with your decision. And three cheers for TEXAS. Hip Hip Hooray!

IMHO
I grew up in a little town near Lubbock and everyone in my HS went to school there. I being a rebel went to A&M. Anyway the climate really does suck there. My wife is from Houston and even though we would have a free house to live in there she will not move to Lubbock. It is flat, dry , and if you have allergies it is hell, If you don't have allergies you will by the time you graduate. As for the Law school in my opinion is a very good value. If you don't have the numbers for UT and want a much cheaper cost of living than Houston (Uof H) Tech is perfect. I did not apply there because i knew my wife would not move there. Here are my Texas Law school rankings
1. UT
2.Baylor
3.Uof H
4 Tech (cheaper than SMU and probably same job prospects)
5.SMU
6 South Texas
7 Texas Weslyan (tie depending on whether you want to live in Dallas of San Antonio)
7. St. Mary's (tie depending on whether you want to live in Dallas of San Antonio)
8 Texas Southern
This is not based on any scientific reasoning just my very humble personal opinion.
