Does your divorce decree specify that you cannot move out of state?  Mine does not.  Check your Final Decree.

Wow, Smack...congrats! I'm suprised you passed up UH for Tech too. I'm in a similar situation though - even if I do get accepted to UH, I'm still leaning toward Tech. If all goes as planned, I'll be moving August 1st. Do you have housing lined up yet?

I just mailed a deposit on a house off Quaker.  I am a single mother, so Lubbock will be way better for the boys than Houston.

If you go to Tech, I'll see you there.  ;D

One thing about Lubbock - it's a crappy little town. The upshot is that virtually nobody stays there after law school; most students move on to one of the major cities in Texas. Their alumni base is very large and very strong. If you want to stay in Texas, you will have many more options coming from Tech than people on this board will lead you to believe.

BTW, good luck with UT!


I have decided on Tech too.  They offered me a great scholarship, which I was going to decline until I visited the campus.  The faculty/students I met were awesome!  Can't say enough about how welcoming everyone was.  Never thought I would pass up U of H for Tech.  When you moving Rukiddin?

Most law schools have a fridge, microwave, etc for the students. I pack a couple sandwiches for my long days and will often supplement that with a Clif Bar or something equally portable and easy to stick in my bag.

Hope this is true at Tech.  I would be set.

Avoid the free pizza at every student org meeting. You will get fat enough from the stress and alcohol.

For those looking for some good nutritional advice, I am a huge fan of the Abs Diet program from the Men's Health editors. http://www.amazon.com/Abs-Diet-Six-Week-Flatten-Stomach/dp/1594862168/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/002-5094299-0598468?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1174874679&sr=8-1
I was a four year collegiate athlete with a minor in sports science (not the most impressive credential but I'll hang my hat where I can) and the methodology of the book is sound & easy to follow.

I like the articles on this website.  Very smart guy and well written articles.

I hope to work out harder in law school.  I figure it should be easier than now because now I am working 50+ hours a week.  The school I am going to attend has a great gym.  The thing I am most concerned about is my meals.  I try and eat every two hours.  Anybody have any ideas on that?

I did not get a scholarship offer in my acceptance letter.  I waited a couple of weeks and called.  I was told that if I was going to be getting an offer, I would have received it within days of my acceptance.  :-[

Did anyone get a financial aid offer from Tech yet?  I got a nice scholarship, but will need the loans for living expenses.

In case anyone else is curious, I called Tech and they said that they are going to start sending financial aid awards the first week of April.

I also work as a parlegal.  I pretty much told anyone who would listen that I was applying, about my acceptances, etc.  Was just too exciting to keep to myself.  Last week, I decided on a moving day (May 26) and gave notice.  My department is very busy and I know paralegals in my area can be few and far between.  I guess it depends if others can take up the slack if your firm cannot hire someone within the standard two weeks.

I understand where you are coming from.  I told everyone at first that I was considering a part time local program, even though I was not.  I guess part of me was worried that I would Be canned!  Some attorneys told me that it was a mistake to try and work and go part time.  Once I gave them my final decision to move and attend full time, they were very supportive.
