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

I'll see for myself, I'm coming out at the end of the month to check the school out.  How is Lubbock as far as apartments go, do they tend to fill up fast.  Where I'm living right now it's nearly impossible to find anything.  I'm thinking about coming out at the end of June (I'm in school until June 15th and then have jury duty the following week, lucky me!) to look for a place.  Just wondering how hard it is to find places (I'd rather live a little ways away from the university anyway) out there.  Also how is crime out there, I can't seem to find much information about that.  Well I be safe walking the streets at night, or am I going to be in a constant state of fear for my life?

Sorry for all the questions, hard to get information about a little city in Texas when you're in California.

Here is a link on the crime rate...  I went in March to check housing, visit the school, etc.  They have a ton of duplexes for rent.  Some are brand new.  I looked at a new 3 bedroom that was only $850.  Rent is LOW.  It may be that June is a good time to look.  There may be a bigger selection after graduation.

Call me crazy, but I am from a big city and I think a small town might be a nice change of pace.  When I visited Lubbock...there was nothing spectacular about it, but there seemed to be enough to do.  There were a lot of restaurants , bars, movie theaters, etc.  One of the locals told me that Lubbock does not even have a traffic report!  For the last 6 years, I have been spending an hour or more driving 16 miles to work every day.

I got an invitation for March 30th.

One L at Tech Law here, if you have any questions post em up or send me a message. This was a great resource when I was deciding on what school to attend. It is Spring Break for us right now, so Ill check the forum in a few days and try to answer any questions you have. I wont have time to check the forum after this week.
Good luck to all of you!

Thanks for offering to answer questions.  I have so many I do not know where to start.  One thing I have been wondering about is the academic success Dean.  I met her at the function.  She was saying that she suggests that students study 55-60 hours per week, not including class time.  This seemed like a bit much to me.  What is your experience?  Also, are you required to go to her for sessions?

So far in at Baylor and Alabama.

The Dean at Alabama loved the military stuff mentioned in my application and thinks I'll be a "great fit" at Alabama and then threw buckets of $ at me.

If anyone's keeping track, they're definitely on the list of military friendly schools.

Yeah Boss!

Ditto, ditto, ditto.  I think we should all quit asap and have the "Summer of George" and sit in our recliners until our muscles atrophy!

Just wanted to share my experience at the Tech day for accepted students with scholarships that was held this past Friday.  Not sure if there is another thread out there regarding this event or not.  Basically, I was blown away by the reception we received at Tech.  We had lunch, sat in on a Con Law class, were given a tour by 3L's, had a question answer session with current 3L's, observed a mock trial by the Board of Barristers, and had dinner with faculty.  Everyone, faculty included, was warm and welcoming.  The fact that the faculty took their personal time to sit and visit with us and have dinner with us was awesome.  The Dean and his wife were there as well and took time to meet and visit with each and every prospective student.  One of the things that the Dean said was that if the faculty cares so much about prospective students, imagine how much they will care when you are enrolled in their class.  Also, in the the Con. Law course that we observed, the professor knew each student by name!  The whole experience was VERY different from other schools I have visited.
