Law School Applications / Re: Anybody decided on SMU PT yet?
« on: May 10, 2007, 11:58:47 AM »
I am sure you are aware of this, but just in case - It is more difficult to move from SMU PT to FT than most schools...

Yea I found that real disturbing. You cannot PETITION to change switch to FT until AFTER your first two years in the program and even after that it is not a guarantee. This, my mom and costs are the main reasons I am trying to go to UHLC. You still get access to great professors and are surrounded by wonderful peers. In fact, some FT students take the night classes because that is the only time they are offered.

i don't know that much about the law school except this: it has a very good reputation in Dallas. Some people might think that's insignificant, but consider this:

Dallas is the fourth largest metropolitan area in the country. It's legal market is huge, and SMU is typically the second strongest school to feed it. Compare this to other places that your LSAT and GPA would gain you access to. Say, New York. Cardozo in New York is WAY down the food chain in schools that send a large number of students to NYC. Admittedly, NYC's market is quite a bit bigger, but I think overall you come out way on the top in this comparison.

So I don't know your other options, but i'd say SMU is a very strong choice where your career is concerned.

Mild correction, Houston is the fourth largest metropolitan area in the nation. Dallas is the 4th largest when the Fort Worth area is included.Good advice otherwise.

Well I havent decided on SMU yet, but I am ready to go there if I have to. I loved SMU on my visit. Thecampus is beautiful. It is in a nice part of Dallas and the law school is set up really nicely. My whole thing is the PT status as well and the costs other than that I wouldnt mind it. That is where I will be this fall unless I get in off the UHLC waitlist.

So I have apparently been rejectedadmission/participation in the 6 Week Summer Institute Program. I called them on Monday and they said that all 80 seats had been filled and paid in full. I will get my official rejection letter next week sometime. I am sad, but oh well. Everyone that was able to get in, Congrats and even more to those who are going. I hope to see some of you all at the AIE in Atlanta unless they say I cannot participate in that either...

Oh well I guess since the thread is gone I might as well join in ...

I received an email from Russ Dalbey about how I could secure extreme wealth in a matter of days/months.... only thing is that it was going to cost me around 100G's to just get started... I am thinking I will save my first year's salary and make it happen!!!

I just received an email from Dean Hammers at University of Houston Law Center. I was wondering if anyone else got this email? It basically states that some have been "released" from the waitlist and that no decisions will be made til mid June most likely.
