I would take the full ride and bust your ass for a year and get out.  I mean, study like you've never studied before.  I've heard they are sticklers there for class participation and stuff, like having to do briefs for every case, but then the CivPro final is multiple choice questions or something.  If you work hard and flourish, you should be able to transfer

I can't wait for University of North Texas to start the law school in a couple of years.  Maybe Denton biglaw will become the hot item?

If that school gets off the ground, it will be in Dallas.

Not if my other option was Waco!

Well, all things considered, I'd rather be in Austin than Houston.

I guess my snarky attitude about west Texas wasn't distinct enough there about the Amarillo biglaw. 

TTU has a much larger enrollment than Baylor, by about 200 according to US News.  I don't know how long that has been going on for, but I think that helps show the mobility that Baylor would afford vice TTU.  I think Travis County is explained by state government hiring. 

I can't wait for University of North Texas to start the law school in a couple of years.  Maybe Denton biglaw will become the hot item?

Also, do you want to have to drive 30 minutes from campus to buy booze?  That's too high a transaction cost in November and April for my mind.

Baylor is considered below UT, UH, and SMU, but above Texas Tech and South Texas.

IMO, if an applicant doesn't have a scholarship to Baylor, I think Tech is a better choice.  Baylor has marginally better NLJ250 placement (about 4% vs. 8%) and clerkship placement, but the last time I checked tuition was more than double.

I'm just curious, but where do you live?  Are you in Texas?  Tuition, of course, would depend on in-state classificiation, but moreover, Lubbock is a five-hour drive from Dallas, let alone Austin, SA, and Houston.  There are far more BU grads here in Houston.  I think there's a distinct feeling that TTU feeds nicely into Amarillo big law.  That said, I'd pay double not to live in Lubbock.

Yeah, it's odd.  Considering the epic $h!tholeness that Waco is (I think arguably it's the worst city in America for a population of about 100K), there's some cool food there, between George's, Bari's III, and that Vietnamese place next to campus; it's a survivable town.

if you're serious, and not BSing, PL me.  I go to STCL. 
All I would say is, if you want to do criminal work and you're cool with living in Houston or east/south Texas, then come here. 
Otherwise, go to Baylor and enjoy drinking at George's when you're not at fun baptist ice cream socials.

I feel your pain.  My first final is next Friday, and I really don't need another stress in my life right now.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: UM Out of Top 100

Actually, UofH (aka Cougar High) is a festering TTT in decline.  They are only ranked where they are because they managed to block Texas A&M from buying South Texas. 

I'm not going to say that my school is the finest, god knows, I'm trying to transfer, but UofH is only where they are by luck.  I haven't met a single student from there who likes the place.

What's funniest about these rankings is that South Texas continues to rack up moot court/mock trial titles, and yet the Trial Advocacy ranking in US News falls.

About Anadarko.  It looks like they aren't slowing down their growth in Colorado/Wyoming.
