I live in Texas and actually applied to both Temple and Baylor... havent heard from Temple, and was accepted to Spring 2009 for Baylor. Congrats on the scholarships! Thats awesome.
From what I hear, doing my research...
In Texas, Baylor probably ranks 3rd or 4th. It is located in Waco, which is a pretty small town located 2 hours from Dallas or Austin. From what I hear, the campus is very "advanced" and has the most up-to-date technology in Texas. The class size is very small. Baylor is known for its practical adversary approach. I've heard that law school is like a "boot camp" but that many graduates are much more prepared upon graduation than other law school graduates (in the courtroom, anyways). My biggest problem with Baylor, would be the location. I dont see there being many networking/clerking opportunities in that area. I've heard if you want to work in Dallas, SMU is best bet. Houston... UofH. And obviously, UT is above either of those. So I'm not sure sure where Baylor fits in on finding a good job. Admissions employees were very nice during the Houston forum.
Temple is in Philly, huge location difference. I hear the campus is nice, but be careful when leaving the campus due to the location. Obviously, weather is vastly different. I hear if you go to Temple, plan to work in Philly... or if you're at the top of the class you can travel out of that area relatively easy. Dont know much else about Temple...
Hope that helps some?
