Thanks for info. And the STCL thread is good as well. Does anyone know the typical 1L class schedule? Wondering what times the classes would start/end for rush hour, etc purposes. Thanks again!

Need advice. Pros/Cons of Living in Houston... Attending U of H Law School. Any recommendations on where to live? Boyfriend does HVAC and would be required to drive everyday to/from different jobs - not sure if that means getting a place in town or outskirts is better. I've heard Midtown is good, Medical City, Westheimer? Thanks!

Also still waiting on an acceptance! I got the "we received your FAFSA but you are missing one part... your acceptance letter" email.... And this is my fault?

Yes I would either be at Carlisle or Temple, but Ill figure that one out after I conclude I am positive I want to move to PA :) Where would you recommend living if going to Temple?

Thank you Lovethelaw2010 SO much for that reply. Helped a lot.  Do you have any job prospects in Texas lined up or are you just hoping to come back and find one? Also, you mentioned your firm hiring top half of UT and top 1/3 of UH... is this your firm in PA? Thats awesome if so.  Thanks again.

does anyone know of a good area to live in (nearby, safer, semi-nice atleast) if attending UofH?

cisforcookie -- you are right that Philly is windy.  VERY windy.  I don't think the summer is hot OR humid enough, but I'm from DC 

I did a summer internship in DC - I COMPLETELY AGREE!

If I went to Penn State - Carlisle Campus, would it be possible to live in Philly? I was thinking I'd have to live in Harrisburg? My boyfriend's family and friends are all from Sckyukill County - however you spell it.  Not that I care to live THERE but ultimately closer than farther would be most desired.

I'm thinking I'd be happy in Philly... just cant come to terms with telling my parents/family that I'd be moving several states away! I suppose its reality that most people come to deal with...

Thats good, I wont be the only one in hibernation :) I think the lowest temp in Austin it was this year was around 28-30 degrees... we never had solid ice (yet) this winter! And I LOVE it :) But I also love trying new things...

I live in Austin now and LOVE it. I'm also a baby about cold weather... mainly just driving in the ice. I wouldnt say I LOVE Houston, I could probably get adjusted to it though. I would hate the Houston traffic. I like living somewhere large enough to have things to do, jobs available... but I hate traffic - which obviously could be avoided to some extent depending on where/how close you'd live to a school.

How is Philly very different from Houston? To me it would seem they are both very large cities... I would assume they would resemble each other? 

I'm in at Penn State, waiting on Temple, but semi-positive I will get it.  If I decide to move to PA, choosing between Temple and Penn State will be another topic :) I really like Penn State but from what I hear Temple is the way to go. I'm planning to make a visit up there for ASD end of March. 

In response to kcf, I'd be open to finding a job whereever if I went to Temple or Penn State.  I've even looked into the possibility of coming back to Texas after law school, and taking the Texas bar.  I realize it would be much harder to find a job, but if I stuck with public interest/government, as I am considering, I already work for the State of Texas and know many people who attended law school out-of-state. Just an idea. Right now I'm at the "I have no clue where I want to live/work for the rest of my life..." Rather stressful :)

Thank for all replies!
