WL at Fordham via status checker

You guys are worrying too much, in my opinion.  Despite the constant "tug-o-war" amongst posters, it seems that SMU, UH, and Tulane are damn near identical in Texas placement, taking into account self-selection.
I would, however, imagine that proximity would assist Tulane in Houston more so than in Dallas.


e-mail is considerably more convenient and efficient than snail mail and I do not believe that this convenience is lost on admissions departments.  If it is easier for the sender, it is likely easier for the receiver as well.  just my opinion

Georgetown, small white envelope


Why is Texas Tech and not UT, UH, or SMU the one with the lowest unemployment and lowest unknown rate?   

I would guess that it's because they are the only law school located in the entire western half of Texas.  A graduate of TTU would be more likely to take an offer throughout west Texas than would a graduate of SMU, Baylor, or UH (likely more focused on positions in Dallas, Houston, Austin, etc..)
The average first year income of a TTU graduate is, however, lower than these other schools which could be explained by them taking lower paying positions throughout the area (which would likely include El Paso, Lubbock, Midland/Odessa, Amarillo, Abilene)

This is all just a wild guess, btw.

In fact, I'm in essentially the same boat, just with different schools. 
I'm in at SMU and I'd be absolutely happy to go there.  I even had a very well paying job lined up so that I could move to Dallas three months early.  Two weeks ago, I was all set to simply withdraw my other apps to my "reaches", but in the end I decided that it was definitely worth it to wait out my other decisions.

SMU may win out in the end anyway, since not only do I love Dallas, but my two best friends in the world live there.  However, I felt I'd be cheating myself if I didn't wait and give myself the opportunity to weigh out all of my options.
