Congratulations Robot!

As an Aside, and by no means take this as a rude comment directed at you, but why is Baylor giving out admission decisions over the phone as you have said, along with other people when it specifically states on their website that admission decision cannot be given out over the phone, fax, or email?

I'm not questioning your admission or anything, mostly I am just cynical because I have not received a response from Baylor yet from my application and check the online status hourly it seems. HeHe, but it seems strange to me that they would make such a big deal about not giving out admission decisions by that method but still continue disregarding that policy. Sorry, I'm off my soap box, now watch, i'll probably get my letter today! HAHA! Congrats and maybe I'll see some of you in Waco, next fall!

Thanks for your input. I have only been in Texas less than a year but have been here every summer of my undergrad for the past four years. I am by no means a native Texan, but I am a Texan at heart. I have 3 Texas Flags in my one bedroom apartment that my wife and I share. One over my bed, one in the family room and one in our hallway. I'm living in Round Rock right now, but am planning on moving once I get my acceptance letters. My first choices are SMU, then Baylor, I applied to UT-Austin, but not having residency, etc I am not counting on them. I would prefer Lubbock from the sounds of things over Houston being that it is so dry there. I hate the muggy humidity in the summer down in Houston. I like SMU because of its connections to the DFW area and its good rep for corporate law. Baylor is nice being that my wife has family there and I am addicted to Dr. Pepper from the Museum. Austin is great as well. As I have said before I am addicted to Central Texas. As a third choice, Texas Tech doesn't seem too bad, as long as I accept the fact that I will have to move back to DFW where I want to be and practice there. Three years in the middle of nowhere might just outweight the humidity of Houston. Anyone who's been there in the winter, how cold is it relative to Austin? I came from the Ohio where rain and snow are no stranger, God knows I don't want to go through that again as I absolutely hate the state. It seems like I'm just going to have to make the 8+ hour drive out there and check it out, but I really appreciate all the help y'all have given me. Hopefully we get a Texas Board soon...

Hey y'all I need a huge favor.

I am not a native Texan but have moved here to go to law school and stay in this state forever because I love it. I have applied to Baylor, SMU, Texas Tech, and Houston. I am familiar with the Central Texas Area and have been around Austin, Waco, and DFW a lot. I really like and am partial to these cities and yes even Waco isn't the bad even though y'all make it sound like hell. Regardless, I need some opinions on Lubbock I plan to make a trip out that way but I would like some opinions of people who have lived around / near there. Is Lubbock a nice city? I really love the culture and environment in Central Texas and wondered what everyones opinion was on Lubbock because I am really getting curious after hearing some pretty good things about Texas Tech Law.

I would probably be moving back towards Central Texas after Law School, but does anyone think that Lubbock has a decent corporate law field out there?

I just need people's opinions of the area! Thanks in Advance!
