Can I ask what makes you think you'll get a 170?  I had no clue or expectations going into the LSAT even after a diagnostic test.  I don't want to sound rude, but don't set yourself up for disappointment. 

Secondly, maybe you should rethink why you want to be a lawyer.  If it's really what you want to do, then you'd probably be a little more willing to look at other schools.

That said, I think IF you get the 170 your chances at UT are pretty good, but not definite at all.  I got in w/ money w/ a 3.67/170 if that helps.  I don't think the alum connection does anything for you.  Work on your EC's.  Volunteer at a LegalAid office or and Advocacy Center.

Rivercrest is in a nice spot.  Close to campus, but not too undergradish.  I'm going to look at apts Saturday so everyone wish me luck!  See y'all in the fall.

Ellie, your not starting in the summer, so I don't think you will miss out on the teacher you love.

Yeah I reread the thread and realized that was probably the case.  I think she's just taking the summer off.
Nah, I'm bummed because I've already had THREE coolers and I barely have a buzz. :'(

It's been rough. One chick left the room crying today. She came back ten minutes, alter and I give her kudos for that. If I'd left in that condition, I doubt I would have come back! There is no good reason to make these things closed-book. You spend so much of your time trying to do something as silly as MEMORIZE the black letter, and the second you forget something like... oh.... the SECOND element of summary judgment, you're just screwed.

Don't listen to me. I'm just bitter this week. :-X

Please remind me why I'm going.... Please remind me I love it... Please tell me not to beg UT to let me back in!

Hey! I am from Austin but have been up here in North Carolina attending Wake Forest for the past 4 years. I am graduating in May and then moving to San Antonio with my best friend who will be starting med school there in August. So I will be waitressing or something else mindless for 6 months before starting Baylor in Feb. What about you?

I'm from Houston originally, went to Baylor undergrad, live in Austin right now working at the Capitol, starting back at Baylor in the fall.  It's nice to get a break before you start so you don't get burned out.  That's a smart move!

Hey Moynkr!  Apparently we're a quiet bunch going to Baylor because our thread has died down pretty much.  Where are you from?

Vijay might be boring, but he works real hard which I admire.

I love Phil cause he just seems nice, plus he has cute kids.

Tiger makes me think of someone who mistakenly thinks they are a rock star and I also have heard he's an ass.

Good point... That's something to consider.

ouch.

Just kidding!!  I'd love to have the great kfukuda and his young life skills at Baylor!

Hell, Texas is an inherently better state than any of 'em! (except when you consider the politics...although it is lively and makes for great stories!) Too bad my girlfriend is dead set against living there...never can figure that one out...

And you're still with her why?

That's okay, Becky Beck's a nice lady.  Maybe she'll cut you some slack.
