Choosing the Right Law School / Re: University of Texas-Austin

Wow this new admissions policy at UT is exciting stuff.  I'm an out of stater headed to UT this fall so I'm a little biased, but you have got to think that UT has a great chance at jumping into the T-14 next year with the addition of some more highly qualified out of state candidates.

Thanks for all the input everyone.  Here is kind of what I'm thinking.  I think UT would be more fun for the next 3 years.  I'm a very social person, I think I would like going out to 6th street etc., and I would love the college town atmosphere in Austin.  However, I think that I also have to take into consideration where I would want to practice.  I certainly don't want to end up practicing BIGLAW in Houston.  I'm not very conservative and although I think a lot of people from texas are great, there are others that give off the "don't mess with texas" attitude that i'm not sure i could deal with.  At this point I'm leaning toward UCLA (perhaps only because I have been preparing myself to go there for the last 4 months), but I'm going to visit both and go from there.  I'm definitely still weighing my options though and more comments would be appreciated.

I really need some help on this one.  I was accepted to UCLA almost 4 months ago so I was really getting psyched to go there.  But..I just received the acceptance from UT today, and now I have no idea.  I have no regional ties to either area.  Ideas anyone?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / In at UT Austin

Got the thin envelope (wtf?) today.  This makes my decision a lot more difficult.  Non-resident, #s on LSN.


I'll most likely be there and would definitely be down to meet up at a bar or something.

  i'm really sorry to hear about your waitlist, I know how badly you wanted to get in. I will be withdrawing, I hope it helps.

I've been complete since mid-november and still no word from UT.  Are they still giving out positive decisions?
