Law School Admissions / Re: Texas Tech
« on: May 17, 2007, 02:43:26 PM »
Tech very well might be the best option. That debt, I can handle. Texas, I know does not have a public defender system at all. It is very ad-hoc, and hence why they are criticized so heavily in capital cases. Colorado has a fully-funded, state-wide, PD office. I might want to return to Denver. I don't know: I just don't know.

Yeah, SMU is steep. I am just not sure I want to take out that much debt. Especially since I find BIGLAW abhorrent. I am trying to decide between Tech and Tulsa. Tulsa offered me an 80% scholarship. I could graduate law school for next to nothing. Tech gave me an in-state waiver, and an extra 1k per year. in-state really makes a difference. I would need to let SMU know by June 1st. I just do not know what the hell to do....

So here I am, May 17th, and completely undecided.

What do you plan to do after graduation if not big law a few years to get experience/training?  Not antagonizing you, genuinely curious.  All we seem to hear about is the biglaw stuff.

Thanks

Public Defender or DA. I think I could go either route. But with the lower pay, I am not sure I can take on that kind of debt, even though I would love to go to SMU.

Hi all. I am hoping to illicit some advice. SMU came through with an acceptance for me, but no money. I am just not sure I want to take out that much debt. Especially since I find BIGLAW abhorrent. I am trying to decide between Tech and Tulsa. Tulsa offered me an 80% scholarship. I could graduate law school for next to nothing. Tech gave me an in-state waiver, and an extra 1k per year. in-state really makes a difference. To top it all off, I am still on the waitlist at Denver and Oklahoma. Also, I would need to let SMU know by June 1st. I just do not know what the hell to do....

So here I am, May 17th, and completely undecided. Any thoughts, opinions? My goal is to get back to Denver (where I am now) after law school. If I could go to Tulsa, anyone think it is remotely possible to get internships at the Colorado Public Defender?

Congrats on the conditional. I would kill (almost) even for that ;)   

Guess I am just rolling my dice on the waitlist. Better than last year though (just a flat out rejection). We will see what happens, but congrats, nonetheless.

Yeah...well at this point I have no idea what is going on with my app and if I have any chances of even getting in.

Better than a rejection or a witlist, I say. I know it is frustrating. I really need to stay here as well, and I am not seeing that as happening for me. Not very encouraging to get off the waitlist when some folks have not even heard back yet.

You need to get the financial aid stuff started with the school that you are planning on attending at this point. YOu certainly do not want to to wait till July - August to do so. If things change, the loan can be cancelled at one school and re-issued to the other one.

Tron was a good flick.

I watched War Games the other day on one of my HD channels, and I must say, it lost some of its flair as I grew a little older..
