UH Vs Baylor??

UH Vs Baylor??
« on: February 09, 2008, 03:44:44 PM »
Got in at Baylor summer with 1/2 tuition. First choice was UH, but now I am considering Baylor bc of the money. I do not want to do litigation and am intimidated by Baylors rep on intensity, curve and litigation classes that are required. I am from Houston and went to UH undergrad. I am really torn bt the two. I am thinking about Employment/Labor Law, but am keeping my options open.

anyone else torn bt Baylor and UH.

Need advice!!

Probably UH... but what will be your cost of attendance at each, including living expenses?

Your friend lied to you, sorry.  The median starting salary at Baylor is less than 75k.

Also, I know of two firms in Dallas that pay 90k (not that I know all of them), and both require previous experience.  Where did she end up?

She doesn't lie... She was however Top 10%, Law Review and Fluent in Spanish, which probably helped... She's in San Antonio.

Yes I know about Dallas BIGLAW, thats why 90k was a surprising number.
