I considered going back to Texas for law school, so I asked lots of my Texas friends about schools. I can tell you I constistently that UT Austin is a magnificent school to go to! It's definitely a top-notch legal education for a good price, although it's very stressful, I hear. Still, it's the only national school in the state,.
SMU is a pretty campus, and really broke through a barrier when it passed Baylor in ratings, however, I wouldn't go there unless you are thinking about practicing in Dallas. University of Houston is supposed to be getting better and better, but, to be honest, some people have told me it is "ghetto". I don't know if that type of thing matters to you or not...Good luck!
