Quote from: Oliver on March 29, 2007, 03:16:46 PMI think they are making ~$60-80,000 per year. Houston is a large market and even the smaller firms tend to pay pretty well. Probably 25 lawyers and below.I don't think Houston's market is that easy because there are three law schools in that city. South Houston has a big class of about 300 students. In addition, UT is not far away with about 500 students per graduating class and not to mention graduates from University of Houston, Baylor, Texas Tech etc. I wonder how many of Southern Texas law gradutates end up jobless or settle for non-law jobs. Even with that being said, it's still better than the no-name school in Atlanta facing competition from GSU, UGA, Emory, Alabama, USC, UNC, all Florida schools, etc.

Don't forget to mention that John Marshall won the regional mock trial competition last year and will have a law review next year.
AtlantaSteveIf i do decide to go to JMLS-Atl then I'll be living with my parents at least for the first year to cut down on living costs, but the bad part is they live about an hour northwest of Atlanta, in Ellijay. So I'll be commuting. Do you live close by the school or do you commute as well? I know Atlanta traffic is a nightmare, however I'm willing to make the truck to save $10,000+ in rent, utl., food, etc. for the first year. I'm considering getting a place the second and third year more near the school but by then I may be able to find a roommate and be able to work some during the summer to save up.
I'm from Florida and really want to stay in the general area.
