I will most likely go to DePaul though.  STCL gave me no moola, and NIU is too small.

Yeah, but what is DePaul tuition like?  Is DePaul still cheaper after taking into account that STCL is less than 20k per year?  I know many law schools cost 30k and then give a 7-8k schoolarship.  Just something to consider.

How did the faculty come across??

So far, I've met Susan Crump (wonderful woman with a great sense of humor), Gerald Treese (who reminds me of an old school, hard ass football coach), Cathrine Burnett (very friendly, reminded me of one of my undegrad professors).  Overall, I liked the people I met.

Also, what's the average class size for entering students?  thxs

USN&WR lists 958 FT and 296 PT.  Dividing those numbers accordingly, you can assume 319 FT and 74 PT for each year's entering class.

Just me...and damn, I'm hot.   ;D  Actually, I was kinda cold wearing a sleeveless dress.  But I thought it would be typical Houston weather, hot and sticky, but instead was cold and drizzly.  Oh well. 

South Texas seems to be a pretty good school.  The Dean is the former dean for NIU, a school that offered me a free ride, and one that I am still considering.  He gave me a lot of great information about both schools.  I will most likely go to DePaul though.  STCL gave me no moola, and NIU is too small.

i agree with the first paragraph. and hope decide on st;) i need some kind of distraction during those long boring lectures...

I got my acceptance from STCL last week.  Likebutta, you'll probably hear from them soon.  Good luck.

They didnít invite me to the admitted studentsí reception, but Iíve been there before.   I liked the place except for the parking hassle.  They seemed to have nice crowd there, and most people seemed nice.

Still waiting to hear from them here. I think I've pretty much ruled them out, but my whole mindset could change with an acceptance.

DePaul's tuition is about $27K, but I got a $10K scholarship, so that's still less than STCL, but only by a couple of grand.  STCL a good school if you want to do litigation.  I'm not sure about their other programs.  But cost of living in Houston is fairly cheap.  It had a commuter school feel though.  I guess because it's in downtown Houston, and people don't want to hang out down there after dark.

just my opinion, but i do NOT think its that late in the process. i was waitlisted at southwestern, and the bastards let me know that they may call me the day before classes and offer me a spot. not that i will still be in la...

the point being that stcl is certain to have last minute drops, and if you do not require a scholarship that should aid your prospects, since a lot of people will drop out only due to cost. stcl also completes their accepts very late possibly to give themselves a more definite roster, in that most people will probably have made up their minds where to attend by this time.

keep your chin up... if they havent waitlisted you so far it may be a good sign.

~C'mon South Texas!! I'm leaving for Las Vegas this weekend and I would like a little closure so I can fully enjoy my week in Sin City. A decision in the next 2 days would really help me out!  8)
