Texas vs Cornell
« on: May 21, 2008, 05:08:44 PM »
If I know for sure that I want to work in Houston when I'm done, does it make any sense to go to Cornell over Texas???

(Assume finances are not a factor)

Not a bit. Go to Texas and don't look back.

If you saying you want to work in Houston the rest of your life (which you really can't) then I'd say it dosen't matter. However, you have no idea where you will be in 10, 20 or 40 years! Both are great schools, but there is no doubt the Cornell has a much better national reputation and prestige.

TITCR. I love it when people tell others what they really do or don't know.

Ummmm....Texas is a pretty national school, even if it's not as national as Cornell. You're not stuck in Texas your whole life with a UT degree. And anyways, maybe the OP does want to be in Texas their whole life. Great work experience and job performance, alongside a UT Law degree, will give OP a good deal of mobility in the long-run.

Not really. UT is king in Texas.
