Are you getting $15k off of non-resident tuition? If so, wouldn't that translate to a delta of $30k per year?

Wait until you get the rest of your results in is the TCR.

But, in the offhand chance these really are your only two options, then it depends on what you want to do with your law degree. GULC is better for Biglaw/Portability. UT is better if you want to do something locally where networking is important.

UT if you don't mind the prospect of staying in texas (not that UT doesn't travel....just have to be a lot higher in the class, i'm guessin)

If you want to live in Texas go to UT.

Otherwise GTown...also it depends on what kind of law you want to do. If you're doing non-profit or public defending then go for the cheaper school.
