I respectfully disagree that UH is *far* better. It is certainly the best school in Houston (amazing, isn't it, that Houston alone has three law schools?), but outside of Houston I suspect most people don't have a strong opinion about its superiority over Tech.I'd still go to UH though, if only to avoid spending 3 years in Lubbock.
Diet-I must also respectfully disagree with your assessment of the UofH reputation. I do take it that you are a Texas resident, therefore you must know that UofH has a reach much further in Texas than Tech. As a matter of fact the following link clears makes the case.http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,4016101.0.html
