Hou is much cheaper but heard new stds of 2.5 to grad, req'd curve for all 3 yrs has 1L's going nuts, dumpy bldg that leaks and floods.
SMU very expensv. overrated and Dallas does not support law school with hires as much as Houston does UH. SMU much easier after 1L over.
I have no other options. Both places have decent job placement rates, have not seen any new ## on attirition at UH since the stds. change.
