Anyone here know anything about the University of Houston Law School? That is the school I want to go to because it's close to home and relatively cheap compared to other law schools(considering what you're supposed to get out it). U.S. News and World Report ranked it number 70 (surprisingly ranking both baylor and smu higher). Is it difficult to get into? I read that they accept 25% of the applicants. (good odds?) What would you say is a reasonable gpa and lsat score to get admitted? i'd appreciate any input.
Any knowledge of the national rep of Houston? I know it's a good T2 with definite placement in Texas. I live in Texas now, and am hoping to go to law school close by, probably work in TX for a few years, and then move back to the east coast. Or by that time, will it matter more about my law experience than JD?
I go to UH, I love it. I am currently sitting on 2 offers. 1 on the West Coast at a large firm for $100k and 1 in Houston at a very large and prestigious firm for $145k. I had to hustle to get the jobs because I'm not on law review and I'm only top 1/3. The point is that it can be done from UH. Overall, it's really worked out. I have no regrets about my decision. Good luck. Come to UH!
Good to hear someone do well outside ivy.
