I have a similar situation in SMU vs. W&L. I'm probably going to start another thread for myself though. I think what it really comes down to is portability. If you are absolutely, 100% that you could live in Houston the rest of your life, UHouston might be a better choice. I don't know whether you're a trad or non-trad, but at least for me, deciding where I want to live for the rest of my life at age 21 is a little daunting, so I'm leaning towards W&L, which would give me a lot more portability. Obviously it's not that black and white, but at SMU, I feel like my best options would always be in Dallas. Also consider that about 10% of W&L alumni go to practice in Texas each year, and it seems like that pretty much consists of Dallas and Houston.
What I've heard is somewhere between Top 25% - Top Third. I have no idea how far Houston firms recruit into UHouston's class. Are you going to the W&L ASWs this month? Apparently anyone who attends these falls in love with the school.

What's so great about the ASW? Are you worried at all about Lexington?
Journeyman, I am dumbfounded as to how you got into IU and W&L with your numbers. 155 LSAT and you applied to Vanderbilt? Honestly?
