i hate moving.
i like dfw, and i just downsized from a house to a 3 bedroom duplex, and will downsize again for law school. i don't want to haul my junk over a long move, so moving across the metroplex is a much better option that across the state.
and i really don't want to end up going to law school in the boonies (texas tech) and having to figure out what to do with my dog over the summer so i can get a summer gig in a real city).
i'm happy with staying in dallas and taking my chances on networking to find a summer gig in dfw
and i'm happy taking my chances with all of the other people i'll be competing against for jobs in dfw so i can stay in dfw after law school.
so smu is great for me.
i'm just lazy like that.
