If you go to Tech, I'll see you there. One thing about Lubbock - it's a crappy little town. The upshot is that virtually nobody stays there after law school; most students move on to one of the major cities in Texas. Their alumni base is very large and very strong. If you want to stay in Texas, you will have many more options coming from Tech than people on this board will lead you to believe. BTW, good luck with UT!
Wow, Smack...congrats! I'm suprised you passed up UH for Tech too. I'm in a similar situation though - even if I do get accepted to UH, I'm still leaning toward Tech. If all goes as planned, I'll be moving August 1st. Do you have housing lined up yet?
