Sorry guys, I'm a bit under the weather and didn't check the boards last night.
Ok so the upcoming ASW...
have messaged me about doing something - it looks like the best time would be Thursday or Friday midday/eve - and it looks like Friday midday would be the best of those. What time do you guys finish ASW stuff? I'm thinking Cooter Brown's if we do it early or Superior Grill if we do it later.What do you guys think?
Anyone else that wants to meet up PM me.
Good point... I don't necessarily 'care' about biglaw... mid-sized is fine with me. And, I think for mid-sized placement in Dallas, SMU is probably my best bet, but alas, I have not heard from them yet (bites nails).
Does anyone know the Texas bar passage rate for 1st time test takers out of Tulane?
Ok. Texas placement.
Tulane places as well as UH in Houston BIGLAW. There are fewer Houston small firms that interview at Tulane, but this is a purely a convenience issue. Your Tulane degree/GPA will get the same respect from these firms, you just have to do the legwork.
Dallas is almost identical (replacing UH with SMU) - except Haynes and Boone will go ~5% deeper into SMUs class.
Midlaw is virtually nonexistent in both Dallas and Houston. There are some medium sized firms but most pay BIGMARK and have similar hiring requirements.
Tulane's Texas Bar passage is similar to SMU and UH (I think low-mid 90%s, but I'm just going on memory)
If you know you want to work in Houston and get UH (especially if its cheaper than Tulane), UH is probably the school for you.
If you know you want to work in Dallas and get SMU (especially if its cheaper than Tulane), SMU is probably the school for you.
As for me, SMU was going to be cheaper and I want to get back to Dallas, but I couldn't say no to Tulane. For the record, I didn't like my SMU visit or the vibe I received from every one of their representatives.
