Choosing the Right Law School / Decided!
« on: April 19, 2006, 11:10:29 AM »
I finally have made a decision  ;D

I know everyone cares.


It's a little more of a risk:  could potentially lose my scholarship, more difficult time coming back to texas if I decide I want to do that, further away from home... but I would regret not going to the school that I have been "wanting" to go to from the very beginning.  UT may have been the "smart" choice, but I will have no regrets if I go to UCLA.

So there it is- Go Bruins!  (too bad I didn't realize this before I sent in my deposit  :-\ o well).

Financial Aid / UT Cost of Attendance Concerns
« on: April 12, 2006, 08:40:11 AM »
Does anyone else think that the UT living expense figures seem too low?  I think the total living expense budget was around $1300/month; seems too low for living in a city.
