GW ($$$) vs. UT

Postby JTMan » Thu Feb 10, 2011 4:09 pm

What would you do choosing an OOS law school looking to specialize in Energy/Environmental Law and be employed by a BigLaw firm....GW with ($$$) or UT (no money)?

Keep in mind my roots are in California so I have NO idea where I want to end up one day.

I have heard that Texas has a huge energy market. If that's the kind of work you want to do UT would likely give you a better chance than GW.

What kind of $$$ we talking? $105,000? Obviously, Texas might be more in line with getting into environmental practice representing large companies or what not but a hefty scholarship will give you more options to to the tree hugger stuff too.

And yea, $105,000 which is REALLY attractive.

Well I would never advise someone to turn away that much money to go somewhere not HYS for sticker but UT would give you the best career options.
