Baylor or Houston or SMU

Postby graceful1 » Sun Feb 13, 2011 11:53 am

Suppose you have equal 1L tuition expenses at Baylor, Houston, and SMU, which would you choose and why?

Houston if you want to work in Houston.

SMU if you want to work in Dallas.

Baylor if you're a masochist who enjoys being tortured.


Also, wrong forum.

I heard Houston is a law school on the rise, that their numbers and tuition haven't caught up yet but they will. Told that they are passing SMU and going to Houston will allow you to work anywhere in Texas. Any truth to this at all?

It's a good school but not THAT good. Tuition will rise substantially as well because of impending budget cuts.

Credited, although for someone location neutral I'd go with SMU if the costs were the same since it's a little more prestigous and located in a nice part of Dallas. However, if someone had the background for IP or work experience in Oil and Gas that could tip the scales towards UH.
