Then you probably shouldn't go to a local law school in Oklahoma unless you have some good connections with people in the Texas legal market to where you can leave and come back and have a good shot at a job.

According to LSN, OCU is $5500 more per year, so that would knock out a chunk of the scholarship difference. I know nothing about TWL, but have always liked OCU and their staff. However, if you are in Texas already, might be worth asking TWL to match OCU's scholarship.

Of course, the answer on this site will be for you to choose neither. Instead, retake and get into a better school.

Good luck!

Do you want to be able to find a legal job after graduation?

You do? Then retake and reapply. What are your current numbers?

I know her.

Just curious, what would she have to do with this decision? Is she now at OCU?

You would do better to lock yourself in a cage with a rabid honey badger than go to either of those schools.

If you want to work in Oklahoma, then I'm wondering why Tulsa wasn't considered.

Texas has many better options outside Texas Wesleyan; I'm not sure why they were all ignored...

Both schools have poor job placement and I would not advise going to either one, especially at those prices.

This. I've never even heard of Oklahoma City University Law.

And there's like 10 schools in Texas, pretty much all of them are better than Texas Wesleyan.

Before someone tries to tell me they are regionally respected - that's great, but matters not a bit of it can't get you a job. You want to be in Texas? At least get in the SMU/Baylor range, or maybe Texas Tech dependent on your career goals.

I know a guy that went to a TexWes open house a couple of years ago. The school was claiming that the salary range for the top 10 of the most recent class was 65K - 105K. :shock:

Employers from Fort Worth would rather come to Dallas (SMU) or go all the way to Lubbock (Tech) than go to Wesleyan for potential employees. That's how awful Wesleyan is.

If really a real person don't go. The fact that theses schools suck nationally really doesn't mean anything. The problem is that these schools are literally the very worst schools in a five state region. I'm not saying don't go cuz you would be the butt of a lot of jokes-- you would, but this may/may not bother you--, I'm saying don't go because you would be paying over 100k to literally be last in line for employment. Your odds for success are horrible. Just retake and get into at least Tech w/$$$.

100% this.

Some schools, despite being poorly ranked, do pretty well for the region they are in and are somewhat solid choices, depending on the finances involved. For an example, see Texas Tech.

Neither of the schools here fall into that category. They are simply terrible, terrible schools.
