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/$$$.
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.
Seriously. These are not regional schools. These are terrible schools. Every time I go to a function at a big firm, if there's 20 lawyers in the room, 10 will be from UT, 10 will be from the T14. If there are 21 lawyers in the room, there may be a grad from the University of Houston or SMU but you can see the sadness in their eyes because that they had to kill everyone else in their graduating class with a plastic spork to get that position.
Guess where Texas Wesleyan and OK City are on that food chain?
