Of course there is also the upside of years of drunken debauchery if I managed to hit BigLaw with low initial debt. From the few trips I have made to each city I would have to say Dallas has better overall talent than Houston, but maybe I was on the wrong side of town.
So the pros of SMU:
Not murdering my parents
A chance at getting laid over the next three years
Slightly better biglaw job prospects
Half to 1/3 of the overall debt of SMU.
Pretty much get to eat steak every night
Heroine dealers are really close by after I felt I bombed my finals
hmmm... the idea of trying it out at home 1L year and then moving into an apartment if I can't handle living with them doesn't sound too horrible honestly.
