TAMLSTW will be an upward trender for sure... It will be interesting to see to what extent. TT in how many years? Doubt they will be peers with UHLC/SMU/Baylor any time soon.

“The synergy of this strategic partnership is extraordinary,” said Kenneth H. Jones, Jr., chairman of Texas Wesleyan’s Board of Trustees. “Texas A&M stands to benefit from an already established, ABA-accredited law school. Fort Worth and the metroplex would lay claim to an institution poised for first-tier status. And Texas Wesleyan would gain new academic programs that drive our vision of preparing motivated students for graduate school.”

Yeah perhaps.

The A&M name is strong. The TWU name is not, a shame they are leaving it on there. It must have been a part of the deal.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out over the next few years because A&M grads tend to be a tad fanatical when it comes to the whole Aggie network thing. If they could rename it Texas A&M Law School in Fort Worth or anything that drops the TW name, it could really make a move.

It can't possibly be any worse than it already is.

25 million upfront and 2 million for the next 40 years to lease the buildings. My guess is TWU will eventually be dropped from the name.
