And if you don't know, then you shouldn't make law school that adventure. Move around a bit before you decide to go. There are plenty of 30k-40k jobs for recent grads in many cities. Slum it if you need to. Then you'll have a better idea of goals- geographic and otherwise.
I agree. Move to Houston or whatever for a year and retake.
If you go the UT then the only realistic markets are Houston and Dallas, especially for big law. San Antonio doesn't really have a legal market and I would proceed as if Austin doesn't either. Also am I reading between the lines here that you don't drive? If so I'd probably avoid the state of Texas altogether. You could make it work without driving but that's an uphill battle IMO.
I do drive. But I really hate traffic. And while St. Louis is a fairly large metro area, its traffic obviously doesn't compare to Houston/Dallas or other bigger cities, and if I'm getting pissed at my commutes as of right now....you get the picture haha.
Big fan of taking trains. Studied in Paris for a semester and loved their metro system. I'd like the ability to be able to walk a few blocks and just jump on a train.
