I had planned on applying ED to UVA...waiting the 15 days to find out, and if not picked up applying to UT Austin ED. Now it seems like I will most likely only get one shot at EDing to a school. Assuming I score well enough on the LSAT...
Does UVA give me a better shot at Texas big law compared to UT Austin? (Texas would be my number one destination, close enough to home but far enough away that the in-laws still have to call. Not to mention the cost of living...)
I'm a AA male, 3 years TIS, family of four, 100% GI Bill eligible.
The only difference in financials would be that UT would pay a 10k annual housing stipend. (Assuming neither school offers me a scholarship that I can negotiate them to class for housing.)
Are your preferences Texas Big Law>any Big Law> any legal job in texas> any legal job or are they
Texas Big Law>any legal job in texas>any big law>any legal job?
ED UVA or UT accordingly (LSAT dependent). Either school can get you Texas big law if you do well, it's what start to happens if you're around median where the difference is.
