Why would you go to university of Houston without ties?

Only go to regional schools in regions you want to work and live in

and also, just because the fact that I dislike you shouldn't stop me from giving you real advice:

it's really foolish to choose any of these options at those costs

you should wait, or you shouldn't go

I mean, more potential for schadenfreude this way I guess, but I'm not that evil.

with the GI Bill, i would actually be making money to go to tulane(+36k) or UH (+12k), and SMU would be minimal $

nothing out of my pocket personally

it's expending the VA and the school's money

or vacation in law school for 3 years and get paid to do it. i say the opportunity cost of being a paralegal etc. is not worth it.

plus i know i want to be a lawyer

this is not a megathread

law school = vacation?

Regardless, pick either UH or Tulane if you're set on going this year. No point in you paying for SMU.
