No, but a piece of advice. Don't take it personally when people hate you because of your undergrad.

So you're saying they might have a problem with my burnt-orange car? :|

I'm saying you're taking your life in your own hands if you drive a burnt-orange car with Texas plates around Norman. :D

I applied to OU pretty late and am hoping they still have a spot for me (and a little money)...

I was just kidding about the burnt orange car, but are they (OU students/fans) really that bitter? Aside from a little trash-talking around game-time, there's very little real animosity towards OU grads/fans in Austin. Thanks for the heads-up ND.

It's the same type of thing with KU and Mizzou. Everybody talks trash when the teams are playing, but in reality everybody seems to have family and/or friends across the border.

Glad you're kidding. For the most part, OU fans don't truly hate anyone from UT. But there's less to do in Norman than in Austin, so OU fans have more time to focus on their Texas hatred. I could seriously see a couple of drunken undergrads doing some damage to a burnt orange car with anything UT-related on it.

I got the scholarship offer in a separate letter that came a few days later. Their administrative staff is pretty approachable, try calling them to find out if there's an offer on the way. Congrats and good luck!

I went to undergrad at UT, and am now here at OU Law. It's not so bad, I wear my burnt-orange around the law school and its fine. I don't know if I would walk around main campus and talk trash though, that's a different story.

All in all the staff here is awesome and it's a friendly environment too.

I'm in!

Hoping for some scholarship money.

Anyone check out the virtual tour online? I haven't ever seen the l.s. in person but--wow--it looks great!. I especially like that reading room with all the hardwood.

Congrats! I was just up there a few weeks ago and the library is better in person than in the pictures. A bit smaller than I was expecting, but awesome nonetheless.

Gotta see it. I decided to visit in a couple of weeks.

Looks like I'm headed to OU in the fall--any advice on where to live?

Also--when did you hear about the summer program?

Congrats, and welcome to TLS. Though I'm not attending the summer program, I learned about it during a campus visit. Dean Richter offered it after learning I was considering Baylor's summer start. I can't quite tell if it's a conditional-acceptance program, for those trying to figure out whether law school is for them, or anyone in between. I wasn't interested, so I didn't inquire...

I'll be attending OU in the fall. I told the grandparents when I visited last week so I can't look back now. Anyone attending this fall moving from out of state? If so - when do you plan to move? I'm trying to figure out when to quit my job/move my stuff/say goodbye to the bf/plan a trip home before school starts.

I'm not sure about advice on where to live (I haven't lived in Norman since I was 3) but I think I'll be living with my sister in a house near campus or maybe at the Cottages (but probably wouldn't recommend this for a law student because its going to be overrun by UGs).

Makes sense, my sister lives on the north side of OKC, but I've only been to OK to visit her at OSU and this past winter, so I'm one of those random out-of-staters (coming from school in SC). The recruiter mentioned post oak and avalon, but I'm thinking something unfurnished...

I think I'm heading out to OKC right after graduation...what about y'all?

There's a very good chance I will be joining you folks at OU. Just mailed the deposit. I'm from Ohio. Heading down to check out the school in two weeks.

I currently work in Los Angeles so I'm going to try to earn some money through at least part of the summer. I'll probably make my first trip mid to late july to haul my stuff over but then I'll go home for a couple of weeks and return in mid August. I think thats the plan.
But I have a cat and I can't take him home and I can't leave him in OK by himself for a couple of weeks so I might have to reassess this plan.

I'll watch your cat for 50 bucks a week.

Any potential roommates?

It's rediculously cheap when you split it between 2-3 people.

Those look sweet. If I didn't already have roommates I'd be in!
