I know that the schools in Oklahoma are not ranked like SMU and UT, but I am from there originally and I rocked my first semester grades (3 As and 1 A-) with two awards for highest exam.
As a preemptive strike, yes, I concede the law schools in OK are not the greatest. Move on TLS.
Thoughts on my chances?
I have several years work experience, and I graduated from a top 25 undergrad school.
unlikely, most 1L SA spots go to T14 with TX ties, URMs, and top grades at UT/SMU (or HYP undergrad). At my HYS alone, we had 6 different people interview at 5+ biglaw firms in Dallas (many of whom have received multiple offers already). That being said, you'll probably kick butt at OCI next year!
