Rough numbers for UT.
Agreed, that is extremely low for the school that claims to dominate the Texas market. Maybe a substantial number of UT candidates declined offers? My thought is 29 in Houston? Seems like a lot for a smaller K&E office.
I wouldn't read too much into this as a reflection of UT to be honest. It's rather well known that K&E Houston has an aggressive bro-y culture that turns away many people. I knew several top UT students with offers from K&E who purposefully went elsewhere, even with the extra summer signing bonus incentives they give to people nowadays.
So this might be self selection by the qualified UT students or self selection by K&E for most bro-y kids (or UT just not doing well, but frankly I doubt that)
Also yeah *29* summers for a <100 person office sounds crazy to me. Bravo if they 100% offer everyone and are actually looking for that much growth (but that many summers and not more laterals?). If that turns into a competitive summer class with deep cuts though, I wouldn't be surprised.
