I think that if you don't go to Duke, the rest of your life is a long time to regret that decision. UT is an incredible school with an impressive faculty and great location, but if Duke called me tomorrow and told me I was in from the waitlist...

I think you can finish the thought. Your heart is in Durham. Embrace it.

oh, come on guys. You don't have to be so melodramatic. Somebody else said, "you'll do better in law school if you're happy." JcW strikes me as the kind of guy who's going to be happy wherever he goes. He really can't go wrong either way.

I'm old enough to have at least a tiny bit of perspective here, and while this is a big decision for all of us, it's not life or death.

Philo, love the tar! We need to put it on shirts! Although... what do we do if not everyone from the Stubbs XX decides to go to UT? Stubbs XIX? Stubbs XVII? Just doesn't have the same ring to it.

Technically the Stubbs XX was TLS invite so TLS is its own cliche.

Sorry for the double post! Just thrilled that the decision is made and can't believe this is really happening. So excited to be a Longhorn!

Will you guys have a car on campus? Since I live too far to drive, I was thinking of selling mine and then buying a new one once I arrive in Austin. However, I'm not so sure how beneficial having a car would be. Thoughts?

Depends on where you live. A car always increases your quality of life though.

Agreed. The best thing about Austin is the close proximity of the hill country and city/downtown scene. They are about 20-30 minutes apart... a tad bit too far to bike.

I live about 8 minutes walk from the school. I might use my car to drive 5-10 miles a week. However, having a car can be invaluable and save you a lot of time (e.g., groceries, hardware store trip, etc.). ATX has a decent bus system, which I use to get downtown to go drinking on a regular basis, but it's nothing I would want to rely on regularly.
