I'm from Virginia. How are outsiders received there, and how is the job market?
My experience was pretty positive as an outsider, but the job market in Texas is going to be tough to crack unless you have ties (pre-existing or manufactured) or are on law review with good grades. If you have ties to other markets and have respectable grades, Texas certainly won't hold you back; it may even be a boost, depending on the quality of the local law schools.
Any idea what you want to do or where you want to practice?
