I have no idea how it compares to Duke/UVA, but I have two friends who got Texas offers with varying degrees of ties. One was from Texas and one had an SO in Texas. From what they told me most of the big firms hire from the (non-HYS?) T14 pretty equally, and it's the ties that matter. It's my impression that it's also relatively easy to get 1L summer gigs in Texas. This is a very small sample-size, obviously, but you asked for anecdotes.
