It's very highly regarded in Texas, particularly in terms of its preparation at the practice of law.

After UT, I think Baylor and SMU are 2 and 3 (or 3 and 2) in terms of reputation.

I think it goes UT, SMU then U of H but that's just me... I haven't seen a Baylor Lawyer in my law experience (3 years). But, it could be because I don't deal with litigation issues. Most are from UT, U of H, and even a lot of (surprising) lawyers from St. Mary's. But, the St. Mary's ones are older.

I see TX as:

1. UT
2. U of H, SMU, Baylor (all roughly tied)
3. Tech
4. South Texas
5. St. Mary's, Texas Wesleyan
6. Texas Southern

+2 Agreed. As I understand it....U of H and SMU naturally have an edge when it come to creating big law opportunities in those markets. Baylor grads have a unique reputation...respect...as being the most prepared at graduation.

Was your letter sent on 1/21? I'm trying to figure out if all those sent on that date are rejections/acceptances/both...



My acceptance letter is dated Jan. 14 but it wasn't postmarked until Jan. 18

Dang. I hope all the letters sent out on 1/21 aren't rejections. I'm not heading to Baylor but... ego. :)

First Acceptance so far!!

I applied 1/4 for the Fall program, was admitted 1/24. Yesterday they sent me a 21/year scholarship offer, and today asked me to consider starting in May.

Problem is I know nothing about Texas or the Waco area...

Dallas and UofH have advantages being in huge legal markets and UT is what it is. However Baylor alumni have a weird cabal like pull wherever they work and the network is quite strong.
