I actually applied to STCL, too. However, I have not heard anything back. Maybe it's because I applied in mid February?
Anyways, Loyola is more expensive tuition wise, but they tend to give more aid. Yet, STCL offers school-supported repayment to help manage debt. Students tend to come out of STCL with about 90,000 in law school related debt, while Loyola students tend to come out with around 50,000.
Also, what type of programs or areas of law interest you? Loyola has strong a moot court program, which is ranked nationally and well known internationally. If you have interest in international law, go to Loyola.
What region of the country do you want to work in? It may be challenging to land a job outside of New Orleans if you attend Loyola. If you attend STCL, you may have a decent shot at getting jobs across Texas.
Ultimately, these are just a few ideas I thought I would share.
Best of luck.
