Can you speak to how the job search is going? Also, the makeup of the class as far as age, WE, etc. I'll be 28 when I start and have been out of school since '06.
A healthy mix. Ive been out of school for a few years (though not quite as many as you), and there are certainly plenty of people who are older than me. The young people tend to hang out with each other and the older people kinda do the same.
Very few african americans. Hispanic is the largest URM group.
Maybe this is the case for all law schools, but I was genuinely surprised by how wealthy people seem. A lot of really nice cars in the student garage.
I can't speak to firms outside of Texas, but if you want big law in TX, UT is just about as good as it gets. It seems as though every partner I've met went to UT. Firms seem receptive to my apps so far (full disclosure, I'm in the top 5-10%).
