As a native Houstonian, I would never ride the Metro buses if at all possible. It's been a few years since I rode them, but it was never a pleasant experience. I do not know if UH has shuttles though. A car is definitely something to consider. The Memorial Park area is very nice, and if you can afford it, that's great.

+1

I think that Houston is so spread out you could potentially miss out on alot the city has to offer without some form of reliable transportation. I've never used the metro and have lived here all of my life... As a reference, my experience has been that Memorial Park is easily around a 10 minute drive from the campus without traffic.

Also, would the commute from around Memorial Park into UH be doable? All my friends are saying I would like that area, but I have no idea how hard of a commute it would be. Input would be appreciated! :)


I grew up in Houston. It can be done without a car, but it would be very difficult. Public transit is not great.

I applied on 1/4/2012, was "under review" on 1/12/2012, and got the e-mail acceptance on 1/27/2012. I hope this helps.

EDIT: The timeline may also depend greatly upon your LSAT/GPA and other factors. Some people (180/4.0) will be an "automatic" admit, while others (145/2.0) will be an "automatic" deny.

Yes that helps. I was just hoping they would review it literally right now and tell me!

I also submitted my residency questionnaire last week and I still say "Out of State"

Has this happened to anyone else? Should I call them?

I would wait a few more days. It will take a few days to mail it there and a few more for them to check the documents and aknowledge receiving it. I'd call if your status checker doesn't update by Thursday or Friday, but that's just me.

I faxed it on 2/2 and an hour later the "waiting on residency questionnaire" went away. It says perm state:TX but residency:out of state. I have lived in Austin my entire life...

Maybe just an email to them? I emailed mine in and recieved a response within an hour saying they received it, then another a few hours later saying residency was confirmed.
