I wouldn't be this optimistic. South Texas is a decent T4 school (compared to the other T4s), but it's not going to give you a broad range of options coming out of school. The school pumps out litigators, and there aren't that many litigation jobs. Further, you really do have a limit geographically because every region in Texas has its own T4 school from which it can recruit top students (plus all the students from UT, U of H, SMU, Baylor, and T14 schools in other regions).
For anyone considering South Texas, keep in mind that the bottom half of the class probably is forced into a job they don't enjoy and doesn't pay well. Most importantly, do NOT pay for a T4 school with debt. If someone isn't helping you pay or you don't have at least 50 % scholarships, my advice is to choose another career path. Sorry to be gloomy but its better for incoming students to hear it before they start than when they finish.
I would most emphatically have to agree with the above statements. Consider very, very carefully where you attend law school especially if you will be taking on a large debt load. TTTT schools generally have a hellish curve and thus even if you rode in on a scholarship you may find it taken away from you should you not make the cut. I, myself, have been accepted at several schools and most have offered a scholarship, but the amounts and the stipulations vary widely. For example, on school offered me 20K per year as long as I stayed in the top 50% of the class. That offer seems pretty reasonable, but it's also at a school that will bind me to its city for a few years - provided I can even find a job. Bear in mind, the legal market is heavily saturated and you really, really must be 100% committed and deadset on practicing law if you want to go to law school, but I digress. Anyway, I am currently waiting on a small handful of schools to get back to me with their offers, but suffice it to say the school that gets the right blend of scholly money, terms, and location will be where I attend. In other words, if a school does not make it fiscally "do-able" for me, then I will really have to reevaluate attending there - especially since I am first and foremost seeking a DA position.
If you are thinking of going into six figures of debt to attend a regional school, consider going forward very carefully. Even with a scholarship offer, you may find yourself stuck cross-subsidizing if you lose it.
Finally, I would suggest that anyone considering a TTT/TTTT school be mentally prepared to make the town in which that school lies your home for quite some time. It's a pretty rare student, if any, that are going to transport that degree to, say, NYC, DC, etc.
FWIW - I applied to STCL and am awaiting their decision on admission, but I am from H-Town and know an alum in government service, but that may not amount to much.
