I did also visit Baylor last week. No disrespect to them -- they have a great trial advocacy program, but I do think there is a significant difference between schools. IMHO it's worth it to go to somewhere like UT. UT will open doors in Texas AND outside.
I did speak to a residency officer. I may have missed some key information here. The officer had just been explained my situation (I would work part time while in school and my wife will definitely be working in Texas), so for me, second year in state would be simple. For others, I guess check the rules.
