I did something silly today. I sent in my other scholarship offers to UT to see if they would offer me anything... I haven't even received my welcome packet in the mail. :roll:

What has seemed to be the best tactic of the following for negotiating with UT:

*About 2/3 of the amount UT gave from T10
*About 8/9 of the amount UT gave from T14
*Slightly better offer from UCLA/USC/Vandy

Help would be appreciated!

Who gave you $15k? UT or another school (if UT was this initial or after you sent in the other offers)?

Was going to ASW until I realized it wasn't actually on a weekend...anyone else doing the mini version on the 5th? Also, if anyone wants recommendations on good restaurants and stuff in Austin besides 6th Street, pm me and I can hook you up.

TLSing from ASW: acceptable? Unacceptable? Either way, I'm doing it!

WL earlier today.

Haven't read this thread; what is the consensus on attending UT with zero Texas ties and a desire to practice in CA?

bad idea unless you have CA ties, and even then would be better off at USC/UCLA.

Nah, just watching March Madness before heading over to the Women in Law thing (assuming the alarm goes off). Y'all on the segway tour?

I really want to go to UT but it's so discouraging to hear that it's not worth it without ties. I have no ties there but really want go and now I'm thinking of not.

Note that we said it's a bad idea if you have a desire to practice in CALIFORNIA! AFAIK (any actual law students reading please correct me if I am wrong), if you want to work in TX, going to UT is a tie, esp if you are from a state w/out a big home legal market.
