I too got in via phone call today and was told I have a scholarship offer in the mail!!! I am also an instate splitter (high LSAT, low GPA). Now I have the hardest decision ever to make between a full ride + living stipend at Texas Tech and $ (prob not much considering my GPA) at UT. I'm already sitting with an overwhelming amount of undergrad debt, so my biggest concern is not screwing myself over upon graduation. Advice?

This is probably against my interest as a fellow instate splitter who recently applied :P but getting biglaw from TT would be extremely difficult. UT would give you a far far greater shot at F&J.

lol good luck! I applied early decision and got held over so don't be too concerned if it takes a while. Yea that is what I was thinking too, just with nothing being guaranteed I don't want to graduate 90K more in debt and then not even have F&J to help pay it off.

+1 You'd have to be one of the top 10 students or so to get biglaw from Tech. Very risky gamble if thats what your set on.

I just got the acceptance call! In state reverse splitter.

The last few weeks has been a wave of waitlists and rejections. First top 20 acceptance.
