Good to know, thanks guys! I like the whole "in good standing" thing.

That's a tough one. I want to work in Dallas after graduation, and my 0L optimism and naiveté make me think that my education and work experience would allow me to get an acceptable IP job from either school, so I would have happily gone to SMU had that been my only acceptance.
I'm going to UT mainly because of its better employment numbers, but I don't know how much of a premium I would have paid for UT had it come to that. Maybe $50-60k? There's no scientific basis for that number; it's more of the psychological effect that it's much closer to "a car payment for a car I'll never drive" than "a mortgage for a house I'll never live in".

There's a distinction between the "electronic" application and the personal statement/resume/etc.
I was under the impression that all that stuff would also be submitted electronically, as part of the electronic application. (I haven't uploaded anything yet, so maybe it'd be clearer if I explored LSAC?)Do we need to also mail in a paper application with all that stuff in paper or what? Or can everything be done electronically(I have a fee waiver)?

I'm working full time in Dallas, but would still like to enjoy all the social events/etc. offered for law students.

And I can totally relate to you, I've looked at status checkers multiple times for schools I submitted to less than 24 hours ago.

Being that you're non traditional and not k-jd. Do you ever wish you did PT, instead of FT, and worked through it or was it worth it for you to take COA loans out? Also, did you get a decent amount in scholarships and did it factor into your decision?
