For the most part ASD was great. They highlighted their three flagship programs: IP; Health Law; and Environmental, Energy, and Natural Resources. The Blakely Advocacy Institute was also given considerable attention, and seems to be a great experience to be a part of.
I thought the mock class was great. It was fun, thought provoking, and extremely entertaining to see the prof lay into the gunners - yes there was one or two gunners. Most of the other admitted students, current students, and faculty seemed really cool and friendly.
Scholarship info is supposed to be determined in another week or so Scott Palmer says, however he didn't directly say when they would start sending that info out. Financial Aid is supposed to be rolling out between April and May, so they emphasized get all your FASFA stuff turned in ASAP as it comes out on a rolling basis, first come first served.
The tour was also great. Two current students lead my group on what was supposed to be a set tour, but they definitely made time to add in a few extra stops, which was nice.
The atmosphere was probably the best part. Seemed very welcoming and collegial. There other huge selling point was the city of Houston. Huge legal market, arguably the energy capital of the world, also one of the best medical centers in the world. It places incredibly well in Houston too; the top students in a class place as well as or better than T10 schools. Although of course, T10 schools have the flexibility to place well in many different parts of the country.
While i do think they were embellishing some points, i don't think it went too far.
