I only applied to:
Tulane - accepted
UH - denied
stcl - accepted ($10,000+)
Living for free is just too tempting right now (my family has a place I can live). For everyone seeking a positive note... heres to enjoying much better facilities and graduating in the top 5%.
I'm 95% sure I'll be at STCL this fall. Just wanting to make sure nothing crazy happens with my job in the next few months or anything, and I'd like to see how the financial aid works out.
As for getting rejected from UH and getting used to the idea of STCL, after one day of thinking about it I don't feel so horrible about it. STCL is a well respected law school in a great location. Really what we need from law school (unless we are seriously devoted to slaving away at a big law firm in a highrise building) is the education and tools to pass the bar exam and be successful in a law career, of which there are many variations.
STCL offers this.
Law schools and the legal profession at large tend to be elitist, and I got caught up in this a little bit during the application process. I'm over it now. I'm excited about South Texas.
