I would HIGHLY advise against that. Seriously, you might get hurt or your property damaged if you run into someone stupid enough. We respect diversity and differing opinions, so long as you don't wear an OU shirt. I wouldn't wear a Longhorn shirt in Norman, and I hope you would have the same respect and common sense lol.

However I am curious as to how people would react, since I have never seen someone wear an OU shirt here in Austin.

Yeah, now that I think about it I haven't seen too many UT shirts in Norman... Being a UT fan doesn't mother me, I just get so sick of the whole Texas attitude. I will for sure have to come down and just get a feel of the place, I may have rooted for Bama, I may even root for OSU against Texas, but I cannot deny the beauty of Texas girls.

Haha the last thing is something we can both agree on. See, there is common ground even among the most intense rivals.

If anyone is interested let me know. I'm currently searching for the best hotel at the best price and closest to the law school. I can send everyone the information and hopefully meet some TLS members in the process :D


This is a good idea. I definitely won't know anyone at the ASW.

Does anyone know what the schedule is going to be like? I don't see anything about it on Freshlaw. And this may be a dumb question, but do people generally fly into Austin or use the San Antonio airport? (I've been to SA once but never to Austin.)

a) Texas girls are an American treasure. Be good to them.

b) Do Not Ever wear OU paraphernalia anywhere within the 512 area code.

Austin for sure. Besides that I wish I could recommend a hotel, but everywhere I know requires a car to drive to campus.

To be fair, your state is inferior.

I'm not a big fan of the state of Oklahoma (outside of Norman and Tulsa), but Austin is the only city in the entire state of Texas I would even CONSIDER living in.

How does UT do its different notifications (Accepted / WL / Rejected)? Snail mail for everything?

Dallas isn't that bad, less culture, but it's not offensive. I'd work in Houston for BigLaw $ if that was my only career option.

I'd live anywhere in TX before Oklahoma, if only for the lack of income tax.

We had a couple Sooner alumni wearing their shirts on campus before the Longhorn/Sooner game last semester. They are still alive as far as I know.

New AT&T hotel on campus?? The close hotels (like the two DoubleTrees) have free buses to campus. We have a great bus system!! :)

I can't believe I've missed out on all of this OU/ Texas talk! I'm a Sooner but Texas is definitely my top choice. Hands down.

And I've definitely worn my OU shirt in Austin before and I was left alone. PLUS I parked my car overnight in west campus with a big OU decal on my car and it was not keyed! So I gotta give those UT people some points.

But it's just a matter of principle. I will always be a Sooner :). But UT, please let me in!!!

Another Sooner UT Law Applicant here. Sooner Born, Sooner Bred, When I die I'll be Sooner Dead.I love the Sooners and have obligingly rooted against the Longhorns my entire life (except in that beautiful national championship game against USC), but if I got into UT I would have to root for the Longhorns (that's my school, yo), sorry fellow Oklahomans.

Haha yup! It probably helped that it wasn't during football season. I imagine the closer it gets to OU/Texas weekend though the more likely someone would've done something to it.

P.S. I will never get used to hearing it called "Texas/OU" instead of "OU/Texas". Sometimes it's the small things in life...

Wow, its been a busy day at work and I've missed a lot of the convo. Here is my 2 cents for what its worth.

OU Shirt debate: Don't wear it. No people won't mess with you because that's not how the majority of UT students are. You will just have people think you're an immature idiot for trying to stir up stuff by wearing a shirt. Just go to school.

Airport: Austin Int'l is a great airport although a bit removed from the city. Beats the hell out of DFW though.

Hotel: The only one I can really think of is the AT&T hotel on campus. I would just call the law school though, they are more likely to give helpful information on which hotels can reach campus.

For my other UT Alumni and future UT law students, are you attending the UT@UT event in addition to the ASD or just one or the other? The UT@UT thing slightly confuses me but I honestly haven't had that much time to look into it.

Just for the record, the AT&T Center is very nice. It's on the complete opposite side of campus to the law school, but it is damn nice, and the walk isn't that bad.

ATT Executive Center is nice, but very expensive. Also I am going to go to UT@UT, but not sure about the regular ASD. I'm sure it would be the same information except with more Longhorn culture indoctrination.

Is ASW seriously on the 25th? I'm going to have to piss the Ty Murray Invitational if it is :x ! And my brother was coming to visit and everything.

But anyways, I plan on driving to Austin. Since this is the case, I'm wondering how difficult parking is around campus. Should I still try and find a place that's close enough to walk or will I not have a problem driving around if I don't know the area at all?
