LSAT's a little low even for AA. If I had to guess, I'd say WL because you're in-state.

Your comments make sense to me...I can only hope to have the luck of this guy: http://lawschoolnumbers.com/Junebug/jd

I wrote a Why UT so I'm hoping for a little help...I plan to stay in Virginia/D.C., but UT would be a compelling reason to head back to Texas

I'd shoot SMU an app, if Dallas is of interest you. But do it soon.

I have sent them an application...I've been admitted to W&L and UofR so SMU would not do much for me at this point honestly

Congrats on W&L. Ride it out with SMU; see if you get accepted with cash. If so, depending on how much, you might be able to leverage it for more cash from your other schools you might get into.

SMU would probably give you better employment opportunities than W&L or U of Richmond. in the state of virginia there are just so many better schools than W&L, especially if you count the DC schools as in the area. SMU only competes with UT for the huge dallas market and UT students go to all of the big cities in the state, HOuston, austin, dallas and san antonio. Since you are URM you'd have a chance at money to SMU which I would take in a heartbeat over W&L sticker. Plus Lexington, VA blows goats. I don't like Dallas but I hated lexington. I lived there for a while and it is a horrible horrible place to live. PM if you want more details.

Well my school is stuck out in the middle of nowhere so I understand. I still like W&L over SMU, but I have yet to hear back from SMU so we'll see...
