As I was rethinking though, I had another question. UT is definitely my current top choice (just based on location) but I am very limited financially and don't want to take on much debt and it seems like it is a stretch for a full-ride there (or really any of the T14 schools). Is there a school that is more generous with full-ride scholarships that, if I was fortunate enough to get a full-ride there, I could at least negotiate with UT if I did not get a scholarship at UT.
I'm sorry for all my questions but as I think through my plans for attending law school based on your all's suggestions, more questions just keep coming to mind.
If money is a concern, I would blanket the T-14. A full ride at UT is not that unrealistic for you (and serious money is almost guaranteed). With your numbers and an early application I bet some of the T-14 might also bite in a big way and give you a lot of money.
