Browsing through recent UH decisions and noticed your profile. I'm guessing you're the same LonghornGal on TLS deciding between UH and a Tech full-ride? UH in a landslide as far as career prospects go. Congrats on Tulane. I was admitted there as well. I'm still waiting on my UH decision (and will continue living on LSN/TLS/LSD until I get it :). UH is still my first choice, but I find Tulane also attractive. Why the pass? Are your concerns purely financial?

on making your decision! It must be such a relief to be out of the waiting game and into the planning stages. Best of luck to you!

Hey! I noticed that you're going to Tech too. Congrats and hopefully I'll see you here. I go to undergrad here so let me know if you have any questions about where to live or anything like that. Also, did you go to the scholarship group thing last friday? Well, congrats and good luck! Y dnde estudiaste en Argentina?

Well for what it's worth, I know people who live in both complexes, and I've only heard good things about each of them, so you should be fine no matter what you decide.

I am visiting Lubbock in a couple of weeks to check out the school and participate in some mock-classroom type deal. Anyways, I was wondering what your opinion of the city itself was? TxTech is one of my two choices for next year.

  • Tech over T1???

I'm in a similar situation-- and I have mixed emotions toward your decision. First- way to be practical-- free/cheap is certainly a smart choice. But, St Mary's used to be a T3 (as recent as 2003)... they have since fallen to T4. If Tech falls to 4 in the future, will you regret your decision?

I think I may very well end up at Texas Tech, but I've yet to visit. Can you tell me a little more about Lubbock? Is it really as bad as people say? Do you think Tech grads are locked into practicing in Texas?
