WHY TEXAS?

Texas word cloudLocation: Texas is the place to study law if you're interested in engaging the biggest challenges we're facing as a nation. Texas is the second largest state in the United States by both land area and population. Given our size and central position in the country, our complex political landscape, our urban ​and rural character, our place as a border state, and our fast growth, there is no problem that can't be solved by the country, if we can solve it in Texas.

Quality of Life: Choosing a law school means that you’re choosing your home for the next few years, and you won’t find a better place to learn and live than the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Designated as one of America’s “Most Livable Communities,” Fort Worth prides itself on being a city of cowboys, culture, commerce, and community. The Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex offers welcoming neighborhoods, a low cost of living (14% below the national average), and a strong economy.

Attractions: In Fort Worth and across the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, you’ll have access to all the museums, restaurants, entertainment, outdoor activities, and professional sports teams you would expect in the fourth largest metropolitan area in the nation. From the world-famous Stockyards to the world-class Bass Performance Hall, and from the hip music scene that make it “Funky Town” to museums that hosted two of the top ten art exhibits in the United States in 2019 (according to the Wall Street Journal), there’s nothing you can’t find in Fort Worth.

Why Texas A&M?

Affordability: As a public institution, we strive to deliver a world-class legal education while keeping tuition low for both Texas residents and non-residents alike. You can minimize your debt load thanks to our low tuition and generous tuition waivers. All out of state applicants are automatically considered for our non-resident tuition waiver of $15,000 in addition to other merit scholarships. 

National Reciprocity: Texas is now offering the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE) which allows graduates to transfer scores to other jurisdictions. The UBE is currently offered in 38 states, making your law license easy to transfer between states. In 2020, our students successfully took the bar exam in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Utah, and Virginia. 

Aggie Network: Texas A&M University is proud to have produced over 500,000 former students who are famously loyal to the University and to one another. Our former students can be found all over the nation and across the globe. Explore the strength of the Aggie Network.

open quote iconI am proud to have attended Texas A&M School of Law because I find that work is more meaningful when you know you are a part of setting the standard at a rising institution. I also hope that my success as a first generation Latinx lawyer allows other aspiring law students from a similar background to know that there is space for them at Texas A&M University School of Law and in the legal field at large.close quote icon

open quote iconBeing an out of state student, I knew getting an Aggie Ring was a big deal, but it wasn’t until I put mine on that I realized just how much it meant to me! The past two years, while incredibly rewarding, have also been the most challenging of my life thus far. My Aggie Ring represents the hard work, resilience, and my love for all that Texas A&M Law School has given me during my time here.close quote icon

open quote iconLooking back, leaving California was the best decision I could have made to eventually get back home. Texas A&M Law School, as an entity, is a national force to be reckoned with. The incredible growth of the law school in recent years has attracted the most intelligent and diverse professors and peers. Even though I went to law school in Texas, I received a nationally significant education. It is this foundation from Texas A&M that will continue to benefit me back home in California.close quote icon
