Good find. Searching Google and UT's website only turned up this page:

http://www.utexas.edu/law/admissions/aba/

which is where I expected it to be posted, like the previous years had been.

"UT law employment statistics" took me there. Not sure how long it has been up though, I searched a few days ago and couldn't find it.

The number of un/underemployed is still a bit disconcerting to me. Maybe the 2-10 category as well, but that might be explained away somewhat (for example, going to work at your family's firm or whatever). Nice to see clerkships+big law have a solid jump up.

Financial aid awards are up on the WIO site, FYI. Didn't get my email yet, but everything's there if you were waiting.

Is it supposed to be updated for everyone already?

I haven't received an email, and I've been checking the "Fall 2014 Financial Aid" link under MyStatus. Just looked at the WIO page and I'm not seeing anything there, either.

Hmm. Maybe I'm special. They said on Facebook that we'll get it tonight, either way.

If I'm reading my info correctly, I didn't get anything in the form of a grant.

My "expected family contribution" is $600, haha.

No aid either. For people who have already gotten scholarships, did they send you a separate email indicating your award?

When I tried to check on WIO, it said my info has been placed on hold or something.

Same thing just happened to me - CASH says that "additional information is required", but it doesn't say what, and I didn't get a related email. I called the financial aid office for UT, and they told me to call the law school finaid office. I did that, and evidently there's something in my file that says I'm an undergraduate sophomore. I think it's because I did my freshman year of undergrad at UT Austin, but that was back when Reagan was president!

They're going to investigate and email me back; hoping this doesn't turn into too big of a red-ass.

I'm still having nothing on my CASH page. I'm wondering if they're not expecting me to graduate and so are processing it as a future undergrad (lol).

I got the email to check my FAN yesterday about an hour after they gave me a scholarship offer (finally!). So, my FAN has two grants in it. Is that the same as need based aid? And does it repeat for 2L and 3L? Sorry if it's obvious :?

typically they don't auto repeat, you have to reapply for need based every year (and yes, I believe the grants are your need based).

No problem, that's at least how it works for the UG. I'd imagine that it would be similar for the LS since it is need based.

Per the facebook group:

Good news: Financial Aid awards should be emailed this evening. Please remember that your aid package can include grants and loans. Both Texas residents and nonresidents are eligible for grant aid. Please let us know if you do not receive your E-Fan (Electronic Financial Aid Notification)...but please give it until Friday before contacting us about missing E-Fans.

Any thoughts on "previously reported resources" for Fall 2014/Spring 2015? I have "reported scholarships" and "tuition assistance" listed under that heading with dollar amounts, but I have not reported any scholarships and have not received notification from them about receiving anything.
