Officially checking in as UT bumped the original offer by a decent amount after i sent in matching request (still far away from actually matching though..). Withdrew from all other schools and deposited made to UT. Whoever is matriculating, I will see you in Austin in 4 months :)

For those who have already sent matching requests - what did the process look like?

Any email confirming receipt of request? Email with decision - or just physical mail?

I sent in the email and didn't get a receipt or anything. Still waiting on the decision.

Just send in an email, attach your offers, and they'll get back to you within a full business day* with a new offer letter attached.

*at least that's how it was for me and a few other people, sans Attax (stay strong, Attax).

I did submit it at about 1PM on Friday, but I know the uni isn't closed for good friday. Hoping for something today or tomorrow! Maybe they're just wondering how to tell me that they want to give me $800k

Don't stop negotiating, seriously. I ended up getting twice that by the end of last cycle with >75th LSAT <25th GPA (Word up to WUSTL for their post-withdrawal full ride offer).

That's inspiring, but also really frustrating haha. I'm really tempted to retake and just sit this cycle out, especially if I don't get any more $.

I am a retake evangelist, but it's almost certainly a great idea. At that LSAT score every extra point is just enormous.

Do you regret coming to UT over WUSTL at their sexy full ride offer at all?

I think about it sometimes, but I was nearly positive that I wanted to be in Texas longterm. WUSTL might have won out otherwise though.

Yeah, I feel the exact same. Poor WUSTL for feeding into an undesirable region lol.

What is ATL talking about? Just cuz Austin is the "Live Music Capital of the World" doesn't mean it's the "Good Music Capital of the World."

And I'm pretty sure that if these law students could make it in a career in music in Austin, they wouldn't be law students in Austin.

That's right, y'all performed at ASW and I thought it was pretty clever and entertaining.

Hey has anybody lived or is going to live at the Volume Apartments on Manor? They're maybe not as close to the law school as Hyde Park, but it doesn't seem like too bad of a walk or bike ride. Their floor plans are attracting me.
