where do you all suggest to park for ASD? parking garages are expensive for 5 hours.


When I visited a while ago I think it was $8 all day at the San jacinto garage. It's close to the school if you don't mind a 5 minute walk.

Edit: I looked it up it's $15 for 5 hours. Idk how I got $8, but I'm pretty sure that's all I paid.


I was about to say, it's not $8! lol (go you for getting cheap-ish parking)

I think you parked at the Health Center garage (HCG): https://parking.utexas.edu/parking/gara ... rates.html which is a 1.1 mile or so walk

If you can find a spot along Dean Keeton (runs right along the front of the law school) then it's $1 per hour, max 5 hours (I think). The issue is that it's usually pretty full after 9am and until 4pm or so and you'll have to hope you catch an open spot.

How's the parking in the residential areas nearby?

It's all going to be paid parking unless you get away from the entire UT campus, and even then it's pretty full up. The other week I had to park a friend's car and I couldn't find a spot closer than a half mile from the edge of campus. YMMV, of course.

When I used to drive to campus I would park on one of the residential streets next to Red River (by the HEB) and then take the Red River shuttle in to campus.

Eta: It was free and I never had a problem

Finally have all of my offers. When do you guys think would be the best time to submit the reconsideration form? Now, after ASD II, or wait until after the 1st seat deposit to see if money frees up?

if you wait until after the seat deposit then don't you lose some leverage? at that point, you are already committed to going (assuming you are not willing to pull out at that point)

I parked at the LBJ library(which is somewhat risky) but if you wanted too you could park near schoolhouse(a bar) and it's like a 10 minute walk for free.

Has anyone sent in an email asking for a seat deposit extension and been granted one? I did a few days ago but haven't heard anything back from them.

I figured since the seat deposit is due a week before the other school I'm interested in it would give me some time to see if Texas ups their offer. If they don't I'd just lose $200. It's bit risky though.

I think I'll just submit it on Monday and hope that they get back to me before next Friday.

I read in last year's thread that the admissions office denied extending the deadline to students who were admitted before March.

Thanks for the parking advice! I know I'm going to be spending like $20ish in parking later that day and the next so I'd rather not rack up the costs.

Just got an email saying they will grant me the week extension that I asked for. Hopefully that will be useful information to some of you!

Hey, if any of you were UT undergrads and have your scholarship info but not your FAN yet, email the office and see what's up. Apparently I've been missing out on grant money because I had a bar left over from my undergrad that I didn't know about, which is, well... frustrating to say the least because state grants are first come, first serve and I should have been in the pool for money weeks ago. See y'all at ASD, I'm gonna go cartwheel into the sun.

Unrelated, but this reminded me of it, if you took time off before you applied to law school, you still have to send your transcript to admissions - was a huge pain 1L year getting that situated.

Wait, like... separately from the LSAC? Because I definitely took time off but I can't imagine they would have admitted me without my transcript.

Hahaaa, I'm glad the UT tradition of not telling you about requirements until you're getting screwed for not completing them lives on at the law school, too. Hook 'em!

I remember reading that requirement in the acceptance letter that they sent, but it's been while. I believe they did say that if UT was your degree granting institution then you don't need to send your official one in, but check on that instead of just taking my word on it.
