Can't you just look up the email they sent you with your username and password?


my laptop removes the emails from the server when it downloads them. the email is only on the laptop, which is in Austin, TX, not in San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua.



Maybe you can contact a friend and get them to look for you?

Hey, just call the school and tell them what's up. They will likely verify it's you by your SSN and then just tell you over the phone. Worst they can say is no.

I am that excited. Just trying to temper it. Right now I've got it narrowed down to 2. UT or SMU. The decision will be made by the scholarship committee at SMU so I'm not gonna act too pumped until I've heard from them. :)

I'm kind of in the same boat. I was really hoping that we'd find out scholly info today so I could end this silly waiting game. Unless SMU just throws gobs of money at me I'll probably be in Austin.

Forgot to add, I'm complete 10/27. I think they are just doing 165+ and people with high GPAs for lower LSATs, then they'll hit our apps this afternoon :D

I'm 165/3.62, Complete 9/9, now stuck at complete 1/28.
I always knew I was an impatient person, but this is taking me to a whole new level.

Should I take it as a bad sign that my status hasn't changed yet from "App Complete - 1/28/11"?? Stats are 166, 3.6 - submitted early Nov.

Well hey, at least you've had movement on your status! We haven't changed at all :cry: I definitely don't think you have anything to worry about.

Has anyone seen "The Social Network"? Remember in the end when Mark Zuckerberg just kept on hitting refresh on his computer to see if there were any changes on the fb page? <----totally spamming f5 on status checker page right now.

I'm with you, so I hope not.
In my why SMU, I wrote about how I want to work in TX, but don't think I have the numbers for UT, and Baylor sounds too hard. Do you think that was a mistake? At the time I just wanted to be honest and come across as genuine, but now I'm second guessing myself.

Good luck to everyone still waiting! Here is what I'm thinking though...

The committee is obviously doing this in waves.

1. Last Wed. they rejected the people well below their index threshold
2. On Thurs. they held people that were borderline
3. Fri. they "made a decision" (i.e. status date changes) on the presumptive admits
4. This morning they released those initial decisions.
5. They are currently reviewing people in the middle.

If your date hasn't changed, it just means that they have yet to even look at your file. When it changes, it means that they have made a decision and entered it into the system....they then release them all at the same time....like this morning, everyone's status changed to admitted simultaneously.

Yup, exactly what I was thinking, too.

So what if your date changed during last friday, but you didn't receive any decisions this morning with the initial wave of admits? any thoughts on that group?
