Hard to say. Those are good numbers for TN as a URM, so that might sort of slingshot you to the front of the line. I am oos with similar numbers but non URM. I've been waiting since mid december. TN has been fairly quiet here lately, so it is hard to determine exactly what they are doing.

Good Luck!


The person is also non URM. Since you're OOS and the numbers don't stand out, I think your chances aren't great b/c you applied so late. But if you are from a state that's not really represented at Tennessee or something else stands out you have a better shot.

Haha...yeah. I thought a decision had been rendered, but no. Immediately logged in to status checker, no change.

I think they did it to mess with us

I didn't get that one today. I think I got something similar about a month ago though... I really wish law schools would spend less time emailing us with useless info and more time reviewing apps.

I thought it was a rejection, because the other rejection I got also started with "Thank you for applying..."

applied early December still haven't heard a thing. OOS 164 2.9.

UT has such a unique ap it would be impossible for them to YP, so I'm assuming in state is a huge bonus. otherwise I think I would be in.. at any rate this doesn't bode well for scholarships.

I hope you're right about in state being a huge bonus

I think I read on their website something about them having to accept at least 60% TN residents, so I guess that is a bonus.

Yeah. I'm in state. Right at 25th for LSAT and right at 75th for GPA. I'd be thrilled to get in

Hopefully they will release more decisions soon, it seems that for the most part everyone admitted got phone calls fairly early, but it has been relatively quiet ever since.

Good Luck!

I'm praying for an acceptance. Median LSAT, in-state, slightly below 25th GPA with a huge upward trend. GBO.

Good luck to you too man. I'm expecting a waitlist, but you seem pretty close to an admit. I'm prepared to bombard them with LOCIs if that's the case. But seriously, how much would it blow to get rejected from your home state's flagship university after getting accepted to peer/higher ranked schools OOS? I've probably spent enough cash in Neyland to single handedly fund some out of stater's scholarship.

I don't know, I'm not holding my breath. My LSAT isn't doing me any favors. Did you go to UT for UG?

About how long does it take for scholarships to come after acceptances?

Dear Tennessee,

You are such a tease. Send me an acceptance letter before you keep me updated on your excellence via newsletter.

'K thx,

E

You check out LSN? It's self reported, so you can't tell how many exactly, but you can tell they haven't sent out a flood of acceptances or denials in a good while.

I've been under review since 11/15, but now I'm under review as of 2/11... does that mean I have a decision coming soon?

Also, the newsletter was tremendously unfair. I ended up getting more disappointed than I would have been over a rejection.

You're doing better than me. I'm still under review as of 11/15.

According to the status checker heading,

"During this review process you may see your status remain the same but the date change. This happens as your application moves through the review process. When a decision has been made you will be notified as quickly as possible."
