This could be good news for those of us who applied late and haven't heard anything... maybe they've been waiting for this to come through to announce acceptances and scholarships.

I just received a phone call, I'm in!!!
And yet, my application status still says Review 2/11/11 (my first Review was 1/4/11). I hope the call wasn't some kind of joke...

Congrats! If you don't mind me asking, when did you turn in your application? Stats?

There is still hope for me. In state, non-URM, 162 and 3.21. I applied in November, but took the December LSAT.

Thanks for the info and congrats again!

I appreciate the unfounded optimism! Ha. I feel like I'm firmly on the bubble and really have no idea what to expect

I've applied, but haven't heard back yet. I didn't go to UT for undergrad, but I did live in Knoxville for many years. If anyone has any questions about the city I can field those. The long post I wrote in another, similar thread is a good starting point for those curious about Knoxville.

I wonder if/when they will send out more scholarship info? I've been accepted since before Thanksgiving and haven't heard anything.

Right? You think they'd be giving you money by the wheel barrow load if your stats are right.

I wish.....judging from LSN they don't give very much, except for the Law Scholars thing.


They should share their new million dollar grant....

I got my acceptance phone call today. The lady said that they had officially accepted me about 30 minutes before she called, and that they were mailing out a packet for me today as well. My status checker still is not updated, which is ironic considering how frequently I have been checking it... why do they even have one? Anyway, good luck to others. They said scholarship money was still a work in progress, but I will be applying for some external scholarships regardless. My numbers are 3.45/161, non-URM, in-state (Maryville), so I think I might have to go here for the cheap tuition. Does anyone know what sort of numbers it takes to get even a little bit of scholarship money?
