I have a feeling us on the waitlist and those waiting for PT will hear nothing until mid June at the earliest. I'd really like to attend but the longer I wait the more pessimistic about my chances I become.

I agree! I really want to know as well....just really hoping for positive news - so I can start making some decisions and planning the for the Fall. Judging by last years LSN (really NO data at all) movement started in July. Hoping that after those forms are due June 3rd and turned in we should start seeing movement around then! :|

That's really encouraging! I'm hoping the fact that I'm from Houston and my stats are just a hint outside of what they tend to go after help me get into the school for the fall.

Actually I have no idea I think he just told me the great news and his lsat score to make me jealous...he is just that kind of a guy plus he isnt a close friend so I dont know all the details. He went to Rice, , not a URM, from what Im guessing an a-ok GPA (3.2-3.3) and 151 LSAT score which Im sure about because he told me...wish I knew more myself :(

Denied today for full time.

152 LSAT
3.1 GPA

Not a surprise, but still disappointing.

I had good softs, military background, raised out of a car, super strong LORs from Professors, military leaders, and business owners, but in the end... its all a numbers game.

So I'm going back to my bibles and retaking my LSAT in October.

Well you have a compelling story. Get your numbers up and you will have your pick...I'm sure.
Good Luck on your LSAT!

I went through several reviews and then finally they waitlisted me in April for FT. I know someone with a higher LSAT score that got in within two weeks of submitting his app.

I just wanted to see if anyone was in the same boat as me. Has anyone just not hear from UH for FT? I have not bee accepted, denied, or waitlisted and my file was reviewed on 5-5 but nothing since then. I just want to know if anyone else has not heard anything before I email/call too see if they even know where my file is. Oh yea I applied back in january so it is not an issue of late application. Frustrating to not hear anything because they are my #1 choice.

For me, a month passed between each status change until the very end when my original "in review" status date changed twice and the decision was rendered within a couple of days. June 3rd is the deadline for admitted students to commit, so I imagine there will be a lot of decisions made after that date. However, at this late date, it seems appropriate for you to contact them to inquire about your file--to make sure that it is still active. I would send an email inquiring about the status of your file with strong emphasis that UHLC is your first choice and you would attend if admitted. Best of luck!
