Don't send it in until it's due. Most of the money action happens in April. If you are committed there is no reason to try to recruit you.

akili, can you clarify whether you received the scholly letter and general admissions packet as 2 separate mailings?

I just got my admissions packet today (damaged, open).

Thanks! and congrats!

2 separate! Mine was open too. In fact, I think a lot of people had a similar experience

Scholarship letter was in a small white envelope. I about peed my pants when I saw it in my mailbox :oops:

I'm pretty sure everyone's been receiving them in separate mailings. I certainly hope they come separately, otherwise I'm SOL on scholly. :) I got my admit packet today as well. It included, in addition to the obvious letter etc, some flyers re. clerking, the advocacy program, and a UT Law newsletter.

Nice. That's some fast mail you've got. Our USPS don't get around to delivering my mail until 3ish CST.

This would be enough to persuade me to go to UT.

Got my status checker, finally, this morning.

For anyone not sure where they want to go yet, it feels like its 70 here today. I'm wearing a t-shirt and shorts. Why is NYU/Columbia even on your list???

Is the status checker accessible with your UT EID, or is it a separate link?

Thanks! and Congrats! Yeah, I definitely feel like this changed the game a bit. Was starting to feel a little overwhelmed by the cycle and getting lost in TLS madness. Now I'm back to feeling really damned lucky :)

LuBru wrote:$15k/yr scholarship at UT as well! It came in small white envelope about a week after my mangled admission packet. I'm super surprised because my numbers are low. I was starting to wonder if my options would be full ride at TTT or sticker at a top 20... this really helps!


Ok, good, so it could potentially come a week after admit packet. I was worried when a UT envelope wasn't in the mail today after I received admit packet yesterday.

Congrats on the scholly!

Officially freaking out...admit call 1/19, generic accepted letter the 20th or 21st...

...no scholarship envelope in mah mailbox today :(

Texas, I really like you, but I can't afford sticker price for your school :|

Edit: Don't mean to sound like a jerk who's entitled to money...it's just it would take some $ for me to consider UT and let's just say I REALLY want to consider them :|

Wait and see if you get anything. And there is a limit of # of in-state waiver they can give per year I think. So soon as some people withdraw, some may become available and regifted to others.
