You're one of the lowest OOS (#s wise) I've seen so far (excluding URMs). Congrats!

Thanks. Wrote a Why UT, great work experience, and in my opinion very strong softs from undergrad. Must have given me the needed boost.

How did you hear? I'm very interested because I'm OOS, 169/3.4 and I have really, really good softs and WE, and I didn't write a Why UT. I'd argue you're as close as I'll get to a twin.

Yes, right at the top. Waiting on one other school that might change my mind, but it's a long shot.

I got the call from Dean Ingram. On LSN all 169 admits have at least a 3.6 <http://texas.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats>, so your GPA may be holding you back as of right now. Keep holding out though, hopefully good news will come in due time.

Aye, one more reason I bloody hate my now former school's ridiculous curriculum. Congrats yourself!

Waitlisted with a 3.7, 166, good recs, decent softs, etc.

Anybody know what my chances are on the waitlist? Have any friends with a similar experience?

I thought people who are supposed to be receiving them have already been notified? Or were they just invites earlier?

No because Texas has a pretty soft GPA floor at 3.4. I've seen them reject 170+/3.4s.

I did not get this particular scholarship. The law school covers my tuition and fees. The Texas Exes alumni association gives me a separate stipend each semester. It's possible to get a full-tuition scholarship from the law school even if you're not one of the eight Townes-Rice scholars.

Good luck everyone.

I just got a 5:00 AM email offering me a spot on the waitlist. I'm in shock. All I want to do is respond to the email saying "Fuck you, Texas."

I'm 169, 3.69 LSDAS GPA, 3.7 UGPA, OOS. Check out LSN. The only higher WL than me is a 173, 3.6. I don't know what I could have done wrong. If there had been a major error on my application, I would have gotten straight rejected, right? I just don't understand. I have the median GPA and 75% LSAT. People with my numbers from OOS are getting IS tuition, some more money on top of that. I have three instances of prolonged work experience in law offices dating back to my senior year in high school. Why has my number one choice forsaken me? Why didn't I write a Why Texas essay? Oh, yeah, because I was median GPA and 75th LSAT, I didn't deem it necessary. I guess they didn't deem it necessary to admit me without one, either. Would it had even helped?

http://texas.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats ... Cycle=1011

At least one thing is for sure: Texas is not just about the numbers. I learned that the hard way.

Should I even bother staying on the WL? I don't want to wait until July to find out if I'm in or not. I also cannot attend without the scholarship I fully expected to receive, and I know no money will come if they happen to admit me later. This has completely ruined my cycle and drained any motivation I had about going to law school.

@Pricer:

Sorry to hear that, but try to put it in perspective. You applied relatively late for one of the limited out of state spots. They may have already made all of their bigger OOS money offers and may not feel that they can afford to recruit you. If your application has no flaws, Michigan, Duke, Georgetown are all possible, and Vandy is almost a certainty, as would be schools like USC and UCLA. Your cycle is far from over unless you ONLY wanted Texas, in which case a Why UT would have been a smart move.

You'll be fine, you have great numbers for anywhere between 13 and down, and they may get you in anywhere between UM and Duke depending. Chill.

FWIW, I felt similar when Michigan rejected me, but I just figured it was something in my application. Find your explanation and move on.

Ah, sorry for the misinformation--I think I remember you saying you received a stipend and I only knew of the Townes-Rice stipend. Nice deal, regardless.

The only thing about that is that other OOS applicants that submitted the same time as me have been getting accepted with numbers around mine. But I appreciate the encouragement. I agree that not writing Why UT statement was quite idiotic.

My Vandy decision was mailed out two days ago, so I should be receiving it soon. I'm expecting WL, but praying admit. Still, I won't get money from them, and $200k debt is a lot. I'm also still waiting to hear back from UCLA, USC, Cornell, UVA, and Michigan. I expect to get into UCLA and USC, but I had kind of talked myself out of the west coast since I have zero connections, have never actually been, and keep hearing that Cali is suffering. I expect to get into Cornell, too, but I don't think I could handle the freezing winters or working in NYC, not to mention the debt. If for some reason UVA or Michigan accepts me -- which I fully expect a straight reject, not even a WL -- I believe I would take on the debt to pay sticker at one of those. UVA and UT were equal favorites, but I never thought I stood a shot at UVA. My numbers are too low for my softs to be so weak.

Well, if all else fails, I've been accepted to UGA, where I went to undergrad and live in state. I expect some scholarship money from them on top of an already insanely low in state tuition and CoL. I also have a couple of amazing connections in the Atlanta legal market. Maybe I should just stay here.
