I wonder how long until they make the decision...


I got it ~1 month after submission.

1.5X / 166 In state waitlisted today via email. I applied at the last minute, day before the deadline, and didn't include any extra statements. I wonder what my chances are.

So, I got a better offer at UVA. Does anyone know if UT will match it -- even if I already get resident rate?

It has to be a typo. One can't technically graduate with a 1.5

And if one can, please accept my apologies.

UT will consider all your competing offers ONCE, so don't get impatient. They'll let you know what to do and when.

Ah, so they let us know when the negotiating door has opened?

Yeah, if you're getting nervous, call FinAid and ask about the process and deadline. Basically, you mail in copies of all your other offer letters, and they reevaluate your package. But when I applied, they were very clear that it was a one-time deal.

You applied the day before the deadline and you already heard back from them??? Did you apply 1/31?

So, let me get this straight - if I haven't received a scholarship offer with the admissions packet, I shouldn't expect one?

for the record:
167/3.83 in-state, got the call 1/19.

Not true. Scholly letter comes after acceptance package. Usually by a week or so.

I heard back in about 6 weeks so I can see someone hearing back in 4. Texas seems to move a lot faster than many law schools.

Well, it took me a full six weeks, but I just got the call! She mentioned that I'll be receiving a scholarship offer but didn't specify an amount. I've always heard that Austin is a really awesome place to live, so now I'm just hoping they give me enough money to justify choosing UT. Exciting!

I love Texas and will likely attend, but you should probs go to Harvard (or Yale if you're admitted). :)

Well, I would definitely go to Yale if admitted, without a second thought...but there are a lot of things I dislike about Harvard--enough to make me at least look around and consider other options.

That's very valid. If I had the numbers to go to Harvard...I would still think twice about it. Yale seems really great though. I hope you get in!

Literally just received my acceptance phone call! :) (Sent my application on 1/30)
They indicated that my official letter would be following via USPS.

Looks like I have a lot of serious considering to do.

Would that be the date you're provided access to the status checker? If so than it was on 2/17. I never received any communication from them aside from this and an initial email indicating receipt of my application. (And today's phone call.)

It's been ~a month. Thinking it could have been lost in the mail, or maybe the fact that I haven't completed student loan exit counseling as an undergrad may have put a bar on my info. Should I call the finaid office and ask about scholarship info, or wait for ASD?
