Any thoughts on what is taking them so long on my app? I've submitted 10/21 and I got my status checker and complete email on the 28th of October. I keep seeing on here that people who have submitted before, after and at the same time as me have gotten rejected or accepted already. Am i a shoe-in to be deferred or waitlisted? UT seems fast so I can't imagine what the hold up is.

Thats what I thought, its my reach and I have good softs, but if its an auto-reject why is it taking them so long? I'd rather know sooner than later, even if it is a rejection.

Are you out of state? I'm trying to figure out if most of the dings are out of state people...

That makes sense, I've heard UT has a soft floor around 3.4-3.5.

170/3.4


Weird. Someone with a 173/3.49 got outright rejected. He was OOS though, are you in state by any chance?

Nope, OOS. I'm not sure what the deal is; as best as I can tell, those with similar numbers (including another 170/3.4x) have been uniformly rejected. Maybe I really am a special snowflake?

I think they've pretty much been mentioning scholarship offers on the phone call. Not specifics, but a general, "scholarship offer will be in the mail in 1-2 weeks" statement. So far it seems only people who heard that got the offers, but I'm not 100% on that. I do know I got an offer and was first told about it on the vm Dean Ingram left for me.

Well, I'll be the optimist here. My app was complete on 9/24 and I was accepted just on 11/18. I was getting impatient about my decision too, not all acceptances come quickly. no news is sometimes good news.
Hang in there, it'll come.

Auto admit numbers, I don't think you should have been worrying even it they took 3 months!

Question: Under status updates, it says:
Your JD application was processed on November 11, 2010

and then

Application was denied on November 18, 2010

I am assuming this means I'm out? Seems like a quick turnaround but at least glad I got a decision I guess...

Just found out via status checker that my application was denied. I applied ED with a 165 LSAT and GPA just below their 75%. I have also been registered for a retake for a few weeks. Kind of surprised I didn't get waitlisted

I sent you a PM. I'm really surprised by this too. Sorry man. LS admissions can be a little unpredictable sometimes. Don't give up. If you end up taking a year off, it's not the end of the world. I was very patient with my LSAT prep and application (2 years), and it really paid off for me. PM me if you need any help.
