I love you. My parents approve of you, and my friends think you are the coolest. We both love football and look great in burnt orange. You could offer me a secure future. Sure, the heat isn't my favorite, but Austin is possibly the greatest city ever and I want to live right near Zilker Park and the Town Lake Trail for the next 3 years. Right now it takes too long to get to my favorite places in Austin. Plus, if I go to you I can live in a waaay nicer apartment Pretty please call me. You don't even have to pay me. I'll be right over if you do.

Love,
Akili


Is the thought process that you're taking on a bunch of debt to go to law school, getting a better/more expensive apartment is only gonna make the debt situation marginally worse? If so, I understand completely.

Haha sort of. I'm in-state at UT and have a decent chance at a scholarship, therefore making UT by far the best school that will be cheap for me. So I feel like an apartment upgrade will be a sound investment. I live in a crappy crappy bug infested apartment right now that is waaay too far North. Ugh.

I wish there was a pattern to these phone calls!

It doesn't seem like it though. I've seen super high stats, avg. stats, in-state, OOS, held/not held. What the heck UT? Show me some love por favor.

I know. I've been trying to make sense of it but I can't. There isn't even a pattern of when the people have submitted/completed their apps.

Thanks almost number-twin! Honestly, I really want to go tour UT, etc...and I am really hoping to get a decision soon. For right now I have quite a few safeties that I'm lingering at and I want to make space for other people (I know it doesn't quite work that way, but I still feel like I do a good deed when I withdraw)

Did they call after 5? If so, good to know they're workin' still.

Calling people to tell them they're accepted must be the best thing in the world...I bet it takes some of the pain out of having to reject so many people...
