Hopefully they've gotten their partying out of their collective system, and can get to sober work of letting you guys in (and throwing money at me like I'm a stripper and they're Pac-Man Jones).

That’s exactly what I was wondering. Do you think they actually read this read? And if so why aren’t they sending out more letters??

I would assume that they offer scholarships to students that can increase their medians, so I would assume that if you're above a 153 LSAT you should be in the running for some money.

Man, I'd like to think that (hope you are right), but I am just unsure if that's going to happen.(check LSN)

I took a look at their past cycles there, and I saw some 153s and 154s with some scholarship money. Also, I just KNOW that they give out more scholarship money than LSN would indicate. Or they're very, very miserly.

I try not to be but I am a very spiteful man. If I do not hear back from South Texas by March 18th I wouldn't go if it was free. Idiotic yes, childish definitely. obviously they wouldnt care either way but on pure principle of putting me through such agonizing torture for a school of their level or tier I just cant understand it. I mean yale, pitt, lsu, columbia wutever drag me out till april 20th and ill be on the first plane. But really South Texas? I mean really :evil:

lol well id have to go if it was free, but id have an angry face every class. Im well above all the standards, like everyone in my range gets accepted according to that chart, wtf

First time posting...Does anyone know the chances of someone getting into South Texas with a 2.8 and 158 LSAT? This is my first choice of school and I'm really anxious. I was told that by the end of March most of the decisions would be made. Do they really take into serious consideration factors such as: working full-time throughout undergrad and drastic improvements in GPA over the course of undergrad?

I would say you have an above-average shot at getting into South Texas...say around 60-65%.

Thanks, I'm so nerved up because reading this thread it seems like many people are still in limbo not knowing. I hope to hear something by the end of March.

They don't even start making decisions until Feb. Got mine Feb 7 and still have not heard about scholarship. I would love to go here, bc a lot of my friends are moving to houston and there are a lot of opportunities in the field i want to practice. (and i got waitlisted at u of h) But they have been terrible at responding to my questions, slow about getting decisions made for admissions and scholarships, and generally weak effort from their admissions office compared to other schools. I don't want to discourage anyone else from going bc I'm sure it's a fine school, but they have mostly just annoyed me this cycle.

I would really like to go here because I work full-time & they offer a part-time program. From what I've been reading, it's not even worth the time to go to Thurgood Marshall.

I try and stay optimistic and think they just have a lot on their plate, but I have only called over their once and they just seemed like they really did not want to speak to me. I have been more impressed with the admissions at every other school i have spoken too.

They don't rank 3/4 tiers, but I'd be willing to bet TSU is like 195+/200

Welcome to the new people :D

I will agree, STCL's lack of rolling admissions is frustrating (and I only had to wait a week after Feb. 15, I'm sure you'll be getting that admit email any day now, Tonio), but they have been consistently saying that the scholarship info will be released by the end of March (I guess they wanna get a good number of admissions out of the way before they start handing out money), and I haven't had any problems with the Admissions Dept, but I have heard (I think it was from txadv11) that the Administration can sometimes be frustrating, but it's a good school overall.

Also, as to the TSU thing, all of it is credited. It would be free for me to go there, but I would rather work at Mickey D's than gamble with my future by going there.
