+1

I can understand the T13 rational, but I think HT10 (historical top 10) or something else would be a better term. (And then when Texas cracks the top 10 someday they'll be out of excuses. :D)

I'm also worried that the only measurable change from being in the T14 will be an uptick in ranking-obsessed douchecanoes in attendance. :| Not anyone here, but a few of the annoying people at my visit day thing were planning on going to GULC or other schools for rank/prestige reasons, and it made me glad.

This too. There was something comforting about being at the "top of the bottom" as opposed to being the "bottom of the top." Let the douchebaggery commence.

hasn't Texas been t10 before? in the very early years of the rankings.

I forgot to tell you - as you suggested I went to the kite festival with my momma bear. :-) Austin seems like a great place to raise a family.

I also ate at Chuy's, the Salt Lick, NXNW, and some other random places. My favorite of all things was the cupcake truck. Full disclosure - I am a vegetarian and went to the Salt Lick because I still thought that my mom should get a taste of the q. :-) Turns out their green bean casserole was awesome. Also, I am not kidding, but their peach/blackberry cobbler AND pecan pie were the best of those desserts I have ever tried. And I am hardcore into my southern cuisine. You could tell they didn't use any corn syrup in the pie. We also did a wine tasting at the Salt Lick and I was really pleasantly surprised by Texas wine.


If you're veg*n, you should try Veggie Heaven - it's at the corner of Guadalupe and 21st at the opposite end of campus from the law school. Worth the walk, though.

If Anyone has questions about this or wants more specifics, PLEASE PM ME instead of CALLING UT. Jesus.

ASW next Wed/Thur.

Ticket they call you. You may get a stipend of $200. You might get nothing.

Veggie Heaven is awesome! But when I have sudden tofu cravings, it's always Hoa Hoa that comes to mind.

Yeah, just called admissions, the lady there described the way people get stipends as "kind of random." She's going to email some stuff though, hopefully that settles it. Is there a pattern as to who gets tickets/stipends?

I got stipend, but no ticket. I asked for it, no go. I have no idea how they choose.

PLEASE PM me if you want clarification.

ETA: I'm of the belief that more information for everyone is better, that's assuming everyone uses discretion and common sense. In this instance, I was essentially outed due to my sharing info.

I also got the feeling that the process was very random. She said the "travel scholarship" was given based on merit but basically had no guidelines as to what constituted "merit". She said she had no idea if I would get a stipend and, if I did, she had no idea when I would find out. The trip is adding up to be a lot more than I hoped to spend. Oh well, just happy to be admitted with a competitive scholarship.

If this is true, someone needs to find the proof so we can post it and gain some freakin respect!
