Received my admit packet in the mail a little over two weeks ago and still nothing about a scholarship. Should I call the admissions office or is it safe to assume that I'm not getting one?

Same deal. I got the call on the 20th (18 days ago), and no scholarship information yet. I sent the admissions department an e-mail asking if I should be expecting something, and they just sent back a boilerplate form response that didn't answer the question. Historically, people with stats like mine have gotten some pretty generous offers, but who knows.

Does anyone know the percentage of waitlisted applicants UT normally offers admission to? While I know it is bound to change depending on the cycle, is there a rough estimate out there?

Stats weren't great though so I guess I should've expected it.

If you survived the massive ding/waitlist wave this week, I predict a phone call in your future.

I don't think anyone could predict this. I do know, however, that one year they didn't let anyone off of it.

I appreciate your optimism. But if you got waitlisted, especially with all your work experience and Teach for America, I have nothing but doubts for myself.

I am below the magical 3.4 line. Aren't you right at it? Or above it? Maybe I'm not remembering correctly...

Only to OOS applicants with large schollies. They contact you if you're eligible.

So I submitted on 1/27 and still haven't gotten a status checker email, just the general, "We have received your application" Texas is a reach for me so I am not really expecting to get in, but it still seems strange to get nothing for almost 2 weeks...

I am in the same boat re: super reach. No worries on the status checker; I submitted in early January and it took nearly three or four weeks to receive mine.

I just talked with the financial aid office, and they were able to tell me the exact gpa/lsat cutoff point at which they start offering scholarships. I assumed that it wasn't a holistic, 'he seems like a 78k kind of guy' sort of thing, but I was surprised that, number one, there's no leeway (3.59/180 gets no-offered), and number two, that they were so open about where it is. It's 3.6/168 for non-URMs, by the way.

So if you have a 167 does that mean you'll never get a dime, even after negotiation? Im 3.8 Gpa so that limit seems super arbitrary, and kind of unfair. Oh well.

idk how magical that 3.4 line is...i'm above it, waitlisted, with solid softs

the nice lady at the admissions office said a LOCI would be helpful. she also mentioned that WL offers typically go out during/after June (when they send out letters of intent to admitted students)

happy friday
