I would think so. I would also throw GTown and Vandy in as peer schools. But dats just me


I know that UT will "match" peer school merit offers so I am currently seeing how much I can squeeze out of its peers


They will? I really wish I didn't get waitlisted by UCLA, then... They tend to give out big money to compensate for the tuition =\

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.[/quote]


I've heard several stories from current UT Law students that they were able to negotiate scholarships with 166s, 167s, and high LSATS/lowGPAs through the scholarship matching program. I believe those cuts-offs are for the initial scholarships and they'll seriously consider other offers for candidates slightly under during the 168/3.6 distinction during scholarship matching.

No, but I would like to have one in order to attend ASW. Would this question be best directed towards fin aid?


Let me know if you decide to contact admissions about this.

my understanding is that UT will match the cost of attendance... UT is already less expensive that many other peer schools, especially if you're tx-resident, so I think it's important to keep that in mind.

Does anyone think Texas might suffer in the new rankings b/c of the dean drama?

I think they might get hit some... but a lot of people think that they are gunning for raising their medians, so that may also change something.

True...I know their 75th increased by a decent margin since last cycle

Denied at 4:02 am. It only took two weeks. Yikes! Anyway, this is my farewell love letter to Texas.

Dear Texas,
I knew it was a long shot, but I had to try. Thanks for shootin' straight and not allowing me to hope longer than necessary. I'll take responsibility for believing the "we look at every individual application regardless of numbers," line. It was too quick a decision for that to be true in my case. I'll always remember the good times we had Austin. Please keep your eyes on me Texas, I'm not giving up on getting into a tier one law school. It's like you say, "til Gabriel blows his horn!"

Sincerely, prunenella83

You won't be getting any money, but you may be able to visit the school at the very least.

What are the chances for those on the waitlist? When are people sending LOCI(s)??

Lastly, to those already accepted, when is the first deposit due for Texas?
