the question above me.

AND: Is it general consensus that they send out the status checkers only a few days (-> a week) before a decision is made? That's what it seems like, anyway

I've had my status checker for about a month with no decision. Maybe this speaks to my chances, or lack thereof, but I don't think there is a direct correlation.

Alright, I guess I'll be waiting awhile then (just got status / texas is my reach)

My numbers are above the 75% (out of state) and I've been sitting on the status checker at "complete" since 11/3 (submitted 10/25).

Same boat as you, but no email yet. When did you mail in your application?

Was anyone accepted in the first week who hasn't gotten a scholarship? I'm starting to get a little worried that there may not be one coming my way.

I mailed it 11/1, status checker 11/3, fee waiver approval via status checker 11/15.


I mailed mine the same day as you, but I haven't even gotten a status checker email yet. I wonder at what point I should email them and make sure they've gotten my application. (Though their website is pretty clear about not getting updates through email or phone calls.) :x

Yeah, I've been sitting pretty at complete since 9/25. Although I am below their GPA floor

My status says "Your JD application was processed on November 11, 2011
and is currently being considered for Early Decision " Is being considered different from what those of you who are saying you are complete? Mine has never said "complete".

That's what mine said also. That's their way of saying under review.

Deans Sager and Ingram were just at my school. They said they were probably going to get decisions to ED applicants before winter break. Unfortunately, they also mentioned that their applications have increased by 15% or something so far this year.

hopefully the increase came from applicants who didn't stand a chance to begin with .... I know it's mean but hey can you blame me?

That's hard to believe but it might have more to do with UT's rise to the T14 than it does as a broader reflection of this year's applicant pool

Dean Sager explicitly said that it had to do with the rise in the USNWR ranking.

Goodbye tx chances :( lol

Also, the theory is that LSAT numbers are down this cycle because people have finally realized that lots of students are graduating law school unemployed.

But it's widely known that Texas is one of the few places that hasn't been that badly hit by the recession, and UT graduates tend to get jobs in Texas, so perhaps a greater awareness of the unemployment situation is helping UT. I know that's half of the reason I applied.

What percentage of graduates get biglaw out of UT? Is it possible to get NY or Chicago, and what grades are necessary?

+1 Probably wouldn't have applied to UT in previous cycles but Austin/Texas employment and COL looks pretty enticing.

It blows my mind that a move 1 spot in the rankings makes that big of a difference to some people. :roll:

I know. USNWR rules all for so many people.
