Any admitted students in the Texas area going to the Admitted Student/Alumni reception in Houston on the 7th? Hard to tell from the email whether S/Os are okay to bring...?

Rejected this morning. Not surprised, my numbers are a little on the low side for Texas but it was worth a shot. Good luck to all.

In 11/22. Submitted on 10/31. Complete on 11/14.

I think my status checker was updated this morning as I didn't see this before I went to sleep last night. I don't know if I received a phone call.

Are there any other people that submitted completely at the ED deadline (I actually submitted 2 hours after it but they put me down as ED still) and have not heard back yet?

After reading this thread I kept thinking I'm 1000% auto-reject, starting to slowly hope they're maybe slightly considering my app (just recently felt this slight glimmer of hope so I'm sure rejection will be soon) lol

I applied on 9/12 and haven't heard anything. Maybe they're torturing me on purpose to punish me for presuming to apply to their school.

I thought there was an option on the app for RD, because I remember thinking... why would anyone not do an ED that is non-binding / only difference is you hear back sooner lol

I submitted late on 11/1 just in time for ED and I haven't heard. I'm well above both of their 75ths AND I'm a Texas resident. I have several Texas friends in the same situations.

+1

I put RD because I didn't realize ED was nonbinding. Maybe they'll think we're letting them take their time in order to make a more informed decision on us?? lol *hopeful thinking*

What does the status checker change to when you've been accepted? I've been complete since 11/3 and I'm just wondering. Every morning I check my e-mal waiting for the rejection but it hasn't come yet. *fingers crossed it never does...*

About a week or so after my decision it changed to Admission Granted on November 14, 2011.

It still said "being considered for Early Decision" for awhile though.

Just wondering, is everyone posting their acceptances/denials here mostly OOS?

Plus how much easier for instate to get in over oos?

OOS here.

I also just received my packet in the mail after discovering my admission via the status checker this morning. In addition to the standard letters, they enclosed a list of 2011 law clerks and two pamphlets on their public interest programs.

Look LS numbers for details, but I'd imagine it is a big boost to be from TX since the state can only legally have 35% OOS students and there are much more OOS apps

Simply put TX residents are competing with much less apps for almost double the spots than OOS

I'm sure this has been covered, but I'm a little worried...

I submitted my application 11/14 and received an e-mail 11/16 saying that they had received my application and my file would be complete when they received my report from LSAC. I haven't received any more emails from UT but the LSAC website says everything was sent on 11/15.

I've seen a few other posts saying you receive an e-mail with a link to a status checker once your app is complete, so I'm a little concerned I haven't received any more emails from them. Thoughts?

UT takes a little while. It took me two weeks to get my status checker, and with the holiday thrown in for you my guess is it should arrive sometime this week. I wouldn't start worrying until the end of the week.

So my status checker says admission granted a few days ago, but I definitely haven't gotten a phone call... so it looks like I'm IN!
