I believe in you! Don't give up hope...After all, I was super worried about not even getting an email from them.

Anyone know if there is a UT L1, L2, or L3 taking questions on a thread?

Serious question....is hispanic not URM at Texas or did I miss a memo? Are you guys the majority now? :lol:

j/k....well my numbers arent too far from yours and I'm AA so I still think you'll get a yes. If I'm right, you owe me a drink at ASW :D

Absolutely :) to clarify, Hispanic is a minority, but generally not given the URM boost.

In today! Missed a call from the Dean but was super excited to hear the news. Anyone know how long the scholarship packet takes to reach you after the call?

just got an email (at 4am?) saying that my application was held. Definitely better than a rejection! What is the proper procedure for a hold? I live in Texas and would most likely attend if admitted. LOCI? A why essay (I did not submit one)? Campus visit? Or just wait until I get a more concrete wait list? Thanks all and GL

166 / ~3.6 in state

Is it possible to send a "Why Texas" essay after you apply? If so, what is the procedure? I submitted my application recently, and haven't even received the status checker yet so I really want to get it in before they review my application.

Thanks

Got the hold e-mail at 4 AM as well. Very surprised - I figured my splitter status would mean auto-reject. I actually started crying before I opened the e-mail because I assumed it was the rejection e-mail. What is the proper procedure to send an LOCI? Do I just e-mail the admissions office with it attached? Should I snail mail it in? I am also planning to make a campus visit.

I was held as well, but I'm significantly below the 25% GPA and I'm just below the median LSAT so I was sure I'd be an auto-reject. I'm going to send another LOR and wait it out.

Held, do we have any historical data on people who are held re admissions decisions?

Adding myself to the "hold" group. OOS traditional splitter, above 75th LSAT and below 25th GPA. I'm not terribly surprised or upset by the news but it's making me feel uneasy about my other apps :(

edit: I sent on the 2nd and receive my status checker on the 12th. I think it was already complete when I first logged in. HTH

Held this morning via email. Submitted Nov. 01. 3.27/160/172. Texas resident.

While I appreciate not being rejected, it makes me a little uneasy. :|
