My first acceptance this cycle, after 3 rejections and a waitlist, I'm pumped to get some good news. Plus I love Austin/UT.


Congrats! And Austin is a great place to live!

Not entirely sure, I still have a few schools I'm waiting to hear from, but it's definitely a great option!

Gotcha, I guess hookem refers to your undergrad then...I'm not sure either, but it's been near the top of my list.

Hah, whoops! At least great longhorns think alike.

This may belong in the off-topic section, and some of yall have probably seen it already, but I think it's a little relevant (and it's been cracking me up all week). To anyone that either lives in or is about to live in Austin, prepare for inhabitants like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sel1qIWg5w0

Haha pretty spot on. I would suggest Portlandia as an Austin hipster prep course. Also attorney or law student will never fly. You will need to say you work full time at one of the local pizza joints or something.

Congrats all! I got the call yesterday as well! Complete early December.

Does anyone know if the scholarship offer comes with the acceptance package or in a separate letter?

Ah, ok. Thanks for the response! I was a bit worried...

Did the UT application status page change for those who were admitted? I have been at "Complete" since November 28, and wondering if they update the status on the site, or just call/mail decisions.

Just checked my voicemail and I'm in! Insanely surprised considering I'm from out of state but thrilled none the less! Good luck, everyone!

I got the call Tuesday, and my status hasn't changed at all since going complete.

It changes after about a week or so to "Admission granted on...."

When can we expect rejections to start coming in? I'm in at some great schools but would be really tempted to take the crazy cheap tuition at UT, but think that I'm probably below their GPA floor.

Got the call yesterday! I'm about 90% sure I'll be accepting.
