Why do they take so long to reject people who are obviously way below their GPA floor?

Does anyone know approximately how long it takes for scholarship offers to come after the admission itself? A couple weeks? A couple months?

Does anyone know if being accepted to a higher ranked school could increase your scholarship offer at Texas?

Approx one week


If I got my letter with no schools, should I assume none at all, or does it come separate?

Did Dean Ingram mention it when she called? When I got the phone call she mentioned a scholarship offer then I got it a week after my initial acceptance letter

No, and I actually talked to a male assistant dean. Oh well.

Btw, I'm glad you got that I meant schollys. Stupid autocorrect.

Cool, thanks. If anyone's obsessively keeping track of these things in a big spreadsheet, I got in last week, and I'm 3.6/173, in state, UT undergrad. In fact, I was actually at an academic summer camp type thing at UT during high school when they were (I guess?) installing the current UTEID system, and all the kids there got YOURNAME@utexas.edu e-mails rather than the xyz789 ones that the students got later in the fall. I used it through undergrad, so presumably that'd be the one I got if I went to law school there. I'm probably giving this factor a lot more weight than I have any right to in the overall decision making process.

Its separate and for what its worth, she did not mention my scholly in the call and I still got an offer the next week.

Has anyone received a scholarship after the call from Sam Reilly? I'm wondering if there's any correlation between who calls you and if you get money.

In as of 3:37 p.m. MST here in West Texas. Quick turnaround too. About three days since I received the email with my UT EID (though I already had it).

3.6/165/URM. Went to UT for undergrad.

However, I might withdraw soon since I managed to get in to my top choice.

Good luck to those still waiting.
