The Facebook page says they only give them to high level scholarship recipients and those students will be contacted individually


I think it is high level scholarship recipients that are out of state, so slightly more selective with it =\
Because most admits are from the state, and it is only a three hour drive for people in Dallas or Houston.

If you live in El Paso (like me), you're pretty much screwed. You're practically in New Mexico, and it's almost 200 dollars just to get to Austin (driving is nine hours through a miserable stretch of I-10, and the flights are usually at least 100 per trip, unless you can get a 80 dollar deal per SW, 160 roundtrip).


Yeah I drove all the way from the Panhandle to Austin two years ago for ASW (18 hours round trip of torturous driver boredom with nothing to look at but dead grass)...no travel subsidy.

I'm out of country right now so I can't go to ASW, but I would go again if I could. Met really cool people, the tours and information were helpful and it's always nice to visit Austin. Hope y'all have fun this year.

How are the held people holding up? I'm still waiting and I'm pretty nervous

It looks like there have been some EA holds accepted already.

Is it weird to have not gotten any update one way or the other at this point?

Yeah I got accepted after being at hold. I originally got held and retook, so that and URM status probably pushed me over the top.

I'm in the same boat. I haven't heard one thing from them yet. But I'm too scared to ask them.

Have the held people sent in LOCIs? I was going to wait and only send one if I got waitlisted, but now I'm thinking maybe I should?

In yesterday! So excited to find out by an email from them. I was held in EA and sent them a LOCI.
Do anyone know if the scholarship information is in the acceptance mail?

Edit: OOS, international applicant

Waitlisted via 4am email. I think I'm the first URM I've ever seen with my numbers to get waitlisted at Texas. This cycle has been a disaster for me so far.

Waitlisted this morning via email. A little surprised since I got into Georgetown within three weeks of applying, but it looks like UT last year had a 3.5 GPA cutoff

What is with this school? I am so confused. I really think I have autoreject numbers, been complete since fall, and I've heard nothing.

I'm sorry. You are 1 LSAT point and .1 GPA points above me. This does not bode well for me. : (


Are you in-state or out of state?
