Congrats to those that got in and good luck with the rest of your schools.


I applied ED sent mine in on Nov. 1 went into review Nov. 18, and still haven't heard anything which is kind of surprising considering it was the first app I sent in. I guess my PS might of pissed off someone on the admissions committee.

They didn't start releasing decisions until 1/5 or so, so don't worry about it. It's still early in their cycle.

Has anyone received a rejection letter as an early decision applicant yet? My status is stuck on "file in review" as of 12/21/11.

Pretty furious right now. I hadn't been logging into status checkers until recently and when I logged into houston's I found out I have another residency questionnaire to fill out. I sent them an e-mail a couple days ago to figure out if this will be affecting my chances. No response. Encouraging. Ridiculous. I think when I'm down there this weekend I'm going to visit the admissions office personally. How much do you think my chances are affected by sending this in now, rest of the app was complete 11/16.

Don't worry about it. I had the same thing too. My status had changed to admitted before they emailed asking for the residency info. Letter came a few days after I emailed it back in. I applied in Oct. and don't think it held up my application at all (a day max).

Hey congrats! I was admitted on jan 13. How long did it take for your admit letter/package to arrive? I've never been to Houston but strongly considering, especially if the price is right.

I was admitted on 1/2 and the packet was mailed 1/10 IIRC. Houston's a great city and a solid school in the Texas market. I have family and friends there, but it's probably not going to be the right choice for me.

Got the decision rendered - admitted update on the 14th but still no letter or package. Is this normal to have to wait so long?

Updated to today's day, but still in review. At least I know for sure they are working on it.
