UT Law FAQ wrote:How does an applicant determine his or her status as a resident or nonresident?
Generally, an applicant must reside and establish a domicile in the state of Texas for a period of one year prior to enrolling as a student. The University’s Residency Officer, not the Law School, makes determinations of residency status. Questions concerning a candidate’s classification as a resident or as a nonresident should be addressed to Residency Officer, Graduate and International Admissions Center, The University of Texas, P.O. Box 7608, Austin, TX 78713-7608; telephone: (512) 475-7391.
Is it true that the Law School only admits 35% of its students from out of state?
No, the Law School may matriculate no more than 35% nonresident students; however, each year the Law School extends offers of admission to several hundred nonresident applicants
UT Law FAQ wrote:If I decide to apply for Early Decision Admission, will this increase my chances of being admitted?
Applicants who decide to apply for Early Decision Admission will not have a greater probability of being admitted nor will applicants who want to apply under Regular Decision Admission be at a disadvantage in the admissions process. The same standards and criteria will be used to evaluate all applicants, whether the application is filed Early or under Regular Decision Admissions. The advantage to those applying Early Decision is the possibility of receiving a final decision much earlier in the process. By holding a portion of the Early Decision applicants for review with the pool of Regular Decision applicants, we ensure that neither group is advantaged or disadvantaged.
