Congratulations!

From the looks of it, they may be pulling their top numbers first before they ask poor Texas91 and I to join. Gah. Which means (if we get in) we could be waiting until mid-March. *barf*

Did you look at LSN? It looks like they are considering some people w/ lower GPAs and 167-170s. They might be doing the same for you guys, especially if you got the interview invite.

Right. They're more LSAT friendly--I know. Unfortunately, I happen to be a reverse splitter, as are most of the people in my number family that I've been PMing. The R-Splitters are the ones they've been inviting to interview.

Which hopefully means that they want to bump their high LSAT median up before watering it down a little with my gang.

Haha. I was trying to be optimistic for you. Thought process: padding LSAT w/ splitters and their GPA drops and now they need you + your GPA + URM status probably helps. But I don't see why they would hold off w/ the reverse splitters if they have already started accepting people below medians. I'm just jelly because I really wanted an interview and I'm jealous of your GPA. I still think though that it sounds like you have had some pretty good signs. Good luck!

I know making fun of aggies is a really stupid joke. But it's fun. I'm hoping the "hehehehe" horned frog is in reference to why A&M 's saying or whatever is "gig em". (don't act like you aren't impressed that I know that.)

I didn't get in until after July 4th after being wait-listed some time in February if memory serves, so don't give up hope. I thank god every day that I never withdrew my UT app and ended up here instead of Boston College.

Has anyone who already interviewed heard back from admissions?

I also sat in on a class this past Thanksgiving time. I was also very impressed with the teaching quality and students (well... some of them). UT is #1 in my book.

There aren't many who've interviewed yet. I interviewed last week and they said it would be a "few weeks" before I would hear anything.

When you went for a tour did you meet with anybody on the admissions committee? I want to visit the school but I don't want to go all the way there without letting them know how much I want to be accepted. Ugh, I hate this wait.

I just met with the admin assistant before the tour guide showed up, and there was also a student working in the office who came to talk to us while we waited. I enjoyed the tour and the class I sat in on, but I wouldn't have done if it I hadn't been in the area anyway.

I honestly wouldn't waste your time if your only goal is to increase chances of admittance. I took a tour and sat in on a class a couple weeks ago with that as a secondary goal and didn't interact with anyone who would have influence on admissions decisions. It's maybe something you could use in a LOCI but that is about it.

Yes. I said hello to some folks in the admissions office and provided essentially what is a letter of interest stating what I did that week (tour, class, etc) and how it's still my top choice. Visiting and stating it's your top choice IMHO is worth something.
