No status change on my status checker.... the online stuff is rather worthless throughout the process.

Is the most likely response a call if accepted and an email if rejected / waitlisted?

I'm an undergrad going straight into law school...could it be my engineering major?

Also, is every who went to UT@UT skipping ASD?

Ya. They call you if accepted (sometimes after 5 p.m. CST) and you will get an auto-email in the morning if WLed or dinged.

As of an hour ago I can vouch for the accuracy of this statement. :lol: Waitlisted.

I know it was briefly mentioned earlier, but what's the range of schools UT will tango with concerning scholarship matching? I got a full-ride from Minnesota (don't ask me why because I don't know) and I'm hoping that will make them budge.

Would you mind divulging your approximate stats, either here or through pm. I am mostly interested in the UMN full.


It's all in my profile. 3.76/166 (am a UMN alum but I'm not sure if that is actually relevant [edit: as I am now a texas resident, or should be])

Considering they haven't been acknowledging UCLA full rides I can't see Minnesota motivating them.

And you got a full ride to Minnesota because you have a 166 and a pulse.

Haha true...they were holding fast at 167 for months but clearly that plan did not work out. Oh well; I'd love to stay in Austin but if they don't move then I may have to.

Don't sell him too short now. They only offered me half tuition at a 169, so he must have done something right.

Agreed. I only got 72K from Minnesota with a 168. I tried to negotiate and they didnt budge. I would have withdrawn but Im hanging on to a lot of schools because Im thinking that they may overestimate the number of people that end up attending their schools so they may up scholarship offers around deposit deadlines.

Thanks for the backup. I thought about getting uppity to defend my alma mater (considering that is something Texas alums are contractually obligated to do) but he is probably right. DON'T MAKE ME GO BACK TO HOT DISH NOW THAT I'VE HAD MIGAS PLEASE GOD NO

Wasn't making fun of Minn, I haven't followed them too closely this cycle but I know they were making it rain early on and recently heard they started throwing full rides at waitlisted 166s.

Objectively they are one of the biggest rankings gamers of all law schools however when it comes to manipulating medians.

I'll post here because this thread gets the most traffic- anyone want to hit up 6th street on Thursday night? Car has his party on Friday which is awesome but I think it would be a shame if we are all in Austin for two nights and only party for one.

Just a thought :lol:

Im definitely down for 6th St. I want to visit it at least once when Im there and may even check it out Wednesday night when I get in (briefly). Ive heard Rainey Street is a cool nightlife spot as well.

Damn, waitlisted today. Will accept, but time for me to start looking for jobs! If anyone knows of any good Austin/Round Rock jobs let me know. Good luck to everyone who is still waiting and congrats to everyone who's preparing to enter in the fall!
