Basically if youre in state, Harvard numbers get you a full ride, Duke numbers get you a half ride.

Interesting.. I'm a 3.96/169 MA In-Stater. Hopefully I'll get half tuition that would be awesome. But who knows really!

I don't think I have Harvard numbers. But maybe Columbia numbers.

Out of state, non-URM

I'll be sending my updated grades and resume once the semester ends, but if anyone has tips on gaining admission at UT after being held, that would be great! I'll be moving to Austin regardless of the decision, so if I was admitted I would enroll in a heartbeat. Thanks!


I hate to state the obvious, but retaking the LSAT would be your best bet. However, you are right at their 25% LSAT, so I do think you have a chance with your current score....... But a few more points and you could get serious money with that GPA!!!!!


Yeah, you're right about retaking :| I'm definitely planning to retake in June so I can re-apply in next year's cycle if this one doesn't work out, but I'm considering trying for February. Might be too late to affect their decision though.

Last June there was a TLSer who retook and got off the waitlist the day after scores came out, so I don't think feb would be too late.

Checking in. My numbers are low for Texas (168 LSAT/2.8 GPA) but I got an unsolicited fee waiver in my email today and figured I'd take a shot at it.

Eek! I submitted on October 31st so I'm probably in this week's batch! UT is a real real long shot with my numbers but even getting a rejection email would be a weight off my mind, if that makes sense! Best of luck to everyone!

Finally got a status checker email! Now I'm really nervous :shock:

(fwiw, it was the same EID I tried to get into earlier, but I was able to log into my old hotmail account to get the password)
