I sure hope you're right! I'd seriously give up a kidney to get into UT right now...


Yeah, I feel the same way.

My friend from my same undergrad applied ED and didn't hear until the end of March (and he was a URM with stellar numbers). He didn't do LSN or TLS. Keep in mind that LSN is not representative of all applicants, albeit one of the best sources for neurotic applicants still waiting for a decision.

Got to sit in a class while I was there, too. Never been more excited to attend law school. The camaraderie among the students is unbelievable and the class was fantastic.

The phone call was around mid-afternoon. I am living overseas though (so it was around 5:00am local time).

When I woke up, I saw the 512 area code on my Skype. :D

There is no St. Edward's law school. You may be thinking of St. Mary's, which is in San Antonio. UT is the only law school in Austin.


Wow my bad! I must have seen the credentials of some of these folks and misread the education information...carry on.

Although that brings me to a related point: If possible, go back in time and get a job with the Bush administration/campaign; it makes getting cushy jobs in Austin way easier.


St. Edwards is a school in Austin, though. It's just a university, no law school.

Yeah I know that...I have no idea where I got it in my head that they had a law school. I think I just assumed it was an analog to St. Thomas and Creighton (other places I've lived). Good to know there's no in-city competition.

Does the phone call or the status checker come first?

I think we've established that it's always a phone call and never a status check confirmation. :P

Makes you wonder if they have any contractual obligation to actually give you a place in the class.

Maybe your numbers were through the roof and you were essentially an auto-admit.

Maybe?
