Did your acceptance letter say when your enrollment fee would be due? Just wondering because I'm on the waitlist.

Ok, So I'm in at STCL and like so many, want to UofH really badly. Any advice on how to get off the waitlist? I am only applying for the part-time program. I've already visited and sent in a LOCI but still heard nothing. Historically, does their waitlist move much? I appreciate any help you guys can offer.

I like how this school waitlists people and then never speaks to them again. No updates whatsoever.

For waitlist people - the next commitment stage for admitted students is the end of next week so you probably have to wait till they see who is really signing up then

This seems reasonable. Does anyone have any metrics from previous years showing how much movement there typically is as well as when?

Definitely retake. 167 should make you safe at UT (C+F issues notwithstanding).

Those of you who got accepted recently from the WL......did you receive the e-mail from Dean Dillon asking for confirmation of your continued interest?

If so, then how long after that did you receive the decision?

BTW, congratulations! :)

Excellent question. I'm hoping we see another round of admits in the coming weeks because I can't wait past the end of the month.

I'm on the part time waitlist. Do any of you know the 25%/75%s for GPA/LSAT specifically for the part time applicants as I haven't been able to find this information?

to those who recently got in from the waitlist - have you received any info yet about scholarship money?

edit: or to anyone really who has info regarding scholarships, love to hear it!

Still on waiting list after a month and a half...my waitlist status hasn't been updated since the first week of May. I really wish there was some way of knowing how many people are going to get in from the waitlist. For those who got accepted off the waitlist...did you find out by email, phone, or on your status check??? any other details from those who got in off the waitlist would really help ... Thanks! :)

I'm bumping this thread back into existence to see if anyone out there has any info. It looks like my backup is going to be STCL and I'm going to ride out this part time waitlist to the bitter end. Anyone heard anything or been recently admitted? It appears UH doesn't go in batches but rather lets individuals in all throughout the summer. I think FT is a better waitlist than PT because this is the best option of a lot of the PT applicants whereas the FTers likely have other appealing options.

Hey incoming students!

I'm a 2L in the evening program, and I wanted to reach out to some of the incoming part-time students.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me: houstonelsa AT gmail DOT com

Check out our website for more information!

P.S. Probably better to reach out to me via email, as I don't get on TLS often.
