Waitlisted at TEXAS c/o 2016

Postby JXander » Fri Mar 29, 2013 11:53 am

The WL pool doesn't seem too big this year, but I understand that UT has a history of pulling a lot of people off of it following the deposit deadline (4/15). Anyone planning on holding out for quite a while?

LSN Graph is here.

I'm hanging on! But I hear a lot of people don't find out until Julyish. Don't know if I can wait that long.

Oh, that sounds like a miserably long time.

Perhaps. But I attribute that to be the decrease in apps this year. I know they have to pull in 300+ people this fall, so I am optimistic.

Not certain. Does anyone know if it's considered inappropriate to ask how many people are on the WL each year?

(Anyone is welcome to PM for my #s)

I'm OOS and I'll be withdrawing. Hopefully it'll open up a spot for one of you!

I'm pretty cynical about my chances of getting in simply because of my LSAT score, but I want to know other people's thoughts on my stats. I am a Texas resident, 162 LSAT, 3.85 UGPA, and attended a random liberal arts college in new york city. I have good softs and good letters of rec.

Thanks in advance!

I really think you have a good shot!!! If you're willing to wait there's a great chance you'll get off the list. Plus, UT needs well rounded people...

Checking in!

LSN shows only 25 WLers... Hope that's a good sign :D

They are protecting that LSAT median more than the GPA median.

:-(

But on the bright side (if you are a Texan), if they accidentally dip below the 65% texas admits rule, then they have to get some of the Texans off the WL. :D

oh... didn't know UT's LSAT median was that high only two years ago :(

No WAY they are going back up to 169. They are fighting to keep that 167 by buying 168+s with larger than usual scholarships (but still not as generous as other schools similarly ranked are being this year, so I'm not sure it will work unless they start negotiating)

Virtually all the WL emails say that but with this year's historic decrease in apps, HOPEFULLY they will make a heavy use of WL.

I really would like clear stats on this because I keep hearing that it is a rare occasion when UT does not activate the WL.

For the 11-12 cycle, eleven people on the WL were pulled in, according to LSN. In 10-11, I counted two.

A lot of people don't post on LSN so I wouldn't make any inferences based off of LSN

True, but I think it is acceptable to make a few predictions gleaned from information that is available.

Does anyone know how we will know (if at all) when the WL is activated?

Got the waitlist email in early March. Will definitely be holding out for this. Anyone else go in for an interview?

Yeeep. I would venture to guess that most WLs did.
