Scholarship information comes separate from the acceptance packet. If it's been over 4 weeks, you may not have received a scholarship and will need to use their matching program.

I live here, so staying all. I'd be down to go out Friday if we wanted a group together, but can't stay out too late since I have early plans Saturday.

Anything and everything. I can't make it down to visit until the first week of April, so the more pictures the better.

URM at median and 75th? UT must be a tough one to crack. That would have you on lock with $$ at a lot of schools.

Totally forgot you were doing this! These will be nice to have, I took some back in December, but the campus was dead (post-UG finals and end of LS finals).

EDIT: Copypasta from C/O2017 thread. Has anyone else uploaded their picture but your freshlaw still says "picture not uploaded"?

Yep, it was kind of embarrassing to take pics in front of all the students. I was an obvious 0L standing out :P

It felt good to be on campus after a long time... Really hope I get in :lol:

Appreciate the Friday night invite, but looks like I'll be heading out of Austin following the events on Friday afternoon. I got burned on the Hilton Garden Inn discounted rate (missed the March 7th deadline) and ended up lining up one night at the Omni downtown.

Still not opposed to Thursday night drinks following the tours and whatnot if we can get a group together..

I'm in for this too. I have a friend at the LS, I'll email him regarding bar review if y'all would be interested in crashing that and chilling with some current students.

Had a feeling it was coming up. They've been refinishing the wood (doors and other areas) at the school for the past few days.

Thursday and friday! Prepare for the 0Ls :D

Any bar review on Thursday or Friday? If so, would current students be opposed to us crashing it?

There will almost certainly be bar review on Thursday but they generally announce it on the Tuesday before, so I'll post here tomorrow if/when I get an email. I'm not sure how many 1Ls will be out that night due to our brief being due 4 days after, but I'm sure everyone would welcome 0Ls at bar review.

Mine still says "Student picture has not been received", but when I click on "Submit your photo", the picture I uploaded shows up as my current profile pic. So maybe it'll just take a while to update that they've received it.

Thanks. That is the exact same thing that I have, just glad to know I'm not alone in these photo endeavors.

SBA Email:

I hope everyone had a wonderful spring break! We're heading to Kung Fu this week for bar review!

Where: 510 Rio Grande St
When: Thursday March 20, 10p-2a
Specials: $3 Wells, $3 Domestics, $3 Pickle Shots

I'd definitely recommend going to bar review because at the admitted students events you'll mostly be interacting with students handpicked by admissions to make UT look awesome. You'll probably get a better feel for what it's really like here by talking to people at bar review. Sadly I'll be working on my brief and can't make it though.

Will also be going to bar review! If anyone wants to meetup at ASW, I'll be the super tall guy with a backpack on Thursday who is coming straight from class. Feel free to PM me a link to your facebook if you'd like to add me so we can at least know what everyone looks like (I'm also on the admitted students fb page.
