See, this is what I thought, which is why I was asking. I thought it odd that they would require you to place a deposit on a seat that isn't yours.

Yeah, I am going to be sending a LOCI this week. Probably sit in a class next week too. Thanks for the info! It's really heartbreaking to get WL'd, but I'm going to be doing everything I can to get in.

IN! Just got the call 11:09am Texas time! 171 lsat, 3.8 gpa. texas resident! sending positive vibes the rest of y'alls way!

Edit: FYI my status checker never changed. In fact, I got the call an hour ago and it still doesn't reflect the change- just says complete or whatever. So idk how reliable UT's checker is

It took mine about a week post-acceptance to update to "accepted" or "decision made." I don't actually remember, but it is worthless.

I plan on attending the one on Friday, but I may not be able to take off. If not, I'm going down for the Texas spring game and plan on checking the campus out then.

My status checker shows for some reason that UT does not have an application on file for me. Anybody know anything about this?

I would definitely call them immediately! How do you have credentials to check if they did not receive an application in the first place?

The process goes: check in application-> check whether complete-> if so issue username and pw-> put in que for review......

You can get into the status checker before creds are issued. I did this. And I got the same screen. When I went complete on Monday (I think?) I got an email saying I was complete, go to status checker, etc., and my login was X, but they couldn't display my password because I had already registered one. So, if you haven't gone complete yet, don't worry. If you were complete and now it says this, you should call.

I do not remember the exact phrasing but I do recall the moment when I found the page and thought to myself, "okay they have it now and it will be reviewed soon."

Any idea when those who applied around the deadline might see a decision?

I actually really like San Antonio, but like Austin, I'm not hedging my bets for it.

Thanks!

Also on the topic of SA, I think it's a good place for pi work, especially for the military.
