I just received an email giving me the opportunity to submit a "why texas statement" given my non resident status/"given that you are a very strong applicant".

Did anybody else get this? any idea if this is good or bad?

With a basis of absolutely no experience, my gut reaction is that they are trying to decide whether to YP you or not.

I received it as well. I can only guess that it's a positive sign, but that's a gut reaction.

For me, it's great, because I'm a non resident with family in Austin and I have more reasons to want to attend than what might have shown up on my application, so this is a chance to really express my reasons and desire to go to UT.

So from what I've read from others it seems that a lot of ppl got scholarship offers with their acceptance letter. If you didn't get an offer, does it mean you aren't likely to get one from them later on?

Does anyone know if the acceptance is a letter or a package?

It's a large envelope, with "Welcome to UT School of Law" on the outside.

I'm a little late, but in via phone call. Yipeeeeeee!


Super fast turnaround for a non-early/special application (my first acceptance was Duke but that was priority track).

I don't know if the different envelopes "mean" anything, or if they're just working with a couple of different styles, but mine said "Inside: All thing Austin". The contents were:

1) Dean Ingram letter, with Non-Resident Tuition Exemption and scholarship information
2) Dean Ellison letter, with "what to do next" information (transcripts, LOI, enrollment deposit, etc)
3) Four-page excerpt from the Fall 2013 Alumni magazine
4) Brochure for the Judicial Clerkship Program
5) Copy of the "Torch" newsletter
6) The "Greater Austin Newcomer Guide" (this is what makes the packet thick - it's a 200-page magazine.)

Hmm, that's interesting. I got 2-5, but I don't believe I got 1 or 6. Might give them a call to ask about that.

The contents might vary depending on whether you were RD or ED, whether you're in-state or out-of-state, or any number of other factors. I really have no idea, and am just trying to put a data point out there. Also, I imagine all of the information in the Newcomer Guide is on their website if you don't want to wait for a paper version.

I am in-state, this is very possible. Likely will call in and check anyway.

I did not get 1 or 6 either, but I am out-of-state (RD)...hmm. Any news on whether this means anything or if it is just random?
