After I was admitted, I went to the three student FB pages and requested to join; I didn't receive any "invites" per se. Admins added me a few days later.


Could you provide links?

PM'd as well. There are at least three FB groups - the "Class of 2017", "Longhorn+" (for students with spouses/families), and "UT Law Housing", for people looking for a place to live, matching owners with renters, etc.

Just got dinged this morning via email (8:47ET). A bit surprising...median LSAT and GPA above median/just below 75th. Strong softs, leadership, LOR, and non-URM. Already have a T14 acceptance. Being out of state definitely hurt. Aw, well..

Best of luck to everyone in this topic!

That sucks. I am learning that it is extremely difficult to predict this stuff and not to take it personally. Hope you get into a school you are happy with.

Thanks for the support! To all those curious, I went complete 10/17 and didn't hear anything up until the ding email.

Did anyone write a "Why Texas?" And if you did, did you send it directly to the school, or somewhere on the LSAC application ?

I didn't, but I think living in Austin and being a UT undergrad made a strong case for my "Why Texas?" in itself.

just got dinged this morning as well.

close to the median gpa, 25% percentile LSAT, CHYP education, URM. I'm also not sure if I got viewed as a resident or not…

Good luck to everyone else!

I live in Philly and have never been to Austin in my life lol. I don't know of things are very straightforward in this app process anymore.

Yeah, seeing LSN still shocked I was lucky to be admitted. If you come down for ASW (hoping you all get in!) we should do a TLS meetup!

Just got a request to submit a Why UT essay to add to my application, "in light of my non-resident status." Anyone else get this?

I didn't get it, but from my activity in the thread it definitely has been going out to a lot of OOS people.

Seems like being in-state is a pretty huge deal in light of some of the dings and acceptances.

FWIW I'm out of state and accepted straight off. I may be the exception though, not the rule.

They had to know they were letting me in. They wanted to be sure you got to meet me :P

But you have really good numbers, so I wasn't surprised to hear you got in.

I was accepted last Wednesday, but they said they mailed my packet Monday (status checker later updated to show I was actually admitted on Monday), and got the packet on Friday of that week.
