No, be patient. You'll get the worthless status checker eventually. Then if you are admitted you'll get called and then a few days/weeks/months/years/millenia later your status checker will reflect that.

I sent mine in the same day as you and just got the checker 2 days ago. I would wait until Monday.

Haha, my hopes are that they are working to let me know about $$$ :P But good luck! Hopefully it doesn't take too long. I applied 11/30 and had a decision call 12/17.

Congrats Attax and Good luck Austinbound!


Thanks! I know for those of us accepted they want a LOCI eventually, I'd definitely recommend sending one in if you're on the WL as well!


Care to expand on this?

I'm fairly certain it was Texas. In the admissions packet (which I don't have on me right now) they explained they wanted you to sign a letter that they'll send to us in like May or June so that way they know we will be attending. I guess calling it a LOCI is wrong.

The thing you're referring to is called a Letter of Intent.

Ah okay, my apologies to anyone who I confused. LOI! NOT LOCI. But I still think LOCI would help if on the WL. All my other schools haven't said anything about a Letter of Intent.

Edit: For anyone I may have mislead, I have had and do currently have all the current info that you will get via the admittance packet over at the C/O 2017 page:

I had a question about writing a LOCI

I was waitlisted by email, and in the email they said reply within two weeks if you wish to still be considered (which I obviously do).

I was thinking of writing a short response to the email, basically saying "yes I am still interested" and a few reasons why and then sending a more complete LOCI by snail mail once I have it prepared. Does that seem excessive? Should I just put what would essentially be my LOCI in the response email?

One email can do everything you want to do. "Thank you for your email. In direct reply to your inquiry, I do still wish to be considered for admission at University of Texas School of Law. Attached please find a letter more fully detailing my continued desire to attend UT." Not necessarily verbatim... I'm sure there's a better way of saying it, but you get the point.
