Does UT send out an email that they received your application? It's the only school I haven't gotten an email acknowledgement. I only applied because of the Texas resident fee waiver, so an acceptance would be a miracle.

Has anyone ever done a guided tour? I'm UT grad in Austin so visiting unguided is just a matter of driving 5 min to campus. Is there anything special of the guided tour?

I did it - I liked it but it was my first time to Austin. Helps you get a feel for the size of everything, and you can ask your guide questions.

It is a worthless status checker.

FWIW, they do have to assign you an EID and be sure you don't previously have one, etc. I know it seems quite trivial, but as someone who has worked on that side at UT it can be quite convoluted of a process.

It has varied. Some haven't heard back yet, some heard in 2 weeks. I submitted 11/30, admitted in 2 weeks, but am also in state.

Not sure what it means. I'd probably do what it requests though.

I'd be patient. The turn around time seems to be a good bit longer for OOS applicants, and those with LSATs below 167 this cycle. On LSN there have only been 2 admittances for non-URMs below 167.

The rest of your post doesn't really apply to me but I'm feeling okay because of the bolded. I'm just waiting for the Why Texas request at this point.

Yeah, be prepared for a "Why Texas?" if you've not gotten it yet. And I completely flip flopped and misread as GPA>>>75th and 25>LSAT>50. IN that case you SHOULD expect an admittance but the OOS still seems to require some patience unless you have strong and obvious ties to Texas.

It's still early. I'm OOS (169/4.0), submitted 12/5 (No Why Texas) and just got accepted 1/28. Scholarship info turn around was really fast after the acceptance though which I appreciate :)

Congrats on your acceptance! And scholarship info should be available within 4 weeks for all who are accepted (although yours must have been super fast, good on them!)

Waitlisted this morning via email. stats in profile. RD, went complete in September. So, yeah, it has been, and will continue to be, a very long wait.

Thanks! I was shocked at how fast it was, and almost missed the envelope about it, thinking it had to just be another general letter from Texas!
