If you moved to Texas earlier this year (before the semester started) and you're not in school, you should qualify (at least as I understand the rules), especially if you had some other reason to move here. But at the same time, yours will be a closer case and may take more time. Also, the standard of proof for residence is clear and convincing.

I've lived in Texas all but one year of my life. That one year occurred fifteen years prior to my applications to law schools (during which time I had lived, worked, attended public universities as a resident, married (a state professional licensee), started a business, and bought a house, all in Texas -- all of which is acceptable evidence of residency). Still, straightforward answers about where I graduated from high school confused the heck out of UH and led to (1) delays in processing my application and (2) a generous offer of in-state tuition as a pot sweetener once I was accepted (several weeks after my residency had been confirmed).


Haha that's crazy. Yeah I moved here early this year and bought a house, which is my primary residence, so I know I should qualify, but they are definitely taking their sweet time in processing my status. It's a shame because UT is one of my top choices and I'd like some finality early in this cycle without it being a whole drawn out affair.


I'm really kicking myself regarding residency. I was born and raised in Texas, graduated high school and undergrad there, and was a Texas resident when I joined the Navy. I could have kept TX residency throughout my career no matter where I was stationed. But about fifteen years ago, I switched my residency to Virginia so my wife could get in-state tuition here (this was back before the law changed to allow spouses to automatically pay in-state tuition in whatever state the service member is stationed). If I'm accepted to UT, I'll still pay in-state because of the GI Bill, but in the meantime, that doesn't get me around the 35% out-of-state maximum admission rule.

No offense to our two drive-by posters in this thread, but has anyone heard of any *other* acceptances (or rejections) anywhere else? I know that LSN only represents a fraction of applicants, but there haven't been any decisions for UT reported this cycle.

I was creeping on the #utlawschool and #utlaw hashtags on Instagram and I know two people were accepted.

Thanks! I've been seriously over-obsessing on LSN, TLS, UT website, and other ways to see who's been accepted... I JUST WANT IN SO BADLY! :D

Well I probably won't find out earlier than April. I'm retaking in February and hopefully that'll definitely get me in! :D

There are only a few (less than 5) people on Facebook so far, so I'm not surprised there haven't been many reports...

3.5/171, out of state and non-URM. I was early decision.

Good luck everyone!

In! via RD. Found out via status checker.

Had a missed call yesterday from a 512 number, but no voicemail. Should've guessed.

Congrats! Hopefully this is the start of a wave of pre-Thanksgiving acceptances. Would you mind posting roughly where you were relative to their 25/50/75th numbers?
