Haha. About that... We have multiple summers. Just FYI. There's Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer, Hell Summer, and Summer 2.

Probably renting a house in Crestview/Brentwood for SX. Bought the "close to light rail" line in the description.

I consider it more to be a winter, before summer, summer, and after summer designations myself :)

Man the traffic is terrible today. Went to campus today for something. Ended up sitting on the bus for like an hour instead of the usual 20 mins. I did have the chance to talk to a really nice young couple from France though :D

You might notice that most of our old cars aren't rusting from the bottom since we almost never use salt on the roads :P

Living in Texas just to go to school usually isn't enough. You'd need to marry someone who is a resident, own a business or property there, and/or work for a year (and student jobs don't count). You can find more information here.

No. BTW, under the regs, those things listed above are merely factors and are not themselves enough to establish domicile. THECB rules include this extra tidbit when considering those factors: "An individual whose initial purpose for moving to Texas is to attend an institution of higher education as a full-time student will be presumed not to have the required intent to make Texas his or her domicile; however, the presumption may be overruled by clear and convincing evidence."

Do we think there will be much movement this week? I haven't seen a ton of new admits in the last few days, but I'm hopeful I'll hear soon..

Texas looks like it's more a trickle decision school. When did you go complete/processed on the status checker?

Submitted 2/12; complete on status checker 2/26. I know it hasn't been very long, but I have seen some of the other apps from around or just before the same time slowly getting answers (per LSN).

It looks like out of all the requests, only one from 1/28 to present has been accepted. So really it could be another week or two before we hear anything. Admissions might be a tad understaffed since it is spring break here at UT.

Makes sense. Thanks!
The university I work at does not close/slow down at any of the business offices during spring break. It's a real bummer.

I was accepted in December and got a travel stipend 2-3 weeks later via email.

Just now getting around to booking my hotel for the March 20/21 ASW. You guys staying both Thursday and Friday night? I was contemplating saving a few shekels and heading out of town after the social event Friday afternoon, but the lure of partying in Austin on Friday night is strong...
