Admitted about a week or so ago via email. Scholarship email today. Haven't received an admit packet yet though.

congrats to all admits ! r y'all in state or what? i figured the sloppiness of them letting me hanging is because i'm OOS but that is ridiculous..

applied 11/14 and still under review. SERIOUSLY HOUSTON? this is getting ugly.

167 and above average GPA. maybe got YP-ed?

Accepted OOS with 3.5 and 159.

Can anyone comment on campus life at Houston? Is the student body any less miserable/competitive than elsewhere?

Yeah, I'm not sure what to think about your situation. I have a 173 LSAT and above median GPA and they didn't YP me (but I am in-state). They may be prioritizing responding to in-state apps, but unless you have been rejected or waitlisted, I wouldn't call it YP. I think they are expecting you to get into a way better school and just withdraw (so they don't have to make a decision), but if you stick it out and show interest they will let you in. Probably with a large scholarship as well.

Haven't heard a thing. Submitted in November. >75th LSAT but <25th GPA.

Anecdotal, but an adcomm told me they accepted a 3.9 149 last cycle. Seems like we should all be okay.

Is this total or per year?


Probably per year given how Houston worded things.

i don't think there is any reason for them to reject me...not reasonable ones...

maybe i should send a LOCI or something like that?
