I am going to the one on April 25. What hotels are recommended? I'm looking into the Hilton on the campus. And is it better to fly into Hobby or Bush airports?

The airports are both pretty close to the campus, 20-30 min. Bush is a large airport and Hobby is smaller. I don't prefer one airport over another, but generally would fly in/out of the one where I could find the cheapest ticket. I live just outside of Houston, so I haven't stayed in many hotels - there are several around the campus (maybe Hotwire?).

While Bush is larger and will have more flights Hobby is much closer to campus, so if there's a convenient and direct flight into Hobby I'd recommend that.

I can't think of any hotels that I personally would want to stay at in the immediate surrounding area so the Hilton on campus might be the best option.

Just a heads up, we got a newsletter update a while ago about how they are packaging scholarships in a new way. The categories are very defined value-wise. This may make negotiating more difficult this year, but I have no idea how it will actually play out in practice.

I actually got my scholarship email before I knew I was accepted. I was really confused for a few minutes because the email didn't even mention that I had been accepted. The acceptance packet showed up almost two weeks later.

Hmm, kind of wondering about my status now. I was complete 1/7 if I remember right and others with later completion dates have been accepted already. I feel like my stats are strong enough to be close to autoadmit but not so strong as to be yield protected. LSN has my odds as 100%, which I know there aren't any guarantees but still... I'm wondering if they held my app for the February LSAT score? But status checker shows an under review date of 1/25. Oh well, not gonna sweat it, that's how it goes with law school admissions sometimes I suppose.

I wouldn't worry about it too much; chances are they're just considering the entire applicant pool. I think I heard back relatively quickly because I have really strong Houston ties (I'm in Houston for undergrad, my family is here, I wrote a why-UH saying I would want to stay here in the future). I've been waiting on UT for what feels like ages though, so nothing is completely predictable.

I'm in the same boat. Complete on 1/6 or 1/7 not sure which one. Also, my status moved to under review 1/25. I'm becoming curious about my status as well.

I also got 8k, while most other schools have been 20 to 25k per year. Definitely interesting.

I just got my scholarship email with a full tuition offer!

Since I'm a Texas resident I obviously had my heart set on UT, but this makes it much harder to choose.
