I'm a Tex res too and got low balled hard with the initial offer and negotiation. My LSAT is low, but URMs from previous cycles with similar numbers or lower and same URM as me got a lot more money
I'm also a resident, and I was holding out hope that Texas would pull through for me because it seems like a great school! Unfortunately, now that I have my updated offer back, I'm also sorely disappointed and, yes, salty.
I'm reluctant to withdraw because I loved UT, but I'm also feeling burned by the initial and continued low-ball and don't think I can make this one work financially. Good luck to everyone else!

I agree. I do not think this is a good strategy to woo students.
