When did you submit?

I'm about to submit mine now. Really need a good bump to consider going since I'm essentially looking at sticker price right now at in-state tuition.

Still under review as well. My guess is deposit deadline will be extended a week or 2 to give those that get accepted now time to decide/hear about $cholly. I also think there'll be a lot of movement with people withdrawing before/after the 7th, but who knows lol...

I am still under review... I already submitted a solicited Why Texas essay, but I wonder why I have not heard back for a week.

Thats the $1,000,000 $100,000 question


Submitted my renegotiation recently w/ my leverage coming from a few offers, but most notably from my huge WUSTL scholly. I feel like they probably see a lot of similar renegotiation requests- they're similarly ranked schools, and WUSTL is very generous. Will update you when I have a response.


Any news? - I'm about to do mine.

Updated poll, probably last update from me this cycle, unless someone wants/ needs something specific. If you do just hit me up. Congrats to all admitted / good luck to everyone waiting it out.

For anybody in admission reading these forms: The UT scholarship thing is really annoying and a large turn off when considering the school. I really like UT, but you could please not do this?

Thank you.

Just got in via phone call! So excited!!

Stats are 167, GPA non-reportable (international, superior), international work experience and post-graduate degrees. Application submitted end of February; received request to submit "Why Texas" essay (I'm out of state) in late March. Got email this morning confirming receipt of my essay and that I would "hear soon" regarding my application. In six hours later via phone call. Scholarship info (if applicable) in the mail within 2 weeks, though that I take it is a standard line and does not reflect everyone's experience in the thread here.

Hey, I never worry about coming off as tacky. ;-) In all seriousness though, I didn't ask, they just told me.

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.

Well darn. My solicited Why Texas that I sent in a few days ago also got a response this morning that just said that it will be added to my file. No positive word of a decision soon or a call granting me admission. I guess I wasn't too persuasive in my essay... :oops:

Congrats though!


Yea, I was in the same situation. She just mentioned that they are just putting it into my file for further consideration. I guess my essay sort of sucked. I thought I was really sincere. Anyway, I have not heard back despite having submitted the Why Texas essay for more than a week. Congrats to all!

Congrats :!: I am hoping for some kind of movement in the next week. I am tired of waiting on Texas. Vandy finally responded yesterday with a Hold and UVA is still ghosting me. Just want the cycle to end

Thanks! I'm probably going to call my cycle over and pick my school in the next week so I'm excited
