I'll be a 3L and the status checker will say the same thing it always has.

The status page does change. And they'll send you an email to that effect: "...now that you are a future Longhorn lawyer, your online status page will display features available only to admitted students"

Sorry to those dinged. Best of luck on your other apps.

Data:
25<GPA<50
75<LSAT
Out of state, no Why Texas

Moral:
No news isn't bad news


Congrats!

To me, no news by now = waitlisted. I have yet to decide if that's a good or bad thing..

I was accepted Wednesday and got that email yesterday. I figured there was a correlation considering it was the first email I had gotten from them in months.

Same for me, accepted by phone call Wednesday and got the email Thursday. First noise from UT since the original confirmation email.

Got dinged earlier this morning. Why Tex Law requested bef Christmas but didn't submit one because I have never been to Texas and the only reason I could think of was its proximity to "T14". What I dont understand tho is why bother sending out fee waivers to OOS applicants if they never intended to accept many.

Drives their acceptance rate down.

I went complete 11/22, but I have never been asked for a Why Texas. Do you think I should just send them one or is it late/odd since they haven't asked for one??

I haven't been asked for a Why Texas either and went complete around the same time.
I'm not bothering with writing one unless they ask lol. But I'm also not super attached to the idea of going to UT...

It's one of my top choices and it is a reach, especially with their focus on LSAT.

If you're asked to write a Why Texas and comply, are the chances of you getting admitted generally pretty good?

OOS, Median LSAT, above 75th GPA

I think it's pretty good if you write the statement, not writing it most likely hurts you.

So, yesterday I emailed admissions a PDF of my Why Texas essay (even though they never asked for one LOLOL). They never replied, though. Is that weird/do you think that means they won't consider the extra document?

FYI: Complete 11/22 and haven't heard anything since.

Even when they did request one, it took them 3-4 weeks for me to get an email acknowledging it.

I've been complete since 11/22 too, but I'm a Tex res. Looking at mylsn there hasn't been that many people who went complete after 11/20 and got a decision. I only see 4 people, with 3 of them being rejections.

Edit: Nvm I see 6 with 4 of them being rejections.

If you were asked to submit a Why Texas, did you just write it in the body of the email or attach as a PDF?

You should always say something in the body of the email as well! Many don't and you'll stand out/ it may come across as rude to just send it with no thanks or anything!:)
