Is there an acceptance voicemail waiting for me, or are they just toying with my emotions here?

Same thing happened to me. I got the "now that your a future longhorn lawyer..." email sometime in the next week. Congrats.

I think something similar happened to a few other people on this feed! They got admitted Students Facebook group invite and then later they were officially admitted. Congrats! :)

Hey y'all. Can I get some advice on how to go about sending an unsolicited "Why Texas?"? UT is quickly becoming one of my top schools and I want to make sure they know how interested I am.

Has there been any kind of general timeline between submitting a requested "Why Texas?" essay and receiving a decision?

Not sure about general but as a data point, they gave me 2 weeks from the receipt of the email to submit a "Why Texas?" and even though I submitted it the very next day, I was not admitted until 2 days after the deadline.

Did anyone else receive a message from President Fenves saying "welcome back"? My little wishful thinking heart is hoping I was accidentally put on accepted students lists before my call and my acceptance call will come later, but it seems more like a clerical error.

Hi all I was accepted last week and I was just wondering if anyone knows when I should expect to hear about scholarships?

Did they e-mail you or invite you to an admitted students/no $$ FB group?

No $$ email and admitted students facebook group were separate emails.

Getting so antsy. Texas is my top and I submitted a Why Texas (unsolicited) on 01/08 and they confirmed that they received it two days later. I went complete 11/22 and I know they basically decide in order they are received. Is anyone still waiting on a decision with a similar timeline as me?

I went complete on the same day I think. I think we will see acceptances for people who applied around the same time we did either later this week or next week.

I applied ED. Submitted my app at the beginning of September, received an "Application Received" email about a month later, and then an email saying that my app was being transferred to the regular decision pool on December 2nd. My status checker says, "Application pending review with Regular Decision pool."
