I applied in January and got the call in March so for those of you still waiting all hope isn't lost.

Just got the call. Legit shocked. Lsat =25, GPA about Median, applied in November. Does anyone know if they provide travel stipends to visit?

Hmm, generally it seems to be a boost for out-of-state students. But I don't think it'll hurt.


Yeah, I know it's mainly for OOS kids. I just feel like it might give my app that little extra nudge. I'm just worried about being a pest, you know?

Oh, you definitely won't be a pest. That's reserved for the kids calling in about app statuses. :lol:

I know there are people earlier in this thread who submitted unsolicited "Why Texas?" essays then got in. You should be fine.

Congrats! I do believe they do, but only for out of state, which sucks for people who live in El Paso or somewhere which may as well be another state!

Did your app status change to "under review"? I've heard some people say it doesn't I think but I wasn't sure

Yikes! I'll be coming from California- I'll email admissions and post what I hear about reimbursement/stipends.

My app status did not change until this morning after I got a congratulations email from admissions.

Normally, I look forward to the end of the day. Means I finally get off work. But now, it just means another day without hearing from UT. Had a dream I got admitted last night :(

I caught myself thinking on Friday afternoon as I was leaving work "Damn... that's two more days that I'm not gonna hear back from UT."

Submitted mid-Jan, so looks like I"ll have a brutal waiting period. Went to Texas for undergrad, love Austin, want to practice in Texas. UT is my #1 choice. I'll be crushed if they ding me </3

Submitted Dec. 6th, complete Dec. 7th, just got the call 30 min ago. I didn't submit a why Texas and I'm a reverse splitter K-JD from an SEC school. I am honestly SHOCKED I was admitted being as tight as they are with out of state admissions. I stopped checking my status checker because I automatically expected rejection.

Any idea how many more out-of-state slots there might be? I've been complete since mid-November and heard nothing since the Why Texas? request.

Just got a call from a 516 number. My heart almost stopped thinking it was a 512 and could potentially be UT.

I live in Austin and get calls from 512 numbers all the time. I die a little on the inside each time I answer & it's not UT. I'm sure the suspense will only get worse!
