Aside from the deposit, they also want you to upload a headshot photo. Is that standard or am I the only one who finds that odd?

Thanks! I've been worried for about the past week over how can I come back and work in Texas once I graduate, but this acceptance seals the deal and essentially ends my cycle. I just hope I don't have to pay sticker lol.

Dean Farnsworth wants a photo so he can learn your name in advance. He's a badass, anybody in this thread ending up at UT is making a fantastic decision.

Not op, but I visited back in October and I think it was supposed to be 30 minutes when I scheduled it, but for me the tour was like an hour and a half. I had a student do the tour and he showed us EVERYTHING and went into a lot of detail of why we should go to UT, and how it is living in Austin. I'm not sure if all the tours are that long. I went on a Friday, so there wasn't that many people there, so I guess that's why he was able to take us into different classrooms, parts of the library, and into the courtroom.

Will you still attend Texas if they do not give you a scholly?

I'm really considering it. I'm in-state so the tuition isn't super high, but 3 years of that with 3 years of COL makes it close to 150k. I had just accepted the fact I would be going to Maurer for only like 50k, and then I get accepted to UT a few days later. Now I'm back to square one lol. I know UT would be the best for me career wise, since I want to work in Texas, and it would open more doors for me if I wanted to do Biglaw or a clerkship, but is it worth 150k? I have no debt from UG, and I can live with my parents in Houston once I graduate for a year or two if I needed to, but still 150k is a lot of debt to carry, and it will only get bigger if I don't hit biglaw. I don't have any leverage really to negotiate with UT, unless Michigan accepts me, so i'm kind of in a rough spot.

Got the acceptance phone call Friday afternoon. How long does it usually take to hear about scholarship/how does Texas relay that information?

Did anyone else get in without a phone call or congratulatory e-mail? I just received an e-mail about my student ID which said I was a "future longhorn lawyer."

I think timeline is typically 2-4 weeks, and they will email you your offer.


Awesome thank you!

I went on a tour recently and was pleasantly surprised by how close-knit the law school seemed! I remember during undergrad my major was kinda fractured and I didn't really connect with a lot of people because the odds of you having the same class with anyone more than once were pretty low, I'm stoked that the law school doesn't seem like that.

Yup. Once you get the email saying your status checker has updated you can click a link on the status checker to pay the $200 deposit.

Also, congrats!
