Maybe what the other school liked UT didn’t? I doubt it’s Yp or I just wouldn’t have gotten in. It’s just weird especially given i am in state. Wondering if anyone hasn’t insight


Maybe not. They really push that, best value school, thing pretty hard. It's possible they want to try and convince people of that at a lower scholarship amount before giving out more?

Tuition usually. It looks like I've got the same as you. Kind of disappointed given my numbers, but I don't know if myLSN info might be inflated comparing in-state/out-of-state candidates.


When were you two admitted?

About a week ago. For what it's worth, 169/4.0/non-URM. Also, I suspect they're giving significantly less money to in-state applicants.

Received $0, after being told by the person that called me letting me know I was in told me “I should be getting a nice scholarship.” Very salty and not sure what to do.

Hold out hope with me that more money will be awarded tomorrow?

I got an email letting me know that I have not been awarded scholarship money at this time. Unsure why they would tell me I’m getting a scholarship, then renege on that statement. I’m all for benefit of the doubt (and rightfully so people make honest mistakes), but if I’m trusting a school with my future I think being outright honest isn’t a bad policy.

Do you mind sharing your stats? I'm at medians and getting a little worried as UT was my top pick....
But not at full boat.

If nothing on the status checker, is it safe to assume nothing?

The scholarship committee and the admissions committee are separate entities. It’s a virtual certainty that the person you spoke to was speaking in good faith, although they probably should have made the subjectivity of the statement more clear, and I understand your frustration.

Oh for sure, I know they didn’t have any malice in their intent. Just a little unprofessional is all.

It looks like the email also mentioned I'm being considered for a full tuition endowment. So that's exciting! Should have waited for the email :-p

I got 0 as well. I assume you're in-state like me? Speaking to admissions people about the scholarships, though, I got the sense that they see in-state kids as already receiving a 60k scholarship. It's honestly a fair outlook since UT is pretty much the only elite school that has an in-state tuition that's drastically lower than out-of-state. Still, I was hoping to at least get the 30k that the ED acceptances got..

I'm OOS and nothing posted yet for me. Do you mind sharing your stats? In-State is at least a nice discount
compared to most.

I got in one week ago and nothing at the bottom of status checker. Is it safe to assume I was admitted too recently for scholarship info yet? OOS, RD

It seems most, but not all, who got scholly notification yesterday were in state. Hopefully a second wave coming for OOS.

If I'm OOS, will I get In state tuition after my first year?

I don’t believe it’s quite that simple. However, I believe that UT gives quite a few admitted OOS students waivers that allow them to pay only in-state tuition.

Scholarship email today, 8k/year + in-state tuition. Not all that disappointed but it doesn't compete with my Mich offer :/
