I'm planning to record it tonight, but am debating what to wear, where to record, and whether or not answering all the practice questions is worth it. I went through the Kira practice run over and over again until the questions started repeating themselves lol. Are the questions different in the actual interview different?

I'm a guy so I wore a suit jacket and tie. They don't ask you to stand up so you don't need to wear dress pants, I just wore shorts. I recorded mine in my apartment bedroom. The questions in the actual interview are different from the ones in the practice. There are three verbal responses and then one 15 minute writing response.


I just did mine with the same attire. Glad I had already done a Why Texas.


Thanks y'all!! Going to record it now in a library study room haha. I'm planning to wear a nice neutral top and a gray wool blazer, which isn't as formal as a suit but tbh I look like a weirdo in a suit so I think this will be better. Hope y'all did well! :)

Just completed by interview on 12/1. Does anyone have any idea on when the first wave of acceptances will be?

RD acceptances are almost certainly after Christmas unfortunately, but I’ll hold out to hope they come early!

So what are we thinking about those of us that haven't received an interview request? I can't imagine it's a great sign.

Oh, I stand corrected! I heard from an adcom that they’ll be after Christmas. Well, I’ll give good vibes to them coming out this week!

Submitted my app a week ago or so. Retook the LSAT in Dec, so probably won't be reviewed until early Jan at earliest.

(As an OU fan from birth, applying to UT was all kinds of shameful lol)

The following note wasn't on my status checker this morning, but is now: "Please note that some applicants may be asked to complete an online Admissions Interview. If you are invited for an interview, you will receive an email from the third-party vendor providing this service, Kira Talent."

Maybe (MAYBE?!?!) that means I'm going to get an interview request? Has anybody else had this note added to their status checker?

Ok so evidently it was added to everybody's status checker. I'm still taking this as a good sign though, because I was worried that they were through sending out interview requests to ED candidates.

Commence refreshing email every three minutes.

RD Candidate here, interview was requested during the 11/17 interview wave for in-staters. I also just got the alert to my status checker so I wouldn't think to much into it, probably was placed on all accounts.
