This is credited. I'm also a splitter, and sent a Why Texas, then got the interview request soon after. Still pending, but that's a better place to be than rejected.


Are you ED or RD?


RD.


I'm ED, applied in early October, and have heard nothing. I was under the impression that submitting a Why Texas on top of applying ED was redundant, but I'm starting to reconsider. Maybe I should submit one anyways...

I'm just so confused about this radio silence and its driving me insane.



I'm same situation. I feel sick about this... I thought my numbers were pretty par the course for the school?


WHAT DO WE DO


I've been baking bread a lot and crying. The mileage you get out of those activities may vary. Like, regarding Why Texas, I'm pussyfooting around on whether to send one in or not. Like if they wanted one, they'd ask, right? Like assuming I never got into this forum obsession and all the advice online, I wouldn't have known that a Why Texas essay is even a thing. It's unreasonable for them to expect something like that unprompted and gathered from internet advice, right? And being ED, it's no duh we wanna go to Texas. This is agonizing.

What makes you say that?

I just did not deliver coherent answers lol, I think it was my worst interview so far (though I have hated all the Kira ones).

Saaame. My written response was basically: "I am good at things and also I like law and also I did school and also I am writing good. Thank you!"

Just some really spectacular work tbh

Same here. Did fine on the practice Qs and then the real thing was absolute trash. Couldn't even remember the name of my favorite class in college :roll:

Edit: I'm OOS and didn't get a Why Texas questions so just submitted one to try to balance my horrid video performance. Hope they didn't already watch and reject...

I did. It probably isn't totally necessary, but it can't hurt.

Applied RD, OOS, above 75th LSAT and in between 25th and 50th GPA. No Why Texas and no interview request. Went complete 11/3.

I am going to visit UT this Friday, and was wondering if that is enough to show interest in the school or if I should submit an unsolicited Why Texas before RD decisions start rolling out next week. Any advice is appreciated

My two cents.. A well written Why Texas essay won't hurt you in any way. In this respect, I'd think of the essay as a no downside/unknown upside option. If submitting a Why Texas could help you with whoever is reviewing your app, it is probably worth your consideration.

For those who have heard back, did your status checker change at all? Whether it was before or after your decision was communicated to you?

UT status checker doesn't update until decision is sent (I believe, need more sources to verify).

Haven't gotten an email, but I saw on my status checker: 'Application pending review with Regular Decision pool'

Out of state, 3.5, 166 went complete Oct 26th.

Interesting... My status checker only says "Your Texas Law application file is complete and ready for review as long as we have received your CAS report"...

Mine didn't update last year until I got in. In fact, it didn't update until like a week after I got in. I kept thinking they made a mistake in letting me in (still do tbh)

I'm sure they're waiting till 3 AM to send the email, since that seems to be their modus operandi.
