In case you missed it in the accepted email, admitted students can request a free copy of the dean’s book “the legal analyst”

Got mine today

I completed on 11/6 and my status date has changed to 1/10, however there's still no movement.

I guess a ding is on the way

I heard scholly info was to be anywhere from first week in Jan to Jan 19.
So here's to hoping.... it should come via email I would think but not sure.

Is that only for the first wave? Or for everyone accepted up to that date? I got in on the 4th.

Also, has anyone heard anything of travel stipends? I read somewhere that they are merit based...but does anyone know amounts?

We all had super similar questions:
1) Favorite course in college
2) Why Law
3) Why Texas (written)

Was that it? I feel like I'm missing one?

EDIT: What are you passionate about? That's the one I'm missing.

So has anybody gotten in yet without interviewing? It seems like every admitted person has interviewed, but I'm hoping to be proved wrong.

I got my acceptance call this week and they mentioned at the end that scholarship emails should be out in about two weeks.

I've lurked on TLS for a while and never really posted, but I thought I'd give some hope to anyone who was experiencing radio silence from Texas! I'm OOS and applied in mid/late October. I didn't hear anything until this past Sunday when I finally got the interview request. I did the interview the next day and received the call today that I'm in! I felt pretty good about the interview, but definitely didn't expect to get a response this soon after! Really excited about this one since I totally thought from the silence that I was getting dinged. Congrats to everyone who's in and good luck to everyone still waiting!

Got my call this afternoon!

Also, to people who still have to do their interview, mine was the first Kira interview that I did and it went TERRIBLY. Like maybe the worst and most awkward interview of my life. So don’t stress too much if you feel like yours isn’t going well!

Thanks! I submitted 11/26, got the interview request on 11/27, interviewed 12/11. Nothing on my status checker ever changed.

Also, in state, no why Texas.

I got an email confirming UT received my app on 1/4 but still haven't gotten an email regarding a status checker. Is this delay typical or should I send an email their way?

Are you supposed to fill out the 'Get a UT EID' form on the status checker? Is it not like other schools where they give you a temporary password in an email?

They will send you a login in with the status checker. It took them about a week to send me mine.

Just got dinged.

It's ok, probably wasn't going there anyway.

Sorry to hear that. Did your email not come in the middle of the night?

When did you go complete? Also, do you mind sharing your stats?
