Texas is (obviously) my top choice and I just don’t know what to expect or how to take this. I’ve only applied to other Texas schools (and UW) so I’m not familiar with interviews or anything like that. I’m trying to take it as a good sign but I’m also really nervous.


I'm in state and interviewed in December and saw other Texans receive the request as well so it's not unusual. It's a super simple interview with basic questions (think about why law, why UT, etc.). Don't worry about it and good luck!


Awesome, thanks for the help!! About how long does it usually take to hear back after the interview? I plan on getting it done this week and was just wondering if there's a typical response time after that stage.

Just did the interview.

The questions were

what was my favorite class or favorite professor in college

What other interest are you passionate about

When did you decide to become a lawyer and why Law

Written: What are some of your personal strengths and how do you take advantage of them.

Per the poll in this thread, at least two people have been rejected after interviewing. It does seem like a solid majority of those who interview are admitted, though.

While the aura of invincibility is gone, the odds still look pretty favorable.

I wonder why those two were rejected. I'm just weird because I botched my first question lol

I am OOS and got it last week. I was also in the first week of decisions for OOS RD so it's probably chronological.

App complete 1/11, got an interview request 1/17 and completed it yesterday. The waiting game begins... Didn't think I did amazing but also didn't totally bomb it (writing section...didn't finish sentence before it cut me off :( ).

Is it a good sign to be invited to interview so quickly? Anybody have any clue on when I might expect to hear something??

I was invited the day after I applied but didn't get in for a month or so--they appear to be sending acceptances in the order in which the apps are received (I've only seen two exceptions). So I'd suggest watching LSN and here and see when other folks who applied in late Dec/early Jan. get in--you'll probably be soon after them if you're in on their first round of review.

Other hand, I was in the first week for OOS RD decisions (I think, week of 12/17), and haven't heard anything either positive or negative.

From what I saw either on here or on Reddit, can't remember which, they do send emails saying people got $0, so no notification is not a denial by any means. Apparently some of the emails said they're waiting a while to make full scholarship decisions, which really got my hopes up and which I'm kind of upset I know.

As we head towards the February scholarship reconsideration, which schools would you guys think UT considers peers for scholarship comparison?

Direct peers, probably Vandy, Georgetown, UCLA, and perhaps Cornell. WashU I would imagine probably has some pull but maybe not as much as the direct peers. Any school higher than Cornell, especially the T6, Duke and UVA, I imagine have a ton of pull.

Has anybody who was held from ED to RD in mid-December been subsequently rejected?

It took me two weeks to get a status checker :? I still remembered my login from undergrad ha (graduated a few years ago) and everytime I checked it said my app had been received but not yet processed - so seems like they just take awhile to process once submitted.
