"Thank you for your continued interest in the University of Houston Law Center and for your patience with our waitlist process. I know you are anxious to hear from us so that you can finalize your plans for the fall. Our second commitment for our deposited students is due at the end of this week. Once we have confirmed with these students, we will begin assessing the class in early July ....."
Did anyone get a similar e-mail? The entire content of the e-mail suggest that they are trying to 'weed' out the non-active waitlisters from the pack.
I was also waitlisted at UHLC/PT program as of last week. Although I have not received that same email you posted, I am told by the admissions committee that they will begin assessing candidates from their wait-list in early July. The thing is, I was also admitted into the PT program at MSU (Michigan State) with a 50% scholarship last week as well.
I am already dead-set on attending UHLC if I can get in (even without sholarship $$)....as they are a higher ranked program than MSU in generic rankings as well as within IP Law, which is what I wanna study. Not to mention the fact that I attended MSU for 6 years as an UG and for an MBA. In addition, the economy here in Michigan sucks way worse than anyplace else in America, and from what I've gathered, UHLC places well regionally as well as in Texas.
On the money side, UHLC is a public school with $13K/yr tution (in-state). Factoring in living expenses at about $10-15K/yr, I would only be looking at about $70K in debt as opposed to the $100K debt if I went to MSU (even with the 50% scholarship).
What do you think?
Err... I don't know where you pulled $13K a year tuition from.
Full-time (30 hours) Tuition & Fees
Texas Residents - $18,477 Non-Residents - $ 25,977
Part-time (26 hours) Tuition & Fees
Texas Residents - $ 17,960 Non-Residents - $ 24,486
That was for 2008-2009 (so you can probably expect that to go up for 2009-2010) according to http://www.law.uh.edu/admissions/
