I doubt it, but I'm not sure. When I talked to Janet Hatcher, she gave me the impression that every spare dollar is used for scholarship money or on their students. Can't hurt to ask, though.


I swear those 3 ladies in the admissions office are the nicest I've ever ran into at a college office. Janet, Carolyn, and Phyllis. I was in the room with them when the news on Dooley broke and we were all over Volquest and the Knoxville Sentinel's website trying to get confirmation.

Unfortunately, they don't. I emailed to ask them about the logistics on planning during Preview Day, and they did offer a reduced rate at a nearby hotel (Four Points?).

Checked all day and it was still sitting at under review 2/4, but checked now and it changed to 3/17.....I'm not the one that's pessimistic, but it may seem they keep on reveiwing it holding out until they either waitlist you or reject you :/ or who knows, maybe there finally looking at it again, or last option, they updated the review status because they just sent out a letter in the mail today about the rejections or waitlist :/

yeah...from what I've read, the review date always changes right before they make a decision. Then it disappears and then the decision is made. If you dont mind, what are your numbers? do you think that you are pretty competitive for UTK?

I had a review update from 1/4/10 to 3/17/10. Hopefully I hear good news soon!

I'm dying to know why people's dates are changing .... mine isn't. I got that "are you still interested" e-mail last week. Anyone else in my boat?

From what I've seen on TLS, it seems pretty normal. Some people have been in review for many months. You could call if you are concerned, but it seems to have happened to many people. (Some in review since October and hadn't heard anything in Jan/Feb.)

I was in review since October, did NOT receive the "are you interested" email, and my status date just changed. I really hope this is not a bad sign.

Reassuring to hear that I'm not going through this alone. Complete since 1/27/10 and haven't heard a peep from UTennessee. Stalking status checker and LSN numbers isn't helping me. I'm 162/3.76, so I thought I had a good shot, but they seem to be rejecting and waitlisting arbitrarily. Worried. New insight, anyone?


I've been under review since 12/8 and not a peep until today when my status date changed...wonder what this means since I did not get the email about still being interested.


No email for me either. I haven't heard anything. My status date changed also to 3/17/2010, but status is still "Review". Guess that means they've made decisions? Fingers crossed. Good luck.

Top left of my status checker now says : "A status update letter has been mailed." The status field has disappeared.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but so far this cycle this has meant either a WL or rejection.

Agreed! I was supposed to withdraw this week but I still had some questions and talking to them made me decide to wait a little longer.

ok so now I'm really confused. My review date changed from 11-04 to 3-17 the other day. Then I get an e-mail from UTK today asking me if I'm still interested in them. What does this mean???

A couple of us got that e-mail earlier in the week.

for anyone who had their status changed to 3/17, I guess they're making decisions. I just got a wake up call to say I'm in. I hope you all get yours soon.

Waiting list. Better than a rejection! Still surprised how some people with numbers not quite as good as mine got admitted, some people with better numbers got denied, and I got waitlisted. (My involvement is pretty solid, and I never read my recs but I assume they're good). Good luck to everyone!

How did you find out?? Did you status date change recently?

Yep, just looked, got on the waitinglist. All the stories about people getting sometimes 2 days before class starts and actually switching schools? That's insane....
