Yes. Mine was $9,500/yr. plus the NRTE.

My question is whether the NRTE is a strict amount, or actually gives us full in-state tuition or just the amount written. If non-resident tuition goes up significantly and the NRTE is just a set amount, it's not quite as beneficial.

It seems to me like it will give you In-state tuition whatever that rate is.

Congrats everyone. This is making me feel like I'll really be attending law school next semester, despite all the economy and all the pessimism surrounding it.

12K/yr plus the NRTE, 84K total. UT is making a persuasive argument...

thanks :) i'm trying not to feel discouraged but it's hard, since this was my first decision and a bad way to start off the cycle....i was wondering: is it generally harder to get into UT out of state? if so by how much?

UT has to limit it's out of state graduates (not percentage admitted but only 35% can matriculate yearly) to 35% so it will obviously have somewhat of an effect. Sorry to hear! I've also applied and am in state but my LSAT isn't near your level. Good luck w/ the rest of your cycle.

it seems that each additional LSAT point is garnering an extra 7500 or so over three years.
more reason why im considering a late season retake.
my 169 got me "only" 69k

When did you go complete? I have 168/3.9 and went complete on 10/21. I live 200 yards away from the law school, this is driving me nuts!

Rejected via snail mail. Was really hoping it was a WL so I had the satisfaction of withdrawing, but alas, it was not to be.

Rejected as well. Non-resident, but I did my undergrad there.

I did my undergrad at UT, applied before a lot of people getting acceptances with numbers identical to mine. Would in-state and going there for UG hurt me that much?
