In via phonecall today. Missed it, listened to a voicemail, jumped with glee, confused bystanders.

Went complete on 10/21, 168/3.9/in-state/UT for undergrad for those who want to know.

Looking forward to meeting you all!

Are they not sending out scholarships to residents?

Sorry. (Should have done this before.) Accepted with 166, 3.64, TX resident, and some (awesome?) softs. (I'm still really curious to see how much my softs mattered.)

I'm also a URM but also checked "white bread" on my application. Not entirely sure if they considered that or not.

EDIT: (I'm forgetful.)

Submitted for Early Action
Completed: 26 October
Decision: 10 November

Just got an e-mail telling me they are holding me over to Regular Decision from EA. I'm actually surprised I didn't get outright dinged since people with far superior numbers are getting rejected. I'm 161/3.53. I know I still don't have much of a shot but I'm happy to still be in the game.

I can't figure out if their holding me over means they can't decide whether to admit me, or if it's a timing thing (i.e. they've already filled up their ED spots. My application wasn't complete with them until about 10/27). Thoughts anyone? Should I be worried? Hopefully the other top schools don't do this to me as well...


In-state or out-of-state?


3.5/169 In-state

I'm a little worried. This whole holding over to RD thing scares me.

That would make sense I suppose.

Congrats, but don't hold your breath for scholarship money with those numbers. Others have been held over into the RD pool or even flat out rejected with similar. It does seem like UT is fishing for high GPAs this year though. At least this early in the cycle.

Wow. Sorry to hear. It seems like they are toughing up on their numbers this year.

Yeah, I looked at law school numbers and last cycle everyone at the 168 range with a 3.45+ was accepted. *sigh* While not a top choice, I would have loved to go to UT and considered it to be a pretty much spot on target.

My numbers are close to yours, and while optimistic about UT in the beginning, I've pretty much resigned myself to the fact that I will probably get dinged or WL'ed. Don't worry, there are plenty of other schools out there for us! :D

In yesterday via phone call with:

167 LSAT and 3.82 GPA from small state school.
Weak softs.
Texas resident, sent app the Monday after the Sept. LSAT scores arrived.
Mexican father and white mother (I checked both boxes on app).

I guess UT wants to boost their GPA median this cycle considering the ding of 168/3.4+ people.

P.S. How high up should I apply? I have no idea what, if any, boost I get from being half Mexican. Fee waiver's came from Duke, Penn, UoV, and Chicago ( I was surprised by that one). Got an email from Harvard (the latino/hispanic email thing) inviting me to apply. Would I have any chance there whatsoever? I can't imagine the bump would be that much. Thanks

Looks like Texas is making a push for a higher ranking (at least from this initial small sample)

This is definitely the case. Improving the student body is a big part of the current push that the administration is conducting. One of the reasons the class size has been decreased, aside from increasing $ spent/student and lessening the "big school" stigma, has been to tighten up the numbers. My class has 379 students; just a few years ago the class size was about 415-425.

I don't see a downside to applying to those schools.

Edit: Congrats, btw. And I like your name


Thanks, I guess the peace of mind from knowing I tried with be worth the few bucks I would spend on the apps.

And the name is a combo of my name, Phil, my major, Philosophy, and the philosoraptor meme.

I got the phone call today too! I was running at the gym though, so it went to voice mail.

Congrats everyone!

Congratulations to those already accepted. I got the call last week. I read the last few pages of this thread, but didn't see anyone with a scholarship offer. What kinds of applicants have received cash money already?
