You should get scholarship information soon via regular mail (if applicable). The way it looks right now, a 168-169 will get you $7,000 per year, 170 will get you $9,500 per year and 172+ will get you $12,000 per year. This is all on top of the in-state tuition rate, which you will be offered if you get a merit scholarship. Sorry this is confusing, but if you scroll back on this thread, it will make more sense.

Cool -- I will scroll back another day. Right now it's time for bed. With a 167, maybe I'm looking at full tuition anyway.

Evidently Texas is leading an anti-LSAT revolution this year. Being in the top 20 was just too stressful.

Ya this doesn't shock me. It appears Texas is heavily emphasizing GPA this cycle.

Just got an e-mail telling me they are holding me over to Regular Decision from EA. UGH.

167/3.74/Out-of-state.

Sadly no, like everyone's been saying, it looks like they're trying to shoot up the GPA ladder.

My GPA is 3.53 ad my LSAT is 161. I didn't get dinged and am being held over for the regular review from EA. I'm not a URM. The sub 3.6 theory doesn't apply to everyone. (I know I'm still a long shot but just thought I would point out that there are exceptions)

but, you are in state. totally different game. i think its safe to say that the sub 3.6 might be true for out of staters. pj, i got dinged too with ~.1 higher gpa, same lsat, so don't worry you're not alone! hopefully we'll get some acceptances soon:)

Thanks Alm - it's just a little nervewracking getting the first rejection

Took about a week and a half from the time I got my app received e-mail to when I got the status checker e-mail.

Does anyone know the stats for the current 1L class? I'm talking about GPA, LSAT medians and 25/75 cutoffs. I should know where to find this, but I don't.

Current class though...I assume JazzOne wants to see if there's been an upward trend in the last few years.
