Thanks! I logged in to my status checker after I got the call but it hasn't changed. I also listened to the message that she left on my voicemail about five times just to make sure that I really got in. I'm a TX resident so hopefully I'll get the packet tomorrow or Monday.

3.52/170. Like I said I'm a TX resident, but I didn't go do my undergrad in Texas so I don't know if that helped. I was really (pleasantly) surprised by the fast turn around because I just got my status checker on Wednesday.

11/12: Complete
11/20: "Application held for review" email

Obviously, it's not a final decision, but it is a decision.

I think about the TLS hopefuls every morning. My walk to the library takes me past the admissions office. It doesn't look as intimidating once you face the professors!

How soon is too soon to send a LOCI to UT? I just received the "application held for review" email on Friday (11/12). Will it be okay/advisable to email a LOCI over the weekend?

Jazz, just out of curiosity, how did you get that much scholly $? What kind of stats do you typically need? I'm looking for excuses to make UT among my top choices. :mrgreen:

I got my 'hold for additional consideration' e-mail this morning after applying early decision to UT. Anyone have insight as to what that means about my application? The e-mail read:

"Your status as a "hold" should not be viewed as a denial, a deferral, or an invitation to the waitlist. The Law School received approximately 1,500 files for Early Decision, and while the Admissions Committee was able to make final decisions on the majority of the files, there are some, yours included, that we would like to consider with the general applicant pool before we make a final decision."

That second sentence seems to imply being held for consideration is sort of a 'Wait List Light.' ("Don't take anything from this, but we wanted to let you know it was really easy to make a decision about most everyone's applications except for you.") Do you think that is an accurate assessment of what held for consideration means, or I am just paranoid?

I'm grateful I wasn't denied, but still, just curious what this might mean for my chances.

They outright denied some pretty strong applicants.. Basically all they are telling you is that you are still 'under consideration'. I think you have to look at this as a good thing.

Surely since ED is non-binding at Texas the ED pool is actually some of the very strongest applicants.

Good luck.

I honestly wasn't expecting such a big sholarship. I wasn't even sure I would get in. UT is the only school I applied to, so I threw the works at them. After my "hold" notification, I sent an addendum, and I sent a LOCI at some point too. My numbers don't seem to justify my scholly, but I have strong softs, so I believe UT is serious about evaluating the whole application.

If you need another reason to like UT, I'll give you a testimonial. My professors are fucking awesome; the student body is fun and friendly; and there is no pretentious atmoshpere at UT (it feels like a state good). My classmates are some of the hardest working bunch I've ever met.

I applied on the last day of ED last year (11/1), and I was held over in mid December.

Just received the "application held for regular decision review" email. I'm actually pretty happy with that, as I know getting accepted has been really tough this cycle. Here's my info for those of you keeping track:


168/3.46
Out of state

Applied: 10/30
Status Checker: 11/11
Decision email: 11/21


Best of luck to those still waiting!!

Just received my status checker e-mail. I applied on 11/4. These folks must be pretty backed up - it says that my application was processed yesterday.

It takes a while for them to process it for a status checker. They have to give you an ID# and to do that it goes through an automated system.

Don't worry texasgirl, this Texas guy was just as concerned as you are and applied ED on 11/2 at 12:39 AM. I'm being considered for ED and I got my status checker. I'm sure you will too!

Once again, though, UT is really a pipe dream here. If I wasn't in-state, WE, and URM, I wouldn't bother...but I really hope I get in.
