IN! Got the call yesterday and promptly made myself sound like a genius. I--ah--ha! That's awesome! I mean, that's great news. I mean, thanks very much. Yes!
I imagine that's how roughly every one of those calls go, though.

Congrats! I always kinda wonder what might come out of my mouth with one of those calls. I bet they hear some pretty crazy stuff though

One of the best things about living abroad is not having to deal with these phone calls. I have absolutely no idea what I would say. Are they 10 second conversations? Do you just say "thanks, that's great news" and hang up? Sounds awkward. I'm glad UT talked to my mom instead of me :)

Last year I applied ED, but I was held over for RD. I decided to take the February LSAT in case I got waitlisted or something. About a week before the test, I stopped answering my phone or checking my mailbox so I could get into a mental zone for the test. Anyway, I retook the LSAT, and that night I started drinking pretty hard. Around midnight I got this email telling me how to log onto freshlaw. I was like, WTF? It turned out that my acceptance package had been in the mailbox for a week. So that's how I learned that I would be at UT this year.

Is it just me or has there been no activity with Texas for a long time now? They were turning decisions around very quickly early on. What happened?

I just walked by the admissions office, and it seemed fairly empty. The secretary was there, but I didn't see Dean Ingram or any adcomms. Maybe they're on vacation until classes start next week. Then again, it was around lunch time when I walked by.

Do you mean a scholarship you were awarded soon after being accepted or an offer you haven't received?

I haven't seen anything under the money tab indicating what scholarships one might have been given. I received one in the mail after I was accepted though.

Edit: If you're logged in using your id and you click on the "current students" page there is a ton of information. There is a "financial aid status" link but you have to do some stuff to see it (activate an e-fan, submit a fafsa, etc).

I appreciate your optimism :D

How do you think that translates to an Australian drummer living in Canada? lol
Is it true they limit out of staters?

Since it's a publicly funded school, they can't matriculate more than 35% out of staters. But they admit hundreds of out of staters, and I think you have a good shot.

I'm curious; what happens if more than 35% of the group that chooses to attend is out-of-state? Do they defer some of them?

The admissions staff has stated that this has never been a problem, and that they wouldn't defer anyone.

Texas let me in!! I've been complete since 11/3 and am anxiously awaiting. I expect a decision rather soon, but as I'm a URM with very borderline numbers, I think I may have to keep waiting. But please let me in!

Anyone else get a hold email today? It said:

"Upon initial review of your application, the Admissions Committee
has decided to hold your file for additional consideration with the
general applicant pool. Your status as a "hold" should not be viewed
as a denial, a deferral, or an invitation to the waitlist."

No, I haven't gotten that email nor do I want to!

I got that e-mail in mid November, sent in a LOCI and additional letter of reccomendation mid December and my status hasn't changed yet. Albeit, I feel fortunate that it wasn't an outright rejection since my LSAT is considerably lower than UT's bottom 25%.

Any word on when people should start hearing back from the office if they were held over from ED?

Also, I didn't send a LOCI, as some have suggested it to be irrelevant. Perhaps I will.

I sent one in along with another rec letter from a UT Alumna and Of Counsel at a biglaw firm. I know that probably won't do it for me, given the low LSAT, but at least it's worth a try. Hopefully Texas residency and high GPA will give me a small boost as well.
