You're referring to Dean Ingram. That's Dean Monica Ingram! :shock:

Dean is a women? Or atleast the assistant dean who makes the calls is.

Oh. My. God.

OH. MY. GOD.

I did not think I would be posting something to this thread... UT was my far-reach w/ my LSAT of 158/3.93!!!! Not URM, but non-traditional(I guess), and out of state(international). I applied ED but deferred to RD. Letter dated 1/20/10.
It's a miracle............. It's my first acceptance from this cycle too!! I saw a big package in my mailbox, thought it was one of those invitations from others law schools, and then I saw "Welcome -- UT Austin." My fingers were literally shivering when I opened the package still in doubt, and there was the letter starting with "Congratulations!" I froze for like 5 mins in front of the elevator and could not move...

I am going to TEXAS!!!!!!!!!! YAYYYYYYYYYY!!!!! :D Greatest surprise ever!

Wish you guys good luck with the rest of your cycle! Hope is always there for someone who tries their best..

How quickly does UT traditionally let its applicants know? If I applied early January and just got me UT EID on January 23rd, how long of a wait am I looking at?

If you receive scholarships from UT they will send you a letter in the next 2 weeks, and they usually tell you to expect this letter if you qualify. Besides that, I would say fill out the FAFSA so you can see what loans/grants you will receive.

Congrats again and to everyone else recently accepted.

I couldn't find one on facebook and I wasn't brave enough to make one myself. But I know that I'll be there in the fall.

In as well! I woke up on the 20th (my birthday) to two emails from Texas. The first contained a link which had a birthday cake and the second said Congrats, you're in. Wasn't expecting this since I was held over from ED.

I was held over way back in early November. As they made it clear that it was not a deferral or waitlist I have not sent in a LOCI. I will do this soon as it looks like people who were held over from ED are getting in.

Should I email them or snail mail them, both? I have a variety of reasons for choosing Texas. I hope I get in!

You might want to read the thread a little more carefully. ED holdovers are getting in now.

Duly noted (I acknowledged that in my post!). I suppose I meant to ask: Should I have written a LOCI? I know with schools like Michigan, they softly discourage sending in additional materials. With Texas - it was as if they were trying to make it sound like this is just a hold - it is not a deferral, it is not a waitlist - we'll automatically review your application after New Years. That sort of thing.

Anyway, congratulations to those who have gotten in!
