I went into review on 4/1/09 then again, it updated and said in review 4/20/09. Weird. I guess I was handed off to another reviewer. Hope that's a good sign.

I was accepted a couple weeks ago, but before I received my decision, it did that for me and several other people in the forum as well. I think it might just be the same person re-opening the file as they comb through the ones to which they want to give extra attention. I think its a good sign :-).

I hope so! I am really interested in their JD/LLM (health law) program.

Question for those of you from out of state attending U of H Law: After one year of residency in TX, do you then qualify for in-state tuition?

I think the only reliable sign any of us can use to predict admission at UH this year is a 161+ LSAT. Sad, but true.

I received the same update on my status checker. I really hope it is a good sign.

Well, if the 161 is true, then I'm so out. I had a 156. Could have done better and should have retaken (took on a whim with no prep and 9 years out of UG). But, I've been talking with a few of the Health Law prof's at U of H and they said they think with my softs in Health that I would be a uniquely qualified student at U of H as well as later as a Health Law atty. They said they'd pass our conversations on to the ad comm. I'm hoping they look at a file as a whole and not just numbers (at least in my case!!).

Good luck LawHorn.

Oh well
they have accepted some with LSATs below a 160 but very few, yes.

i'm not an out-of-state person, but i do know that you don't qualify for residency if you just move here for school. i think UVA is the only one who does that. good lucks!

I have applied to UofH PT. I have a 160 LSAT score and 3.45 GPA with a graduate degree (Classics) and 5 years work experience. I submitted my file on 2/14, it went complete on 3/13 and there it has stayed. I have read conflicting information...UofH talks about a rolling admission process but says PT applicants may not hear until July. Given I applied three months before the PT deadline, does anyone know what the chances are I will hear something within the next month? I got into South Texas but would much rather go to UofH.

Thanks for any information you can give me!

I applied part time on the same date, and I JUST went into review.

I got into south texas as well, and they gave me a scholarship. I visited both schools, and I was surprised at the reception I received at UH. I wasn't impressed with the school, the facilities, or the people working there- except for the actual admissions lady- she was relatively nice.

South texas on the other hand was much more impressive, the library, the court rooms, the location- and the fact that the court of appeals meets in the same building- I'm starting to wonder if I get into UH, which school to actually go to.

I went under review on 3/16, then it switched to under review 4/1, and now it reads under review 4/16.. Has anyone had this happen to them or know why it might be? It seems like they keep giving me a second and third look without waitlisting me.

Uh oh - mine was 'In review' on 04/01, then updated to "In review" on 04/20. Now, says "Decision rendered" 04/28.

Can't be good news, right? If accepted, would have said "congratulations".

Ah well - c'est la vie and completes my cycle. Looks like LSU here I come.

No it says decision rendered and you should get something in the mail. It doesn't say "Congratulations" on the status.

Thanks, Texasapp. I just spent the last 20 minutes reading through the previous 23 pages of posts to get some idea of the notification techniques of U of H. I see now there is NO pattern. I'm still really happy to get some definitive answer one way or the other!!!

Although I reaaaaaalllly hope it's a yes, we love you, come to Texas with your bad self. :mrgreen:

I'm also choosing between here and LSU, by the way. I did hear that some people got phone calls when it went "decision rendered". Others did not, however.

I never got a phone call; I received a Congratulatory Email before I even realized I had gone to Decision Rendered. But some say it has taken over a week to get the email after Decision Realized.

Awesome - the elements of suspense and surprise. Makes you appreciate it more if you get it, right? :wink:

Texas app - looks as though I may be seeing you next year, then. I'm in at LSU and already put in the seat deposit, but with Health law being my intended field, U of H may be a better fit.....if they'll have me! :!: :?:

Seriously? What are you waiting for?

Now there's a charge.
