Have you heard of people getting rejected after interview?
@Pistachio999: From what I've read, the interview is a great sign. The majority of self reporting people who interview get an A, but "there's no such thing as a sure thing"
I interviewed on Feb 22 and got A exactly two weeks later. From my research, it seems like an interview is often times a prelude to an offer. But of course sometimes it's just a tool to get to know you better
interview and wl today:(
@VariousAmusingRag: I'm sorry to hear that. When did you interview? I haven't heard back yet since I did mine, so I'm trying to gauge where I might be.
Any in-state people get an interview for the full scholarships yet?
Does anyone know the range of times UT calls so I can stop getting so anxious the *whole* afternoon?
I just got a call like 5 min ago
so they're still calling
I got no message
My application is ED
For people who got their scholly, how long did it take after u submitted the form ?
How does UT contact you about requesting an interview? Via email or phone call?
It's an email.
@DefiantPlantBison: a week
do they ever change anything in their portal?

Really hard to believe schools like UT do a "holistic" process, when I see people w/170+ get accepted who applied months later than literal scores of other candidates who are below 170, and of the users on here, only about 10-20 applicants below 170 LSAT accepted
[] ReverseSplitterBigHitter
Hard to believe that someone (like myself, for example) is so much less an attractive candidate b/c of one point.
[] ReverseSplitterBigHitter
Nothing worse than seeing the people who applied right before me and right after me get accepted and I hear absolutely nada (at more than a couple schools) grrr...maybe I should head over to Big Mad
