Tell us what's important to you
Probably gonna ride UGA’s waitlist for a few months just to see what happens
But yeah UTK is the likely choice
my shit has said decision pending for a week now... what should i do
im strongly thinking about UTK now but will still wait for any WashU movement
Is there a discord for UTK admits?
i may make one later
yeah i'll do it when i get home from work
still setting up
bruhh my status got updated to pending decision
what is this shit😂
i already got the admit
they're gonna admit you even harder
you have no idea
has anyone talk to admin about when they start looking at waitlist candidates??
lmao they moved me back to pending decision
you must have paid the deposit
thats why
thats what they told me
anyone talk to admin about WL candidates?
Withdrew today, good luck to those WLed!
has anyone seen any waitlist movement yet? I know in the initial waitlist email they said they weren't looking at it until after May 1st, I just didn't know how soon after that it would be
^^^ Following
Anyone else hearing back?
anyone got any update on where their class size is at ?
For those applying this fall, is it rational to think my LSAT is exceptional for UTK? I have only taken the test once, and got a 165. This is an alright score, but it's 2 points above UTK's 75th percentile. Moreover, almost all applicants with my stat profile have been accepted. Since UTK is my goal school, retaking the LSAT seems like it will have diminishing returns or even hurt me if I do worse. I am a first gen student, so I am just looking for insight here.
If you have a 165 and a good application, you'll more than likely get in with very good scholarship money. If you think you can do better, take it again, but you'd be doing that for the sake of more money or applying to other schools.
Are you the same SlippinJimmy that got accepted into UTK with a 3.07 and a 164? If so, my stats are slightly better but not notably so. Your acceptance dot on the graph inspired me; do you have any advice for a student applying from a similar position?
