"If you are receiving this email it means that the Committee remains strongly interested in your candidacy" if you say so Mathiew
i think everyone who is still on the WL got it but not sure
Suppose the assumption would be that they rejected the candidates off the WL they were sure they did not want to provide an offer to, so everyone remaining is someone they are interested in
@WillIamNot: if you got into your top choice off the WL why are you staying on other WLs? lol
You could get $$$$ off a WL, which may sway someone from their top choice
@SwiftSnake7: cause i'm lazy and slow at withdrawing
hi yall: UT Austin, instate, first-gen, hispanic 3.7 GPA 170 LSAT, chanceme?
chances are good
any movement off the waitlist???
some people were released I believe but I haven't seen any A movement. its been months... I hope we hear soon
So, not released is good lol
Do we think their class is just full already...?
Well, they had their last deposit due already. They should know if it is full or not and should be offering spots or releasing all the remaining WLs.
But they’re not doing either…?
for those on the WL who got the Email today, what did it say? I didn't get it
That they’ve met their enrollment goals but will still extend a few offers over the next several weeks
So, that wasn't a letter that went to ALL people still on the WL?
Is anyone else still waiting? Did anyone else receive a letter yesterday?
Anybody hit submit yet?
Got an interview invite
Good luck!!
Completed the interview already, think I did good!
IDK How long it takes for them to get back but I want to know!
@onetimesignin: I dont want to read too much into the tea leaves, but last year the people on similar Sent/UR/II timeframes as yours heard back 10/28 at the earliest, the year prior it was as early as 10/4, and the year before that 10/14. So realistically I would expect anywhere from 1-4 weeks for the first decisions to roll out.
I'm so excited! Where was your undergraduate if you don't mind me asking? I was UW, I think it helps having a far off institution and now being in state
I agree, that's probably a bonus for your app. As for me, IA, so im OOS.
Regardless, let's get in together!
