hey will this be your first year at Tech law? or are you a current student?

Hi thanks for your comments...Well, the thing about my other options...I only applied to 6 law schools. I have been accepted into three and now Im on a waiting list for UT. I was originally only going to apply to five law schools in texas but Florida Coastal sent me a free application in the mail so i was like, "what the heck."

I am still waiting to hear from Baylor and U of Houston, which I believe are in the top 100 law schools in the nation according to a list i saw recently on this forum.

Between Tech and STCL..I have decided to stick with Tech. Ya'll have helped me make that decision.

About my scores...I will admit..they are not that great, I will say this: I scored in the 150s. My GPA is a 3.78. I am currently an English graduate student.I am 21 years old and I am half hispanic, half Anglo (but i identify myself as Hispanic, and I am fluent in both English and Spanish) I have a great amount of leadership experience..and I am a URM. I just found out what that mean :P Anywho...I am going to do my best to help my chances of getting off that waiting list and getting into UT.

Thanks so much! I think I will work on those letters ASAP..I don't want to seem desperate though...or obnoxious. I think I'll send the first letter in late May..think that would be ok? I wonder what I should mention in these letters of interest that I have not already mentioned in my application/resume/personal statement...

Thank you to everyone for their help. I think I will be leaning towards Tech. THIS JUST IN:
I just received an email from UT admission stating that I have been offered a place on their waiting list...this means that I may not find out for sure until the summer. Is being on the waiting list a good thing? I mean, do they offer everyone who has been declined a spot on that list? About how many people get offers to be on the list? What do yall think my chances are of getting in...I mean how many people would SERIOUSLY decline or choose not to go to UT!? Oh well....still waiting on Baylor and U of Houston...:(

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Offered Wait List at U Texas

I accepted the offer to be placed on their Fall 2007 waiting list. This means I may have to wait until the summer to find out for sure. Is being on the waiting list a good thing? Is everyone offered a spot on this list? Any advice?

LOL..i think I spoke too soon. I just received an email from UT regarding my status. I have been offered a waiting list spot. I really do not know what that means. All it told me was that if people do not place their deposit or choose not to attend UT after all, I will be considered for Fall 2007. But it stated that I may have to wait until August to find out whether I will be in or not for sure. SO what does this all mean? Is waiting list good? Is everyone offered a spot on the waiting list? SOMEONE HELP!!!

I did my research on Tech and STCL (cause they are in Texas, and I planned to only apply to Texas schools) BUT I received one of those free applications in the mail from Florida Coastal, sent it in, and got word that I was accepted and would be receiving a scholarship...I know very little about that school, but since they are offering me money, I guess it is something to consider. As far as Tech and STCL are concerned..I just want to get other people's opinions because I am struggling between locations. My family is going through a tough time right now, and I want to stay as close to them as possible (STCL-4 hours away) but I have visited Tech's law school and fell in love with their faculty and students (12 hours away  :( ) So now I am having a hard time deciding what to do...sacrifice family matters for my personal benefit or get an education at a school that I am not as familiar with? Get me..I researched as much as possible.

Hey guys I am waiting to hear from UT...and I want to know what my chances are of getting in...If you got dinged from there let me know...and if you want, please provide LSAT, GPA, and whether youre in or out of state...I'm an in-stater with a high GPA and average LSAT...I would love to hear from ya'll!

havent heard from them yet...but i doubt ill get it  :-[

40 more thing.. I got accepted to Florida Coastal as well, and they are offering me $15,000 a year....of course I would still be paying out-of-state tuition though...what tier of school is that? is it better than either tech or STCL?
