If you don't mind my asking...what were your numbers and when did you send in your application?
I'm starting to think that the reason UT has not requested my LSDAS report is because they are going to deny me outright or something.
to ensure my anonymity, i'm not divulging my numbers. adcoms read this board. i don't think i've said anything disparaging, but i just prefer to remain anon. However, i don't think your numbers have anything whatsoever to do with you not having your LSDAS report requested yet.
My own experience in terms of when I submitted my app combined with others and when I know they submitted their apps combined with when I and they had their respective LSDAS reports requested - all of that proves to me that the UT admissions process is not on a first come first served basis. Seriously. With UT, when you applied has little to do with when your LSDAS report is requested. I joked in another post about this, but i'm serious. I think they put the apps in a pile somewhere and in so doing the order the apps were received is lost. In fact, if you think about how you pile up paper and later access it, I REALLY do think they may actually have a quasi FILO (first-in-last-out) method of dealing w/ apps.
Don't sweat it too much. I waited much longer than you from submission to LSDAS report request. It'll come eventually. But it does seem you missed ED.
Some people who applied at the VERY END of October had their LSDAS report request within just a day or two. Others who applied in sept did not have their LSDAS report requested until nov.
I'm not being negative on UT at all (see that adcoms, i love yall and your crazy-cool admin process). UT has a lot of apps to process and I feel for them. Just understand - UT admissions is a drunken bull-ride and you've just got to learn to go w/ the flow. As Monica Ingram asks, just have patience. But, at the same time, I think it helps you keep your sanity if you understand the seeming chaos behind their process and thus don't expect orderly things like first-come-first-served service.
