U Texas Ding

Well, this was number two. I guess the texas school system has big love for me.

10 more to go; three reaches, four targets, three safeties.

Hey, I'm sorry. But hang in there; it's tough getting dings first, but you'll get in at one of your schools. Worst case scenario, that's what the safeties are for...

I got the big ding too.

3.92,163 (non-Texas resident)

I was hoping that they would at least wait a little longer, getting a ding this early is no fun.

Yeah, it kind of just slaps you in the face when you update the page.

So how long did it take for them to ding you? I just checked my page and it just says Current File Status: Your application is complete...received on nov 17th and is being considered for early decision.

I'd like to get my first ding out of the way...at least I assume that's what it'll be.

Hang in there, being a non-resident, you already have two strikes against you.

Wow!  I guess being a resident v. a non-resident really does make a big difference!  They claim that it doesn't, but considering that yall were rejected with numbers higher than several of the people that were deferred (according to LSNumbers) I am inclined to think that it obviously does matter.
