Got the letter today, dated three days ago. The letter stated that since my residency is under question (I was in-state during undergrad at UT, but have been working in the Northeast since July), I'll be considered out-of-state until otherwise proven. I'm not concerned about that though, since the residency officer states I'll be considered a TX resident the moment I set foot on TX soil again, which will obviously be prior to the first day of class should I decide to go to UT. However, the letter doesn't state that my offer of admission is CONDITIONAL upon my establishing residency. I think that means I currently fit into the 20% out-of-state admits, which is pretty damn flattering.Unless one of the big boys (top 3 or 5) come calling, it's gonna be mighty tempting to spend another three years close to home (Houston) in one of most chill, laid-back, fun cities on the planet...and then there's the cheap student tickets to ncaa athletics :-)Texas! ................ Fight!
BTW, standard sized envelope, a little bit thicker than a single page letter, since there's six or seven sheets of paper total. No big package with brochures, etc.Oh, and one more thing...my application status page on UT still says what it did a month ago...file is complete and was processed Feb. 15th.So those of you that check your application status online for a decision, there's a strong chance you'll get a letter before anything happens online.
