DEFERRED at Texas
« on: November 09, 2005, 01:21:26 AM »
I posted this under the mail call thread as well, but I was deferred at UT-Austin today via email.  Mention of 1500 early applicants, 80% of whom will receive a final decision, 20% of whom will be deferred.  165/3.76 in a hard science from a top 5 ugrad, so the deferral is not a surprise.  Not a TX resident.

Anybody else?

Sent 9/26. Complete 10/11. So about a month on the turnaround -- not bad.

Count me in.  Another non Texan.  I sure hope I get the decision before mid April as UT is my number 1 choice at the moment.

Eh, it would be my guess that adcomms look at your #s more favorably than mine.  2 points on LSAT >>>> 0.2 points on GPA.  So I wouldn't say you should expect a DING, but who knows...

My theory is that they defer everyone, then do rejections. Anyone?
