Deferred
« on: November 28, 2006, 08:23:19 AM »
Just got the email from UT deferring my application to the regular applicant pool. Takes the wind out of me.

3.89,165

oh goodness. i'm so sorry! I imagine i'll be joining you in the deferred (or worse) category soon then. when did you all apply/have your report requested?

Again, i'm really sorry. i hope the regular pool is kinder. I can't believe they'd reject a 3.89 with a 165 in state. I wonder if there actually is institutional bias at UT (despite what they write)

Looking at LSN, it seems that everyone deferred either has GPA/LSAT below the median (which is 3.6/166) or is a yield protect deferral (no ties to the state, both #s above 75%).

Maybe because of the new dean and the fact that UT median and 25% each rose a point last year, UT is trying to up their stats again and deferring everyone who is not above their median on both GPA and LSAT?  I would think once they run out of auto-admits they'll start taking splitters.

Agree with that. Sit tight for a bit and you'll probably be fine. They are probably just trying to accept well above their 50-75%s for now. As the months pass, you'll probably get an acceptance. AT THE SAME TIME, do what demingh said and look over your application to make sure you didn't make any egregious errors.

My application went complete in early October. I have not heard a word since. I really have no chance of getting in with my numbers though. I was not deferred, and certainly not accepted, so my rejection should be here soon enough.
In: Texas Tech ($), Tulsa ($$$); South Texas ($); Baylor; SMU
Waitlist: Oklahoma; Houston; Denver
Rejection: Texas; Georgetown; Harvard; Colorado; Northwestern; ASU;
