Did anyone else receive a snail mail invitation to a reception hosted by Dean Sager and the Texas Law Review?  Not sure if this is part of the regular ASW event schedule...



Is it scheduled during the ASW (29-30th)?  I didn't get one, wondering if that's because I told them I won't be able to make ASW.
Accepted: Michigan($$), Northwestern($$$), Vanderbilt($$$), UCLA($$), UT($$$), WUSTL($$$), UIUC($$$$), Notre Dame($$),

Attending: TEXAS !!!

thats really helpful, thanks! did you ask about your app in particular and did they say the status?

I tried to get them to check my app status, and they evaded it.  Odd how some schools will do this and others won't.

I received that invite from the Dean as well...what day was the RSVP due?  I don't know if it is a part of the ASW events, but it's not on the schedule that is posted on their website.

We need to RSVP by 3/23.  I'll be at the UT Alumni reception in Los Angeles today, so I'll try and ask Dean Sager for some more info.

I'm certainly asking if he's ever read LSD.  And I'll put in a good word for y'all.  Anyone else going to be at the LA reception tonight?

Since I have not heard anything either (Out of State, 167, 3.5) I called.  The person I spoke with indicated a few things which I found interesting, and may help others.

1) When they mail the decision, they wait until 5 days after to update the status checker.  So, in essence, she is indicating that checking the status checker is worthless once it goes to complete.

2) They are attempting to make ALL decisions by April 15th.  This was different from GW, for example, who told me they may take up to 6 weeks to decide on currently undecided applicants.

3) No travel reimbursement for Admitted student weekend, so it makes it less likely I (or someone else from out-of-state) will book a last-minute fare to go visit, since it will be March 29-30.

Oh well.  I gotta say, the longer they wait, the more likely I go somewhere else.

i don't know if this means you're not really interested in texas anymore, but if you are...
i had almost identical stats as you (out-of-state as well) and they let me in -- early notification.  so based on numbers you're clearly qualified :)

Thanks.  Good to hear.  The thing is, I really want to go to the Admitted Students thing.  So, notification after April 1st means I probably will need to make a decision without visiting and, therefore, make a decision for Vanderbilt or Tulane + $$ much more likely than accepting Texas sight unseen.

I'm a Texan and I don't even know that STCL is.

Boss - any news yet from Texas? I remember we had some sort of positive interaction a while back (no idea what it involved) so I have been silently pulling for you ever since.
