Congrats on Texas! You really seem to be beating the numbers game. Who wrote your rec letters?

Thanks! I've been pretty happy/surprised by a few outcomes as well. I actually had four different LORs. Two from professors I've kept in touch with even since graduating college almost nine years ago. I also had two former coworkers write recommendations as well. Mixed the recommendations up depending on the school.

Congrats on being accepted to the University of Texas at Austin! for the video interview, was it with Kira Talent Online platform by any chance? I just got an email from UT asking to do a video interview with this online organization.

Thanks! Yes, the video interview was through Kira Talent. It was pretty straightforward. Three questions about why law school, my favorite college course, and one other that I seem to be drawing a blank on. They give you ample chances to practice different (but related) questions to get used to the format.
