Yea, I got an email letting me know they'd received it on the day I put for "complete". I assume it's complete though all they said was that they received it. Good luck!

I applied for both spring and fall quarters. I have only received a decision for the spring, which was a very nice surprise indeed. Also, I got the same thing from UT. I expect the rejection sometime in May. I perceive they have a policy of not rejecting any applicants until applications are in for regular decision.

  • thanks :)
  • Wednesday, November 21 2007 at 09:27 AM

best of luck to you also!! we have similar numbers, and are applying to three of the same schools, so i will cross my fingers for us!! what are your top choices?

Good luck to you too...i have a feeling it's just delaying the inevitable but at least it wasn't a flat out rejection!

Was the deferral viewable online, or did they mail you a letter?

Thanks for the info. I put my app. in awhile ago and I'm just waiting for the rejection letter... any day now... haha. I'm up in the air on my first choice. Let's see who's willing to take me on board first. Good luck!

They sent me a letter. And my status checker didn't change to decision until after I already had my rejection. Hope you have better luck with them than I did...

I got a simple letter in the mail. Im not stressing it, my scores arent that special. Plus I hear Texas is all about the hometowners. I hope I get into Houston though.

  • First choice
  • Sunday, December 09 2007 at 09:09 PM

Hmmmm I dunno. My first choices would obviously be NU and Mich... but those are real long shots. I'll probably end up at either Wisconsin or Minnesota. Which would be great for me; as they are close to home. I'm rootin for you to get some acceptances soon... I feel them coming for you!

I wonder if that UH decision is real. I heard they were gonna wait till later on in the cycle to get a better idea of the candidate pool. Hopefully we'll hear soon!!

  • Sunday, January 06 2008 at 11:53 AM

Thanks! Congrats to you too. No mention of money, but I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that they will send some later.

- Elise
  • that first message sounded a little odd
  • Sunday, January 06 2008 at 12:00 PM

ok, i don't actually mean that i hope they will send me money. i mean i hope that they will send me a scholarship letter later. maybe they have a scholarship committee that meets later. i'm sure you knew what i meant but it sounded weird after i sent it.

Normal sized white envelope. About three pages of correspondence inside. I was not Ed. GOOD LUCK with everything!

  • UH Status Checker
  • Friday, January 11 2008 at 09:09 PM

The day before I received the letter, the status changed to "Decision mailed (We do not give decisions over the phone)." You might get some advance notice from it, but not much. I see you attended the Houston LSAC forum. Being from Beaumont, I was considering attending the February forum in Houston. Do you think I would find the information there useful, or is it perhaps less relevant at this stage in the admissions cycle? Congrats on Tulane, and good luck with the rest of your admissions cycle!

  • Saturday, January 12 2008 at 07:03 AM

Yes, status did change. I am in Houston, so the letter got here quickly. It was dated Jan 9th.

Yes. It went to "Decision Mailed" Good luck!

  • Hey
  • Sunday, January 20 2008 at 10:07 AM

Yeah, its me. Congrats on your accepts so far. Lay off the Houston SC, they only update it once per week....

- sailorbear
  • UH
  • Sunday, January 20 2008 at 05:50 PM

I heard it from the admissions office. I asked, they said it was once per week that it was updated. However, I would assume that just because it isn't updated doesn't mean action hasn't been taken on your profile or a decision made. The things aren't foolproof and I would imagine routinely decisions are made and sent without any status changing. I was just saying checking it hourly isn't necessary because they bulk upload updates (assuming that's how it's done). If you disagree though, feel free to check it often, I just know that it's not necessary. Oh, and best of luck with UH, Baylor (my UG) and UT.

  • Location
  • Sunday, January 20 2008 at 07:45 PM

Location isn't an issue for me. I have my top 10 ranked. I won't get into UT, but until they say 'NO', it's my #1. I adjust them as a 'Yes', 'No', or 'Maybe' come back. For now, I am going to Creighton, but I have a lot we'll see.

My status never changed online and I received by rejection in a small white envelope. Congrats on Tulane, that is amazing!

  • Congrats on Baylor!
  • Friday, January 25 2008 at 12:47 PM

Given that you're going to get into Houston, is there any chance you might pick Baylor over UH?

- nachtbrand
  • Congrats so far!
  • Saturday, January 26 2008 at 09:16 AM

I was wondering if Baylor had you fill out anything for scholarships before you were admitted? I just went complete and was wondering if I needed to do anything more to try to get a scholarship...Thanks!

- malissa07
  • top choice
  • Saturday, January 26 2008 at 06:48 PM

my top choice is Hastings and then UW, but Iowa is up there too!

- lucyinthesky
  • Thanks!
  • Sunday, January 27 2008 at 10:33 AM

Thanks for the scholarship info. Congrats on the $$ from Baylor as well! I'd consider all the schools I applied to "serious contenders"--until they reject me, of course :)

  • Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 06:26 PM

Hi, I'm sorry, I didn't see your 12/20 comment until today. I didn't actually get accepted to UH this go-round; the stuff was left up there from when I applied during the 05-06 cycle. I'm so sorry for the confusion. RRRR

  • tulane
  • Thursday, January 31 2008 at 01:37 PM

congrats on tulane to you too! i would love to go to tulane but the parents will only pay for what would be comparable to in-state public tution so i'd end up having to take about 15,00 a year out in loans....not fun.... oh and good luck on UH! :)

- LonghornGal
  • Congrats
  • Friday, February 01 2008 at 07:18 AM

Wow! Awesome scholly to Baylor. I have to admit if I recvd something similar Baylor would go way up on my list, :) Again Congrats!!

Haven't gone to decision yet, but the status checker says "File in review" so I'm hoping it'll come soon! Good luck with your app!

  • Sunday, February 10 2008 at 06:41 PM

No decision yet, I'm still at "File in Review." I would bet that most ED applicants will go to decision this week though. I guess we will see tomorrow when they (hopefully) update the status checker.

- hurley311
  • U of H, etc
  • Sunday, February 10 2008 at 11:09 PM

No answer yet from U of H. I don't think they abbreviate ED correctly (and I am currently entertaining speculations on what they might have confused it for). May I just add that you have two WAY more attractive acceptances? Baylor with a 1/2 scholarship has got to be hard to refuse, and Tulane is really really really awesome for someone with LSAT scores like you and me. (BTW if you've never been to New Orleans, it's a really cool place -- even aside from the Mardi Gras hoopla). Email me if you want.

  • Monday, February 11 2008 at 05:52 AM

No, I haven't heard yet, but my status checker says "File in review", so I I am thinking I will hear sometime this week. I agree with the person above - Tulane is an awesome school and you really should move that to the top of your list unless you are trying to stay in Houston.

ooo what a great idea! i will have to go and stock up on quite a few pints of icecream for all the rejections i have coming my way

- ekm86
  • UH
  • Wednesday, February 13 2008 at 12:44 PM

Unfortunately, I still have not heard anything from them. If they're planning to mail out all ED decisions by the end of Feb, they got some serious work to do. The only thing that's keeping me from going crazy is knowing that @ least they're not saving all the rejection letters till the end. GL!

  • Saturday, February 16 2008 at 01:24 AM

No plans on practicing in Houston -- San Antonio is home... But I have a detailed cost-benefit analysis, and UofH is real high with the in-state tuition being so low. St. Mary's/STCL/TXWes are all private, so in-state does no good. STCL has a good reputation, and their part-time program rocks. I've met personally with all the schools in Texas, and those are my (reasonable) top 4, with UofH being the longshot.

My file just turned to review in the status checker. I wasn't aware there was a status checker until a few weeks ago so I don't know how long it took between stages.

  • Sunday, February 24 2008 at 05:19 PM

What do you think the odds are that we get decisions from Houston this week?

  • Baylor vs. UH
  • Tuesday, March 04 2008 at 06:20 AM

Have you had to send Baylor your seat deposits yet for summer? What are you going to do when Baylor's deadline comes if you haven't heard from UH yet? As of yesterday UH had not finished reviewing all the ED applications yet. I applied regular decision and am really worried that I'll have to start making choices w/o knowing if I'm in at UH or not.

No, I haven't received a decision from Houston; I asked when they give out early admission answers, and they said between Jan. and March. Regular Admission is decided in May.

I'm still considering Missouri as well, but Tulane is at the top of my list with USD and Missouri being tied for second. Looking at UH's total cost of attendance makes me really wish I wanted to live in Houston, but it just isn't for me. I'm just making sure that I don't get any unexpected money from Houston and will probably withdraw early next week. Good luck.

I'm just curious as to why Baylor 'wasn't for you.' I have some reservations about the school myself and was just curious what your reasoning was. I have a friend at South Texas and he seems to enjoy it so I hope you do too.
