That's true, but I'm asking if it makes a huge difference to apply, let's say, this Friday, instead of tomorrow, for domestic applicants. Most of the other schools ration off the decisions in firm rounds, it seems that UT uses "suggested" deadlines and rolling admission. So, instead of comparing your application to everyone in a single round, UT just compares it to whatever has already come in. Correct?

If those two days will make your application better, then wait the two days. However, McCombs says they evaluate applications as they come in, so the longer you wait, the fewer spots available. If they have already admitted say 300 of the roughly 500 they will admit this year, then you are at a significant disadvantage waiting this long versus submitting in November. However, I don't think two days will really matter. Just make sure the application is the best it can be, then submit.

I would not worry about a difference of a week not to mention a few days. Some people have been hearing back a month after their interview and there are people like me who are waiting over three months for a response. Get your best app in whenever its ready and maybe take a little extra time if you think its worth it.

I wonder what's taking them so long to respond to some applicants. Have they lost track of stuff?

I have read on the BW forums that many people have called to check on their status. I was tempted to do so on Friday, but Im not sure what good that will do. They obviously havent made a decision and I wonder if it will look bad that I am calling. What do you guys think...just wait patiently or call so that they can tell me that a decision will be made in the next few weeks? At least the latter will make me feel like I am doing something.

I think it doesn't hurt to call once, especially if you need to respond to an offer
from another school.

Well, I called today and they told me that when a decision is made, the website will be updated. Thats it, the guy had no idea of when I could expect a decision. I guess I could have been a little more pushy, but I didnt see how that would help much. Anyways, the wait continues.

I thought they will call you or email you with the decision instead of just changing the status on the website?

I was admitted last Friday and the decision was communicated through their "check your status" website. I then received a congratulations call about 3 hours later. I think it is varying for some people but I would be checking the website occassionally to make sure that you haven't missed anything.

I submitted my app on 2/1 and paid the $125 then itself but today I got an email that I still need to pay the app fee.Did anyone else encounter this issue? Also the status page shows that I still need to submit my essays even though I submitted them with the app. Current Student Joined: 03 Sep 2007 Posts: 137 Schools: Ross,Johnson, Darden, McCombs, Simon Followers: 1 Kudos [?]: 2 [0], given: 1 Re: Calling all Texas (McCombs) Fall '09 applicants! [#permalink] ### Show Tags 02 Feb 2009, 21:03 I have read that the majority of people are finding out through the online status check page. Perhaps this is because so many of us are checking it hourly in anticipation. Has anyone heard how much app volume is up at UT? maybe they are just completely swamped and are doing the best they can...who knows. And I have heard of a number of people who have had their status page report missing documents only to be told by the admissions people that they have the docs and not to worry.

I haven't seen any information indicating that on any of the other admit weekend messages on here. Most of my friends who went to law school were reimbursed for some/most of their travel expenses - are we not? Hmph.

No, there is no reimbursement for travel, although some of the events at admit weekend are free.
