I submitted my application on 12/5 (the round 2 deadline) but wasn't able to pay the application fee or upload the second copy of my transcript to the GIAC until 12/6 when I received the email from graduate admissions. I assume I will still be considered for round 2 since my application was in by the deadline but my fee wasn't yet paid, but has anyone been able to confirm this via the website or speaking with the admissions department?

Thank you


Don't worry, you will be considered for R2, this is just the weird way the McCombs admissions work.

Will all R1 decisions come in on the 19th or does McCombs typically start sending some out beforehand?

Difficult to say, unfortunately. For starters, the website actually says "the week of the 19th," so in theory it could be anytime next week.

Additionally, this is the first time in recent history that Texas has used a standard Round method of applications instead of their previous rolling application method. That being said, there isn't any information from previous years to go on since there weren't any deadline dates previously, as far as I know.

Here's hoping they start on friday for a great start to the weekend!

I'm not expecting anything until Monday at least, and yes it could be anytime next week. They purposely didn't narrow it down to a specific date, probably just to give themselves some breathing room to make sure they can notify everyone in that time and nobody freaks out because they didn't hear anything either way on any particular day.

I was waitlisted as well.

The admissions committee has said that once you're waitlisted you can let them know if anything meaningful changes with your application - if you are promoted, retake the GMAT and get a better score, maybe even submit an additional recommendation, make sure they're aware of your continued interest. Anything that would remedy any weaknesses in your application can't hurt.
