    I probably should have kept my mouth shut. Hopefully letters are really on their way. We can blame my friend if I'm wrong. :oops:

    I'm really confused. I thought we were supposed to get them over Spring Break. I heard the Dean just got the list of those accepted yesterday. (Not that I wouldn't mind getting them early! :D.)

    ACK! I put down my home address, and since that's also in TX, I'm hoping to hear news tomorrow!

    Good luck!

    I only heard one person's news specifically, so I'm not sure if they're sending all news out at once or just acceptance news.

    I talked to the vet I work for the other day and told her I might apply to TAMU this coming cycle. She told me that they are very lenient for IS students, but for OOS, they reject you right away if you don't have at least a 3.9 GPA.

    Is this true? Any OOS students get an interview with less than a 3.9 GPA?

    Oh my goodness! Congrats everyone!!

    So I'm like super super anxious. I just saw all these posts and feel so far away from Texas right now. I'm having my mail forwarded here in Missouri so I have NO IDEA how long it will take to get here....if I got in of course. I just want to know!!! (Like pulling off a band-aid :/ ) Do you accept online? Does it show up on the applicant site? Any email of any sort? This is killing me!!!

    Define the phrase, "very lenient". I'm a Texas resident- and a 2x graduate of TAMU- and have been rejected without an interview twice. I don't consider them lenient in any sense of the word. I have known for years, however, that they accept very few OOS students; it's something like 10 per class. But yes, anyone not from the state of Texas needs stellar stats to be considered and make it past the computer ranking system.

    Yeah, I'm on the wait list and having mixed feelings about it. :confused:

    I'm at #11 and I can't decide if it's realistic to hope I'll still manage to squeak in or not, and I'm going nuts wondering when I'll find out either way! Anything you can say about how wait list works would help me keep from pulling out what little hair I have left on my head :laugh:

    I was waited last year, but I was first on the waitlist so I don't really remember what number they got to. I want to say last year it was to 14 maybe?? You can probably search for last year's thread and find out. I got a call a few days before the deadline to send in acceptances in April. The waitlist is only for instate students. So any out of state students who decline, that spot will go to an instate waitlister. At least that's how it was last year. I hope that helps. I believe the usually call somewhere around 10 people. Sometimes more. It varies from year to year. I would suggest working on your back up plan. But also staying opptimistic (I know that's hard). I think you still have a shot at getting in, but I also suggest having a plan in case you don't.

    I'm not sure how long the waitlist is but they usually pull around 10. I think last year's there says how many were called. I want to say it was 14?
