May your schedules be full with interviews, and your inboxes overflow with acceptances. God Bless the whole world, but mostly Texas.

Great luck at those interviews! I still can't believe how some people received an acceptance just days after their interview. That's awesome. :)

I was wondering about this and I'm glad you said that. The shoes I wear with my suit are cute, but not that comfortable. At the end of my first interview at Tech my feet were in considerable pain!

So, do people actually change shoes? I was just gonna tough it out, but if there is that much walking, I might take another pair of shoes.

Yeah, a bunch of girls changed, and I kinda made fun of the girls that didn't, who were clearly in considerable pain :p

Has anyone been able to find out for sure if UTHSCSA will send the next batch of offers out on 12/31 or will there be some sent out before then?

Most of us that have called have been told 12/31. There's only one person I think who was told otherwise. If you hear anything different though, let me know, it'd be nice not to have to wait that long! :)

The very earliest that any substantial salvo could be possible is Dec. 5, which is the deadline most schools have given for deciding whether to decline/not decline an offer.

Also, mgirl, your avatar is hilarious. I looked up the story behind it... and they ripped the corner off the envelope with the "tip," delivered the letter... and LEFT ALL THE COINS ON THE LETTER.

Free postage. Postage FAIL.

So i'm really thankful that I got accepted to TCOM & Lubbock, but I have to wonder why my application was passed over at all of the UT schools (excluding southwester because i didn't apply there). My stats aren't amazing, but after being offered a pre-match twice I feel like i'm a really competitive applicant. Does anyone know if after this is all over if I can find out why they decided not to interview me? or will it always be a mystery? :rolleyes:

I'm thinking of posting a thread soon about how to succeed as a re-applicant. Advice #1 would be: do a post-game follow up with as many schools as possible, even there's no official file review program and even if you didn't get an interview. I've heard of a few matriculants who have done this as well with schools where they weren't accepted or interviewed. So, yes, at some schools.

Interesting, but what do you mean by decline/not decline an offer? I thought the deadline for pre-matchers to pare down their choices to one was mid-January? or do you mean there's an earlier date that pre-matchers have to at least confirm/acknowledge that they have an offer (and what they plan on doing with it at that time)?

Most schools that offered acceptances on november 14th want students to accept or decline by dec 5th. Most students accept all offered acceptances and make a choice by the jan 15th deadline

Right, though "accepting" an acceptance just means you would like to hold onto it, not that you will end up going there. This threw me off at first.
