Couldn't find a thread yet for the application this year for UT Austin! I submitted for early decision and wanted to see if anyone else is on here who did the same!

I called them and asked about when they would be sending out invites this week. Was told they are meeting today and so start checking your email tomorrow! Didn't say a specific day, just that they would go out this week

I submitted my application for regular decision, so I probably won't hear back for a few months. How did you prepare for the interview?

Honestly, there's not much you can do to prepare since it's MMI. I say just be yourself and you should have no problem during the interview! The faculty are really nice and the MMI feels more like a conversation where they just want to see how you handle situations and who you are as a person.

Thanks for the feedback :) do you have a bachelor's degree?

For those of you who are from Austin, what is it like to live in that area?

For those who interviewed regular decision, can you post on here when you hear back from UT? I believe we are supposed to hear back sometime late February if I'm not mistaken.

I also just interviewed, seemed to be about 50 people per interview session, which there are 4, for regular decision and they accept a total of 125 students for the incoming class. Does anyone know how many students are accepted from early decision and how many spots remain for regular decision? Thank you!

They accepted 40 early decision and had about 80~ spots available for regular decision (I heard this from the Dean of Admissions).

Living in Austin is really cool. My sisters live there and go to UT so I visit often. My parents live just north of Austin about 30 minutes. I currently live out of state where I graduated with my bachelors this past year.

Yay just got my call. Random number while I was in class so I didn't pick up but just listened to the message with headphones and it was admissions!!! I'm psyched, haven't got my email yet but I better get started on the immunization stuff now.

stats were 99 pcat, 3.78 GPA, planning on finishing my degree, and about 8 months of experience. I do think I killed my interviews and essay, but good luck to all of y'all!

Just took a hard ass midterm like 2 hours ago so I don't gotta worry about getting all As anymore! See y'all next fall

nope just email
Does anyone know if they're finished admitting students? I haven't heard anything just yet.
I'm not sure, but I thought their last meeting was the 16th so maybe :(

I would call to make sure just in case! Best of luck!

I had my interview January 21 and I haven't heard back from them either
Same here. I have another friend who interviewed on the same day and we haven't heard back either. I wonder why some people have already gotten accepted and others haven't... :/
