Has anyone seen their status change to auto admit in the MyStatus page for those who applied in August 2018?

    S19 should be auto admit, submitted early Sept. he hasn’t completed the honors and scholarship apps yet.

    Do they wait for all supplemental apps before changing auto admit status?

    Have they notified auto admits before December in previous years?

    I searched last year's incoming class message board and most of the auto admits received notification that they were admitted to the University first, some as early as September and October, but then didn't hear about their specific major until later, some as late as February 1. It depends on the college to which your child applies. My son applied to CNS Biochemistry so he may have to wait until February to hear.

    @romns116 No Problem.

    Good luck to your son. Hopefully we will both be hearing sooner rather than later.

    For anyone that hasn’t read through it yet, last year’s thread gives us insight on what to expect. It also has acceptances on the first page.

    @UTDad1995Grad
    Good luck to your son also!

    Slightly unrelated topic. If anyone is applying as the valedictorian of a small class (our case), the auto admit rules are slightly different:
    - 6% doesn’t apply to you (if it’s mathematically impossible). If you graduate with #1 rank, you qualify for auto admit.
    - The notification process is separate from the regular (6%) auto admit because the small class policy is separate. Small class policy is institutionally regulated, the 6% auto admit policy is vetted by the THECB. Those auto admitted from a small class may not get a portal update til Dec, maybe even as late as Mar 1.

    Got this information directly from the admissions office.

    DS’s portal says “Plan II (interested)” as his 2nd choice major. Does interested mean anything?

    My daughter is a freshman at UT. She was auto admit and her portal changed to "accepted" and she received a banner and acceptance letter in the regular mail in mid-October. (I have a picture of her holding the banner dated Oct 17). The portal updated saying accepted to UT but she had to wait until Feb. 1, to get accepted into her major. This was the same for every one of her friends. I know several waves went out before Feb. 1, where some people were notified of majors earlier, but I believe the vast majority were not told until Feb. 1. (I'm not sure if certain schools notify earlier. Most of her friends are in CNS).

    Feb 1, was very stressful. We must have 'refreshed' the screen a thousand times! She was accepted to her first choice in CNS.
    Good luck to you both!

    Congrats @Mojo1995 !
    And thanks for the helpful info. I wasn’t sure if auto admits get notification of acceptance into the university or only after accepted into their major. Sounds like the former (university acceptance).

    @romns116 , Glad to help! Assuming it's the same as last year, yes, you should definitely be notified early of admittance to UT if you're auto admit but will most likely have to wait a long time for your major. I'm not sure why some admissions waves went out earlier than Feb 1, (and what students were accepted at that point) but you'll most likely have to wait until Feb 1.
    It seems like a forever wait!

    I’m excited to see everyone’s progress!

    S19’s app entered completed status on 9/21. Scholarship interest app submitted 9/22.

    He has one question left (describe yourself in 5 sentences) on the TexesExes Scholarship app. I’m not sure he’s even started the Honors app.

    @enterscreenname Congrats on all of your hard work. Based on last year's thread, auto admits should hear something this month. It looks like it was more toward the middle to the end of the month before people started posting that their status changed in 2017. I don't think the timing of your application helps much, though, with your major. It has more to do with which college to which you applied. For example, the College of Liberal Arts seemed to notify students a lot quicker than College of Natural Science, which waited until after the 1st of the year for most people. McCombs also notified a little sooner I believe. You can look at the thread here for more info, but it's really long: https://talk.collegeconfidential.com/university-texas-austin/2022909-ut-austin-class-of-c-o-2022-admissions-p1.html.

    @TXlove there is no rhyme or reason to UT's admission process if your child is not an auto admit. By her scores you posted, it seems like she has a pretty decent chance of admission to the university. Regardless, you should be very proud of her. It's obvious she's worked really hard and will be successful wherever she lands. Good luck to you and her!

    I started a similar post before this one on another page for UT, but then found this page specifically devoted to Admissions. Everyone seems to be finding this page, which is good. However, someone posted last night on the other page and said that she heard from the UT Admissions office to look for an update on October 8th if your child is an auto admit. No idea whether that will apply to everyone who applied before that date, but it is movement in the right direction. Fingers crossed.
