    Are many of those that got uncapped with an appeal from the Dallas area? I heard that adcom messed up the non-auto formula for DFW area kids with counselors from top feeders making direct appeals to the University that something must be wrong. Guess it was.

    @tristatecoog I'm guessing the non-auto formula was messed for many schools from what I'm hearing. I just don't know how many school counselors knew to question this. I know not all the students at my son's high school (and we Local) who fell just shy of the 6% even bothered to appeal they just picked a different school. This is really alarming.

    @TexasTrue thanks so much for posting that. I am confused by Texas' application (I have a high school junior).

    Do they just pick one of those essay topics? On the UT application it says for the required essay:

    All freshman applicants must submit a required essay, Topic A in ApplyTexas and the UT Austin Required Essay in the Coalition application. Please keep your essay between 500-700 words (typically two to three paragraphs).

    Is Essay A the same as the UT Austin Required essay?

    And if they are requiring A, why is there a choice B and C?

    Then they mention short answers also. Is that B and C?

    Any idea?

    Thanks!

    @collegemomjam If your child chooses to use the ApplyTexas application then required essay is Topic A. It should be about the same prompt as the Coalition. Essays B and C might be required for other Texas schools your child is applying to, but there is speculation as to whether or not doing them for UT gives your application more “oomph.” Personally, I got in without writing either B or C (to journalism.) There are three short answers outside of the essay requirement. Hope this helps!

    Thanks @egginmegan.

    So are you saying an applicant can do B and C in addition to A, or just do one of the above?

    It’s either. Essay A is the only required one, so if your kid chooses to do B or C or both is their prerogative

    If you are applying to UT Austin, you should do everything on the application–all the "optional" pieces. This was by far the longest application my son filled out last year. He applied CNS & Plan ll. Was accepted to both in the first round of acceptances. Do not skimp on the UT application! those essays & resume matter! Submit all the recs you can too.

    Thanks for clarifying! So sounds like doing A, B and C is the way to go.

    Anyone receive word from FRI tonight? Not sure if they email or what it means if I didn’t hear anything today.

    @rswheeler My daughter is also waiting to hear from FRI and did not hear anything yesterday. We assume it will be an email but are not sure. I’ll post if she hears something!

    Another question—has anyone had a Valedictorian and been through the tuition waiver process? I’m trying to find out what amount is waived? Thanks!

    @txaggiemom- my DS was. There is a form you complete & submit (I think we got it from our school counselor)- they are very helpful with the process. The amount for Freshman year fall & spring semester tuition and fees was automatically applied to the 'what I owe.'
    Congrats!

    @MomJojo @bookmom7 Thank you! I had seen the link. I even called and went through 3 different departments yesterday before one finally said it was the full tuition & fees since UT does not separate them. However, I have also read that it is tuition only, not fees, so I was still skeptical. If it is really full tuition & fees for a year, meaning about $10,600 total, we are beyond thrilled!
