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.

    @UTDad1995Grad Thanks!

    S19 applied to Moody for RTF and also Plan II.

    @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.

  • romns116romns116 Registered User Posts: 517 Member
    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).

  • Mojo1995Mojo1995 Registered User Posts: 31 Junior Member
    @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!

    My class of 2022 son was an auto admit. He found out his major in December and his honors acceptance in January.

    I pinned the thread. :)

    Should I unpin the 2022 admissions thread?
  • romns116romns116 Registered User Posts: 517 Member
    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.

    Thanks @Mojo1995 and congrats to your daughter and you as well on a job well done. This is helpful information and hopefully will ease the stress a bit when our son's status changes in mid-October (hopefully).
