Admitted Students

Congratulations on being admitted to Texas Law!

Whether you already know that you’ll be joining us in Austin next year, or are yet to decide if Texas Law is the right school for you, you have many important and difficult decisions to make. Where should you live? What student organizations should you join? How will you pay for law school? Our goal in the Texas Law Admissions Office and Financial Aid Office is to make it as easy as possible for you to identify—and answer—the questions that are most important for you to have answered before deciding where to go to law school.

Each year, we host two Admitted Students Days (ASD) for our admitted students to meet one another and visit Texas Law.  This year’s Admitted Students Days were held on March 3 and March 31.

You can also Visit Us during your own scheduled visit.

If you haven’t already done so, please make sure to join the Texas Law Class of 2020 Facebook page to start meeting your fellow classmates.  You can also follow @txlawadmissions on Twitter.

Within a few weeks of receiving your admission letter to Texas Law, you should be receiving an email from the Office of Financial Aid informing you of whether you have been awarded a scholarship. For more information on paying for law school, please visit Financial Aid.

Student Ambassadors

Since 1988, Student Ambassadors have worked closely with the Texas Law Admissions Office. Our ambassadors (also known as the Student Recruitment & Orientation Committee, or SROC for short) are current Texas Law students who have been through the admissions process themselves. Each admitted student has the opportunity to be matched with one of our ambassadors. Our ambassadors also provide weekly tours and participate in Texas Law Day and Admitted Students Days.

Student Housing

Approximately 95 percent of Texas Law students live off-campus. They have a vast array of choices when it comes to housing. The centralized location of The University of Texas campus along with the UT Shuttle System and Capital Metro service allows convenient access to many communities in the Austin area.

Getting Ready for Law School

There are some general conceptual tools which will be helpful to you in your first-year. Our very own Dean Ward Farnsworth wrote a great book to introduce you to many of these concepts: The Legal Analyst: A Toolkit for Thinking About the Law. If you are an admitted student to the Class of 2020 and would like a free copy of The Legal Analyst, e-mail admissions@law.utexas.edu and we'll be happy to send you a copy.
