Plan II Honors does not have a guaranteed response date for Plan II admission notification. Those applicants who complete their application on or before October 15 will be reviewed first, however we do not always finalize the admission decision and/or notify every applicant at the time of review. We read all applications in the order in which they were received. So applicants who submit earlier and who are reviewed earlier are more likely to receive notification earlier.
We will begin to release SOME decisions in early to mid-November. Plan II expects to release two or three batches of admission notifications by mid-December. These will be mostly offers of admission, but we may also begin to release denials. Not receiving a notification at this time does not have any indication for the eventual decision, positive or negative. We receive a large number of very strong applications, so that very high range of applicants make up the greatest proportion of our applications. Because of this, we wait until a good number have been received and reviewed to make sure that we have a clear picture of the applicant pool before finalizing the bulk of our decisions.
We always have all the Plan II Honors admission notifications out long before April 1. For the past five or six years, we have had our admissions review processes wrapped up by late February. However, you may expect to have heard from us by mid-March.
All (complete) applicants will receive a written notification from Plan II. Plan II admission decisions are released on paper only and sent through the US mail. An admission to Plan II will NOT reflect on the electronic Status Check website with other UT admission decisions until after the decisions are mailed out and (hopefully) received. However every applicant should track admission documents and UT admission status using MyStatus.
If an applicant has not heard from Plan II by March 15, he or she should email Kerry Pasquale (including the full name, UT EID and birthday). We will research the matter and respond immediately. Although it is very rare, we have had an envelope or two (again, both happy and not-so-happy) go missing in the US mail. Of course, be sure to keep your information up-to-date in the system if you move or relocate.
