SMU 2011 Transfer

Postby cpars » Tue Jun 28, 2011 10:11 am

Anyone put in a transfer app to SMU this fall? If so, any news? When did you go complete? Any word from the admissions office? Stats?

Oh Jesus Christ, where the fuck are you going now where you'd want to transfer to SMU????? Have you considered an exciting new career in migrant labor?

Creighton to SMU is a smart move, in my opinion. Good luck !

I'm applying. App is complete, but I was told that they will not start reviewing apps until July 15. I was also told that they let in about 1/3 of transfer applicants. Soooo *fingers crossed*

You're absolutely right to not lose hope. Deadline for seat deposit was set for today, no specific time given. I paid yesterday. Did you apply to Texas Wesleyan in Ft. Worth?

I didn't, I really considered it bc I have some compelling reasons for trying to get to Dallas...but, I couldn't justify transferring down...and I figured I would take a HUGE risk and go for SMU. *sigh* Now I'm thinking that was a dumb decision lol

I get it. I thought the same, transfer down.. nah. But I ended up applying only because it wouldn't have hurt me in any way. Only if there was an acceptance would I now have options to consider. Good luck to you!
