Negative. It's a very loose affiliation

I was under the impression that it was a former affiliation. Are they still loosely connected, then?

I'm IN!!! PT evening. I had applied to both and was really holding out for the day program, have a family and the day program fits our schedule better but I really wanted to attend SMU and applied for both. This means I have to keep my options open to other schools, but this is where I want to be, unfortunately when you are in a family you can't make the choice yourself.

Congrats to everyone getting in today! Thank goodness they let us know. And I am sorry for all of those that didn't get the answers they hoped for.

I thought about asking later in the cycle about getting switched to day but I heard in previous blogs that SMU admissions does not like to be asked this. Anyone know?

What about attending a different school then transferring into the day program after the first year? Any thoughts?

(Please don't get me wrong, SMU is still my #1 choice, period, but I have to consider all the options and the feedback would be great.)

Thanks!

Ask about switching. If they say no now, you can transfer to day easily enough after the first year, I think.

Honestly, I'm not positive. I remember when the Bush Library/think tank was being proposed,, there were some Methodists that wanted the church to block it from happening at SMU. Not sure what the church's influence is though, if any.

SMU UG and 1L here. Methodists Started school way back when, that's about it. No real connections anymore, at least I've never noticed one after 5 years of being here. Never had to take any religion class or anything like that. I think they'd take the "Methodist" out of SMU, but who would want to go to "Southern University"?

In via status checker like at 10am this morning. I saw this asked a couple of pages back but I don't think decisions are just limited to early action applicants because I applied very late December and heard today..

my laptop removes the emails from the server when it downloads them. the email is only on the laptop, which is in Austin, TX, not in San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua.[/quote]


Maybe you can contact a friend and get them to look for you?[/quote]

Hey, just call the school and tell them what's up. They will likely verify it's you by your SSN and then just tell you over the phone. Worst they can say is no.[/quote]

Thanks. Turns out they sent a letter to my house in Texas and I´m held for review so they wait to see if some of you people decline.

Crap.

I will have to watch the Factor tonight and see who Bill-O supports before taking a stand one way or another


Haha. Funny. Wait, this is a joke, right?

If any of you evening program admits have questions, feel free to PM me. I might be a little slow (work, school, family, and internship) but I'll do my best to clear up any questions.

Congrats to all the admits... and good luck to those who waiting or have been held.

No, I was completely kidding about wondering why you posted something completely and totally unrelated to acceptance / denial / questions about SMU in the thread devoted to questions about SMU / acceptances / denials.
