lol seriously?


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.


sorry to post something unrelated


You misunderstand...I was honestly curious about what you intended people to do, etc.

I believe some who called mentioned earlier in this thread that we would be receiving packets next week

Would it be too late to call admissions and ask to be considered for part time, as well? I wanted full time, but my application is being held, and I really, REALLY want a SMU acceptance!
I'm feeling pretty dumb for not checking both boxes on my application when I had a chance:(

I'm the one that called. She said we will receive the packets next week. She didn't say exactly when they would be mailing them, though.

Don't bother calling today. School is closed due to Winter Death 2011.

It's worth a shot. They seem to be pretty relaxed about deadlines and admission procedures.

I think I remember a few people last year that were successful in asking to be considered for the part-time program.

I've actually enjoyed his class this semester. Wish I could say the same about our other Tuesday morning class...

I checked the boxes for both. On my status checker it says, "Full/Part Time," but I don't know what exactly that means...any clues?

I hear you can waste a LOT of gas sitting in rush hour traffic. You should install a taxi meter and then let them know how much they owe you! :lol:

But seriously...coming from California? Anyone know if they'll cover any costs?

From what I remember reading the last year thread, people who asked got shot down. But never hurts to ask. Maybe shoot them an email this week, once everyone gets back to work?

I only applied for the full time program, and mine says the same, "Full/Part Time".
