Are there any facebook groups for people attending SMU next year?

You know, I never did get a phone call...I mean, I got accepted in that first batch, right before snowpocalypse hit, but my feelings are still a little hurt. I hope it's still official even though I didn't get the phone call, because otherwise one admissions officer just spent my $250 deposit on a j. crew shopping spree...

I still can't PM you. I got the same thing w/ 2x the year by year money. Don't like that they don't have their estimated tuition and that it depends on the Board of Regents - jokers.
Has SMU's tuition increased at all over the years? Is it standard to not give a figure for tuition until after all deadlines?

UH's tuition...for some damn reason...is their 2010-2011 tuition and not 2011-2012. Last year, I know they increased the tuition from 21k to 26k, which is outrageous. I don't even know if they can do back to back huge increases but it is a huge turnoff not getting an estimate on tuitions. Everyone I spoke to at the school was like, "We have no idea, we can tell you last year's costs."
I was wondering of private schools face sim. hikes in tuition and fees. I would assume not but I think there should be at least some increases - just wondering how substantial.
Re: costs over 3 years, I don't know. probably less than 5,000 in tuition over three years. and based on the pictures, i'd rather be at SMU than UH if it was a 5k difference.
the TLS post has a picture of UH's architecture building for some reason.

It's called the Tuition Equalization Grant.

Yeah, if you're a Texas resident and haven't used it for a grad school program at another private school in Texas.
