From what I've gathered recent decisions have been reflected on the status checker, so it's worth checking. I wouldn't tell you friends and family until you get a phone call or a letter in the mail, just in case someone hits the wrong button.

If any of us do get in we should host our own event, maybe call it "Aunder the medianSW"

Many of the 1st round of decisions (including mine) were conveyed via phone, but I'm not sure if they're doing that for this round.

Does anyone know if all the ASWs have passed? If so, I'd definitely be up for trying to coordinate some kind of meet up in Dallas with other late admits (if I get in, of course). I'm in San Antonio, so I would likely try to go up to Dallas the week following an acceptance if I get one.

I heard there is one more ASW but I'm not 100% sure, if someone can confirm or deny that would be great.

Oh no! All that for a waitlist. I'm sorry! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, flamingo.

Thanks, I'm really upset about it, but it's ok. I think I'm going to Retake the lsat in June if I can still register and see what happens. Otherwise, I'll be at Florida in the fall. Good luck to everyone else.

Potentially a dumb question, but can you be WLed after being held?

I've been lurking on this thread for quite some time now and I'm starting to get aggravated by the wait. I applied to SMU a little later in the cycle (file complete in January). My Status Checker still says "Application Completed" though. Anyone else still on hold even after the wave of WL's today?

Come on SMU, you were my first in and the last out.

That's what happened to me too. I got waitlisted today after waiting since 11/22. So frustrated.

You will get a phone call if you are accepted. Last year my status checker moved to decision rendered and didn't say waitlisted or rejected, which I knew meant that I was in.. got a phone call later that day.. It was a year ago tomorrow that I got in if I can remember correctly, and the week before they sent out a bunch of rejects via snail mail (DR on status checker), and the day before I was accepted a lot of people were WL'ed via status checker.. so if you are at 165+ or 3.9+ and still waiting this is where they give the splitters their shot.. keep holding out, good luck

We got an email today saying Hamburger Man would be on the quad Friday for an ASD.

And looking at the stats of some of you getting waitlisted, I'm surprised. Last year, many of those numbers were pretty much a first wave admit absent a felony or some other blemish.

I think they want to bump their median to 165 to not be #50 next year.

I am absolutely surprised at the numbers of some of the held / WL people. Last year would have been in with money.

I guess Attansio finally figured out his job is to raise the school's ranking, not preach on about the number of CEO's in Fortune 50 companies and what famous people are SMU grads.

If I don't go to SMU, I'm going to Baylor.. I already deposited but I'd really rather go to SMU at this point.
