She said it generally that they are trying to get a lot of the letters ready today to send out next week, and then she looked into mine and told me I should be in that batch.

@zanzbar: thank you for explaining. As noted previously, I have the same "application completed" date - 4/10 - and have been trying to be as patient as possible since then. SMU's my top choice, and one of the last to respond, unfortunately for me.

Completely understandable it's the only school I haven't heard back from yet so I just want to see how my cycle turns out. Also, I would like to see if they throw any money my way since people with similar stats were getting some nice amounts even as late as the first week of this month. I would say I am currently leaning towards going elsewhere, but even without being accepted SMU has become the only other school I am still considering.

Was held before. Now "Application Completed _ 4/25/2012" with nothing else visible at all (nothing in mailings, fees or requirements.) Bad news coming, or do they blank out everyone when a decision letter is in the mail?


Does it not even say "Full time" or "Part time" above application completed?

Y'all were both PT right? So hopefully they just did PT earlier today and FT later in the day or some time later this week(probably just wishful thinking on my part.) Congrats to both of you.

Ag and Arch were you guys waitlisted then admitted or did you enjoy being directly admitted? I was put on the PT waitlist April 18th and they said the second seat deposits are due May 15th so I should hear something after that date. Anyways congrats on getting in, hopefully I'll be joining!

I was admitted directly, but without any knowledge of my progression through the review process. No "In review," or "Final review" status updates. It was killing me.

Here's hoping you get off the waitlist asap. It's pretty crazy, how stressful the application and waiting process has been.

Stressful is an understatement. I thought the LSATs would be the end of the stress, then after I applied I was checking the "Application Status" 3X a day. Application was complete on 1/14 and it didn't change until April 18th. But Good thing for you, its over. I'll wait it out a little bit longer. Again Congrats!

Well I just checked for like the 5th time today and it says I'm admitted FT. Will they tell you scholarship info over the phone?
