Yes, hopefully for me. Applied super early and held for further review.

What was your LSAT if you don't mind sharing? I saw you had a 3.8 gpa.

Lets just say it's below the 25th percentile for SMU

Hey guys can you post the difference in time between completed app and decision information?

Also has anyone who completed application by 01/14/13 received info yet?

Also any idea on what I will get? I have a 2.98/169 and I really like SMU.

In, most likely. SMU is more LSAT friendly, so they shouldn't worry too much about that GPA. Case in point. :)

Hard to tell. I am a reverse splitter and I got one (but I am also a URM). I also applied very early. You may get one after the wtihdrawals start occurring, but it probably won't be too big. That is a pretty nice score, though.

Just got back from touring the campus and sitting in on a class. Definitely somewhere I could see myself spending three years.

No I haven't, but I live pretty close so I just emailed them asking if I could take a tour.

It was a contracts class, but I didn't catch the professors name.

Thanks! My GPA kept me out of FT, probably, but I'm ok with PT given that I have kids.

My app status date just updated today (2/22) for the first time since initially going complete on 1/11. It also says that all final decisions are mailed.

Maybe, maybe not. Perhaps they are only mailing decisions now bc they will be mailing scholarship offers with the acceptance letter.

Yeah, it doesn't say "decision made" or anything tho, just a date change and the thing up top.....
