I know the distinction is quite clear concerning the status checker for most other schools, but from what I hear on here, it seems that it isn't unusual for SMU to render a decision straight from "app completed".
I've watched SMU on TLS for several cycles and "Application Completed" I believe generally means your file is ready for a decision release. However, instead of releasing a decision when it has been made, SMU releases decisions in batches on the same day. Based on last year's thread, after the April 1 deposit deadline they released on 4/5, 4/10 and 4/17. Hope this helps. Good luck everyone!
