I imagine the AdComm will stick around for at least a week past finals.

Does everyone have "Deposit 1 Paid" and "Deposit 2 Paid" fields under the "Fees" section in their status checker? I think they've been there the entire time, but I'm not positive.

Well guess what y'all?






I'm still waiting.

I'm retaking Saturday (postponed because of ice), and I had really hoped to have the confidence of admission (and some $$$) going in. Oh well. Hope we all get a Big D Christmas present.

My status date changed to 12/13. Also, I've got this at the top of my application page:

"You may notice that your current status date has changed. This is either because a portion of your file has been updated or the initial review of your file has been completed. Neither of these situations change your early, regular, or late decision standing. We are unable to release decisions by phone or email. All final decisions will be mailed."

Anyone have any idea what that means?

Well that's interesting considering numerous people in this thread found out that they were in via phone call...

The "We don't release decisions over the phone" refers to if we (applicants) called in to ask, however they (adcom) can call us to tell us if we are in..on that note...SMU adcoms, can you please call us to tell us that we are in? Thank you!

That status msg came the day of or the day before I got accepted. I found out via phone call because I was driving at the time but when I got home saw the status checker reflected "admitted" so the phone call and status checker may happen roughly at the same time. But that message about the status date change is definitely a good thing. you should expect a call today

Good to know! Grunge, what are your stats? If you aren't comfortable posting, can you PM?

is your GPA on the low end or something? I think our applications were pretty similar, so I don't understand why you haven't gotten in with these early batches. It makes no sense, unless something about your app makes them feel you're a yp risk, maybe? Is your undergrad from out of state or are you currently out of state? (meaning TX)

My LSAT is 1 higher than you and my GPA is .1 or maybe .2 lower than yours. I'm definitely not a YP problem. My why smu basically professes my undying love for everything smu. It literally says if I'm accepted I will immediately withdraw all other apps.

As one data point, it's pretty meaningless, but my admit a couple years ago came on a Friday afternoon around 3:30 or 4:00.

He said packet would be mailed out on Monday. Hope there is some $$$.

Good luck y'all!

Just got the call, packet will be mailed out Monday morning. Hoping that means I get it same day or next day, considering my home in Dallas is a solid 10 minutes from the SMU campus.

congrats everyone!

I just thought I would bump this up for those that got admitted today to add their info. I know there's LSN but this makes it easier for those that do not have an account to share

My status has not changed since 9/18 and still says "Application Completed." I feel like this is unusual to have absolutely no movement at all. Is anyone else experiencing this? Did anyone's status change to Under Review?
