I received the email below
Thank you for your interest in SMU Dedman School of Law. After a careful review of your application, the Admissions Committee would like to offer you a place on our waitlist with the hope that seats will open before classes begin on August 25, 2014. Each year the number of qualified applicants to SMU Dedman Law School greatly exceeds the number of available seats in the first-year class. As a result, the Admissions Committee is simply unable to offer admission to all applicants who possess the qualifications necessary to become a successful law student at SMU.
So that we might be able to accurately gauge the interest of the applicants on our waitlist, please notify the Office of Admissions if you do not wish to remain on the wait list by clicking here. Statements of continued interest may be submitted by clicking here and will be added to your application for the Admissions Committee’s consideration. Phone messages and drop-in visits are less effective.
Please keep your contact information up-to-date, as we may need to contact you quickly in the event that a seat becomes available. We will inform you as soon as any admission decision is made. Applicants on the waitlist are not ranked and we are generally not able to tell you what your “chances” are to be admitted.
Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
Assistant Dean for Admissions
I remember that email well, got it last year. I'm only asking because I know are status dates changed at the same time so I am on the lookout for mine.
