Seems like sections came out in July. You can see in old threads.

Actual schedule may already be available, just that you won't know which section yet.

ETA: Here you go: http://www.law.smu.edu/Registrar/Course ... edule.aspx

Look for "Sec 1 and Sec 2" on courses. Except LWRA where Sec 1-4 will be subsections out of big Sec 1, and Sec 5-8 will be subsections of big Sec 2. (Sec 3 and LWRA Sec 9+ are evening)

ETA2: Note that the tentative schedule may actually change. Ours did for spring.

I'm hoping that some people withdraw when seat deposit deadlines pass, and maybe some of us waitlist guys can get in.

Does SMU actually admit of waitlist or is it used as an in-between step to deny people?

I assumed they admitted off waitlist but lsn doesn't have alot of people the have "wl, accepted". Althought LSN is a self selecting sub group so it might not be accurate.

When is the deposit deadline? I applied early and got held for further review and haven't heard anything since then so just trying to gauge when I might hear back...

I am waitlisted and have a scheduled visit in April. Excited to see Dallas but trying not to get my hopes up.

Hi does anyone know if there is a form online for withdrawal or should I just an email? Had been struggling with the decision and even though its only a few days before deposit deadline is approaching, maybe it will expedite a decision for someone on the waitlist :)

Just an email will do. I included where I intended to matriculate in mine simply because some schools did ask why.

Isn't the deposit deadline 4/1?

Is anyone still pending because I am? I'm guessing they're just toying around before they YP me. Last complete was 3/20.

Yeah - the deadline is April 1st.

IDN - Maybe they'll wait around to see who doesn't deposit/??

I mean, isn't that what a waitlist is for?

Did you get your admittance by phone or mail? Maybe they sent it during the last complete date (3/20) and my family missed it. Idk.

I never got the famous phone call... I only found out through status check.
1 week later I got my package...

Someone from Admissions will call you after you are admitted, followed by the official admitted student packet. If you get a scholarship, the scholarship letter will be in the packet. It is unusual for it to come after.

If you didn't get a phone call, then I would check to make sure that your voicemail box is set-up!

Most schools hold some apps until after the first deposit deadline and make decisions on them after they see what shape their class is starting to take

Has anyone here requested an extension on the first deposit? I don't want to lose 250 dollars but I have had no time to make it to campus for a visit and don't want to make my decision without that

It doesn't come in the admissions packet. It will come later on in a separate letter :)

Yeah I got mine in the mail exactly a week after. If you need it sooner you can just email and ask for it. They will give it to you

Okay thanks! I was searching every document in the admissions packet thinking they forgot to put it in there! :D
