I am waiting for my packet to come in the mail too, although it did not arrive today. (I currently live in GA.)

hayman, do you mind sharing your numbers? Also, 24k/yr., is that essentially half tuition do you know? Congratulations!

I wonder how it takes more than two days to deliver a mail package from Dallas to San Antonio....

Waiting. Sigh. I got my hopes up after I saw the batch of acceptances from Friday, but now it has gone quiet. I hope to hear something soon.

Good luck everyone!

It probably didn't actually get into the mail until Tuesday, or you'd have it by now. Thursday's looking really good for you, though! I'm hoping being on the East coast doesn't add a day for me.

I know how you feel. I've been pretty bummed that I didn't make the cut this time around. I know there is still plenty of time but my odds just went down some...

Accepted on Friday (11/8) via phone call. 163/3.51, so kind of surprised to hear back this early. Haven't received the packet/scholly info yet.

It seems like it's about this time of year that the school prints their "Yield Brochure" to send to admitted students to convince them to come. Last year's featured 2015FT/2016PT numbers so this year's should feature 2016 numbers. It's magazine size, so if one of you admitted students gets it, the numbers are usually towards the back.

That's a very nice feature of SMU $ -- stips are "good standing." Good standing = 2.0 or above; 1L median = 3.09 (and there are no A+'s so you can guess what that curve looks like).

Got my packet today. $90k!
The brochure they sent me did not have this year's entering class stats. It's the same brochure they have up on their website, which contains 12-13 stats.

Random question but was the acceptance letter just a regular envelope or a large packet? Was hoping it would come in the mail today but, unless it was too big to fit in my mailbox at school, no such luck!

It was a large envelope that wouldn't fit in my apartment complex mailbox so I had to pick it up at the front office.

Congrats guys! Guess being on the edge of the country didn't help me out, delivery-wise. Here's hoping for tomorrow.
