I got my SMU Admitted Student packet today. Pretty impressive stuff, considering they spent $5 on priority postage for me...gotta love that.
I was accepted to the full-time program, and my seat deposit (like everyone else) is due on June 1st.
No word on scholarships in the packet, although I would be surprised if they had any money left.
What was in the admitted student packet:
--A navy blue folder in feaux gold-leafed columns that reads "SMU Dedman School of Law" on the front
Inside the folder:
-A large poster that folds out and reads "Go Mustangs!"
-Admitted students letter, dated on May 11th, signed by Dean Attanasio, personalized by the line in the opening paragraph "...In reviewing your outstanding qualifications, the Admissions Committee found particular interest in your outstanding academic achievements at the University of Texas" (although this could be an automatic fill-in-the-blank with the applicant's school)
-Some packet that talks about how good SMU law grads are in the business realm and the DFW law realm
-very useful apartment listing guide with apt. complexes that are often frequently inhabited by SMU law students
-an 'Essential information for Admitted full-time JD students' packet that talks about tuition fees, needing final transcripts, seat deposit form, and information about orientation
-some brochure called 'Dedman Center for Lifetime Sports' -- wtf is this?
-2008 - 2009 Dedman School of Law Catalog
Also, in addition to no scholarship info, there is also no information on the admitted students dinner. Can someone who was admitted and is attending that dinner clarify how they were notified about the admitted students dinner next week?
Thanks and good luck to you all...here's to hoping you will all be there with me next week
