Admitted kids: Did you all get your letters with your SMU ID and email addresses? I'm surprised how happy an SMU email address has made me... and I haven't even committed yet!

it's not an e-mail. they send a letter to your home address (which is a problem for me since i'm at school) with instructions on how to log-in. and i got mine on wednesday.

Has anyone received a phone call today from SMU? Or has anyone's status checker changed today?

It's an SMU email address. The letter they send to you has the log on and your SMU ID.

I got the first letter with my password and e-mail, but I haven't received the second with the ID number yet.

I hope you all know how jealous I am of y'all. It seems like I have been held for further review for decades.

I applied in November ... enough is enough, I have withdrawn. Every other school that I applied to prior to December of 2008 has gotten back with me except for SMU.

I don't think I would withdraw. I applied in November, and even though I got into SMU, I still haven't heard anything from a lot of schools. I haven't even heard a word from South Texas since the end of January, and I though that would be a quick response. I would just wait, they will give a decision or put you on the waitlist, which isn't fun either. But that's just my opinion.

Chad, you're probably going to be admitted with serious cash money. If Texas is your market, I'd strongly reconsider withdrawing prematurely.

edit:

Also, unless something drastic changes (like you break 170+ on your LSAT or do some other type of remarkable extracurricular thing) you can probably expect the same, if not more competitive admissions this following cycle. Just my 2 cents.

Someone on LSN is reporting that they got accepted today...but it doesn't say how, maybe it was through snail mail?

Did your online status say "Decision Rendered"? Mine still hasn't been updated since 01/29/09 and it says "Held for further review"

Wow, just checked my email and noticed that for some reason they've had issues sending me emails. So I don't really have a way to check that information.

Not sure why they have an issue with it since they were able to send an email to notify me about it in the first place... oh well.

you can go to SMU's website and check your status check (that is assuming you know your login info and stuff)
