no. i thought about it. i never expected baylor to make it to tier 1 anyway. plus i have a full scholarship at baylor vs. half at smu. i'm sure i can find work in either dallas or houston if i'm in the top 25% of my class.

i think it's fair to say by the looks of the numbers that SMU's part-time numbers are really keeping their ranking from moving up

As for the PT program, 153-161 is quite a gap ... a 161 is what I expected for the 75th percentile, but given that their reported "median" was a 159 (yes, I know the difference b/w median and mean), I was surprised to see a 153 for 25th percentile ...

No change in my FT only status checker. I'm inclined to think your change is an acceptance, but the inclusion of both programs makes me wonder.

I just checked, and my status checker says the same thing. It still said "application complete, 4/14" when I checked around 8 this morning. Hope this means good news. Good luck chadwick, and for everyone else waiting.

So, is there anyone out there who has the following status? I'm trying to figure out why mine didn't change to JD evening...

Term: Fall Year: 2009
Program Time: Full Time and Part Time Degree: JD

ashleylsmith; Hook-Em and Chadwick's status both changed to that exact same thing.

I'm now wondering if this status change is the last batch of acceptances before WL's begin :(.

No, theirs includes JD Evening on the end...mine doesn't. We're probably overanalyzing these small differences...

Oh; strange. Probably means they were admitted PT, and you FT.

In at SMU for the part-time program! Just received the phone call. They said that I should receive the packet this week, and scholarship info in 3-4 weeks. I'm so excited! Also, they mentioned that there will be a part-time ADD on May 21.

Congrats! I'm wondering if the FT program is full now and they are only accepting PT at this point?

I don't think the full-time is full. I called this morning and was told they are hoping to get all decisions out this week (hoping...?)
I was also told that neither class is full and they are still doing acceptances. Let's hope!

Not to be weird...but what does your last name start with? Just curious if they might be going in alphabetic order...

I guess theyre still waiting to make decisions on the FT only people? Or are they just waitlisting all of us? Mine still says "Held for further review" sicne 1/29.

Thanks for the congrats, I've been smiling at work for the last hour. My last name starts with an H, by the way.

Congrats to everyone who heard back! Did anyone get the impression that this is the last wave of decisions and that the rest of us are getting WL'ed?

From how it sounds is they will probably send out a few more throughout the week.
