sorry for the delay, stats 3.6/156 urm


If you are PT, I am guessing you will be admitted! I believe at the very least, you will get waitlisted.


Thanks,i need to get in so bad. Im praying for atleast a waitlist.



You and me both, buddy. Good luck to us. Cheers! :)

So it seems that there have been two rounds of PT Only decisions from the RD pool, but still nothing from PT/FT or FT Only. The logical conclusion is that the FT committee is still trying to decide who to accept. Some PT/FT people may really get screwed in the waiting game, because it's only after FT decides they don't want you that PT gets your file. I swear, this is the oddest admissions cycle I have ever heard of....

Edit--wrong date entered.


I would assume you are a lock. This probably spells good news for all that got updated today, as SMU sends out acceptances in batches.


Thanks for the positive vibe. :)

Any other year I'd be a mid-pack applicant for PT. Who knows what this cycle will bring...

I applied FT/PT and was accepted PT. I don't know if people accepted FT saw a status change like mine, but I think mine updated to (not 100% sure if they changed one or both after I was accepted):

Program Type: Full/Part Time
Degree: JD Evening

I think that was a sign I was in for PT.

So, is it safe to assume that these will most likely be PT acceptances/rejections? No FT yet?

I received my call around 12:30 for this cycle, and around 3:30 last cycle. Hopefully everyone in the thread will receive a call soon.

My status went application completed 2/24 and hasn't changed since then. Should I give up hope?

Thanks! It's hard to stay sane since I'm also still waiting to hear from U of H and Baylor.

Depends on your numbers. I went complete March 10th (FT/PT; originally PT only, switched after LSAT re-take). At this rate, I'll hear in June at the earliest.
