Full time.

Also, they must have caught their typo because "neither" was spelled correctly :)


Interesting that is fixed on those updated today, but not those updated yesterday, probably, they didn't "catch" it, but didn't make the mistake twice.

are you PT? it seems last year the PT applicants who were first accepted had their status checkers updated the day after FT applicants did...

When does it come?

That will be the biggest deciding factor for me. My parents want me to go to SMU since they both did.




In years past, you get it whenever you get the mailed decision letter, or soon after, as far as I'm aware. Not TOO much longer to wait!

Is SMU typically generous with scholarships?

incredibly generous...
84% of their full time students receive grant aid with a little over 25% of their students receiving half-tuition to over-tuition grants. their median grant aid for full time students is 15k/yr or ~37%-40% of tuition.

For the graduating class of 2007, just 64% (lowest among private schools) graduated with debt and the average debt was only 80k, one of the lowest indebtedness figures for a private school. these statistics say alot since smu's law school student body is quite distinct from it's undergraduate population in that they're not as wealthy as the undergrads.

And there is a big difference between being in debt in Dallas making $70K or $80K and everywhere else making that much.

Mine changed on the 26th also.

What did your statuses change to? Sorry if this has been answered... it's been a long day and I can't find it. I applied this month but my status changed on the 22nd to complete... any chance that means anything?

3.4/162 smu undergrad

our statuses changed from complete 11/20/09 (mine) to complete 01/26/10.

if yours changed from application received on "x" date to complete 01/22/10 then it just means your application is ready to be reviewed by the admissions committee. you probably have a while to go (weeks if not months) before you get a decision.

For those of you who applied ED and had your status updated on the 26th, did anything else about your status checker change?

A phone call should come from a 214-768-xxxx number.

That's the SMU prefix.
