i said this earlier, but i did not apply ED. Do yall think this round of applicants is EDers only?

also, why don't they just invest in an "under review" status? that's basically what the top message says... kind of needless confusion

As I mentioned earlier, mine changed to "application completed" with the message on top on 1/27 and mine is technically regular decision. I applied in November but since I retook the December LSAT I wasn't complete until mid-January. When I spoke with a lady in the admissions office on the phone back in November, she said that meant I would not be considered for early decision... So to answer your question, no, I don't think it's EDers only :)

I'm still at "Application Received", so I'm guessing they are another school waiting for my Feb. LSAT. Considering SMU does everything late anyway, it doesn't bother me.

Yeah, mine didn't change and I'm an EDer. Don't know what's up with that but I'm pretty sure it will by COB Friday since they have to mail out some kind of response by 31 Jan.

I'm ED and my status checker did not change. I'm a little worried, but I think my numbers are solid for SMU. Yikes...?

+1. I wasn't complete till the first week of January, I think. When my status first changed, though, I went back and looked at last year's LSN to see if anyone non-EDers got notified at the end of January, and I didn't find any. I'm still hoping today is the day, though!

I looked at last year's thread...it looks like Thursday was around 3pm CST and Friday was around 1pm CST. I didn't look at LSN, just what people posted on TLS.

No change here for me.

I applied FT, 162/3.7x. I know I am borderline but I already feel defeated :( It sucks to get a half-ride scholarship to a peer school ranked higher and to get what looks like flat out rejected by the other.

Held for further review. Time for a badass LOCI. I want SMU more than any other school I applied to, and I refuse to give up until I get in/rejected.

Stats: 162/3.73.
