got the waitlist tonight as well.. 163/3.4, complete 2/3 with no further update

really surprised. can't help but wonder if my slightly later application submissions killed me this cycle. 5 waitlists; 2 which i thought i was in contention for scholarships from. no worries though.. good thing i settled on Houston last week. good luck to everyone this fall, my cycle is now complete. GO COOGSSS

Stats? complete date?



FT 161/3.8
Complete 2/25

I called the admissions office, and was told:

- They will not be looking at the waitlisters until after June 1 (seat deposit deadline)
- Waitlist is NOT ranked
- We cannot send in any additional materials, updated info (which seems weird... I graduate before June! Updated transcript!), OR a LOCI

Has anybody else been told the same things? I thought it was odd that we couldn't send in the LOCI or updated materials...

Sorry to hear that. I'm really pulling for you to make the cut this year.


Thanks. I'm still hoping but if this waitlist is like last year's, I'm not going to be holding my breath for too long. Real bummer...



What was last year's waitlist like?

Little to no movement at all. Maybe a few people got off the waitlist in late July/early August, can't remember for sure. Personally, I sent many LOCI, visited the school, was basically told it was only a matter of time, but was finally told in late August that they would not be taking any more people off the waitlist. Hoping that things are better this year...

I was borderline last year. On the WL until mid August when I finally got a rejection letter.

i also got the waitlisted update today..
Does anyone know if they will be sending out letters along with these waitlist notifications?
I don't like the idea of not being allowed to send an LOCI..

Congrats!!! Don't rush your decision because you feel bad about holding a seat. This will be one of the most important decisions of your life, and making a mistake could potentially be VERY expensive. Do research, talk to alums, and do anything else to make sure that you choose the best school for you. If there was ever a time to be selfish, this is it.

Hopefully it is like the waitlist two years ago. They admitted a ton from it and even offered money to several waitlisters.

Good luck all!!!

153, 3.5, ft/pt. Really good softs - uncle was the chair of the acct program at smu in the 70s. And I'm a tripple legacy. And IMHO I wrote some very good statements, both personal and why smu.

I know my numbers are low (mainly LSAT) so I conclude that my softs have kept me alive thus far. Now whether they lead to an acceptance is the 1 million dollar question.

Expecting the rejection letter in the mail today. Anyone else DR 4/26 already know what the decision was?

Checked my status checker and had DR today, (4/28). I have a $300 deposit due tomorrow at another school so I'm anxious to here the decision from SMU, along with the financial aid. If I explain my situation, will they release the decision via phone? Do they ever release scholarship info via phone too?

who knows? I'm expecting W/L though

edit: wait, I guess it means accept or reject if people actually saw "waitlisted" on their status checker?
