They do rolling admissions, so it's already started (some RD people in this thread have already been accepted).

I went from app received (1/15) to app complete today (2/3) so the process is moving along.

When they sent me the status checker link, they said that as long as I went complete by the RD deadline, they would mail a decision no later than April 30.

Good luck!

I've had friends with both good and bad experiences. The Lakes (of the Village) are nice inside, but those who live there tell you the apts in the Village without gates can be sketchy sometimes.

Either way, I'll definitely consider living in the Village when I move.

No packet in East Texas today.

No packages in TX/OK because they had to print the scholarship notifications...

Where did you get this info? I'm in Texas and got my package today. Perhaps the people who did not get scholarships got their info today?

Do the packages have any information on admitted students' days?

I'm not sure yet. My parents called and told me it was in, but I don't get off of work until 11 central time. So I won't be able to look at it until then. If nobody's gotten to your question by then, I'll let ya know what's in it after I get home.

Did everyone recieve an email inviting them to apply to the Summer's scholarship or was it selective?

Also, no scholarship decisions have been made yet, or at least that is the official line they are using now. They don't have the dates for ASD down either. I was told there will be two in March and one in April, and possibly one later in the summer.

I got it too. I noticed that their website said you had to be from certain states to qualify for this particular scholarship. I wonder if that is why some people were not invited.

I'm out of state, non-urm, at the 75% mark for SMU's LSAT and GPA but got moved from the early admission pile, to the regular admission pile. Has this happened to anyone else? Any idea why this might be? Are they pushing especially hard this year to move up the rankings?

you had to live in an adjoining state I think. There are going to be a lot of us from adjoining states applying and only 6 will get it. Also, it is for FT only.

I believe SMU's 75% LSAT is 165.

I am just below and didn't get bumped, but maybe you missed a deadline, like a lor wasn't received by Dec 1. Did you retake? Did you do the why SMU question? If not, I hear that is a very important part of the application.
