that's weird, maybe you put in another email address that you haven't checked, or they copied it in wrong.

I just received a letter from SMU saying that they have deferred making an "early decision" and that I will be reviewed again with the regular pool. I am very confused since I did not apply by the early decision deadline (I applied in January), why did I get this letter?

I believe he was admitted for PT, so maybe it's for PT only??

Yeah, it's a PT dinner...I was just assuming there was a FT dinner as well.

Did you apply FT or PT? I believe that each has it's own early decision deadline.

Quick question for those applying for the Sumner.

Do we have to re-request our LORs or can they just use the ones on file?

it appeared to me like we would have to supply copies of them ourselves. I am more than a little frustrated by that, I can get two of them easily, but neither of them is by my professor, so I have to try and get him to send me one.

I emailed and told them I did not have physical copies of my LOR and asked if they could get them from my app to use for the Sum Scholaprship.

They responded and said they would get them from my application and make copies, so I dont need to worry about it.

Thanks! Sounds like we all just need to verify that they will do so for us.

They told me the same thing. I'm sure it'll be the same for everyone.

No package again today in Oklahoma City.
