I did. I sent it in on 1/25. How long do you think it'll be until they make decisions?

I don't know if the Sumners is mainly numbers based or if they are taking in soft factors as well. I bet you could look back at a previous years thread and find users who announced when they got it.

i had a similar scholly for undergrad (full tuition + living stipend) and basically your numbers got you in the door, your softs/life story got you the interview, and the interview got you the scholly

Got my packet today too. I enjoyed they made an effort to put something personal in the letter.

Skimmed the catalog and some of the classes look really interesting.

I almost choked on my lunch when I saw sticker price right in the middle of that page with info on it. I am going to need scholarship money to make this happen.

All of a sudden sweating the couple hundred bucks on my credit card seem like small fries

Has anyone else waiting on a decision seen any recent status checker activity? I checked last year's thread, and it seemed like the second wave of decisions were given on 2/20 after status checker changes on 2/19. I know that there are others who have been waiting much longer (I've been complete since 1/23), but the wait is killing me. I want to practice in Dallas, so SMU is one of my top choices. Good luck to everyone still waiting, and congrats to the recent admits.

P.S. Sorry for bumping the thread without providing any relevant info :mrgreen: .
