Sorry to hear, man. My SMU ding letter is probably sitting in my mailbox as we speak. I had a feeling that they were going to be incredibly selective after that USNWR rating dropped them to second tier. Good luck with Baylor. I got dinged from them on Monday.
BTW the letter is dated April 27, 2005 and postmarked the 28th
Sorry about the ding, but like supernga said, the new USNews ranking is probably making SMU reconsider lower LSATS (your LSAT isn't that low, but for a school trying to get back up the rankings, every LSAT point counts I guess). I honestly don't know how I got in, but I won't question them on that
. Keep in mind that the part-time program grew and they shrunk their full-time program to cope. All think all these things factored in making it really hard to get into SMU this year.
You still got Baylor (I too am waiting to hear from them for the Fall but I am realistic with my #s....lightnings not gonna strike twice). Miami is still a very good school but if you want to stay in Texas, send Houston a letter of intent or something. I will be pulling my name off their list if I don't hear anything from them by the end of May.
