Assuming she was early decision then correct? Congrats and pony up.

Thanks! EA. They have to get admitted to Meadows first through a portfolio review process. Then Meadows sends the decision to SMU. Once SMU receives Meadows acceptance then they review their app for university admittance. It’s a dual admittance process. She is still waiting for the SMU acceptance. Which I expect will happen soon when they do everyone else who is EA. Meadows art majors have to have meet the academic requirements in addition to the artistic requirements and get dually admitted.

Where did you see that? I looked on Facebook earlier today, and I did not see anything about release dates. Thank you.

I think that next week will be a big decision release week. We are expecting to hear from all of the private schools to which my daughter applied.

I contacted Admissions office yesterday and was told EA decisions are coming out on December 20th, but that could change. Hopefully for an earlier date :slight_smile:

That’s disappointing. We were really hoping to hear from everywhere next week!

Thank you for letting us know the date.

To those of you that were accepted ED, did any of you apply to Cox? If so, did you find out about Cox admission at the same time as your ED acceptance? If not, when will you find out about Cox? Or how does that work?

Last year, EA applicants received their university admissions decision on Dec 17 and received their Cox decision on Jan 7 (accept, defer or deny).

My friend who has a son applying EA as well just called and heard the same as you. Looks like we are waiting a little longer…

How about Lyle, do they include that in the decision itself, or is it also delayed by a couple of weeks.

Yes! Lyle is fabulous.

My understanding is that only Cox and Meadows take extra time.

How does that work? My daughter applied to Cox. Is it possible she would get admitted to the University but not to Cox? How does that work?

Yes, my son is in the same situation so we’ll see the language that comes out on 12/20 (or earlier). For Cox, one is admitted to the university first, and then another review is conducted to see how the business class is stacking up. I assume there is a limit to the acceptable class size and Cox knows its historical yield rates. It will admit, defer or deny.

For those that are denied to Cox but admitted to SMU, one has to decide how important it is to major in finance, accounting, marketing, etc. The vast majority still enroll in one of a myriad of different majors – Ops Research and Engineering Management, Economics, Markets and Culture, Statistical Science, etc. – and can minor in business. That’s the way it’s been done but we’ll see…
