  1. I appreciate your honesty, although I have to say that it would have been nice to hear these things prior to choosing SMU over other programs. I don't necessarily regret my decision; however, I do wish there was more transparency during the application process so that students could make the best decision possible in regards to where they pay for their education.
  2. I just received my interview for March! I was pretty set for Samuel Merritt, but how could I miss out on an opportunity to interview with USC?? I'm very excited!!
  3. I know exactly how all of you expressing doubt feel, and I think it's important to note that the odds are in your favor. Over 2000 people applied this year to the program. Of that, I believe only 160 people were offered interviews. There are 44 seats in Oakland and 24 ? twenty something seats for Fresno. Right off the bat, assuming there are 24 seats in Fresno, that's 68 seats total. They said after each interview, 10 to 12 of their TOP candidates are offered seats immediately. Let's say they only offer 10 top candidates seats per interview, so that's their top 18.7% of interviewees who have already been offered seats. Once interviews have concluded, they probably combine ranked lists or go ahead and rank people, and then begin offering the remainder 38 seats to people. If my assumed number of seats is correct, that's 42.5% of those who interview being offered a seat by this point. You have to keep in mind that not everyone is going to accept the seat offered to them, so that 42.5% is going to increase to hopefully at least 50%. I know programs who open additional interview dates just because they exhaust their wait list - not to say that SMU will, but that I know it's happened in great programs that I've applied to this cycle. IF THEY INTERVIEWED YOU THEY WANT YOU ! Unless your personality isn't a fit, which is totally fine - there are other programs out there! These numbers made me feel so much better when I was waiting for my acceptance Side note: @william208 thank you so much for sharing your story!!! I know we don't know each other, but I am so proud of you. You're going to do so many wonderful things.
  4. Oh, I hope not! Thank you for the response!
  5. Hey all!! I gave up my seat yesterday for another program in California. Good luck to all who are waiting to hear back!!
  6. Hey all! My program begins September 2019 and I am really excited to apply. Anyone know when the application opens for this year?
  7. Thank you! I was accepted at the Oakland campus! I selected the box at the interview that was only Oakland
  8. I just got an email!! I guess they couldn't get in touch with me via phone?? But I'm in!!!!!
  9. I interviewed in November. They didn't inform me, I just called and asked for my status
  10. I don't mind at all! It's the Samuel Merritt phone number listed on the website, 510-879-9200
  11. Just so people know, I ended up calling Lori a few weeks back and she told me I was wait listed. My top choice is in Cali, but hopefully y'all find this helpful!
