Now that it's getting close to Thanksgiving, we're running a contest to hear advice you've received that you're most thankful for! This can be any type of advice and the advice with the most reactions will win!JOIN CONTEST
I still want to keep my options open and wait to hear back from other schools, but I think I would be happy at Samuel Merritt! Will you be accepting?I received an acceptance letter via email on Saturday as well (interviewed 12/5). Is everyone accepting their admissions?
I'll be on campus tomorrow to see an academic advisor. Maybe I'll bump into one of you in the afternoon.
Hi huckleberry pim,
I was wait listed as well. In the email they sent you, did they give you the option to talk to an academic advisor or are you just doing it on your own? Also, did they also tell you in the email to sign up for FAFSA?
Hi!Good luck in your interviews! The questions are ones that you should be able to answer without studying for them. They ask the same five questions for every applicant, so as to be fair.
Respectful answer: I am not independently wealthy, but I am very happy to be a current student at SMU. It is expensive, but it is also not six figures for a degree. Let me tell you some things that our money goes towards, which some have complained about not having: Our faculty, all PhDs, are wonderful, and they personally teach the classes instead of leaving it up to someone else. In fact, many of the faculty put their cell phone numbers on the syllabus so we can call if we ever have questions about our assignments. The faculty also actively works to avoid favoritism and politics; they treat us like professionals. The facilities meet our needs, and are available to students not just for class times, but any time they are needed. Our cadaver lab is amazing; other schools I considered didn't even have anatomy because of the cost, but I have learned so much more at SMU than I did in my pre-requisite classes. The school provides free, high-quality tutoring for anyone who asks for it, and has many other resources available to students who need help. I have never felt like my education was lacking, and I absolutely recommend this program to anyone who asks.
MOT4ME, you have asked this same question for at least 3 years in the Samuel Merritt topics. I understand that the only bottom line for you is the $$, and your message is clear on many different threads. I do not understand why you insert these comments into a place where people want updates about interviews and admissions.

I'm asking multiple people about their SM interviewing experience as i'll be interviewing there for the fall 2017 cohort! any information or tips would help out! As it looks like you got into the program, I was hoping that you could pass on some advice for the interviewing process? do you remember if there was a set of specific questions asked, or if it was more of a casual conversation? I believe the interviews are group interviews, and then you break for individual writing samples? was that your experience? again, any tips would be greatly appreciated!
