On January 9, SMU emailed me and said they were moving my file into the regular decision pool as they would not be admitting me via early decision. Interestingly enough, I didn't apply early decision.

As of today, February 24, I have visited McGeorge's campus once and have attended one of their alumni events. I am making arrangements to visit more schools in March for admitted students' days, class audits, etc. I also plan to appeal at the end of March Hastings's decision to not award me any merit-based aid.
