General discussion: anything you want to talk about!
I am a new to this site. I REALLY REALLY want to attend SMU and applied and am waiting to hear. How much does knowing a board member influence an admission decision? I do not have the exact criteria of the "perfect" candidate mainly a test to my learning difference. How much can this help me?
learning differences don't stand in the way. I can personally attest to that. the ALEC is a fantastic program that helps students with disabilities (or whatever you want to call it to feel good about it). I'd suggest you address this concern with an admissions adviser. ask them specifically about the ALEC and other programs. demonstrate that you don't let differences hinder you.
also, have the board member write a recommendation letter. and make sure that when you speak (not write, go talk to them) an admissions person, drop names.
the admission counselor emailed you? or the board member?
either way, glad to hear you want to go to SMU, best of luck, and be sure to stop back and let us know the good news.
