My experience at SMU has been very rewarding since it has open up for me many opportunities. After taking organic chemistry, I realized that I have a great passion for learning about how things happen at the atomic and molecular level. In addition, I realized that I have a passion for research because in a way or another, you are creating knowledge by finding new discoveries. I decided that instead of going for an MD only, I want to pursue an MD/PhD degree because I get to combine the two things I like the most - being a physician and...

    Southern Methodist University's campus is breathtaking. The downtown campus life is something that is unbeatable. In addition, the prestige that comes with being a Mustang is something that is hard to come by.

    Southern Methodist University is a small private university in Dallas, Texas. As it's name suggests, the culture at SMU is one that is very southern, polite, conservative in politics, and moderate in culture. Despite the name, there are many students from outside Texas, such as California, Chicago, Connecticut, and China.

    SMU has fulfilled all of my preemptive expectations, and also fits the reputation set by many before me. I was expecting the wealth to be extremely apparent, and it absolutely is in both the students and facilities. For those who are able to live this lifestyle on a regular basis, the school is everything you could ever want. I am a student with a much different financial background, and it has been a bit difficult to find people and organizations that I can relate to on a deeper level.

    SMU is a great fit for a wide variety of students. Currently ranked the #58 best college in the nation, SMU has a lot to offer its students from all of its different degree-granting institutions. I was a little weary about attending SMU at first due to its high cost and distance form home, but I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life.

    SMU provides an exceptional learning experience. I am a junior and have yet to have a class taught by anything other than a PHD. Lots of great research opportunities and lots of help.

    There are a lot of opportunities for internships and research that provide hands on experience. Education may not be the primary focus of the institution. For the amount of money paid for attending the university, the education received may be very good or sub par depending on your area of study.

    SMU is the kind of college you would see as the setting for any college age character in probably every movie you've ever seen. The campus is gorgeous and the people are pretty decent. The location is beond phenomenal; it has a suburban feel while situated in an urban environment.
