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...

    SMU was so far my favorite campus/tour I have been on! Not only was everything one the campus in pristine condition, but everyone was super nice and willing to answer any questions! Would definitely recommend SMU to anyone that wants a smaller to medium size school but still has awesome sports!

    Southern Methodist University is a beautiful campus with so many opportunities available to students. The campus's proximity to downtown Dallas is great for potential internships. The facilities and buildings are updated and are up to date for the new innovative research that will happen.

    SMU has a beautiful campus, friendly students, and helpful professors. It also has a thriving social life, so it's important you stay focused, because it's very easy to slip up. Extra-curricular activities and athletics are also highly valued, as is a gpa above 3.

    Stepping on campus, I definitely did not feel like I was in the middle of on of the largest cities in America. SMU offers that small campus feel but has all of the opportunities of a larger university. The size and location is just perfect.

    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.
