Really - seriously??? I'm being honest.
BRING BACK THE GLORY DAYS OF SMU FOOTBALL!!!

For some strange reason, one of the few universities that REFUSE to use their school colors: Harvard Crimson & Yale Blue.

No idea on Engineering - but I know SMU is REALLY excited about where they feel like they are in the admissions world right now in general. A very noticeable step up is the rumor.

The student and parents felt that SMU’s program offered a better chance to get the major of choice vs general engineering in year one with applications for desired major in year two at A&M. Smaller classes and engaged professors were other pluses. Overall the SMU admitted student’s day was well run while they felt A&M’s was lacking. This was one opinion.

Interesting. When you thought of engineering in Texas (during my era) one always thought of A$M being one of the best in not only the state but the country.

Attended a Cox reception at the Balboa Bay Club in Newport last friday for admitted students, parents, and alumni. Very well done and well attended. SMU's demonstrated commitment to recruiting California students and the opportunities after graduation were a focus of the presentation. Impressed by the number of very enthusiastic admittees and parents in attendance.

SMU really needs to bring in more applicants and encourage more applicants to significantly drop the acceptance rate. It's too high now.

Build up a pool of applicants to whom we can later deny acceptance, lol

Half naked, yes. But we've never been in the top 10 in Texas as far as good looking women, IMO
