That was for someone deciding between UH and SMU. C'mon man, it wasn't that difficult to follow.

Thanks for helping me with my law school decision.
Really? A few people on a message board enabled you to make this sweeping characterization? SMU has one of the friendliest student bodies anywhere. Sure there's a lot of fake snobby undergrads, but even the girls with three pounds of makeup on their face and the guys driving Hummers with spinning rims will stop to give you directions with a smile. And from my limited experiences the whole stuck-up undergrad culture doesn't exist in the law school- perhaps Kalvano or Thirteen can vouch for this better than I can.
Honestly, I really don't know what you were expecting. You came into this thread acting like a smart-ass ripping on SMU, and people didn't welcome you with open arms? Imagine that. Good luck with Emory, though, it's a great school and apparently a much better choice for you.
