[quote]Why weren't you very impressed?
Please don't get me wrong, the campus is absolutely gorgeous, and the neighborhood that it's in is one of the nicest I've seen in my life. Everyone there was super nice, etc etc etc. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about SMU whatsoever. I think I just had this idea in my mind that I was going to be blown away by how perfect it was, and that didn't exactly happen. All this being said, I think if I get offered any scholly, there is a strong chance I will attend (despite my 'best school for cyclists' thread); for some similar reasons to the ones you mentioned. I'm not from TX, but I love the state, particularly Dallas (you can't beat the "park cities" or uptown). Combine this with the professional opportunities for myself and my wife in Dallas, and it's really a great fit for me. I think I was more or less hoping you would be able to blow me away with great reasons to attend.
Hopefully we'll be classmates next year.
