Mention that you love the state of Texas. A lot. Mention that you love Dallas, too. A lot. Mention that Troy Aikman, Moose Johnston, and Emmitt Smith are gods among men. Mention that you love getting buffalo burgers at Ye Ole Butcher Shop in Plano, and that the corn bread that comes on the side with the platters at Market Street is really good.
I am kidding ... but only slightly. Discuss your interest in practicing law in Dallas -- a most wonderful city -- and how/why SMU is just the right place to accomplish that.
