Not very helpful or attentive financial aid department. Very confusing.
Received massive academic scholarship, more than I needed, ran smoothly and am very happy
The office processes your aid at the very last minute. someone I know didn't find out how much money they received until about 2 weeks before school was going to start.
they say they give out a lot of aid, but I am now almost 300k in the hole debtwise...
SMU is really expensive, but they're usually pretty good at giving need-based financial aid. I received a substantial academic scholarship that's helped too. Still, tuition is steep even with scholarships.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
