SMU is one of the filter schools from my high school. If you want to be in Dallas, go there. There will be more religious freaks there than Boulder but if youre into that... thats special. I wouldn't EVER go there because so many girls from here go there. SMU is boring too. What the HELL are you going to do in Dallas, even if you have friends/ and isnt going away to school about making new ones?
Boulder is massive but you will find friends ASAP, I wouldnt worry about it. I also wouldnt ever compare the two schools. Hands down Boulder.
