At SMU we consider the total profile of a student that balances achievements in a variety of areas, not just test scores. We consider the quality of your high school curriculum and whether you elected to take more challenging courses. Work experience counts, too. We look for creativity, leadership, and community involvement. In short, we seek academically able students who possess a variety of skills, talents, perspectives, and life experiences.
