I'm actually facing the same decision between these two schools. However, I received scholarship offers from both schools (20k/year at SMU, 30k/year at Emory). Even though Emory offered me more money, I'm pretty sure I want to be in Dallas. From research I've done, if you do well at Emory, you're looking at getting jobs in NYC, DC, and Atlanta. If you fall below the top third of your class, it seems Atlanta is where you'll end up.
That being said, I'm from Oklahoma, have family here, and love Dallas. Baring any waitlist movement, which I'm not expecting, I'll be heading down to Dallas this fall.
Longhorns > Sooners ALWAYS!
Goes without saying. That's like saying the United States > Canada.
Aggies > Longhorns > Sooners > Canada ... scientifically proven
EDIT: I will admit, however, that Austin is hands down the best place I've ever lived

I'm not trying to assist you with your bashing of Czar, all I was doing was answering the question.
In fact, I have no idea what your beef is with him... he seems alright to me, but what do I know.

It's because heterosexual males for the most part are full of pride and bravado - ie. phrases such as "how much of a man are you".
To question a man's "manhood" is to take a shot at that ego. Nothing threatens a heterosexual male's sense of "manhood" more than the notion that he may be homosexual (which implies femininity).

Best of luck everyone. It's surprising to me just how popular SMU seems to be. For being at the lower end of tier 1, it has an amazing yield rate (47%). I'm having a tough time myself deciding whether I should take the SMU offer and be close to college friends (ags) and family, or whether I should take the higher ranked Minnesota or Illinois offers. So many great things about SMU (especially placement and location), it seems the only downside is rank. I'm starting to wonder just how important that really is.
You all seem very excited and eager to hear, so I truly hope that you get in, since that is exactly the type of applicant that deserves it the most, in my opinion.

Congrats on IU-B!
How long had you been complete before you heard? I haven't heard anything from them in a long time...
thank you. I actually went complete in mid march, so I fortunately didn't have to wait too long. I don't know how that relates to you, but i hope it helps.
