I'm considering SMU, but haven't been accepted yet. Can anyone tell me about what to expect in the way of:
-when to receive an acceptance/rejection letter and financial aid offer,
-a general range of what a decent, but cheap 1- or 2-bedroom apartment (preferably close to school) should cost,
-and the school's overall atmosphere (e.g. competitive vs. cooperative, faculty, etc.)
My other main option is U. of Houston, so if you know anyone there, anything you could offer about what you've heard would also be very much appreciated.
