Comparable schools to SMU for business and social scenes?

Southern Methodist University is my top choice for its Cox School of Business and vibrant campus life, but Id love to hear about any similar alternatives. Any other colleges come to mind with strong undergrad business programs and a social scene that doesnt sleep?

Absolutely, it's great that you've got SMU's Cox School of Business on your list. There are several other schools you might consider that are known for their standout business programs as well as lively campus atmospheres. Take a look at schools like the University of Southern California (USC), which is well-known for its Marshall School of Business. USC also boasts a bustling campus life in the heart of Los Angeles. Another school to consider is the University of Texas at Austin; its McCombs School of Business is highly regarded, and UT is famous for its active student life and strong sense of community. Similarly, Vanderbilt University in Nashville offers a top-notch education through its Owen Graduate School of Management and has a vibrant campus culture. Lastly, don't overlook Tulane University in New Orleans, where the Freeman School of Business provides solid academic opportunities, and you'll find an incredibly unique social scene. Make sure to visit these campuses if you can, as the 'fit' factor is super important, especially when it comes to balancing academics with a social life. Good luck with your search!
