They will intentionally fail you out during 4th semester or during comprehensive exam, unless if you have some sort of connection with the administration and you make arrangements before you begin your journey at SMU. When students do what the school is doing, it's considered cheating. Now, the school is giving an unfair disadvantage to students who don't make additional payments under the table, by screwing those students and giving them totally different exam questions. Be very very very cautious of these snakes before you make a mistake. These are corporate level con-men who don't give a rats behind about you. All they see is money. They're not legally entitled to federal funding they receive, but funnel it to them anyway through their other schools.
