Thoughts on SMU Spindletop

Saw mention of the SMU Spindletop program on the SMU v.s. TCU post. Thinking about attending SMU and want to do energy IB. Can anyone shed light on the program? Also, how does it compare to the alts program?

 

Spindletop is a pipeline to Houston as far as I am concerned. Definitely do it if you are interested in Energy IB. As far as the program goes, I would look into their website, but some key takeaways I had was their board who are pretty much all heavy hitters in the energy space. Haven’t seen another school investment fund out there that has this element. I wouldn’t really compare the alts program to the Spindletop program because one is just a class where they let pretty much any kid with a 3.7+ in and the other is an investment fund that is highly selective.
