Congrats on SMU! I wish I could tell you yes or no, but as you know, this is a very personal decision. It does seem like you've put a lot into this process and tried your hardest. It's difficult for me to know how much room for improvement there is in your application approach without actually seeing it and getting to know you fully. At the surface it seems accepting SMU makes sense, but if you'd be really unhappy there, maybe it doesn't. Maybe it makes more sense to not pursue an MBA at all? Or, like you say, to try again for something else. But I think that if you're dead set on an MBA and you've already put in this much effort/this many attempts into the application process, accepting SMU is a logical choice.
In the end, it has to be your decision, but I hope this helps!
