The people at a&m are the nicest inQuite BrightIndustrial Operations Engineering
The people at a&m are the nicest in the world. The Aggie network after you graduate is second to none. I would never go anywhere else and trust me, I've taken classes at 5 other major universities. The engineering program is tough but there are resources to help you if you put in the effort. The northgate area is also a great place for nightlife. Oh and Aggie sporting events are exceptional and extremely fun.

Social life is not good.Quite BrightIndustrial Operations Engineering
Social life is not good. Everyone hangs out with high school friends. I have been here almost a year and have really no good friends, and spend most of my weekends watching netflix. People here act like Texas and Texas A&M are the only important things in the world (a very closed minded place).

Education is great. I love my department and the classes I am taking.

I was a National Merit Scholar.Computer Science
I was a National Merit Scholar. I was told I would be given a large scholarship that covered a large part of the cost. I also got in to a few other schools, but the scholarships could not compete so I accepted A&M and put my money down. In the end, the scholarship disappeared. I tried to speak to the financial aid office, and they claimed I had low academics and no ECs. I had been accepted to the honors program also, so I knew they had all my information. I called around but kept leaving messages for staff that never called me back. I sent many emails. My parents could not get anywhere with them either. No one would call us back, no one would respond to emails. We double checked ApplyTexas and all my information was on there. I ended up having to walk away from the National Merit Scholarship (which from corporate level was small, but I had already set A&M as my top choice school) as well as from college this year. It was too late to apply to schools and get scholarships for fall. I am not sitting out.

I do not recommend this school. It is a bureaucratic mess. The administration is awful and will do nothing to correct their own mistakes. As my dad puts it, I guess I "dodged a bullet." If this is how bad they were just in awarding a scholarship they promised, imagine how the next four years would have been.

I recommend staying far far away from this school.I need to add that my SAT score was over 2200 but this site would not accept that score so I left that blank.
