| It is a serious minded atmosphere. As I recall a comment I read previously it stated that "A&M was cut-throat and has a corporate atmosphere". I must agree. It is very competitive. This takes making friends to a whole new level. These people become merely accquaintances. I am not saying making friends is hard, but the serious student won't spend every weekend at North Gate. It is a professional environment that requires serious minded thinkers. A&M is known with national engineering and business powerhouses and usually where all the elite students of Texas come to get their degree. The pay is beyond satisfying after graduation. Other than that, I love A&M. I love the athletics and traditions. There is no other place I would rather be. If I could do it all over again, I would. A&M is where its at! |

| This university is big enough to have whatever you need. Ask other students about best teachers, classes that will fit your style. There is something for everyone. |

| I attened Texas A&M University for one semester in the pre-law program and found the course work was not nearly as challenging as I had anticipated. |
That's not the reason I transfered though. I hated the small minded people at A&M and in College Station. While I generally fit the A&M norm, I felt like an outsider because while the vast majority of the student body is conservative, I'd consider myself an idependent leaning towards several liveral viewpoints. Students could get downright mean when I minimally expressed my "liberal" viewpoints to counter their ultra-conservative views.
Students, faculty and alumni at Texas A&M love to bash on everything non-Aggy. Texas A&M is built on an inferiority complex towards the University of Texas and love nothing more than beating Texas once in a blue moon to prove that they are the better state school. And while built on such an inferiority complex, Aggies hold their nose above Texas Tech University. Quite frankly, they are mean and nasty to the Red Raider and mock anyone who chooses to attend that school calling it a community college or the world's biggest community college. Oh the irony!In conclusion, it was the people that made A&M that encouraged me to transfer. I was a little nervous from the things Aggies led me to believe about Texas Tech, but I transfered there anyway to get away from A&M and have been blown away. Texas Tech is a much more down-to-earth school with friendlier people. I am much happier at Tech and I have found the pre-law program here to be more challenging. Although A&M dubbs Tech the "Red Headed Step Child of Texas Schhols", I highly recomend it or Texas over A&M if you're not an ultra-conservative, non-white or non-Christian.
