I now stay home with 3 children, butCommunications
I now stay home with 3 children, but always valued my degree when in the work force. I never worked in the DFW metroplex area or even in the state of TX, yet even in the midwest, the TCU name evoked a positive response. The staff was warm and supportive. The size was to me, just perfect. I never joined a sorority and never had a shortage of dates or friends. It was a tough adjustment at first, being 1,000 miles from home, but was a wonderful enviornment. I had some very tramatic things happen while their, but got good counseling and was able to work with campus police to make a few adjustments for campus-wide safety.

Try to maintain perpspective when evaluating this or any other comments regarding TCU or any other school. It is a tough decision, but worth the effort of research.Go Frogs. Riff Ram Bah Zoo!

Question
TCU rocked.Super BrilliantPreMed and Medical
TCU rocked. I walked in knowing it was going to be a challenge and worked hard. You really dont get much respect there until you prove yourself. It is hard to break into the social system if youre not in a fraternity. But...I dated many girls who could have been (and some who were) runway models. Be prepared to get a job if you are not going to the school with money, because you are going to need good clothes and a nice car to fit in. Buy a used BMW and fix it up with a summer job before going.

The pre med program was tough. 250 students are premeds freshman year. I was one of 43 to get into medical school...but I got into my first choice.

If you are a lazy bastard and poor, this is not the place to go. If on the other hand you are either rich and lazy or poor and industrious...Look no further.

If youre rich and industrious.....Go to Rice.
