I am not in the Greek system, IQuite BrightFinance
I am not in the Greek system, I am not conservative, nor am I rich. However, I have met amazing people and learned so much and had the best time of my life. I hang with the Greeks sometimes too. My friends are from all different backgrounds and races. Great profs here, good business school. People that don't like this place just didn't try to make any friends and judge others by the Greek letters on their shirt. Don't listen to them, they are dumb and give people who go here a bad name. To be totally honest, I have found that people that sit around and complain about the Greeks piss me off more than the Greeks themselves ever could. If you are not a closed mouth pessimist, and want a good education and to meet people, come here.

Question
Honestly, I wouldn't go to TCU if IBrightPhysical Therapy/Exercise Science
Honestly, I wouldn't go to TCU if I could go back. This department is TINY. There are classes that everyone in the department must take that are only offered one section one semester. registration is a nightmare. I can't count how many times I've been told they only make exceptions for graduating seniors. Well I can't get there without taking the classes. Some faculty attempt to be helpful, but most don't understand. They especially don't understand the concept of working and going to school at the same time, so if you do that and try to block your classes accordingly good luck to you,because everything is one section one semester in this kinesiology department. Ohh and they let athletes and athletic trainers register before you (and guess what that's a lot of students with kinesiology majors) so good luck getting into classes.

Question
The academics here are great.BrightInterior Design
The academics here are great. The work is challenging but this school will probably get you where you want to go in life. Unfortunately for me this isn't enough for me to stay here. The social life is awful, the tuition is outrageous and continues to rise every year, there's no diversity, my student class is so incredibly stuck up and fake, and the football games are so early that no one ever goes. Oh and not to mention all the guys here have no respect for women and think they own the campus since the girl to guy ratio is 60% - 40%. I care about getting an education, but there are plenty of other places I can go to get a good education. That's why I will be transferring to the University of Texas next semester. If you do not plan on going Greek than do not go here. Girls can go to frat parties but you hardly ever find out about them if you're outside of the Greek bubble. Plus the frat party's suck because they are all sooo crowded and you can never get a drink and they ALWAYS end up busted. If you're not in a sorority, most girls who are won't be friends with you. Many girls this year did not receive bids since joining a sorority has become so competitive at TCU so good luck. Everyone told me that I would love TCU but I guess they just assumed because I?m an attractive blonde whose family has money. If you're down to earth and care about having the overall college experience, please save your money and go to a state school!
