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.

responseWow, my political views are moderate, Im black, and I just finished 4 years and got my degree from A&M. I have seen your kind before, you probably got to A&M and noticed how hard it was and decided to transfer out to Tech! Then when you got there decided hey I think Ill bash a school that was too good for me. Not everyone can be an Aggie buddy! Oh wait, and are you talking about the Raiders who threw red paint all over the quad where the Corps lives after we beat you'll in 04, yea I was a freshman in the Corps then and remember seeing such a display of down to earth people and friendlies!
commentYa, like the comment above me isnt fabricated…

Waahhh! A&M is too hard for me! I'll transfer to Tech instead!

I've met quite a few liberals at A&M so I don't buy your excuse. I was also at tceh before I transferred to A&M so I know first-hand that tceh is not as friendly.
responseAll the idiots that responded by attacking him have just served to prove his point.
