Major: PreMed and Medical (This Major's Salary over time)
I have an associates from Tarrant County College in Fort Worth. Now I see why there are all those crazy Aggie jokes out there. I am pre-med and have a 4.0GPA…I scored in the top 1% in the nation on an Anatomy exam. I had offers to Columbia, Drake, Westminster, etc. However they are out of state and can't afford the extra tuition even with a near 20k scholarship. I was hoping for a challenge. I had awesome profs at TCC in Fort Worth. Everyone is asking me why the devil (other words were used) did I move here. I thought: 1) I would be challenged 2) Beach nearby and can enjoy that during down time 3) Would have a great time by getting into a club. However, here comes the reality: 1) It is now three weeks into the semester and I am just now buying the books I need and there is a test next week in some classes, but it is okay because I feel like my IQ has lowered from sitting in class as they act like it is literally high school…no…scratch that, day care school. Homework is infinite amount of practices, some profs wear headphones walking into class (they are all nice at least though), things are multiple choice when I am used to essays and harder tests…so far all 100s and not even studied hardly at all 2) The profs barely can spell easy stuff like aluminum (hate to see them spell acetylcholine or pseudostratified columnar epithilium…seriously a chem prof spelled aluminum "alunim") 3) What is up with the lack of technology and all the darn skateboards…are they stuck in the 80s here… I was told I was from the future. I keep looking for positive outcomes but get shot down. I wanted to have a challenge…yeah right… I went to the tutor session to see if it was just me thinking it was just so easy and the tutor had no idea what they were talking about…he couldn't even tell you what hydronium was without looking at notes. I am miserable and hetting the heck out of dodge. I used to not even say "heck" but people curse left and right here. They literally teach with common language and not scientific terminology like "what makes an element happier, to gain 6 electrons or to have a loss of 2" which is so pathetic. Students are having trouble with basic nomenclature…really? Ughhh. I will get my As this semsester and save like crazy to be a senior transfer somewhere…that is how bad it is. DON'T COME HERE IF YOU WANT A CHALLENGE, BUT IF YOU LIKE SMILEY FACES ON YOUR PAPERS AND CANDY FOR SHOWING UP…then by all means come and be baby sitted.
