I transferred into this huge school and became lost in its hugeness. Professors were hot or miss. Many of my professors were unapproachable because of the size of the classes and/or their involvement in research. Some of them were just not good teachers. TAs were plenty but they were poorly trained. Some professors were okay.

Grading standards seems arbitrary at times.

Drinking was prevalent.

I would not transfer into this school. It was easy to get lost and there was little support for transfer students when I was enrolled.

responseUhm, really? Did you miss the entire TSPA program they push on you? My transfer adviser was available both years I was there.
