"This program is very well structured to get the best out of its Agribusiness students. Various topics allowing each student to learn critical thinking skills in real world situations."

"I believe that Mays does a wonderful job of giving us the best classes to apply to our futures. The most impressive thing about Mays Business School is the help they provide in finding a job once you are done with school. The only problem can be workload for certain classes that don't feel as necessary to others. Also, a lot of professors are difficult to understand due to a lot of foreign professors coming in order to do research."

"There are few professors that really seem to care about the students. The politics behind how the program runs are insane and often unfairly effects the students. However, if a student is motivated to learn, the resources are there. The social life in College Station is almost nonexistent so do not apply if you expect an exciting social atmosphere. However, College Station is very cheap in comparison to other university towns."

"I think this program is extremely unique in that the professors are invested in how well you do. They want to see you succeed, and the program still maintains its competitiveness among other colleges. The program also does a great job of really bonding the class as a whole, so you already have a support system built in on the first day of classes. The professors and faculty are all willing to work with you and help you become as successful as you can be, and they are willing to go the extra mile to help you find a job after graduation. The atmosphere is exactly what you would expect from Texas A&M University - warm, friendly, competitive, and helpful. We truly are like a family."

"Texas A&M is a great place to get your graduate degree because of the family like atmosphere that they create. The Civil Engineering program is rather small and so there is a very personal feel about the education. The only cons are that it is such a large school with so many professors doing so many things that sometimes it feels like you can get lost in the crowd if you don't set yourself apart somehow."

"I'm a student in the Bush School of Government and Public Service at A&M. The level of the faculty and staff is outstanding, and each is distinguished in their field. The career and leadership program staff are fantastic, and the faculty go out of their way to help you find internships and jobs, too. The only negative comment I could possibly make about the Bush School is that outside the typical research assistant slots, there aren't a lot of financial aid opportunities."

"Great program. Best for network. Better for fresh undergrad graduates as this is what the program is designed for and the culture has been. But returning students will benefit from the program as I am atypical at 28 yrs old."

"I am a new graduate student at Texas A&M University. I like the university very much so far. The only thing is that tuition fees are high, and there is a little chance to get financial aid."

"The MS in Marketing Program at Texas A&M University is wonderful. The faculty truly care about you as a student and do everything they can to help you grow and be successful in business. The xlasses are not onlky interesting, but useful, and the Aggie network is second-to-none."

  • Degree: Law
"The pros of this program were: 1) reasonable size of classes 2) availability of faculty and staff 3) law library extended hours (i.e. open midnight most nights) 4) faculty level of knowledge and their willingness to share this knowledge with students. The cons of the program were: 1) last reading assignments are taught too closely to final exam period. However, the material covered on final exam is fairly proportional to time spent on it during the semester 2) No in house food service. However, school did make great efforts to accommodate by scheduling food trucks and student food discounts."

"Being that it is such a large university, when taking a class with more than 20 people, you tend to have a TA, who is often times hard to get in touch with, or the professor themselves is very hard to get in touch with. I also recognize that technology is a huge part of our lives now, however, I feel that technology is a little overused here by some professors, and the personal touch of an education in-class is lost."

"The Counseling program at Texas A&M University is a great program where we can learn and enjoy the material being taught. One of the disadvantages of this program is that is a 60 hour program, however it will open up more doors at the end of the path."

"The veterinary program is very challenging with little free time, but the support we are given by the faculty and clinicians is commendable. They really care about our success. We are treated as future colleagues and not just students."

  • Degree: Liberal Studies
"One of the best things about Texas A&M is the large number of faculty members who are authors of the required/recommended textbooks for a given course. I am confident in each of my faculty members knowledge of any given topic. In addition, each Aggie and the Aggie Network are there to help students succeed. Someone is always available to help. This can make it challenging for students to even get into a graduate program. I am not a fan of the GRE as a measure of a student intellectual status or capabilities. I think there should be higher thought into individual aspects of a student than his/her GPA and GRE. They are important, but not a deciding factor."

"The pros are that the faculty and staff are generally friendly and supportive, and the student body tends to be laid-back and friendly. The education itself is challenging and of great quality for a very affordable price. The campus is very safe and there are many police patrolling around college station. The cons are that there is not much to do in college station, and for the liberal people, college station is generally conservative."
