Guys, I’m so happy that registration is now open! I can’t wait for camp #fc13 #classof17 #tamu #aggie #awesome
I love my school because they do things that have never been done before.
ALWAYS apply early when in doubt. Early is always better for filling slots and for making sure your stuff gets to them on time. YES APPLY EARLY.
Yep, BIMS is hard. And, yes, I think ANSC is a bit less-hard. Not in a bad way, just in a requires-less-hard-science sort of way (You’ll find when you get here that BIMS and ANSC can be kind of competitive, and I’m not trying to put anyone down! I have tons of respect for ANSC majors, I promise!)
I’ve met plenty of BIMS majors who do well without tutoring (my roommate and I do pretty well on our own—but we’re both really good at science) so I hope that doesn’t scare anyone off. But if you have to go to tutoring, that is NOT a bad thing, so if you’re up for it you can learn a lot through the program.
If I had it to do over again, I would still choose BIMS. I’m graduating Friday, and I think my degree has gotten me where I wanted to go. I’m going to be starting vet school in August, and I feel like I’m prepared. But, I think lots of other people feel the same way about their majors, whatever they are!
And if anybody has questions about the vet school application—I’ve been there. It really sucks, I know. If you have anything you want to ask me, please do!
Howdy, Melodie, and congratulations on making it into A&M!
I can tell you a little bit about BIMS versus Animal Science, but of course I am not on the admissions board and don’t have any special insider info, so everything I say is based on my personal observations. This is going to be a little long-winded, so I put it under a cut to save the non-pre-vet people from the text!
It’s a gorgeous day and I’m going to miss this place over the summer.
It’s official - the new Kyle Field. 102,000 seats (largest in Texas and the SEC), twelve of which will remain empty to honor the 12 students who died in the 1999 Bonfire collapse. A lower field level to increase crowd noise. Overhangs on the east and west deck. A larger statue of E. King Gill.
Gig ‘Em, Ags.
Thanks again! :)
Okay guys, after the flurry of posts last night I have gone back and tagged everything. If you want to use Tumblr Savior to avoid any advice or asks, I will tag all inbox posts with “ask” and relevant posts as “advice.”
I have also created a “Frequently Asked Questions” page if you want a quick answer to a question I get a lot or is a common concern. I would appreciate if you would glance through it before sending me an ask, though if your question is not answered on it, DO NOT hesitate to ask me. :)
If there is anything else I can do for y’all, please let me know! Thanks, and gig ‘em!
