A student angrily mentioned, "I was super excited to go to Tarleton at first! I was a transfer student from the local junior college. The first day I was confused about my schedule so I approached my teacher and asked for help and he simply told me to drop his class if I couldn't even figure out my schedule. At Tarleton they do not care about you, you are simply a number not a face. They just want your money and did not have many programs helping transfer students get acclimated to the new school. I was planning on getting my BSN there but the teachers are subpar and not very willing to help. I am choosing to take my education else where and I am extremely disappointed with my experience. I have attended one semester and the whole time I have been there it has been the most frustrating experience ever. Would not recommend. If I could give them 0 stars I would."

NO."
