Ariel’s Take on Blinn
This is Ariel Johnson.
She just graduated from Texas A&M. This is what she had to say about Blinn:
“I enjoyed the small classes at Blinn.
When I went to school there, the classroom size was about 30 students, so you didn't feel
intimidated to answer a question in class or feel like you were inconveniencing the
professor when speaking with them after class.
I know that if students are looking for it as a gateway to A&M, it is an excellent
school. There's a very favorable percentage of acceptance to A&M from Blinn, because
admission staff at A&M and other universities are well aware of Blinn's curriculum. I
noticed classes there were a lot more difficult than ones taken at Howard College, so I
think they prepare students well for classes at the university level.
…whenever I attended, attendance was required. So, it definitely
taught me some good habits!
All of my classes transferred very easily too.
I took some of the more difficult classes….Some of these classes at universities are made a
lot more difficult for incoming freshman, so it was nice
to get those out of the
way in a smaller classroom setting.
Overall, I enjoyed going to school there. The classes there
definitely helped prep my study skills for A&M. ”
