My experience at AC was great because of the people I met there. The friends I made, my on-campus job and some of my professors were truly worthwhile! However, the rigor, competition and outright favoritism of some professors make this school a challenge is your looking to compete in Pre-med. Overall, I've seen worse and better schools and ended up transferring for various reasons, but don't regret my time at AC.

Austin College takes academics very seriously and the classes can be very challenging. However, I was able to play football while attending and completed the pre-med prerequisites while majoring in psychology. Even though I was pre-med the whole way through, I decided to go to law school and the rigor of the Austin College classes has prepared me greatly for all the challenges that I have faced.
Everybody at Austin College genuinely seems to care about you. The access to a mentor throughout your college career was something that was unique to me. Having somebody who is there to guide you towards success is an incredible tool. While the college isn't perfect, I believe that it will only get better in the years to come under the current leadership.
