TCU vs. TWU can anyone tell me differences and similarities? PLEASE?

  1. I am planning on attending either TCU or TWU when I graduate. I have looked at this page and both web sites to collect information on both but I wondered if anyone had any opinions or facts they could share with me? Cost of program, differences in class size, personal impressions, anything at all. Please help. :imbar

    TWU:
    -Larger class size
    -slightly cheaper

    TCU:
    -smaller class size
    -more expensive

    That's really all it boils down to. But you can pm me if you want. I was accepted to both and chose TWU because it was a better fit for me.
    Good Luck!

    JimmyMallo,

    I'm sure by now that you've had some advice from those who have sent you a PM. This is what I have to offer:

    I presently attend TCU, and have several friends who attend TWU, and constantly compare "notes" with each other (note literal academic notes, but notes about each of our programs). You basically can't go wrong either way you go. I LOVE TCU, and those who attend TWU love their academic rearing as well. The decision-making for you is going to be determined by factors such as specific clinical sites, and what's the best for you and your life. Financially, I know that when we started, tuition was fairly close, with TCU being slightly more expensive. I do not know if this is still true. Academically, we (TCU/TWU) have paralleled each other with the knowledge gained. The faculty here at TCU is wonderful, personable, and supportive!

    I hope this helps. If you have any more questions, or want a more specific answer, you are welcome to PM me or put it on the post. Good luck in your journey!!!

    well, to tell you the truth I don't think anyone is going to post anything to sway you either way becuase that has happend before and no one wants to start a fight (including me). its hard to state any real facts yet as TCU is brand new and TWU is under new mngmt.. and I mean ANY real facts. personal impressions are another thing. there have been pleanty of "personal impression floating around. but all that will do is cause you to become bias based on impression. only one sure thing is true no matter which you choose. you will be in debt.
