What's the most frustrating thing about your school?


The thing that frustrates me the most at my school is how difficult the classes are. My school is well known because of the tough curriculum the students are required to fulfill. It frustrates me because I went to a college prep school in high school and most of the alumni said the workload was the same in college as it was at my school, so I got excited because it was easy for me to make A?s in high school. But it was not as easy as I thought.


There was so much I wanted to do, and not enough time. I over-extended myself often, trying to take advantage of the many opportunities available.


Trinity now is trying to compete with Rice's natural science departments. Rice is its sister school, but unless you have had AP science courses do not plan to be prepared for science courses at Trinity. For example, the into chemistry class had 70% of the students withdraw. Few barely passed. A "C" grade is required for the course or it must be taken again. If you have to take a course again, you most likely will NOT be able to graduate with a degree in Chemistry.
