" Being a Big 12 school I am familiar with them.

They are a very good program and I am very interested."

" I am looking for a school that can provide a great education of course. I want to major in Political Science and Law. Plus, I want a school that is diverse and has a great campus." said Baggs. "My parents would like me to try and stay in Texas, but I would really like to go away and out of state to go to college."
