I actually only spent a year at Tech, since in addition to the extra credit by exam, I did 12 hours during the summer sessions and 6 of those were at UT during the second summer session. I went to Tech at all because I graduated from high school a year early and didn't know immediately what I wanted to do from there. Back in the day, you could take all a senior year of courses during the summer at Lubbock Christian HS (2 semesters of senior English, Texas History and Gov't, US Gov't, and Old and New Testament). I did 10th and 11th grades at Coronado HS and then did the LCHS program during the summer following my junior year at Coronado.

The level of instruction at UT was considerably higher than at Tech.

Well, narny narny nar nar: I finished *RICE* in two and a half years. So there. But I currently live in Lubbock (health and family reasons). I attended law school at Tech and was in two different doctoral programs (EdD in Educational Technology, and interdisciplinary PhD in composition (music)). Lubbock feels like home to me, but I swear, some of the dumbest people I've ever met were in those programs. I kid thee not. *

My primary concerns about Lubbock are that (a) everyone I meet, with few exceptions, is a Christian, which nauseates me; and (b) there were (for example) 40 tornado warnings one afternoon last summer, in the general area. Tech is beautiful but I'm so afraid a bad tornado is going to sweep through here one day and wipe everyone--and everything--out.

* Example: A not-still-young woman with a TA in music theory pronounced the French word étude, E-tude, with a long E. This is incomprehensible to me. How could anyone do such a thing?? They must never have read Doestoevsky. It's like pronouncing "oui" as ooh-gee (something my second husband did and for which I promptly divorced him.) Good grief.

I suppose the name change from NTSU to UNT was meant to sound grander, if not more grandiose.
I got a masters from UNT. The only problem with the name is that they left the "C" out of it.

<<<sorry>>> <<<running and ducking>>>

But seriously, I thought UNT was a poor choice (made right after I graduated from there). So much temptation to make the dirty joke (my apolgoies, again).
