Had I not attended TCU, I am not sure that I ever would have been accepted in to dental school.  My personal relationship with the professors helped so greatly with my letter of recommendation and I was told that it was one of the best, letters they had ever reviewed.

TCU doesn't just give you the degree you need to move on, TCU gives its students an education and the promise that they will succeed.
