“4th tier overpriced Safety school in nowheresville flyover land”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

If you want to pay 4 times the tuition that you'd pay at Oklahoma's flagship state schools in return for a diploma from a school that no one outside a 100 mile radius will have heard of, go for it. Say "OU" to someone in Manhattan or LA and at least they'll have heard of the Sooners and Anita Hill. If you say "TU," they might guess UT Austin or Tulane. When your school is in a city that's not recognized without saying the state, your money's better spent elsewhere if flyover land isn't where you want to stay.

Claims that TU's academics are outstanding don't get past US News' rankings. You're paying multiples more for a student body whose numbers are indistinguishable from OU and OSU but without brand recognition for your diploma. For this kind of money, at least get yourself in a city big enough for a major league team and direct flights.
