The University of Texas came to my school for career day and i was very pleased with the information. I asked all kinds of questions about my major which is criminal justice and was answered on the spot. I will be looking forward to attending the University of Texas and i am sure that you guys will be honered to have me!

I have already applied and been accepted for the 2010 Spring semester. I'm really excited, because not only is this a great school for business which is my intended major (marketing-specifically), but I graduated and live here in Austin, TX, so I can still live at home while attending college! Works out great. The campus is really nice. It is quite huge, and could be a little intimidating at time, but overall this school is an A+ :)

The school is HUGE. 360 acres. The campus is really nice though and it's right by the Drag. The dorm rooms are a little bit small (at least the ones that I stayed in) and a bit pricey but it's cheaper than an apartment and everything you'll ever need or want is within walking distance. Though I wouldn't recommend having a car there. The parking is through the roof and a bike is much more preferable.
