UT Austin At First Glance

  • Chose this school because it was in my home state of Texas so it was nearby. He has good academics and is located in an amazing and fun city. In-state tuition is cheaper than private schools. It also has one of the top business schools and top engineering schools in the country. I took a college campus tour of the college and browsed various programs. I was automatically admitted because I was in the top 6% of my high school. High school ranking: 8 out of 188.UT Austin uses a Texas-based application that requires essays and lets you put in extracurricular activities. SAT score - 1550

  • COURSE CURRICULUM

    Most of it was fulfilled by my AP credits meaning I could graduate early if I wanted to. I think the course curriculum is good and covers a good selection of requirements to round out a student. There's a large selection of classes that all students should find interesting.

  • EXAMS

    I took 15 AP credits, all of which transferred over. This includes AP Calculus BC, AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Statistics, AP Physics, AP US Government, AP Literature, AP English Language, AP US History, AP Macroeconomics, etc. SAT Score - 1550. No required SAT Score. SAT 2: Math II- 800, Biology E/M- 760.

  • EXAMINATION STRUCTURE

    The exam structure is pretty good. Depending on the teacher, some teachers may be more lenient and offer curves whereas some teachers may be so strict on how many A's should be in the class that they curve down.

  • FACULTY

    Lots of amazing faculty and good people to reach out to. Certain teachers should be steered away from but there are plenty of really helpful and dedicated teachers. Some TA's don't know what they are doing, but in general, they are knowledgeable. College also offers very good counselors to help plan your academic path.

  • FEE STRUCTURE

    $5321 per semester for in-state applicants. Even if you are an international student (no permanent residency or citizenship), if you have stayed within Texas for a certain number of years prior to your application, you qualify for in-state tuition. In this case, you will not qualify for the international student scholarship. If you are paying out of state tuition and you are an international student, UT Austin offers one scholarship called the international student scholarship where UT offers essentially a full ride to the student.

  • ACCOMMODATION

    On-campus dorm. Chose it because it allowed me to familiarize myself with campus and my classes. An unlimited meal plan is included in housing and dorming. The food is decent. Loved how close the Gregory gym was. Challenges include the noise in the hallways during football season as I lived in the athletic dorm, San Jacinto.

  • PLACEMENT

    Lots of visiting companies. Austin is home to many booming companies such as Dell and they are always looking for job applicants and they highly regard UT Austin students. The average pay for the UT Austin undergraduate is around $53,000.

  • INTERNSHIP

    College does offer internship opportunities and on-campus jobs. Many on-campus jobs pay about 8.50 and do not require lots of work. This often means that you can study and do your homework on the job. As for the internships, I am about to pursue one this fall so I don't have any information regarding that section just yet.
