The University of Texas at Arlington Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (36)
The school of business at UTA is ranked number 98 in the country over all. You will be challenged by good professors and fair work loads. You'll get a chance to team up with smart people who are generally working a full time job and going to school full time. I enjoyed my time there. I especially enjoyed the lower tuition and scholarships and federal assistance I was able to receive. I came out of school debt free. Uta helped me do that.
I was a full time student, working a full time job. I didn't spend a lot of time on campus. I'm currently not working in the field of my major.
Beautiful campus and a fun inclusive environment. Some professors are very involved in ensuring success. A few frustrations were struggles to get into needed classes and lack of parking.
I thoroughly enjoyed my college career. UTA was a great school, that was a great size and offered so much to its students. I highly recommend getting involved in a club, group or Greek life. It will make your experience even better.
Great nursing program. Diverse student body.
A very challenging school where I learned a lot. Average sized classes but teachers were more than happy to help students.
I graduated summa cum laude in the top 0.5% of my class and struggled for years to find employment. I have never used my degree and work now as a self-taught graphic designer. I earn a fairly substantial income doing this and didn't need to go to college at all. If I could go back, I would have gone to a trade school instead and learned a saleable vocation like graphic design. My best education has been on-the-job experience. I definitely value my background in the liberal arts, but I recommend such a degree as a past time only, and not as a gateway to a career.
Great school, great education, awesome facilities and great location- right between two large cities. Very happy with my college experience.
The University of Texas at Dallas offers rigorous study within the sciences. The humanities courses are not top tier, funding for these departments is woefully under-allocated. The business school is becoming a major draw for many noon-Dallas students and I think that is a good thing. Business school faculty is knowledgeable and experienced, look to see more UTD grads in positions of influence within industry and spreading those contacts within the School of Business. The sciences are exceedingly rigorous, if you plan to do pre-med, don't do any basic level core courses at UTD, transfer them in from community college instead. Overall, UTD offers excellent opportunities for upper classmen/women, but the first two years are essentially a big unjustifiable expense. Average loan debt burdens for class 2011 who completed all courses thru UTD exceeded 40,000usd. My program was close to 85,000.
Instructors are great, but the atmosphere was not condusive for me. I lived on campus in a brand new dorm, but since the school is a "commuter school" there was no campus life or school pride. The cafe served terrible food at the operating hours were horrible, so I ended up starving most days. The diversity is great, and there's a few fun things to do off campus, but not much. In my opinion.
