"Great school, easy to apply and get into but a lot tougher to maintain your GPA and remain in school. Highly competitive but a great future prospect once you've graduated!"

"Program will continue to improve as the new building is introduced in 2017. space and facilities has been been the most limiting factor in making this program the best in the nation. As the evolution occurs count on McCombs to crack the top 10 nationally."

"After beginning at McCombs, it is evident that the program is challenging but has a number of resources to support the graduate program including great professors and a regimented study group protocol."

"Pros - Austin is a cultural hub, and the University of Texas at Austin both partakes in and contributes to the city's culture; the UT Alumni Network is vast and extremely helpful; the school's resources are excellent and the staff's first priority is ensuring each student's success both at UT and after graduating from UT. Cons - UT's MBA degree is top 15 in the nation, making it somewhat less valuable than top tier schools across the nation. However, given the price of the UT MBA, you definitely get your money's worth with this degree. Also, if you are planning to work anywhere in the South post-MBA, then UT's MBA degree has much more clout. This isn't a con as much as it is understanding the face and intrinsic value of the UT MBA."

"The University of Texas at Austin offers students an opportunity to take advantage of affordable education from a top tier institution. The city is wonderful. The environment is conducive to the pursuit of academia and the faculty is amazing. Overall, the University of Texas School of Law is an excellent institution and highly encourage anyone thinking of a future career in law to apply and schedule a visit with the Admissions Department. I had several offers from law schools in the top 14, and the University of Texas by far offered me the most money. So far, I am loving the city and the school's competitive yet welcoming environment."

"I have been thoroughly enjoying my first semester as an MBA candidate in the UT Austin Working Professionals MBA program in DFW. Some of the Pros: - Convenient schedule (Lectures every other weekend) - MBA+ Program with optional mentors and miniature consulting projects that allow indidivuals to experience different industries during a time in which they otherwise wouldn't be able to complete an internship. - Excellent, engaging faculty. Cons: - Financial Aid: There basically is none set aside for Working Professional students. Understandable but many of us still have loans from undergrad, which is likely why we couldn't put our careers on hold to pursue a full-time MBA."

"The McCombs School of Business provides great value for money in terms of the job opportunities available after completion of the program. The program is structured very well with robust concentrations and fellows programs that allow students to specialize in their areas of interest while gaining a solid foundation level business education. The facilities are not up to par with other top MBA programs and there are limited scholarship opportunities available which drive highly qualified admitted students to other universities. Overall it is a great program especially for those who intend to live in Texas post graduation."

" The McCombs School of Business is first-class business school, and I could not be happier with my decision to study here in Austin. The biggest asset for McCombs is its people, including both the students and the stuff. It is an extremely collaborative, helpful environment in which I always feel at home. McCombs excels in placing students in Consulting and Investment Banking jobs. However, what sometimes gets unnoticed is the unique fellows program offerings such as Venture, Board, and Marketing Fellows where students intern with local firms in those respective areas during the school year. Furthermore, one of the biggest attractions to Austin is the entrepreneurial scene. The Texas Venture Labs program gives students the opportunity to intern with a local startup and become a strategic consultant as they try to help the firm grow. Last but not least, Austin is an amazing city to live in. The cost of living is cheaper than most cities of its size, the weather is great year round, and there are countless things to do. Cons: The school is extremely behind in terms of granting scholarships. Very few students receive scholarships, and this causes the school to lose prospective students to rival schools. I am one of those students who could greatly benefit from some type of aid. My father lost his job soon after I started school, and my parents are struggling to make their house payment. I am in a difficult position in which I have already paid some tuition and do not want to forfeit my opportunity to get an MBA. With that said, if I am unable to get a scholarship, I will likely have to put this opportunity on hold. While loans are an option, the last thing my family needs is to incur more debt."
