"My experience with the University of Texas at Austin has been amazing so far, they are the most supportive and welcoming university that I have ever been a part of. One of my greatest concerns with attending graduate school was the cost of attending. My program was able to offer me in-state tuition waivers granting me in-state tuition for my first year in grad school, and additional scholarships on top of that. They are more than willing to work with students to help them apply for scholarships and other forms of financial assistance like grants and work-study programs if need be. Not only are they supportive financially, but emotionally as well. The Social Work department has created the most nurturing and welcoming academic environment that I have ever been a part of. All of my professors teach us to be critical learners and they welcome difficult, and often sensitive comments and questions as a result. If there is one thing I would critique about my school, it is the lack of diversity. Most of my professors are White, as well as most of the students. They are not doing a very good job at representing minority students and they need to improve in this area if they would like to stay competitive. They are willing to talk to students about this issue, but until I see movement I am not going to be convinced. The last thing I would like to critique is the condition of the building and classrooms. UT is a large university and they don't seem to mind pouring money into things like the football team, or the business school. In our building, we are having to pick ants off of our clothes while we are in class, and it is not uncommon to see a cockroach from time to time. I would just love it if UT would consider giving the social work department some love and sprucing up our building. Overall, I am loving my experience at UT and I am beginning to feel more confident that when I leave, I will be adequately prepared to become a successful social worker."

"The pros are definitely the quality of education and faculty. The cons revolve around the level of financial support and workload."

"It has a lot of internships and reflection, which is necessary for people new to the field. If you have experience and background in psychology and social work, the classes will be a lot of review. Some adjunct professors are not as good as full time staff. They do offer lots do option so one can work and attend class."
