I attended the University for three years after transferring from a nearby institution. I found the professors in my core classes to be engaging and helpful, and the professors of my major coursework helped me grow stronger in my academics. They really push you to succeed, which was very motivating for me. The financial aid at the University is also really good -- my last four semesters were paid for entirely with grants and scholarships.
The University of Texas at Austin, specifically the McCombs School of Business are both amazing. Austin is a great city to spend 4 years in and I loved that the campus was right in the heart of so much fun. The University of Texas has so many opportunities to find your place that it can be overwhelming at first, but once you find your solid groups it makes college better. I recommend taking the time to find clubs and groups that fit for you- do not force it but instead keep looking. While I made friends initially it did take me longer to get that solid friend group since I was one of the few students not from Texas. It can be hard to break into groups that are all high school friends or when you miss out on activities because every goes back to the same hometown on the weekend. It can take time, but worth it when you find your people. The program is very rigorous, but there can be some amazing professors. It was also quite a shock attending classes with hundreds of students- my entire high school was the size of some of these classes! That is when you need to be especially sure you make friends in class and get to know the professor and TAs at office hours so you do not get lost. Id recommend taking a couple core classes at community college during winter/summer break. Certain classes can be very time consuming so it can help with workload balance during the semesters. This is especially helpful if you are short on time trying to receive a major and a minor or had a delay with declaring. A McCombs degree goes a long way with recruiters since it is so highly valued and respected. The emphasis on recruiting resources and career services are great. The business school understands the goal is to get a great job after graduation and they bring lots of companies to campus giving plenty of opportunities to connect for internships and jobs. The University of Texas and McCombs have such fantastic reputations that people are always impressed. It is also the best to have such a huge network- Longhorns always help Longhorns and since there are so many of us you are likely able to find one another.
The University of Texas at Austin is an amazing school located in the amazing city of Austin, Texas that offers world-class events such as Austin City Limits Music Festival and the South by Southwest Festival. Schools such as the McCombs School of Business and the Moody College of Communication are highly-ranked nationally, and UTs alumni network spans 482,000+ that allows for a vast network after you graduate.
When my online class ended with no warning, the Extension office told me they wouldn't believe any screenshots I sent them to prove that their system didn't send me notifications. They refuse to give me the one month extension. Instead, they want me to pay for the whole class again just to finish the last lesson and final exam. The employees were rude and entirely unhelpful.

I personally love this school. The teachers and staff here are great and very friendly. The environment of the campus is very welcoming and there are a wide variety of people of here. The classes are very manageable and there are tons of recreational things to do around here and a ton of student sponsored activities. It's a very nice place to move to and start the beginning of your new life.
I would definitely recommend this university to any student and here are my reasons. Austin is so diverse that there's always a place for someone. UT has so many clubs, it's hard to pick which ones to join.
The professors I've had so far are all great and know exactly what they're doing. My advisers are always so helpful every time I have a question or problem. You get to meet people from all over the country and the world. The academic work is challenging but fair and you get the best quality of education for your money.
