    For a public school cost, you have so much at an arm's reach disposal. However, be warned that the school does not give scholarships lightly.

    UT is fairly expensive, particularly for out of state students, and it doesn't offer a whole lot in the area of scholarships/financial aid. However, it is arguably the best public school in Texas, particularly for areas like engineering and business, so you get what you pay for. Definitely try to pick a major when applying though, because a lot of the money that doesn't come through UT as a school comes through individual colleges (like the College of Liberal Arts, or the College of Natural Sciences, or the College of Engineering, etc.).

    You aren't paying $50000 for tuition alone. Enough said.
