Maintain the Best GPA you can. Try to make a 1200 combined SAT or 26 ACT score. The University looks for the well-rounded, so respond in your application accordingly. UTD is Great for Pre-Med and Pre-Law prospectives!

    Fantastic school with a lot of student and educational opportunities. It's definitely a different change of pace, but this is normal with such a huge University. Professors are fantastic at teaching their subjects and TA's are more than helpful when it comes to struggling with the class.

    Administration is rarely helpful, but if you bug them enough, they will take action. Not what you'd call a typical college atmosphere with no 'strip' or 'drag' near campus. Very expensive school, but a good education.

    I absolutely love this campus. It's clean, it's modern, it's has THE aesthetic appeal of what you'd want your university to look like.

    The campus is academic based, there is no football team or stadium, and the school is smaller than other universities. The school is constantly growing and renovations and new buildings are being constructed (new A-Tech building looks really nice). The people there are friendly, there are a lot of help both financially and academically that are offered for students and the school it self wants each student to succeed rather than compete.

    UT Dallas is a great school that embraces its unique qualities. The student body is fairly diverse and really down-to-earth. Professors at UTD are friendly and very approachable.

    Diverse student population. Professors are passionate, but not incredibly helpful outside of class. Courses offered are broad and interesting.

    This is a great school to come to if you really want to focus on your academics. There is not much of a night life, which can be a good thing if you get distracted too easily. The classes are well taught, and the students around you are generally pretty smart.

    The University is beautiful, along with more beautification projects coming that include more trees and more wonderful structures. Teachers are friendly and willing to take time out of their schedules to help you learn. The school regular hosts events that are free to students such as dances, poetry sessions, movie nights, and they usually have lots of free pizza.

    The university is very diverse with tons of things for students to be a part of and to have fun. Currently parts of the university are under construction, but that's okay because they're EXPANDING the size of the school and adding more buildings and more parking lots/garages to accommodate everyone. If I had to rate the university at all I'd give it a solid 10 because of the people, the professors, and the environment.

    The University of Texas at Dallas is a great school to attend. It is a smaller university, so it is much easier to get closer to your professor. I would recommend this school to anyone.
