    Make sure that you're okay with a big school like this. If you're wanting to stay instate, you should also tour UT Chattanooga. If UTK is too big for you, UTC will probably be just right. If even UTC is too big for you, then you should consider UT Martin.

    If you are interested in The University of Tennessee I would recommend you come. It is a great school. When making your decision, I would make sure the school offers the major you are looking to pursue. Make sure you enjoy this career path, because you will be spending a lot of time working and studying the subject. While your education should be your main goal when looking at colleges, be sure to look at what activites the school has to offer as well. The University of Tennessee has a lot of extracurricular activities to offer. For example, the University is a great sports campus. During the fall, most students look forward to tailgating and going to the football games on the weekends. Along with the sports, there is the TREC where you can play soccer, football, basketball,etc and work-out. Overall, not only can you get a great education, but the University has an abundance of opportunities for students.

    I highly advise prospective students to view the universities current freshman GPA & ACT score. This way you'll get a good idea of what you need to be admitted. Take the ACT more than once because UT super scores. You will need letters of recommendation to apply to the university so get those together in advance. Always check your email, visit campus if possible, and send them questions if needed!

    Choose this school based on the opportunities it presents to you. Coming from a long distance, this school has definitely been worth it. This is because of the opportunities. I love being part of the Air Force ROTC here, the best I could have chosen in my opinion. The athletics are great, and I particularly enjoy basketball season. Anyone can do anything. A negative is the price and the aging/construction on campus. This isn't so bad when you think of the great things that will come of it in the future, though, and the aging buildings are liveable, for the most part. The professors are above average, and keep a solid curriculum.
