    UT looks for well rounded students, not just at your GPA! If you’re looking to apply here I would definitely make sure to stay involved in highschool and try out different extracurricular activities and volunteering. I would also encourage you to go on a campus tour of the colleges you’re considering, or even some you’re not considering, before applying for colleges so that you can get a feel for what kind of campus atmosphere you’re looking for.

    Read up on the program you are interested in so you can prepare yourself to meet those goals. Visit the campus to see if you like the vibe. Work hard now so that way when you get to UT life isn't miserable (take that into whatever context you want -- for instance: housing, study habits, finances). Go to as many events as you can! There is always something going on and something is bound to interest you! Many different organizations put on events like dance-a-thons, speaker series, game night, professional help 101. Get out there are you will meet fascinating people and really use of all the resources that UT provides!

    Make sure to know who a Professor teaches their class. All Professors teach differently and you do not want to be stuck in class that you find hard to learn in. UT gives has many events and services that help you with academic, health, finances, and future careers. Also their events give out free food and stuff. Make sure you don't miss deadlines or start the day before. Start early so you don't rush to fix problems on your applications.

    Try to stay at least a day ahead. READ BEFORE CLASS! If you can't teach the material, then you don't know it.

    Plan on comfortable shoes and plenty of walking. Remember if you get the penthouse units at Dobie 2021 Guadalupe there are 500 stairs to the top, Elevators go out at least once a month. The pools are Las Vegas Style hotel size pools and very enticing during the warm weather which averages at 70 degrees year round.
