    It's important to keep a balance between your academic life and your social life. You need to study hard to do well here, but remember to have a good time as well. There are many resources such as the University Writing Center and the Sanger Learning Center that assist struggling students. The TA's can also be very helpful in your studies. There are hundreds of student organizations on campus that you can join. There are fraternities, sororities, special interest clubs (such as gaming and radio), sports, and religious organizations. With thousands of people to talk to, it's not hard to enjoy a fulfilling social life at UT.

    Keep an open mind, the 40 acres is huge, but there is so much for you to get involved with. Don't overload yourself with activities, get a feel for classes and select a few clubs to be part of. Clubs are what you make them, you chose how much time you want to commit. Also, on-campus jobs are not difficult to find and they work with your school schedule.

    Get A's and B's in school. Become an officer of at least one club, and really focus on a couple of extracurriculars. UT does put a lot of emphasis on scores, but don't let that dissuade you from applying. I promise you, you have a chance of getting in even if you didn't get auto-admit (like me!) or if you went to an ultra-competitive school (again, also like me). The most important tip I can give is, learn how to study! It surprised me how many people told me that they didn't study in high school. I took 10 AP classes in HS and they really taught me how to prepare for exams.
