    My review pertains to the Cell and Molecular Biology Graduate Program at The University of Texas at Austin. I had a bad experience there. In my opinion, the program did not care about students' progress or well being, and the program was more focused on obtaining results that could be published. I realize that in most places "getting the job done" has more importance than the well being of the people who are doing the job, but my experience at UT really took this distinction to a new extreme. I would only recommend going into the PhD program here if you are at the very top of the game in terms of doing research and working in philosophy, and you've had a lot of experience in research before enrolling. The Graduate Program accepted these people, as well as many other people, and I saw that people who were not at the extreme top of the game often were kept there in situations that did not benefit them.

    The best thing to do to succeed at UT is to get enough sleep for class because attending class is very important. Also, study within 1-2 weeks before an exam and do your homework on time. Office hours and tutoring at Sanger Learning Center have helped me get A's in some of my hardest classes.

    be prepared for the texas heat and be prepared to do a lot of walking. my first semester, i actually got a stress fracture on my foot from walking so much! get good shoes and learn the campus and you'll do fine.

    there are so many fields to choose from in the world, and ut offers a gateway into so many of these. many people complain about required classes outside their intended major, but use these as a chance to explore all the amazing opportunities out there. don't be afraid to change your major; the counselors are extremely helpful. check in with them regularly, as well as with your counselor in your department. keep them informed about what you want to do with your education in the future as these plans evolve so that they know how best to help you. get involved! there is a fair of university clubs and organizations that meets outside the gym at the beginning of every year. this will give you an opportunity to relax with people who share the same interests. just don't overbook yourself. i recommend just one or two clubs. they look good on scholarship applications, and it is even easy to start your own! to save money at this school, i recommend renting with friends, not staying in the dorms. austin is very bike-friendly, and the city and university bus system are free for students. beware of all the delicious food. even the cafeteria food in jester is good, so if you want to save, pack a lunch!
