    Going to the number 6 university in the /world/ for Computer Science, pretty close to home, for this tuition is definitely worth it.

    UT is an academically challenging school, and although it is expensive, it isn't nearly as expensive as some private schools in the state that have similar academic standards.

    Yes definitely! & there's a lot of scholarship opportunities for current students so that's a plus. Although living on campus is pricey, I feel as though it's worth it because of all of the commodities.

    When it comes to eating Austinite food make sure to not eat at the drug. A lot of the places are mediocre at best. The true delights for your taste buds will be located further downtown or on the waterfront.
