Maintain the Best GPA you can. Try to make a 1200 combined SAT or 26 ACT score. The University looks for the well-rounded, so respond in your application accordingly. UTD is Great for Pre-Med and Pre-Law prospectives!

    I'm so excited to attend in the fall! I love how the dorm rooms give each roommate their own room! The campus is pretty.

    UTD has met and surpassed my expectations. Originally I wasn't looking forward to coming here because I had dreamed about going in UT Austin, but when I actually began attending classes here my view changed. The campus is so much nicer than I had imagined and the education is up to par with a lot of other universities. It is currently working its way to being a tier one university.

    This college is expensive but worth the money. I have only had one bad professor out of about 25 on campus. Campus is excellent if you want to get into research.

    Great school for academics and living in a suburban area. There are no sports, so finding fun activities to do on the weekends are a little different than other schools. The campus is growing at a very fast pace and every semester there are new buildings and new landmarks on campus.

    If you are looking for a laid back, easy party school, then UTD is not for you. That being said, if you want to be challenged daily and learn amongst some of the smartest individuals and future leaders which only pushes you to want to better yourself...then you may want to stick around. UTD is definitely not easy, but it makes it that much more worth it in the end!!!

    UT Dallas is a place for students who get great education at a good price. I am glad that I accepted to go to UTD because of their overwhelming amount of care for their academics. UT Dallas is such a diverse school and there are so many opportunities to learn about different cultures.

    Fantastic school with a lot of student and educational opportunities. It's definitely a different change of pace, but this is normal with such a huge University. Professors are fantastic at teaching their subjects and TA's are more than helpful when it comes to struggling with the class.

    Administration is rarely helpful, but if you bug them enough, they will take action. Not what you'd call a typical college atmosphere with no 'strip' or 'drag' near campus. Very expensive school, but a good education.

    I absolutely love this campus. It's clean, it's modern, it's has THE aesthetic appeal of what you'd want your university to look like.

    The campus is academic based, there is no football team or stadium, and the school is smaller than other universities. The school is constantly growing and renovations and new buildings are being constructed (new A-Tech building looks really nice). The people there are friendly, there are a lot of help both financially and academically that are offered for students and the school it self wants each student to succeed rather than compete.
