UT Austin is perfect for me. From the student life style to academics. UT Austin is one of my top 5 four year universities I would like to attend to. I would love to apply as soon as possible.

University of Texas at Austin is a really great school. Going there, I was a little nervous because the school is large and has a large number of freshman students, I didn't know if I would survive or get lost. However, I quickly figured there is no chance of getting lost because they do a very good job of personalizing the school environment and atmosphere for you. They have several layers of support, so many groups you can join and so many resources to tap into. They truly deserve the title "Public Ivy league," the school and it's system is ingenious.

Lots of students. Atmosphere is very social and fun with a twist of parties and academia. The University of Texas at Austin has top notch programs that compete nationally against the best colleges in the United States, so I would totally recommend going here. Extremely diverse with niches for everybody to fit in.
