Overall Experience: UTD is a phenomenal institution, it simply wasn't my first choice. This is what has influenced my occasional unhappiness. But I'm glad I do attend this school and I especially appreciate it for its commitment to help pre-med students with its incomparable Health Professionals Advisory Center.

Overall Experience: I don't know if I was being optimistic or just plain stupid, but I thought after my abysmal undergraduate experience, with all the changes at UTD over the last decade, graduate school would be better. Nope. The biggest mistake I ever made in my life was starting undergrad at UTD. The second biggest was wasting $38,000 and a year and a half of my life getting what passes for a master's degree in the School of Management.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UTD doesn't get enough credit; it's a fantastic school and one of the few schools in Texas that offers a bachelors in neuroscience. The only cons are high tuition, lack of parking, and the constant construction. Use RateMyProfessor to research which professors to take for certain classes; there's an 80% chance their profile is on that website. The campus is a decent size; it may take about 10-15 minutes to walk from one end to the other (longboards and bikes permitted). Check it out; it's a great school!

Overall Experience: The cost of tuition is way too high. UTD keeps building new building and charging the students extra for it even if they did not use the new buildings. Professors are okay, some seem caring while others are not organized. People here are less sociable and only care about studying.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

UT Dallas isn't all about academics: Its coursework isn't the heaviest of the region; professors are lenient on students at times; and there are few reasons to pull more than three all-nighters a semester. Neither is it a party school where the frats rule campus, nor an athlete's school of big games or a cultural center of arts and literature. It is a little bit of everything. In fact, UTD is so hard to define that many students struggle at first to identify with it. They once dreamed of the Ivies, Rice, or UT Austin, then either failed or could not afford the education, and "ended up" at UTD. And yet, a vast majority of students say they would still choose UTD were they to do it again—more than 80 percent returns every year. Strange as it seems, the mysterious appeal that is UT Dallas eventually touches students' hearts and souls.

If one takes some time to think about it, UT Dallas has always been amazing, if not extraordinary, throughout its history. The face of the campus changes constantly, with new buildings, renovations, and expansions, many of which are fueled by student activities. After all, the hidden connection that begins to bond UTD students and faculty together probably isn't academic rigor, financial aid, or aesthetic qualities, but a burning aspiration for and determined will to change—for the better, that is. How this journey will end—or whether it will end at all—no one can tell. Nevertheless, at this moment, the belief is strong that UTD, as well as its members, will succeed in its mission to shatter the status quo.
