| A college eductation is essential if you expect to be competitive in today's job market. Trust me, you won't get your foot in the door without it. What you realize after college though is that it's just the ante to play the game, a line on a resume competing with many other resumes. Have a plan/strategy for your college years that includes graduate or professional school. Study something that you like as an undergard but be disciplined enough to keep your grades up so that getting into a decent grad/professional program will be a viable option for you. You'll have many more options with an advanced degree from a top tier program than you will with one from a lesser school. Good luck! |

| Dr. Rakesh B Pherwani of Spring, Texas attended the University of Texas for undergraduate coursework. More information, if desired, can be found on his website www.rakesh-pherwani.abic-medical.com (http://www.rakesh-pherwani.abic-medical.com).|
The University of Texas is a school of opportunity. The climate and geography are very nice. Therefore, there are many resources both in the scholastic and extracurricular departments.
I have seen classmates fall into traps of losing the balance between coursework and outside interests. Be sure to follow the path that I did and be more dilligent with coursework. Find extracurricular activities that help augment your coursework rather than falling prey to the offender against high grades ("sex drugs and alcohol").
The hard work will pay off in the long run and you will actually enjoy your time in Austin and beyond much more.

| Let me start by admitting that my first semester at UT was not enjoyable. My parents forced me to attend a state school, and UT is without question the best university in the state academically. Because they made me, I made little to no effort to get involved in the campus and begged not to return second semester. I did, and I am so thankful now. As soon as I joined an organization (I joined a honors society and a spirit organization) my attitude totally changed. Do not let the massive size of this campus intimidate you. I have found myself here, and there is more of a campus community feeling than you would assume. |
