|Students who got into UT say:|
Essay (11) |
I had about a 3.0 GPA but an ACT score of 27 (with some work experience, a few extracurricular activities, and some volunteering to put on the application). I forget exactly how or why I started receiving emails from them, but somehow I expressed interest somewhere and they (by email) offered me the "Spartan fast track" application, in which the application fee, the essay, and the letter of recommendation was waived and made applying (online) very easy. I applied very early (September) and was accepted pretty early. I don't think they're a university who will take anyone within reason, but if you have a good GPA or good exam grades it shouldn't be too hard to get in.

| Sep 11 2010 | I think this school really looks for potential, and they just want to get to know you during the admissions process. If you tell them where you want to be in ten years, or experiences that have changed you for the better, things like that, they really take it seriously. Although grades are obviously important, they don't just focus solely on that, they want to see you and know that you have potential. Although the university isn't particulary difficult to get in, I had above a 3.0, 1200 SAT scores, and lots of extra curriculars. And the way i see it, the higher your grades the better opportunity one may have to get more scholarship money, so why settle? it's easy as pie to get in. i had a 970 SAT and stellar grades.
