If you come from a decent high school andApr 18 2014Psychology
If you come from a decent high school and get great test scores, you will get in. Otherwise just write a kickass essay and meet with one of the admissions counselors and you might still have a good shot. UT admissions have become much more competitive recently.

I recommend students do the best they can inMay 30 2012Education
I recommend students do the best they can in high school before applying to colleges. It is a lot better and easier to put in the extra effort ahead of time and be prepared when applications roll around instead of scrambling for a ton of volunteer work to try to even out poor grades. If academics is not your strong point, be diverse in your activities. Join clubs, hold down a job, do an internship. Build skills that will serve you, your university, and your world. Colleges value academics, but they also value people who will benefit their communities and will uphold the values that they have placed for themselves. Show that you can meet and exceed expectations set for you.
