What impressed you positively?

"The students and faculty are GREAT!! Everyone seems really friendly and eager to introduce themselves to people. I felt totally welcome here. Also, I had heard that the weekly quizzes were hard and had become a burden to the students. However, this afternoon, one of the first year students told me that the deans had listened to their feedback and are dropping the quizzes (unless they improve the students' grade). It's nice to see a place that actually has administrators that listen to what students have to say. I really hope I get in here." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There is a lot more time spent in lecture the first two years than there is in the other Texas schools. But, classes aren't mandatory, for the most part, so you don't have to go if you already know the material. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Cost of living in San Antonio is way cheap compared to Houston and Dallas. Had I known that, I might have come down a day early to check out some housing in the area." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, the experience was very positive. This seems like a place where collaboration is highly valued. A couple of other schools in Texas (not mentioning any names) seem a lot more prone to cutthroat competition. I don't really care for that kind of academic environment, so I could totally see myself ending up at UTHSCSA and being very happy." Report Response
