Rice University vs. University of Texas at Austin for undergrad? (students, alumni, or parents please!)?0Carlyle2012-08-01 02:59:02
I am currently a junior in high school and in the top 1.8% of my class (8 out of 585) and my average is around 4.35. I know it's early to watch, but UT and rice are the two schools I am considering. I am a Longhorn and I bleed orange, and not just have a good honors program for biology, but is associated with the MD Anderson Cancer Center, where I would like to work if they were selected. Although education is first, I have many friends at UT, both parents and lots of cousins ​​was, and I am a triple legacy of a great brotherhood. I also love Austin. I'm on the rig in my school and I love the tradition of Texas, football, fraternities, field trips and excursions to the beach with friends. For housing, I love to go to Hardin House or DRS. There are plenty of attractive guys too (not the case with Rice, I hear) ;). I'm not a big partier and not drink at all, I am willing to work hard and stay up late. With a heavy dance program I'm used to it! I do not cheat on anything or you can be added (a lot of kids know how to do honors, which is annoying when a higher rank than hard workers). Rice is an hour away from home and offers an incredible education, in addition to a program of premedication with Baylor medical school, where I would go if they were admitted. Houston is a city too big, and my mother was able to complete their postgraduate courses. She went to UT for biology and AP Biology help me, who reads scientific journals every day for fun he would love to go there for the biology department strong and really want me to go, too. I do not like the lack of Greek life, sports team of mediocre (and guys .. just be honest! I care more about personality, though) and less than fierce mascot. It's cute, but because it reflects the intelligence and no style housing Hogwarts, and Quidditch, which is cool.However, I'm undecided, because incomes are different and I hear the classes are expensive. What I mean is, the rank and GPA are important, but they like, if you specialize in something. I'm in a group dance / exercise and auditions for the company of my study, so maybe that tell me? I visited the campus of the UT and Rice's visit later this week. Oh, and I heard during the week of owl that some hosts put the prospects of parties and drinking, which is a departure for someone who does not prefer that side. I want to have fun, so IOVE Austin and its many music festivals and peculiarities. So basically I have a trade off to have fun and really enjoy a good education, or having less fun and receive an amazing education. I know you both have great opportunities, but I just want an idea of ​​how nice it is and how well they felt they were taught. I might add, I hear Rice professors are much more care of their students and how they learn, but I have this from UT? Thank you very much in advance!

Ok so I'm 17 years old my average GPA is like 1.9 or 2.0 (I know its horrible) its not that i don't try in school i really do and I want to succeed but i just always manage to get horrible grades i also go to a very hard school but i know that's no excuse.

University is not for me? What do i do?0naina2012-09-01 04:32:03
Freshman who has failed the first semester. I've never really been a bad student he had always been a 3.0 student in high school ... maybe because my school did not require much effort. But that's the point . I find it hard to get excited about going to class every day and really studying . MedlinePlus I really have no other option and pick up a trade or transport (dad and brother - in-law are the truckers ) . Is this the way to go with my choices ? .... Think this would lead to some what brighter future ? ..... Or am I just being lazy and easily abandoned ?
University that Important?0steph2012-11-01 22:01:32
I am now at the stage of finishing my final school exams and off to uni, but see no point of going and giving my parents a new set of loans to worry about. I am going to uni to study business administration. I have been studying a similar course in school called IB Higer Level Business and Management. After learning it for four years, it seems pointless to me to go to uni and deepen my knowledge on the topics that i can already briefly understand. My dad owns a successful small business that I will be coming back after uni and managing. With no jobs in my future. It makes even less sense for me to go to uni. The only reason my parents want me to go is if I might something new that will help out in the family business (precious stone trade). Could someone help me understand why I should go. Would it be worthwhile in terms of cost effectiveness (not "time of your life" stuff like that. Cannot think about that in this economy.). Has anyone taken business admin before and tell me how it has helped them. I am really trying to convince myself to go as I know it will be a fun learning experience but I need you help figuring out why. Thanks in advance, Kavi
