A UT degree is a good degree.

The courses are difficult. Some professors care- others don't.

It's pretty difficult to find your place here, especially if you are a CNS student, but still want a life. All of the organizations are exclusive and difficult to join, unless you know someone from high school. Basically, if you come to a feeder school, you'll be fine, but if you don't good luck.
