The admission season for Class of 2013 is coming and I think it's my responsibility to introduce you to The University of Texas at Dallas, often called UTD or UT-Dallas. For those who do not know me, I deferred Colgate, Lafayette, and WPI (Lafayette and Colgate gave me full need; WPI gave 82% but that's virtually the highest aid they could afford for an International student) and several other schools to go to UTD, although UTD's ranking on USNews is strikingly low.
IMO, UT-Dallas is truly a "hidden gem". The university is very young (our undergraduate program was established in 1990), has lots of potential, and offers generous merit-based scholarships. My estimated contribution to attend UTD is about $6,000/year, without any on-campus job and loan.
Because Vietabroader's text editor is a little limited, I created a separate website dedicated to UTD at this address:
For those who are uncertain about UTD's quality, please check out this "Facts & Figures" page first:
If you have any questions, either post them here or contact me directly:
Thank you for your attention and good luck with your application!
