You guys welcome back to my channel if you're ready Here. Specifically, you probably clicked on this video to know my thoughts on transferring universities, maybe even specifically about the University of Texas at Austin. I made a video how I got into my dream school, a University of Texas at Austin. So if you are curious about that type of stuff I willing back down below I don't want to make this too much of a video. I will stay out to Texas Tech University for my freshman and sophomore year of college, and it waas a really good experience. Ultimately, I had always had the dream of coming to the University of Texas at Austin, and I always strived to be very intelligent. I cared a lot about academics and also cared a lot about what my family thought of me and how smart I appeared to my family because my brother came here like 20 years ago, and then his wife as well came here. So it was just a president that I really wanted to live up to. So getting in here was really important to me on checking boxes of things that I wanted to fulfill in my own life. Once I started to really dive into creative pursuits and wanting to pursue things that were in creative rooms, I felt very limited. Thio maintain a 4.0, in order to transfer to you t. When I finally got the acceptance letter to u T. I was going through a really hard time last summer. I honestly did it really know what UT had to offer, but I was just glad that I didn't have to go back to Texas. Austin was one of my dream cities to live in, So I was really excited to finally get to live that dream over. All I want to say is that regardless of how my body reacted to the situation, I have to commend you t on the way they handle that because ever since the dean of students slash student conduct got involved, I have had so many last issues, and I have been able to genuinely enjoy my experience here. So I'm really thankful to you t for being protective off students lives slash their experiences. So that's just something that's really important to me as university to just zero tolerance for things like what I went through. Then once that was kind of handled, I began to get to really experience what you've had to offer. So definitely it's awesome that I got to network with my professors who have established their career and have made a lot of successes in their lifetime. It's just so valuable toe learn from these people, not only academics, but life experiences, and getting to network with them is really cool. So I took 15 to 16 hours at Texas Tech University and yet do not get me wrong. It is such a rigorous course load that I personally have only taken 12 hours a semester, which is pretty normal here. Yeah, and also the cost is this I don't think has to do with really UTI versus another university. I did transfer into the advertising school instead of staying in finance and marketing like it was in my old university, so that could have a lot to do with it. Austin has always been a city that I've dreamt of being in, and it's really cool to be in a hub that people that aren't in college want to come to us in any way. So at my old school I felt like I was more time than not surrounded by people that just didn't have the same vision as me. At UT there are a larger population of liberal people, a lot of artistic individuals and just people being more open minded. That was a really big dream of mine because I really wanted to be able to pick up the daily Texan from the newsstands that scattered throughout the university but also throughout different business establishments. A daily Texan is like one of a few university publications that still print five days a week on there, a lot of pull surprise of winners that come from the daily Texan. T so some downsides of transferring universities as a lot of people make their friends their freshman year of universities. I particularly honestly, was just going through a really hard time last year that when I did finally get to you, t I had to try to juggle a new school like losing a lot of friends, and I didn't want to make new friends. When you're only taking 12 hours a semester and you don't want to do summer school, I'm gonna be here for an extra year. So my major at Texas Tech was financed and marketing. So I extended my time here, basically, but I'm still monitoring in business at McComb's, so it works out because all those credits from Texas Tech will help me finish my minor here at U. T. And I was sitting here right now thinking I only had a year left of college. I'm honestly glad that I have two more years left because I feel like I didn't get enough time at UT. It's really cool because I used to get really sad thinking about going back to my other university just because it was so far. It's a really cool feeling Thio be where I love and to get to do what I love and to get to study where I've always loved. There are plenty of other people here on this platform and in real life that they just didn't get it right the first time. If you're watching this and you go to Texas tag? Don't think I'm like talking crap about the school. If you have any other questions about U. T. Or my transfer experience, definitely one check out the video down below how I got into my dream school. If you're curious about my life here at UT, I have a whole playlist. Dedicated it to the University of Texas until next time I will see you all in the next video.
