    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    UT Austin is a huge school with numerous things to do. You can never find yourself bored with the abundance of opportunities. They majority of the people here are very nice. Classes are challenging and will make you hit the books.

    Course highlights:

    Also in case of situation where there aren't people around there are little boxes that if pressed will immediacy dial the police. These boxes are placed at every block, so there are many all around campus.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    On campus is always bustling with life from students going to late night classes to just taking walks. This allows people to feel more secure since there are always other people around, so any inappropriate conduct is difficult to engage in.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The topics discussed in class cover recent advances in astrophysics. The professor is very engaging and the material exciting. Both the professor and the TA are knowledgeable and very willing to help you and explain any concept you need to better understand.

    Course highlights:

    an introduction into cosmology and cosmic structure formation; the physics of star formation and every thing from stellar structure and evolution to stellar death remnants and feedback

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely ask the TA for help on the problem sets and group projects. Don't be shy about it; you'll need his help. Show up to class: he gives pop quizzes and extra credit opportunities during class. Don't worry though, they are not at all meant to be difficult or trip you up.
