    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    No Weeds, but Alcohol May Be Tolerable – I think drugs are available on campus, but scarcely so. Nobody cares if you store alcohol in your apartment, though.Good athletics program. Intramural sports available as well.

    Course highlights:

    It's Good to Have Your Own Space – Having your own space at a reasonable price is one of the best thing at UTD. Also, the place is pretty adequately furnished, with washer, dryer, fridge, cooker, etc.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Generous School – I am an international student and got a full-tuition scholarship with housing stipend. I only have to contribute a total of around $3000 a year towards my rent (dorm housing), meal plan of 14 meals a week, and adequate health insurance.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If someone is majoring in neuroscience then you have to take it. But I wouldn't recommend this class as an elective if you can avoid it. There is a lot information; I was typing about 8-9 pages of notes per class. And it is completely rote memorization of everything. The teacher is great. He makes the material really funny despite it being a dry subject. You'll stay awake in class but you'll be writing like crazy. The tests are pretty intense but if you memorize literally everything you'll do great. And he gives a lot of extra credit on the test too- enough to go up a while letter grade.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite thing about the class was the professor. This was the third class I had taken with him. He was a great teacher; he explained things really thoroughly and applied the information to real situations. Again, this class is based solely on memorization so you have to work really hard but it will pay off. I learned a couple hundred different chemicals, their categories, what they're used for, and how they're used in pharmaceuticals today.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is a class you absolutely have to review after every class. If you wait till the test to cram you'll probably fail. By test time, you'll have to memorize about 150 different chemicals and all about them. Its best not to cram this information. His tests are created to confuse you. So the earlier you start studying and memorizing, the better you'll do. And go to the review sessions- the TA's tend to be really helpful.
