  1. Thanks for the help everyone! I found out about UNT just through research. I originally really wanted to attend the University of Texas or Texas A&M. One thing about those two, is that they are expensive and are not the most generous universities with scholarships. And let's be honest, I am really not going into a field where the college matters. If I were majoring in accounting or finance, then maybe the extra $$ for UT would have been worth it if I was even accepted into McCombs School of Business. So I looked around Texas, and found many good colleges in Texas. Like a previous poster said, it would be worthless to get my tracking certification in New York, then come down to live and work here in Dallas. I looked around Texas, and I am also looking into other Texas publics, specifically Texas State in San Marcos and University of Houston. But of those, I think UNT is my favorite. This summer, I am going to fly down into DFW and not only take an official tour of UNT, but also tour UT, A&M, TX State, and UH. I think UNT is my top choice, but I just want to see if I really enjoy it or not before applying this fall. I visited Ohio State a few weeks ago, but while it was a very good school, Ohio just seemed like a very boring place outside of Columbus.
  2. Hello everyone! I am not sure if this is a good place to ask these questions, but if you can answer them, please answer. I am a high school student from New York who recently became a Mean Green fan. I would like to become a teacher in the Metroplex, and I think UNT may be my best option. UT Dallas doesn't seem as active as Denton and they don't have a football team, and SMU and TCU are way too expensive. In case you were wondering, I also did look at SUNY schools, but I do not want to have to go to 6 years of school, which the state of NY requires. Plus I think that a composite science certification from UNT will be better for job searching here in Texas. Anyways, here are my questions: 1. How are the on campus dorms? They seem nice, and I would like to at least live my freshman year on campus, if accepted. It doesn't seem UNT is a commuter school either, because a decent percentage of students do live on campus and Denton is a fun town. 2. How is on campus food? I would definately have to get the unlimited 7 day meal plan with Flex bucks if I attend here. 3. How are the education and science programs here in your opinion? 4. I did not see UNT on the list of colleges where students could get a discounted DART pass. I would definately like to be able to take DCTA and DART into Downtown Dallas. Does anyone know if the pass is discounted? Thanks for the help!
