I hate to jump in here as I'm a little off topic but here's the deal....
I was just admitted off the waitlist a few days ago but had standing plans to attend Northwestern. At the beginning of the cycle, UT was my first choice. Now I'm seeing UT and Northwestern as equals (although notably different).
I figure folks who have decided to attend UT are the best to poll for the major pros so if you have some thoughts please send me a PM (particularly if you faced a similar decision).
I'm a Californian so no in-state tuition to sway me.
Thanks in advance for any input
