Why Do I Need an iSchool Account?
When you sign up for an iSchool account, you receive 150 MB of server space – you can transfer and/or store all sorts of files and websites that you can share with anyone online! You also receive 100 MB of email space (that’s 25 times what Yahoo offers), which you can access through UT’s webmail, or the email client of your choice. Additionally, some professors require you to use your iSchool server space to put your papers online. Also, your fees are paying for these services. You might as well take advantage of them!
