    For in-state (Texas) students, your admission to UT Austin is automatic if you rank within the top 6% of your high school class at graduation if you attend a public school. While getting into your major is not guaranteed, you can generally consider UT as a university that will offer you a solid chance of admission. For those outside the top 6% living in Texas, the admission rate drops off to only about 20 to 25%. However, since UT is one of the most applied-to schools in the country, you'll still have a solid chance of admission if your academic stats are within or higher than the middle 50% range at UT. If you're out of state, it's also fairly competitive. Being a Texas resident, I'm not entirely sure about the logistics of applying out-of-state, but I've heard it's considerably more difficult than in-state in general. If you're looking at UT Austin's Honors Programs, you generally want to be in the top few people in your high school class and scoring around the 98th percentile or higher on the SAT or ACT to have a decent shot of admission to Honors. Some Honors Programs are unbelievably competitive, notably Computer Science and McCombs Business, which have very high academic requirements for prospective Honors applicants. With all this in mind, set some personal goals and you'll surely be able to achieve what you need to and get admitted where you want to go, be that UT or elsewhere.

    UT looks for well rounded students, not just at your GPA! If you’re looking to apply here I would definitely make sure to stay involved in highschool and try out different extracurricular activities and volunteering. I would also encourage you to go on a campus tour of the colleges you’re considering, or even some you’re not considering, before applying for colleges so that you can get a feel for what kind of campus atmosphere you’re looking for.
