Considering the fact that UT and TAMU accept people in their top graduating class, I doubt that they will accept you as an incoming freshmen. However, both UT and TAMU have various ways of admission. UT, for instance, offers a program called CAP (Coordinated Admissions Program). This program consists of attending a different UT system university during your first year of college. However, UT sets some requirements to fulfill like: 30 hours and 3.2 GPA. If you meet the requirements, after the first year in college, you are automatically admitted to UT. So, you don't have to pay the application fee, write essays or compete with other people. TAMU offers a similar program; it's called PSA (Program for System Admission). Regardless, I suggest you still apply to UT, TAMU, and U of H. I am in the same position as you. I would rather apply to a university and get rejected than not apply at all. I hope my answer made sense. Still I encourage you to visit the their websites: UT: http://bealonghorn.utexas.edu/cap/admission/ TAMU: http://admissions.tamu.edu/PSA/default.aspx

You can call their office of admissions to ask about the SAT II part. You might want to get your reading section scores up a bit but other than that I think you okay. According to the collegeboard website the mid 50% of SAT scores for freshman in that school is: SAT Critical Reading: 640 - 750 SAT Math: 670 - 780 SAT Writing: 640 - 730

I have friends who attended the U of Houston-Honors Program where they did really well. They then transferred into Rice.

UT-Austin is probably a no-go, but A&M might be a possibility. If not, apply to Texas Tech before you apply to University of Houston. The location kinda sucks (Lubbock... ew), but the academics are a bit better.

Bennie Originally Answered: University of Texas Business vs. Texas A&M Engineering?
Always go for Engineering if you have the academic ability to complete the degree. An Engineer can always be a Businessman, but a Businessman rarely can be an Engineer. There are some Engineering degrees closer to Business. For example Industrial Engineering. (Texas A&M has this). There is a class of degree "halfway" between Engineering and Business called "BSTM–Technology Management or "BSIT–Industrial Technology." Some Texas colleges with this degree: Texas A&M–Kingsville Texas Southern U of Texas at Tyler ADDED [A High School graduate who gets his information by talking to neighbors writes] "Leaning towards doing engineering just for the sake of being able to keep medical school around as a future option is not really a good reason to consider engineering." WRONG AGAIN, (as usual): Actually Chemical Engineering is one of the best undergrad majors for pre-med. Not only does Chemical Engineering facilitate and duplicate many pre-med course, but also, if admission to Medical School does not happen, Chemical Engineering offers excellent career prospects. This spring, new Chem Engineering graduates are taking starting offers of $85k/yr (in the petroleum industry). Arts students who have never taken a real Science course should have nothing to say about Engineering or pre-med.

I would go to UT (assuming its Austin) because no matter which side of the fence I end up on, I would be going to a strong school for my studies. UT does have a very strong engineering program, as well as business. Also, being in Austin, I, as a student, would have all these potential internship opportunities at my door step because Austin is a large economic center for the state, for both business and most engineering fields. I could still apply for internal transfer into UT Engineering too. Texas A&M is a good school for both subjects, but if its the College Station campus, it might not have as much internship potential. And, there is no guarantee that A&M would let me change back into another engineering major when I'm already in the engineering school. Leaning towards doing engineering just for the sake of being able to keep medical school around as a future option is not really a good reason to consider engineering. I think it is better to choose something based on your skills and interest, not due to being able to keep a path that you aren't even sure if you would even want to walk on. So, I think you choose chemical (or whatever) engineering if you know you would like to do that field as a career. If you didn't have interest in the subject or engineering and you decided not to go to medical school, then you might just get lost in the future (career wise) Working in most engineering fields isn't "a walk in the park."
