    You have everything except the rank. You will be competing for only about 15% of the slots and because of that, you need to consider UT a reach. I do believe you would definitely be accepted to all other state engineering programs, so make sure you apply to some safeties. For UT, make sure your essays are good and try to stand out with them.
