    the last time i checked was last semester and i was about 200/600..i should be higher now because of my 1st semester grades

    You might be offered the CAP summer program..your rank is very low and that is the most important factor for in-state students.

    yeah i wish i could take back 4 years of high school like a lot of us would. do you know how the special circumstances letter affects their decision? also is the CAP summer program just summer school at UT or the one year deal at one of the feeder schools(utsa, etc.)

    any more inputs guys? all comments welcome. thanks for your help guys

    I'm sorry...I meant to say just CAP...summer school option is an offer inbetween regular acceptance and CAP, which is 1 year at another UT branch.

    The rank might be a little problem. I believe you may get automatic acceptance if you have a 1350 on your SAT.
