So I'm in the top 10% of my class, do I get automatic admit into UT Austin?

I am in the top 10% of my class at a public high school in Texas. I read about A&M and they automatically accept top 10% grads. Does UT Austin do the same, because someone told me that if you apply to UTA for highly demanded major (engineering), they might reject you even if you're in the top 10%?

Something I never understood was this: Will A&M accept me guaranteed into the exact college I want (Chemical Engineering) because of the top 10% rule? Will UT Austin?
