    Hi @jellybean5 ! Yes, DD also applied to TAMU and UT! I did have both threads bookmarked but there are so many updates that I just stopped following them! She was an academic admit at TAMU, and still in non-auto admid review at UT. I unbooked those threads because there are just too many to keep up! Barrett is one of her top 3 choices (Bama & SMU being the other 2) and is in RD process for 3 reach schools. Hope you get in Barrett!!!!

    It will be really helpful for next year's applicants if people post something about their stats (unweighted GPA and SAT/ACT) and whether or not OOS, and anything else they think is relevant.

    oops. here you go:

    not NMSF/NMF
    Barrett app completed 10/30 (waited on 2nd rec letter to upload)

    1 Letter: teacher rec (showed her in context of classroom & leadership)
    1 Letter: her Former volunteering supervisor rec (showed her in context of 3D/interesting person & teamwork/leadership)

    Numeric average: 90.2
    "Unweighted" GPA = Numeric GPA/25 (yes, it's an equation!) = 3.6
    Weighted 4.19

    Best single sittings:
    SAT 1510 ERW 730 / M 780 W 6-6-7
    ACT 33 E33 M 33 R 36 S 28 W9

    17 APs

    Title I school; OOS, Magnet high school
    Not ranked, but assigned as auto admit top 25% by TAMU, approx 110 in class
    Truly have no idea on class rank. I do know the class below hers a UW GPA 3.2 is top 30% FWIW.

    ASU: indicated actuary science as primary major

    Something I noticed on the portal. On the right side under "My Programs" is the blue "Barrett Honors College" drop-down. Below that two more drop-downs appeared that I do not remember seeing:
