We know that Texas has an auto admit policy for (now) the top 7% of their HS students. It would be really helpful, especially to students looking for safety schools, if we could put together an updated list of schools with the criteria that qualifies for guaranteed admission. The last one I could find was from 2009 http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/college-search-selection/712961-what-schools-have-guaranteed-admission.html

For instance:
Texas A&M - still offers to top 10% in Texas
and to all applicants who
rank in the top quarter of their graduating class;
achieve a combined SAT Math and SAT Critical Reading score of at least 1300 with a test score of at least 600 in each of these components; or achieve a composite ACT score of at least 30 with a test score of at least 27 in ACT Math and ACT English (students must take the writing component of the SAT and/or ACT in order for the test score to be considered);
(this assumes they have all the required coursework)

Thanks in advance
