Transfer applicant to UT Austin McCombs and Texas A&M University Mays

I currently finished my freshman year at the University of Texas at Dallas, and applied to transfer to both the University of Texas at Austin (McCombs) and Texas A&M University (Mays). I am currently a Finance and Economics double major. I called the office of admissions for both and they said that the most important thing and probably the only thing they look at for transfer applicants is GPA and relevance/challenge of classes taken in college, so that is what I will include in this.

Hours taken: 34
GPA: 3.94

Classes taken:

Business Basics (BA 1100): A+
Intro to Financial Accounting (ACCT 2301): A
Principles of Macroeconomics (ECON 2301): A-
Biological Basis of Health and Disease (BIOL 2350): A+
Principles of Microeconomics (ECON 2302): A-
Applied Calculus I (MATH 1325): A

Business and Public Law (BLAW 2301): A
Survey Oral & Tech Based Communication (COMM 1311): A+
American National Government (GOVT 2305): A
State and Local Government (GOVT 2306): A
US History Survey to Civil War (HIST 1301): A
Applied Calculus II (MATH 1326): A

Please let me know what my chances are to both these institutions. I appreciate all the help!

    I think to externally transfer last year to mccombs the average GPA was a 3.91. You look like you are in a good position to be accepted.
