    @GTAustin thanks! I am really worried about it. Also what other colleges would you recommend that I would have a good shot at??

    You might have a chance at A&M. Your verbal is at the 25th percentile but your math is at the 75th percentile, so your scores would be average for A&M. Not being in the top 10% will hurt you. Any other public university in Texas, you are competitive for admission. You might consider both UT Arlington and Texas Tech. I know they both have good engineering programs, so I would think they have good physics programs.

    You have a decent chance of getting in. There's also UTSA, Texas State, UNT, UT-Arlington, and University of Houston.

    Also I just checked my GPA is 3.3 not 3.1... UTD is my first choice.

    No. You want to get the applications done ASAP. For TAMU date of application is a factor and for UTD it's a factor for scholarship consideration.

    I'm not sure how much of a role the essay is going play in UTD admission. And I would think you will be fine with 5 AP classes. @Sai9999
