    The overall admit rate to UT CS is ~20%. For instate it's a little higher. A 1350 is below the average so admission is unlikely. Besides that your app looks great. Apply to UTD and A&M.

    Since you're not in the top 6% of your class, it will be tough, TBH.

    I can’t remember the exact score that was shown in the UTCS booklet.. but the average admitted or enrolled test score has been somewhere in mid 1400s so unfortunately you’re outside of the competitive range in general. my guess is that for non top 6% CS admitted averages would be between 1480-1600. Apply because you never know but definitely make sure you have some solid backups because you sound like an amazing candidate.
