getting into mccombs school of business

<p>i just finished my sophomore year of high school and am in the top 3.5% of my class. someone had told me that you have to be in a certain percent to get into mccombs. is that true? what do you have to do to get into mccombs? thank you!</p>

<p>Are you from TX? If so, if you're in the top 10% (next year 8% I believe) you're automatically admitted.</p>

<p>that is just for general admission not business school</p>

<p>Even though their website says they admit based on percentages, they don't anymore.</p>

<p>For example, I was in the top 3% of my class and I didn't get admitted.</p>

<p>My friend (same school) was in the top 27% of the class and got admitted.</p>

<p>Another friend of mine was top 8% and didn't get admitted either.</p>

<p>I even called them up as I was curious and they said that they weren't doing admittance based on rankings anymore.</p>

<p>If you go to a Texas school, the way admissions works is they start admitting people in the top 1%, then 2% and on until 75% of the class has been filled. They normally reach 75% at about the top 2%, so try to be within that to be safe.</p>

<p>thank you guys for all the info!</p>
