Texas A&M or UT Engineering, which is better?

So I’ve recently been admitted to both UT and A&M for engineering (chemical and general, but will most likely still go into chemical) and was wondering about everyone’s opinion on both schools. Which is better for engineering or STEM in general? Or does it even matter since they are both so closely ranked? Which one has more or better opportunities for students? How’s the school spirit at each? etc. I will say that A&M did offer me a little merit based aid and UT will most likely not since its known they are not very generous with that sort of thing. I honestly like both schools and plan to go to one or the other since I’m in state and the value just can’t be beat for either one. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!

You did not see the reply on your other thread?

The most obvious difference is the secondary admission to major process at Texas A&M.

Closing since there is another thread on the same topic.
