<p>Any information would be fantastic:)</p>


<p>if you are in state - yes. out of state - no.</p>

<p>Not definite for in-state. They use the top 8% rule.</p>

<p>Your math score might hurt your chances if applying to Business.</p>

<p>You have the top 10% class rank rule that is applicable to all Texas public universities that has been modifed with a cap for UTexas. Some refer to the modification as the 8% rule but that is not accurate. The way it works is this: under the 10% rule a Texas public university is required to give automatic admission to any in-state resident who is in the top 10% of his high school class regardless of SAT or ACT test score. UTexas stands alone as having a modication of that rule, It is required to admit 75% of those admitted using that rule but no more. Each year, before applications begin, UTexas is to announce the class rank percentage you need to fall within to be part of the 75% automatic admittees. For entry class of 2012, that percentage is top 9% (it was 8% for 2011 class but UTexas found that 8% was too small to actually reach the 75% figure and thus it is now 9%). As to the other 25% of those to be admitted, UTexas has no real restrictions, it can essentially admit anyone it wants.</p>

<p>The problem you face, even if you are in-state, is that you will be vying with thousands of others for that last 25% of those to be admitted and having high grades and high test scores assures nothing. You likely have a decent chance but there is no certainty.</p>

<p>^ Thanks for the more detailed explanation on the top X% Drusba.</p>
