I'm wondering which schools I'd have somewhat of a chance getting into. I'm mostly looking at Texas schools, just because of the instate tuition. I'd love to go to Baylor, which I'm sure I could get into, however the price is too high. And I'm in love with UT, but I'm not sure if they'd accept me.
Weighted GPA: 3.86/5.0
Top Quarter of my class (which is about 1000)
I have plenty of leadership and extracurricular activities, as well as work. If that even counts...
I'm also a Hispanic girl, which I don't know if being a minority really helps in admissions anymore?
***ANY tips would be helpful, i'm the first one in my family to be applying for colleges, so this is completely new to all of us.
I also am interested in either engineering or some sort of math field. perhaps even finance/economics. What do you guys suggest?
