    If you're at the top 4%, you're already an auto-admit student. I would say, based on your stats, your chances are very good for the CS department, but availability is limited. Apply early. Just in case, make sure you apply to Texas A&M as well (early). Their CS degree is just as good. CS is a VERY popular major at these schools.

    Other good safety schools that would pretty much assure you a CS spot are

    UT-Dallas

    University of Houston

    Texas Tech

    UT-Arlington

    Texas State

    UTSA
