    If you reach the automatic admission threshold, then it becomes an admission safety (for the school, not necessarily your intended major). Otherwise, consider it a reach.

    Of course, you also need to be able to afford the net price to attend.

    You need a 1360 on the new SAT to gain Academic Admit status:

    Applicants qualify for automatic academic admission (but not necessarily to the major of choice), if they:

    successfully complete Texas A&M's required coursework, and rank in the top quarter of their graduating class on or before the application deadline, and meet test score minimums
    New SAT:
    Total score of at least a 1360 with at least:
    620 Math; and
    660 Evidence-Based Reading and Writing (EBRW)

    ACT:
    Composite score of at least 30 with at least:
    27 Math; and
    27 English

    If you don't get automatic admit thru test scores, it would be very difficult. TAMU doesn't consider race much but they will look T your EC, leadership ability, and essays. Try ACT?! Our son didn't do too well on SAT (1330) but got 36 on ACT English and Science and 34 composite.

    New SAT - 1150 - First test, gonna take another. For automatic admission I need 1300.

    Not sure where you are getting this from.

    Minimum is 1380 total, with at least 620 in Math and 660 in Reading. Please note that a 1280 (620+660), will not cut it because the total has to be at least 1380.

    However, once you get Academic Admit, your EC's and schedule rigor rating should be enough.
