My S is a Junior and is interested in going to McCombs or Mays(TAMU). His current rank is about the top 4-5% of his class. Its hard to tell what it will do in the next semester. From what I understand it usually takes being in the top 3% to get automatic admission to McCombs. I'm wondering if it is possible for a freshman to get admitted if they aren't in the top 3% of their class or even if that 3% number is accurate. I tried to look this up on the web site but either I didn't look in the right place or they don't state it all that clearly. Thanks for the information!
