UT Austin CAP program requirements and eligibility?
Hi! I am currently a High school junior in Houston. I am starting to look at different universities to see where I want to go and I have decided that I want to stay in the state. My class rank is currently in the top 50% (it should go up in senior year) and I haven't taken the SAT yet but I will in march and I am trying really hard to get a high score on it. I know that my class rank won't get me into UT Austin but would I still be eligible for CAP? Because I would much rather go through the UT system to go to UT Austin rather than go to UH, but don't get me wrong, UH is a great school and I wouldn't mind going there but ideally I really want to go to UT Austin. I also know that through CAP, UT Austin only guarantees admission in the college of liberal arts which i'm not interested in. Also what GPA would I need to keep? I would love any other advice anyone has as well! Thanks!8 replies
