    You are required to have sufficient funds to cover your first year. Here is the form. The information and the form are on line in under UT Admissions, Undergraduate Admission, International Students.
    Financial Form

    This site has phone and fax numbers and an "email us" link for the admissions department.
    Contact Admissions

    By the way, when someone says UTA they usually mean U Texas Arlington. U Texas Austin is just called "UT."

    Well they will probably be looking at your test scores mainly, and they might not be good enough. A 1390 is good enough for instate most of the time, but for an international you would need to be 1400-1450 to have a good chance. Not to say that you don't have a chance, but your not going to be a shoe in.

    oh okk thanks........and hey ive already taken the SAT I twice. do u think its fine to take it one more time?? does it make a bad impression on the college that i had three shots?? boz im pretty sure i can get better scores next time. somewhere in the 2150+ range.

    I don't think it will give them a bad impression if you take it a third time. It would be worth a try, I think.

    They don't care how many times you take it, they will still use the highest score on any single test date.

    But it's hard to chance you without a class rank--in fact, it's pretty much impossible.

    oh okk thanks.........i really appreciate this

    I think you have a great chance of getting in. UT is really great, I'm sure you're going to like it a lot
