um, why don't u apply to some better schools... as "reach"... geez, my idiot cousins got into UC-Berkeley with much lower stats than you, and my ditzy lab partner got into UPenn, her stats/grades are also much lower than yours. With scores/stats like that, I'd take the $100+ gamble and go for HYPSM regular decision: maybe add Rice, Cornell, UPenn on your list. I think you'll get into every single school u listed, but i'm not admissions officer. good luck

I plan on majoring in business and all the schools I listed are top 10 in the country in that category, that's the main reason I am applying to all those schools. I doubt I would get into UPENN, but it would be awesome if I could go there since they are ranked #1 in undergrad business. What were the stats of your friend that got into UPENN?

Rich family, white
1310 SAT I
670 SAT II avg.
Rank 51/440

No leadership
No sports, no music, no fine arts
Lots of community service
Avg. essays (the cheesy type about homeless ppl, as if she would know)

Maybe she did the admissions officer a "favor" during her interview, I just don't understand it.

I am only answering for the UT Austin q. I think you would be a shoe-in for the Red McCombs School of Business. although you would have to compete with other tx residents who are not in the top 10% and out of state and intl students. You do know that if you apply to bus. u are classified as undecided business?
the average SAT scores for business students is a 1320. i have attended many sessions from the business school and have toured the school. it is awesome and probably the best school on the UT campus both academically and technologically. Great faculty and great diversity. (i wanted to major in business b4, thats why i know so much)

sorry about not being able to answer more.

Hook 'Em Horns!

I didn't know that if you applied business you would be classified as undecided business. UT Austin is my #1 choice because I grew up in TX. I live in FL right now and have lived here for 5 years, but my dad has lived in TX for 20 years, so can I claim TX residency when I apply since my dad still lives there? My major concern is my class rank, I know 50% of UT students are in the top 10% of their class, and I am only top 15%. On top of that, only 5% of UT students are out of state. Tell me more about the business school RamiroT, I would love to hear as much as you can tell me. Thanks.
