your ECs and test scores are fine...but sadly it's the GPA that may kill your chances

getting into UT w/ out being in the top ten percent can be extremely hard...i would have a really good backup if i were you

thanks, and you bet i have backups...UT is closer to my reach list, along with calpoly san luis obispo, and the UC's
