Question by Dotsrus: Can I get into Texas A&M or UT austin?
As I am about to send in my applications, I need to know if I stand a chance of getting into Texas A&M. If it helps, at A&M I am applying to the school of Geosciences and for a second choice major I am applying for Classical Archaeology in the College of Liberal Arts. Can you please chance me at both schools?
Lastly, during Junior year I had mono that caused me to be absent for 17 days of school(nearly had to repeat junior year). It dropped me from the top 15% of my class to the top 28%. In my guidance counselor’s letter of rec she included that bit of information. Will it have any affect on admissions, or does it extend out of the reach of “special circumstances”?
