Chances of admission to UT Austin as a transfer?

Hi everyone!I am currently majoring in Civil Engineering at a university not in Texas. I am beginning my transfer app for UT Austin & TAMU and was wondering several things:1. What is a good GPA to have if I am aiming to transfer as a civil major?2.For general admission, everything is considered (gpa, essays, etc.), but what does the Cockrell School of Engineering actually look at to decide whether or not to admit me as a civil major? Same question for TAMU.3. If I am given general admission, but not admitted as a civil, would it be a good idea to choose another somewhat-related major while I work on improving my GPA or whatever they might not have liked in my app or essays and then apply again but as internal transfer? This way at least i am at the university.4. I have gotten A's and B's for most of my classes, however this last semester I got a D for one of my engineering courses, but I am retaking it next semester. How big of an impact will this have on my chances of getting in?Current GPA: 3.58Total Credits:75GPA credits: 45Classification: Sophomore (I just finished up my third semester, will begin my fourth in the spring)Also, are there any other good universities I should consider in Texas with a civil engineering program? Thanks! :D
