    Thanks to current state laws, if you do not graduate in the top 10% of your class, in Texas, it is really hard to get into UT. What you might consider is taking your freshman year at one of the UT campuses in another city, San Antonio, Arlington, etc. (there are several more cities.) Then, if you maintain excellent grades, you can make a case for transferring to the Austin campus as a sophomore. Talk to the alternative schools about your plans, they are bound to have tips that are helpful, they do feed many students back to Austin.By all means, apply to UT Austin and give it your best shot, but as a back up, apply to the other schools as well.In the meantime, visit all the campuses. Make appointments to see the Dean or Associate Dean in those two departments and try to impress them with what an asset you would be to their programs. (Wouldn’t hurt if you had a couple of short examples of your writing, plus any reprints of anything you may have had published.)If you have family or friends who are alums from either of those departments, ask them to write you letters of recommendation. If you have any connections to well known or respected people in either of those fields, ask them for letters of recommendation. Network your socks off, it could pay off. And even if it doesn’t this first go around, you will have learned a valuable life skill.Good-luck.
