You're an AA female at one of their medians and above the other (even if only by a little) - you give them diversity AND help improve their medians. The fact that you got a full-ride tells the rest of us nothing - they would give you one even if they were heavily cutting scholarships.
On a separate note: congratulations! I hope you're applying to some higher-ranked schools as well. A full-ride at Texas must be hard to turn down, but you might get full-rides or serious $$$ from some of the t14.
Interesting. I feel like my numbers are awful, probably because I spend too much time on here...
Thanks! I am still hoping for a miracle in the form of an H or S acceptance. Anyone else worried about the portability of a degree from Texas?
I bet you'll get into multiple schools in the top 6.
