I have always liked it as well. I would like it even more if they would let me in  ;)

Not having residency appears to put you a huge disadvantage when applying to Texas.

It does, seeing as they can only take 20% out of state.

The limit's been raised to 35%, starting with this cycle.

OK Yeah, but it still has the same effect

although they raised the limit, the ppl at UT made it sound like they werent planning on enrolling 35% of nonresidents right away (they may take a few years to reach that level).

I don't think they are going to admit 35% non-residents this year for at least two reasons:

(1) The girl in the admissions office, when I called them to ask about the policy, went out of her way to say they COULD admit 35% now, but that doesn't mean they WOULD.

(2) If you look at LSN, Texas is quickly rejecting tons of people with good numbers even though their apps are down this cycle. I haven't checked the states of residence of all those people, but I'm willing to bet they aren't from Texas.
