u of t? u of texas or tennessee? i wouldn't see a problem with the 149 if you have a good explanation...in the end it all comes down to hard numbers, and a 166 seems solid at u of tennessee and if you're in-state you're a good bet at texas...well okay, maybe a toss up. they're getting picky.EDIT: i just realized what forum i was posting in. oops. disregard everything.
yes, you should apply. yes, you should write an addendum.
