Reach Higher has partnered to create a chatbot (Bo! ??) that will answer students’ questions about all things related to college. This is a free tool that is available 24/7 on the Better Make Room Facebook page and can answer unlimited questions about the FAFSA, the college application process, college life, and many more topics!
In order for your students to use the chatbot, just have them click "send message" to the Better Make Room Facebook page and ask their questions about college.

University of Texas Admissions
For Fall 2019 admission, The University of Texas at Austin will automatically admit eligible Texas students in the top 6 percent of their high school graduating class. This change to 6 percent is a result of the continued and future projected growth of high school graduates across the state.
