That is the rub - Texas has been focused on Graduate programs not undergrad

When the series of Berzerkley cretins (preceded by little Willie Cunningham) took over, they wanted the UCLA footprint. Forget first and second years, focus on third and fourth years plus the grad schools. Graduate schools make up 20-25% of the 54,000 students.

They have made it very difficult for a student to graduate in four years. Classic example is freshman chemistry (aka kitchen chemistry). Two semester courses. In the fall, there are 5-6 classes averaging 300 per class. Stands to reason that 90%+ will pass and take the second course in the spring. In the spring, one class with 250 seats is offered.

Wealthy parents are now allowing their children to attend elite public schools until their senior year and then transferring them to schools that are 90% minority (usually Hispanic) to graduate because they are assured top 5% graduation ranking.
