You need to worry about egress (outbound) and ingress (inbound)


modify weight if one router / local pref if more than one router (in your
network).. let's say weight cuz one router was all you had in your diagram.

set the weight really high on the t-3 session, and don't set
a weight on the t-1 provider so it uses the default route
of 0

router bgp 1
neighbor remote-as 1234
neighbor description T-3 ISP
neighbor weight 50000
neighbor remote-as 9999
neighbor description T-1 ISP


prepend the as-path a few times on the T-1 provider only. this will
make it look like more AS hops to your as via the T-1 provider.
Make sure the T-1 ISP ALLOWS this. Some don't.

router bgp 1
neighbor route-map prepend out

route-map prepend permit 10
set as-path prepend 1 1 1 1 1
