Have you looked closely at the numbers? It just doesn't make sense for a Texan to go out of state unless someone else is paying...Is there any possible advice to convince OOS schools that I truly do want to leave Texas?
I'd say most on your reach and super-reach list are such a stretch as to be useless due to GPA, Texas state of residence and in some cases, being OOS applying to schools such as UCals, Utah and Colorado. I'd apply to your low/in-state list and maybe add Creighton, St. Louis University and Tulane because they're private. Keep Keck perhaps and the rest as long as they're free on the waiver program. Funny everyone else would kill for the number of Texas schools, instate preference and low tuition and you want to leave.Fee assistance comes with the 16 free AMCAS applications so I might as well try anyway I guess.
