I'm working on all my secondary essays now so I'll be able to submit each of them the day they come in.

Off the bat: You're not in too bad of a way, just make sure to turn around all secondaries within a few weeks. Pre writing helps.

Looking at your school list: New Mexico and Fl. State were poor choices as they accept VERY few out of state students. UCLA is an uphill battle based on residency, Rush has a huge service requirement (avg matriculant has >800 service hrs and >1000 clinical hours, if either of these aren't present in your app your chances are low here), Brown has a preference for their undergrads (about 30-40% of their class) and I would consider Duke a reach. If your comfortable with having 5-6 schools where chances are low regardless of when you submit your app. You could consider adding schools like St. Louis, Thomas Jefferson, Drexel, Temple, Quinnipiac, and NYMC

UNC, UMass, and Rutgers also all take very few OOS. Have you used the MSAR to have make your school choices?

Yes I have. I included several schools based on their location. I get the sense that it's a bad idea to apply to any OOS public institutions. What would you suggest Toutie?

You need to look at the IS/OOS matriculated data in the MSAR. Most, but not all, state schools have very few seats open for OOS. Private schools are usually a better option.

Have your applications complete (secondaries submitted and all LORs in) at schools before labor day and you should be in good shape. I would suggest posting in WAMC for help with your school list.
