    What's your resident state? LSU only takes a few people from out of state and they are mainly from texas/arkansas

    NYU, BU, Tufts. Maybe a Texas school if you're a resident there. Definitely not Texas if you aren't a resident. None of the state schools really if you're not a resident. Why did you choose so many random public state schools?

    yes I'm from Texas.
    I chose those schools because their stats seems to match mine. And I also have relatives in Penn and Ohio state. But my number 1 choice is Tufts.
    Thank you for helping :)

    You have some real nice states there. You will def. get some interview invites for sure. Now all that matters is when you submit your application. Also, where are you resident at? If there is a dental school there then you have a high chance getting accepted over there. Best of luck for ya.

    Missouri only takes people from like 5 states, so if you are not from one of those states, be careful. If you are, then good luck!

    Just because you have relatives in the state doesn't mean you should apply there. Several of your schools such as Colorado, Missouri, Ohio, Florida, etc. only take a handful out of state people a year and some of those are from surrounding states. I wouldn't hold your breath on them.

    Also, don't want to be bubble breaker, but I don't think you'll get into Penn with a 19/19/21. Most people getting into Penn seem to have 20+ from what I've seen.

    Have you not submitted your application yet? If not, take a couple of those state schools off your list because it will be a waste of time and money.

    I'm submitting later today or tomorrow. And yes, I think I should do that. Do you have any schools recommend?
     
  13. Realistically, your best chances are at one of the Texas schools since you are a Texas resident. With your stats, as long as you are not a social lepper, you should have a very good chance of getting in. But if you are insistent on applying to a bunch of OOS places, then I would probably add Oklahoma to that list.

    Do you know if Texas is part of the RIDE program? I'm pretty sure Colorado only accepts RIDE state residents. Perhaps add a couple private schools in lieu of U of Co and LSU. Just a thought
