I'm planning on applying next cycle and am really starting to research which schools to apply to. I'm partial to Baylor and UTSW because I lived in Texas for 2 years after high school and really enjoyed my time there. I know that as a non TX resident I competing for only 15-25% of the available seats.

Because out of state residents are competing for fewer available seats, I'd imagine that their GPA and MCAT are probably higher than the median (3.85 and 33.87 for UTSW and 3.83 and 34.5 for Baylor). Does anyone know by what extent the average changes for out of state matriculants?

I am applying this cycle, a non resident for TX, and am hoping to hear from those two schools, even though they have such long odds for out of state applicants. One of my two interviews next month is UT San Antonio, so I have a chance of becoming a Texan.

It's tough. I know of one friend with a LizzyM of 79 get waitlisted by Baylor, but he got into Southwestern as an out of state applicant. Of course it's only one person, but I bet you need above the median for GPA and MCAT. What's crazy is that an in-state person has a better chance of getting accepted than an out of state applicant has of getting an interview. :/

Congratulations on the interview at UTSW. Good luck!

Ya, I figured that it would be a lot more competitive. I'm studying for the MCAT now and just trying to see what score would make me competitive because my practice scores have flat lined as of late. Do you think that living in Texas for 2 years will help me stand out amongst the other out of state applicants?
