You should receive interviews from some of your Texas schools. However, the UC's, the SUNY's accept very few non residents with your stats. I suggest adding a few more DO schools and include UIWSOM in Texas.

Thank you for your input! A Texas interview would be great, but unfortunately I have not received any interviews yet. I am worried about my low GPA, hence I'm pursuing a SMP currently.
