    Yes
    Concentrate on Texas schools
    Tutor highschool and middle school students science and math. Parents can pay between $25 - $30. Tutor like 10 students (20 hrs/wk) and you will be in good shape.
    Also, do some dental volunteering. And I would def. Do tons of traveling and explore the world ;)

    I don't see any reason why you wouldnt be competitive. You will get some interviews for sure.

    No, I don't think you need more schools. You applied early and have good stats. Actually 15 is already probably more than you need.

    Yes.

    The Texas schools are somewhat more predictable as to whether or not you'll get in. You're good. Don't even bother scheduling classes for that extra semester... Graduate in december, maybe make some money, maybe just chill at home and take a mental health break before school starts, but no need to stress about D school IMO.
