    Why are the California schools your dream schools? Do you have any connections out there? Have you networked with students or admissions recruiters out in California? Sure, your GPA/MCAT key may open a few interview invitations out there, but it's a relatively high cost of attendance that will add to the expected debt you'll have to carry.

    I agree with the above posts. I don’t think your app is quite competitive enough for T10’s like UCLA/UCSF/Cornell/UPenn as an ORM applicant. U of A also has way too much IS bias.

    However, I actually think 25+ applications is a good number. My buddy applied with a 518/3.9 to 18 schools and is still sitting without an acceptance. He had 7 interviews so nothing was wrong with his app. He just applied and interviewed at schools like U of A and Baylor that do not accept many OOS students.
