      Some programs on your list are especially good picks because they don't get every single applicant (unlike UCSF, UW, UPenn, etc) but have some great immunologists (Pittsburgh, Baylor, Iowa). For immunology and virology in similar environments, you might also consider University of Minnesota, University of Colorado Denver, and University of Alabama Birmingham. I'm sure the Texas people will have some good Texas suggestions too...
