I am applying only FM in TX, FL, NY, PA, and NC, most likely.

Step 1: 222
Comlex 1: 525

Step 2: 251
Comlex 2: 650

How good of a chance do I have to match and how many programs should I apply to?

How many people with X stats matched to what:

Given those are diverse states and basically represent 40% of the population of the US, your chances are great without needing to take your decent round 1 scores and amazing round 2 scores into account.

Is there a reason you are concerned with not matching? Some of those states are competitive, but you've got great scores.
