List of Schools:

Are you seventh day adventist? If not, take off Loma Linda. Also remove UNC, Baylor, University of Illinois Chicago, and Washington.

I made this list based on my academic background and the city I like plus little search on the schools and also the schools I requested DAT score to sent. (I kinda wanted to save that little money by not adding "new" school on the list)...

to amh137, are those school not OOS friendly? (oh and thank you for your comment :))
Those schools amh137 listed are very out of state unfriendly. Theyre 90% or more state resident.
