Since you are a Texas resident apply to all your Texas state public schools. For OOS Meharry, Howard and Morehouse are where your best chances are. Where did you apply for DO schools?

You should receive several interviews from the DO schools you applied to.
Great! Fingers crossed. How do you think my odds are at TX schools (really wanted to stay home)?

For DO you should have a good chance for an interview at University of the Incarnate Word. MD is more unpredictalbe.
