Please complete the template with details. The quality of our feedback will be much better.

As it stands, I don't understand why you have applied to so many schools, especially those near the end of your list:
Why WVSOM? The New Jersey schools? Nebraska, ECU, MCW, South Dakota, Florida State, LSU?
 
You have several public state schools that take very few to no OOS students (Nevada schools, ECU, Nebraska, Florida State etc).

What exactly did you do for those hours you listed in each of those categories?

Sorry, I was new to sdn and wasn't sure how much detail I should go into. I was just looking for schools that were OOS friendly and would consider my stats. It seems like states schools are usually not OOS friendly? Which part of MSAR do I look at to consider if this school is OOS friendly or not?

I tried adding more information! By state public schools do you mean X State/ University of X?

There’s a section called “Applications Accepted” that states whether the school has a preference for OOS applicants or not.
You can also tell by how many OOS applicants are interviewed and how many matriculate.

You have many state public schools on your list that admit few non residents with your stats and no connection to the state (ECU does not admit non residents and U Washington admits less than 1% of applicants who are not from state in the Northwest).
I suggest these schools with your stats:
Vermont
Quinnipiac
Albany
New York Medical College
Hackensack
Drexel
Temple
Jefferson
Penn State
George Washington
Virginia Commonwealth
Eastern Virginia
Wake Forest
NOVA MD
TCU
Creighton
Rosalind Franklin
Medical College Wisconsin
Western Michigan
Oakland Beaumont
Wayne State
Belmont
Arizona (Phoenix)
Alice Walton (when it opens)
Roseman (when it opens)
California University
Kaiser
UC Irvine
UC Davis
UC Riverside (if you are from that region)
Loma Linda (if you fit their mission)

I agree with Faha’s list, but you could benefit from swapping Arizona Phoenix and Kaiser for Loyola and Rush.
