1) Your GPA/MCAT metrics should put you in strong position to stay in-state and not have to apply to many DO schools (cut down that list).
2) Check your public school stats if you are intending to apply OOS. You could probably cut down that list significantly.
3) If you have done your due diligence with networking with students within TMDSAS schools, you should be able to make some decisions of student learning culture and support that is best for you. Given that you are non-traditional, you need to be very discerning about what you need to succeed.

I don't think I'm quite understanding what you're saying on number 2. Could you give me an example?

Not a lot of out-of-state schools accept Texas residents because they know most will stay in-state because of cost differences. Check the MSAR for an idea of how many OOS applicants interview or matriculate for a specific public school.
