Comments on TX rankings, and suggestions for OOS schools to add, remove, replace, etc.? Also, how on time/late am I for submitting AMCAS, how important is it to be URM, and how much of a factor should cost be? TX schools are extremely cheap for residents compared to the average OOS. Thank y'all for the help and good luck!

You should receive several interviews from your Texas schools. Add Rio Grande. Your dream schools are possible so apply to those also.
