    You should edit your post, it's confusing. Still I think I understood what you were trying to say. You don't need to stay in the state you go to dental school in, I'm more then sure that if you went to a school in Texas you could still take boards to practice in any other state. The reason you notice this trend in Texas is because Texas schools only take Texas residents and those people tend to practice in Texas after graduating.

    They love anything that involves healthcare and patient interaction ie dental assistant, CNA, etc

    Leadership positions are great too clubs, greek life, teams...

    Really you could do almost anything productive, they want to see that you have a life other than just studying all the time
