can you elaborate further. I graduated from CA highschool but only since have my parents established texas residency. is there a way to declare one residency on the App and reach out to CA schools to confirm CA residency?

It's really hard to give input on your reaches without an MCAT score. I mean, those are super top-tier places. You'd probably need 518+ for most of those.

Also, you can't have two residencies. Your residency is either where you are currently attending school (you would have to fight for this but it's possible) or where your parents live. You can't claim CA residency just because you went to high school there 4 years ago. You don't currently live there.
