You should receive several interviews from your TMDSAS schools. Generally, OOS schools interview few Texas applicants with no connection to the school or state since they know from years of experience that Texas applicants will attend a Texas school. You could add Baylor, TCU-UNT and Tulane.

Thanks, from MSAR I saw that the schools on my list had accepted TX residents. Should I keep any of these?

Do you know how many Texas residents were accepted by those schools ? The ones accepted are more likely those who attended the undergraduate school, former residents of the state, and URM.
