...I would still apply to all the Texas schools. Yes, you are competitive, but no one is a shoo-in.et's say someone is a 3.85/517+ applicant (ORM) from a T25 undergrad, and a Texas resident. Assuming they had good ECs (substantial research, 200+ clinical, 200+ nonclinical, shadowing), should they absolutely still apply to all the TMDSAS schools? Or could they be more selective regarding which Texas schools to apply to, especially if they have no interest in rural medicine or primary care, i.e. ruling out schools such as TTUHSC El Paso, UTRGV, UH, TCOM, SHSU? A sample school list would be:
and then 12 OOS T40 schools
Thanks in advance!
