Will my spouse being an alumni and a private practice MD in my schools town help me in getting in? I have a bad GPA from college 5-6 years ago and a 3.7 now, (not combined). I heard that she may be able to sit on the acceptance committee at the school. Any comments or experiences?

While having a spouse who is well-regarded in the community may certainly warrant your application a closer look, I am willing to bet if that he/she were able to secure a position on the admissions committe that your spouse would be required to remove themselves from any decisions on your application.

Then again, we are talking about Texas... ;)
