    All Texas schools.

    Edit: UCLA Med has a 10%ile GPA of 3.3 though, so if your activities are up to snuff you should throw an app that way as well.

    I have a hard time recommending too much outside of Texas(perhaps USC). That's where your focus should be. Bumping up that GPA for next cycle would help you. I say that because if you ace this year and go in with around a 3.5 upward trend to complement the 520 it MAY be worth a stab at a couple bigger names. Gyngyn has talked many times how many lower tier schools are hesitant to give real consideration to TX residents because of how rarely they leave the state unless that applicant is good enough to warrant merit scholarship consideration(and scholarships are really what cause TX residents to leave the state).

    OP, what schools would you want to go to over a school in Texas?
