I know Baylor and UT Southwestern are top-tier, but where would the rest of the schools lie, middle or low? UT Houston UT San Antonio UT Galveston Texas Tech Texas A&M I do want to make sure I apply to a wide spread of schools, but I was wondering if I was covering my low/middle bases so I could apply for some higher-tier out of state schools . . . or if I should apply to the middle/lower-tier out of state schools as well. My reasoning is that I really would prefer to stay in Texas, and only schools better than those who accept me in Texas will take me out of state . . . Advice, anyone?
