From what I’ve read, 8/10 points is competitive but a lot of people still end up getting waitlisted with that unless they’re employed with one of the partnered hospitals. Houston has the biggest medical center of all 3 so there’s plenty of hospitals to choose from when you’re looking for a job but it takes about 1.5 hours to drive from one side of the city to the other without traffic bc it’s just that big, DFW will be near the school so you could potentially attend on campus instead of only applying for the online school. Austin is a fun city to be in, it’s smaller than the other two I think but it’s filled with younger people because of the graduates from UT relocating there after college. I’m from Houston so I don’t know a whole lot about DFW or Austin but I’ve been to those cities a few times. If you can, try to get a job at one of the partnered hospitals when you relocate. I’ve heard being partnered is the big golden ticket to getting in.
