Rejection from OU... 158/3.8, TX resident. Wasn't jazzed about living in Norman anyway, but still-- what a sting~

They hate Texans this cycle, I wouldn't worry about it. 

I was rejected too with a 3.04/161.

Norman's pretty cool, but OU has a pretty ridiculous residency requirement (like 85% or something).  You need T1 numbers to get into OU from out of state.

I dunno if you need T1 number to get into OU from out of state necessarily....I have a 157 and my gpa isn't great yet I was waitlisted and i'm from out of state.

With those numbers, you should be IN at UH, or alternatively Texas Tech.  Unless you want/need to be in Oklahoma after graduation, there is no point going there and pay out state tuition. 

If you want to return to Texas after graduation, I don't think it matters if you attended a univeristy in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, or New Mexico.  (I would like to add Alabama and Louisiana too, but, Alabama is tier one and LA has Tulane).

They might suspect you're sandbagging.  A lot of schools don't want to tie up a seat being someone's safety school.

Rejected with 3.04 and 161 is somewhat understandable due to the low GPA, but 158/3.8?  The Admission Com. probably thought "why would this Texan applicant want to attend here when he can get into and attend UH and Texas Tech?"  Unless you have a reason to want to stay in OK, such as a spouse getting a permenant job there, etc. there is going to be doubt as to why you want to attend a schook in OK where there are fewer cities and job opportunities compare to TX where it has Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, etc.
