Please look over these sentences for me. Revise each of the following items to clarify pronoun reference.
1. All scholarship applicants must fill out a financial aid form, meet with the dean, and write a letter to the committee members. The deadline is October 24, so the applicants should start the process as soon as possible
2. Patients on medication may relate better to their therapists, be less vulnerable to what disturbs them, and be more responsive.
3. Ms. Dunbar wanted to speak to my mother before speaking to me.
4. In Texas, people often hear about the influence of big oil corporations.
5. A small band of protestors picketed the new shopping center that outraged many residents.
