Angela D.’s Answer

Jamie is right! If your concern is admission rates and such, please see the website below. Your GPA and MCAT scores weigh heavily. Having said that, some colleges do evaluate candidates in a more holistic fashion than others. Also, it depends on if you wish to pursue an MD or a DO degree/training as well. This is a valuable profession...my son is finishing up his residency this year and hopes to become a rural family physician because of the great need in these communities. Wishing you the best in your endeavors, Dr. B

Absolutely. Some state medical schools have to reserve as many as 90% of positions for in-state applicants.

I agree. At public schools, slots are held for in-state students, and tuition is lower for those with in-state residency status.

Jamie’s Answer

It is always cheaper to go to school in the state you live in. Going to an out of state college is going to cost more because they are not getting any funding from the state you and your family paid taxes in.

I don't unfortunately have additional insight into medical school costs. Hopefully someone who does can better answer. :)

Yes
In Texas, for example, a large number of positions in each entering class is reserved for in-state residents.
