In State v Out of State Acceptance Rates

jeepjeepjeepjeep Registered User Posts: 3 New Member
Hi all,
I’ve heard that there is a vast difference in the acceptance rates for medical school of in state and out of state applicants. I live in Virginia but I go to school (undergrad) in Georgia. I will be applying for med school in a few years and I was wondering if I would be considered as in state for where I go to college or for where I live.

    Except in very unusual circumstances, you cannot become a resident of state if you are living there solely for educational purposes (attending college).

    Based on what you've posted, you're a Virginia resident.

    If your parents move their jobs and primary residence to Ga for year or more before you apply for med school, you will be consider Ga IS applicant.
