    Is there any DO school that I should not even bother to apply as an OOS applicant, regardless of stats or anything?

    I'm not even sure whether there's one or not, but I am just curious since I will be an OOS applicant for every DO schools.

    If anyone knows one, let me know.
    Thank you!

    As far as I know, most of the public schools have an in-state preference.
    You can look at this:

    And get a general idea too. Off the top of my head, I wouldn't bother applying to the NJ school, TCOM, OU, or MSU as OOS. That Pacific Northwest school is verrrrrry skewed to people in the region, if I recall correctly.

    MSU has an in-state preference and pretty much weeds OOS'ers out by charing 60,000 + a year in tuition. I am from MI and applied to TCOM. I ended up getting an interview, but was waitlisted and never heard back. If you think you have good stats and want to apply to TCOM, I would. The other schools that have high in state pref. are OU and IU. Most get rejected from IU unless you are a resident or Indiana or have very strong ties to the state. OU has a sort of contract where you have to agree to stay in the state for a certain amount of time and practice after residency. Hope this helps and good luck! :luck:

    I avoided Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, MSU and West Virginia for this reason. Here's the data if you want it though.

    i believe people avoid applying to WVCOM as OOS is because of its ridiculous tuition price for OOS students, not because its IS/OOS bias.

    Thank you everyone for your input. So there are at least 5 DO schools that I should avoid applying as an OOS..
