    How much did y'all write for OOS ties to South Carolina? Are they just explicitly looking for a list of various relatives that have lived here.

    Yes, it’s $95 unless you have been approved for FAP. If so, you have to forward the FAP email which says you have been approved for it to admissions to receive a fee waiver code.

    Yikes! That blows that their secondary has a few included this year. Kinda wonder why they implemented that.

    When did they not have a fee? I’m a reapplicant and last application cycle they had a fee as well.

    I stand corrected. Looked back at my credit card statement for July 2017 and saw that I indeed did pay $95. I guess I just don't remember it.

    Yes, I check it often. It's possible I could have missed it though. Recommend contacting the admissions office?

    Is the demographic info different from their "secondary"? I am OOS and submitted my close ties after paying the fee. I am assuming they go through IS first and then start looking OOS?

    I think the demographic info is only for IS applicants. I’m not sure about whether they go through IS before OOS instead of at the same time though.

    Also- just recieved the confirmation email for the demographic profile!

    How should the essay for close ties to the state be formatted? I am from NC and have several, including one parent living there for a year, several relatives for a long time, and going to a state school in SC. Is this a formal essay? Letter format? or do they want a list with descriptions?
    Any help is appreciated! Thanks

    I felt it was somewhere in between a list and letter format, brief and to the point. Definitely not a formal essay that I submitted to other schools.

    Guess that means I have no chance applying here right? I've never even been to South Carolina before, but heard good things about this school. I wanted to apply, but I didn't know they were so stringent on their "close ties" requirement :(

    Use your own discretion, but it will be nearly impossible without ties. I did research at MUSC this summer and they said that it didn't count at all.

    Thanks, that probably means I'm going to be rejected too. I have no ties at all, and am not a super strong candidate. Not applying here lol but good luck to everyone else that is!

    Does this school accept updates to your application (new transcripts)?

    Does anyone know if the OOS MCAT requirement of "509 or higher" is a strict cut off?

    I’d check the MSAR to see if they’ve accepted anyone out of state under a 509. If you don’t have the MSAR I can check for you

    Anyone unable to log on to their application progress system? My college net ID is right, and I've tried every email, but I still get invalid log in .
    I've emailed twice over the space of ~4 weeks but I'm not trying to annoy them

    I am able to log onto mine.

    Did anyone receive an email to fill out the SC residency petition form? I just became a resident 12 months ago and have my interview invite but confused as to why I was just asked to fill out the proof of residency form.

    My bet is it's got something to do with being a resident for only 12 months. May not be in whatever verification system they use just yet. Maybe.

    Ah, that seems like a possibility. Did you contact the office of enrollment management about your online status? Maybe they could help you out.

    Yeah, OEM said they don't handle it (though the gateway says they do), and that they forwarded the email to M.D. admissions. Waited a while and then followed up with the admissions worker they forwarded it to. That was about two days ago.

    I figure either way I'll get an email with any status change, unless they use the portal to reject you. If that's the case then maybe I don't want to log on.

    I believe they do it all communication such as interviews or rejections through email judging from application threads of past years.
