    thanks for quick response, i would like to apply to florida, arizona, among other southern schools (love warmer climates), so how would my residency (maryland) affect chances?

    Well AZ is increasing their OOS seat allotment to 50% so you will be fine there. Some FL schools are fine for OOS, some aren't. Get the MSAR and check out the numbers

    I don't think MSAR has any DO schools (I believe OP was looking at DOs only)

    Oklahoma State is another southern DO program..I don't honestly know about how they view OOS...I do know that if you contact them, the lady who takes care of all the questions is great and super helpful!

    I don't know what western pomona is, but for MD you can apply to GW, NYMC, ans since your from Maryland also apply to UMD. Just check out the MSAR with schools around a median of 30 or lower mcat. Your GPA is good.

    EDIT: If you are planning on applying this cycle, submit your AMCAS asap

    I definitely agree. You have a slightly below avg GPA, but only slightly and your MCAT is close enough to a 30 to garner hope. People have been admitted to MD schools with your stats. Perhaps you could retake it to try and hit that 30 mark?

    appreciate it but i would rather get into my top DO choice than a random MD that would accept me; so how would you fancy my chances for nova and western-comp/which would i have a better shot at considering i am from the east coast?
