Hey folks, I presently live in California. I'm thinking of moving up to Portland. For one, I am a nationally certified phlebotomist, and I can actually get work in Oregon right now, while I'm getting dicked around regarding experience and state certification in California. In Cali, presently, I work a low paying job at a bookstore. I just found out that I have a place to stay in Portland for the time being, and I could get a place there that I could actually support while working part time... which is hard to manage in California. The only downside is that the tuition for junior college is much pricier here. If I stay in California, I'll be going to UC Davis to finish my biology degree. The question is - do I stand a better chance of getting into a med school as an Oregon resident or as a Cali resident? I do not have a terribly competitive GPA by California standards.
