    My MCAT score just came back and I'm happy to say I scored well above my target with a 513. (128/126/128/131)

    cGPA 3.83
    sGPA 3.73

    Research: 380hours
    Clinical Volunteer: 200+ hours
    Non clinical Volunteer (various activitys include student leadership position): 200+ hours
    Worked in restaurants while in school for 18 plus hours a week

    I'm in New York so I figure I have better chances in state, and I would pay lower in state tuition. So the 8 MD schools I'm applying to are all these.

    Albert Einstein
    Stoney Brook
    Hofstra
    Albany
    SUNY Buffalo
    SUNY Upstate
    SUNY Downstate
    New York Medical College

    Is this a good list of schools? Where else (not in NY) might I apply with my stats? Also how does I'm state tuition work? If I go to a school in a different state will I get instate tuition my second year? Or can I scam a way to get it my first year possibly by moving to the state prior?

    Thanks!
