I think it helps out a little bit, but there is no strong preference like in-state or anything. I think D.C. schools give a little extra consideration to Maryland and Virginia applicants but who knows. If you could make arguments for any "strong ties" you have to D.C. that would help.
In short, no.
Actual DC residents, maybe, but MD or VA is doubtful. Especially when you take into consideration that they're private schools. I'm pretty sure G-town especially doesn't give two farts in the wind about where you're from.
It may also depend on your undergraduate institution. From what my pre-med advisor says, VCU and GWU have a good working releationship, so VCU students tend to be slightly more successful at GWU than the average applicant.
I think it helps, but not much.
Really? I'm not doubting you, but how did that relationship happen? It's not like they're both state schools or whatever. And with GW getting 13,000+ applicants, "doing better than average" still means you get rejected.
Sorry, had to say it.
I'm not saying it's correct, but that's what our pre-med advisor has told us on several occasions. I generally trust what he has to say, but until I see some hard numbers, I am a little skeptical myself.
what about hopkins? anyone actually know if md resident get preference? no speculations! lol
