    I heard that Mississippi doesn't accept any out of state residents. Is this true?

    For the most part Mississippi takes residents of the state first and if there are any spots left over then they will take out of staters. of course this never really happens.
    We do have a few students from out of state who come long enough to establish residency in the state before applying.
    If you have the time to kill, MS has an excellent clinical program.
    If you have relatives in the state use their address.

    Feel free to pm if you have any other questions.

    According to the 2003-04 MSAR, "strong preference is given to residents of Mississippi". It also says that for the entering class of 2001, there 231 out of state applicants, but none were even interviewed. The newer MSAR might have information that is more current. You might also check their website.

    My parents reside in Mississippi. I've been wondering about this too.

    On the AMCAS application you cannot select UMC as a school until you have selected Mississippi as your state of residence. I know this because I am from TN, but go to school in Mississippi and it still would not let me.

    Everyone applying to medical school needs to get the MSAR aka medical school admissions requirements. This book will let you know everything about how many applied vs got in etc...if not you will be sending tons of $$$ to schools that will never accept you just FYI.
