    I know these are great schools that are quite difficult to get in as an out-state applicant (I am from CA).

    Anyway, could any one comment on which one of these three is easiest to get in for an out-state student? Thanks!!!

    If by UW you mean univ of wisconsin, then it is extremely hard to get into their MD program as an out of state resident. I have heard that they are required to have 95% of their calss to be in-state residents. Hope this helps.

    Peace

    uw hardly takes any out of state people. you have to show a commitment to rural health in washington or something like that to have much of a chance.
    uva takes something like 50% (?) out of state, so you have a decent shot there -- although it's a really good school so you may have to have top credentials to get in out of state.
    ohsu takes a fair number of out of state. again, i'd say you'd have to have a very competitive application to get in out of state.

    b/c the process is so random it's hard to say for sure. i applied to uva and ohsu but didn't feel like uw was worth my time.

    I'm from Washington State. I applied to UVa, UW, OHSU and 17 other schools.

    I spent 6 weeks at a UWSOM summer program. UW is a very hard school to get into. We have four other states that are considered "in state," (Montana, Alaska, Idaho, and Wyoming). I would not apply to UW unless you have awesome MCATs, GPA, and ECs.

    I visited OHSU last summer. OHSU is a little easier to get into, but it is still hard since they are primarily an "in state" school. I will be interviewing at OHSU next week.

    I spent 6 weeks at UVa. It is an awesome school and a beautiful town. I ran about 5 miles every other day. They are hard to get into as well. After getting accepted at another medical school, I withdrew my application from UVa, so I am not sure whether they would have invited me for an interview or not. I was told at the summer program, that if you want to be competative, then you need to have double digits on all MCAT subsections.

    U of Va. really loves out-state applicants. I read somewhere that the school is made up of about half of out-state. Have you thought about U of Michigan, thats one of those out-state loving schools:mad: !!!

    Hope this helps

    UVA is very difficult to get into...it is an in-state school so more than half of the students are VA residents. i think the ratio is 80:50, instate:oops:ut of state, but i do agree with some of you, they love out of staters b/c they love the national recognition...

    :p
