    for out-of-staters: did your rejections say you are invited to apply to our MSTP program?

    I wonder how many out-of-region (non-WWAMI) applicants they accept, or whether they accept any at all. I wish I'd had this statistic before spending $100+ to apply there. I think that if they don't accept any out-of-region applicants, then it's unethical of them to take our money.

    MSAR says they do, albeit a very small percentage. Keep that chin up, hopefully things will work out.

  11. Mine said to apply for MSTP TOO. I actually asked someone in the minority affairs office if this was a standard rejection letter- they said 'no'. But this thread seems to indicate otherwise.

    I didn't apply to U of Washington, but I know they accept a very, very small number of out-of-region applicants (perhaps a few percent), most of whom are underrepresented minorities and/or are heavily interested in primary care work.

    Straight from the horse's website:

    "Residents of the states of Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, or Idaho are eligible to apply. Individuals with a demonstrated interest in research may apply for the MD/PhD program (MSTP) regardless of residency. Applicants from outside this five-state region who come from disadvantaged backgrounds or who have demonstrated a commitment to serving underserved populations will be considered."
