So I've been living in Ohio all my life and just graduated from an Ohio school in May. I am planning on applying to medical schools in 2015, however for the next year or so, I will be working doing research in San Antonio, TX. With a 29 MCAT and 3.68 GPA I was wondering which state would provide me with the best option to receive an acceptance to one of their state schools. I just recently moved, so the one year domicile in Texas in order to earn residency would be in effect during the application process, so my application could be viewed as an in-state applicant in Texas. Another option would be for my parents to claim me on their tax returns for 2014 since I lived with them for part of the year and retain my Ohio residency. Essentially my question is: is Ohio usually more lenient with OOS students who have ties to the state if I would declare Texas residency?
