I'm debating on applying to Maryland but I want to be sure I have a decent chance at getting instate after the first year. I do plan on living in Maryland after I graduate as I have family in Virginia/DC/Maryland area. Can anyone who has recently gone through the process or has known someone who has attained in state please reply. I've been hearing it's getting harder but no one mentions any details.

Most people get Instate by D2 if you are on top of it. It's fairly common from what I hear. If you don't have it by D2, then you should definitely by D3.

Take a gander at this: http://www.usmd.edu/regents/bylaws/SectionVIII/viii270r.pdf

This is there official bylaws on how change residency.

Also I would look at this:

It's (relatively) easy to get in-state if you switched over all your docs to MD before school starts (license, registration), file taxes in MD, attend church in MD AND make a solid case of why you will be in MD post-graduation (fiance, wife, own home, etc). If you just get a MD license and registration, you will NOT get in-state tuition.

I don't know what you mean by the $3500. If you mean $3500 for books, then NO. There are really only a couple books I would recommend and they aren't even required to do well in the course, but are good references for your career (oral medicine, perio, radio).

I believe that most get in-state by D2. It seems like Maryland makes it easier than other places.

From what I've seen on SDN it seems like it makes it difficult.
interesting, because all the people I speak to say "no big deal, you'll have in-state in a year". thanks

How do they get around the fact that they don't pay taxes? I feel like that would be a major deal breaker for most dental students...

I'm basing it off of what I saw here. Basically it states "University of Maryland: according to this thread and this thread Maryland does offer residency, but you have to go out of your way to prove that you wanted to move to Maryland anyway aside from school. Apparently some get it, some don't. Switching all your license/registrations helps. Might be easier after two years of school. Buying a house or marrying into the state are sure fire, apparently. I emailed admissions and they were vague, but they directed me to a residency FAQ which clearly indicated that the residency determination upon matriculation could change with your changing life circumstances."

Here is the link Schools and changing residency: the list
