I am trying to create a list of middle tier schools to apply to as a Cali student. So far I have Mount Sinai, Tufts, Wake Forest, U of Rochester, Case Western, Brown, Boston U, Albany, NYMC, Drexel, Jefferson, Penn State, Temple, Chicago Medical school, Loyola, Tulane and Saint Louis University. Can anyone add to this list? Criteria is that admissions isn't impossible for Cali students.

I think AECOM should be added.

Ohio State if you can bare the possibility of living in Ohio for 4 years. . .

Just as a note, some of those schools are more competitive than the average middle tier school (Case, MSSM, Rochester), while others are so-called "low tier" schools. I'm not going to profess further about which ones are which, lest I be flamed for it.

Which is why I didn't either.

Northwestern seems to take quite a few CA residents, and its absolutely beautiful, being right next to the lake. I also recommend GW, Georgetown, and UVM. If weather is your thing, then OHSU takes a fair amount of out-of-staters. Good luck!

unless things have changed, I wouldn't bother applying to Brown if you didn't go to school there. most of their students are PLMEs or Brown grads.

Honestly I think it is a waste of time to rank schools by tiers. Each school is equally competitive in its own right. And each school looks for distinguishing factors. Harvard, Hopkins, Yale and Duke may want applicants with superb numbers and accept at a 5% rate, while Meharry, Morehouse, Drew/UCLA, and Howard want students with excellent community service and still accept at a 5% rate. It is difficult to do rankings only because schools look for different things.

MCV/VCU takes a relatively high percentage of Cali kids

Vermont (over 70% nonres.), Creighton, Cinci, Iowa, Minnesota, Med Coll of Wisc. With the exception of Creighton, these are all schools with fairly high % of nonresidents per USNWR numbers. Oh, also Temple and Penn St.
