In 2010, Oklahoma will have 3 medical schools with STRONG in state preference. 115 spots at Oklahoma State College of Osteopathic Medicine - Tulsa. 70 at OU College of Community Medicine Tulsa MD, and 162+ at OU in OKC MD. With the numbers how they are I would say 26 MCAT with 3.5 GPA would be almost automatically accepted to one of the 3 schools. If you are having trouble getting in with good stats I would STRONGLY recommend moving to Oklahoma and working for a year and then reapping the next year. In Oklahoma, housing is very cheap and the job market is strong so you would have no trouble making for the year to establish in state residency.
