Hi all,

I am considering moving to Texas to establish it as residency for med school applications-- I have always lived in another state that has only 1 MD school that I'm unlikely to get into. Me moving to Texas wouldn't be entirely shocking as my dad's whole side of the family lives there. If I were to move at the end of next month would that satisfy the Texas residency rules? I know it says 12 months prior to the deadline but does that mean i would be considered in state until October? I'm applying next cycle.

Im not familiar with the Texas residency rules, as I've lived in Texas my whole life. I would call TMDSAS and verify that with them. Seems important.

I know that it's 12 months, but the problem comes from the fact that I assume you will be submitting your application before October. While you would be a resident come interview time, you wouldn't be by the time you submit your application, and I really don't think you are allowed to claim residency before you actually obtain it. I would definitely check with TMDSAS on this.
