I just moved to a new state and got my ID, apartment, etc. and my residency is going to be in the state that I have just moved to. The school in my state requires 12 months to live in the state for tuition purposes before the semester starts. My question is :

Am I going to be considered just in-state student for an application, but not an in-state student for tuition purposes If I can't fulfill and prove the 12 months requirement?

Depends on the state but likely you would not qualify for instate tuition. What state are you in?

I think the question is, even if he doesn't meet the 12 month residency requirement for IS tuition, would he be considered IS for whatever admission preference comes from being IS? And, please confirm, but I think the answer is no -- if he's not IS for a year, he's not IS at all, both for the application and for tuition, correct?

Yes, you are right about the question KnightDoc. On the AMCAS it says this " Each state has its own qualifications for determining legal residency; medical schools may request additional documentation." According to my state, I am a resident since I have been here for a time my state requires.

Can medical schools say you are not a resident here or you are not a resident for tuition purposes if my state says you are a resident?

Depends on the 1) state 2) the school 3) the committee. At one extreme is the Texas example where the TMDSAS makes the determination prior to any school seeing you application. At the other end would be UCLA or UCSF that are state schools with no state requirement to favor state residents, have formal policy that specifically do not favor state residents, but by both policy and admissions practice favor those who likely to attend which include those who are in the area/region, such as a recent transplant

State legal residency status does not have to be the basis for either admissions preference or tuition status. All depends on the state and school

You are confusing the two because the state will say you are a resident the minute you meet their legal requirements whereas, for tuition and admission preferences, schools can and often do say you have to have been a resident for a certain amount of time (typically one year). In fact, for public schools, this requirement is often set by the states themselves. So the issue really is not whether you are a resident, but, rather, whether you have been a resident for the required time.

@gonnif is not answering because it is different in different states, but, I'm pretty sure whatever the requirements are, they are the same for tuition preferences as for admission preferences.
