    Check out VCOM and CUSOM both are OOS friendly (Got ii's there and I did undergrad in WA, so I'm sure being from OR you'll be fine). I went to accepted students day at CUSOM and there was a decent number of people from the west coast.

    LECOM is super OOS friendly. I think 1/2 of my class was OOS. They pride themselves on class diversity.

    Are all three campuses OOS friendly or is it just the main campus?

    You would have to research, when I went there it was only the school in Erie.

    ANY DO program.

    What other schools are OOS friendly to candidates with my "stats"?

    Now now, I agree with the above.

    My concern is though, is that MCAT score going to work this cycle?
    Based on the "N," you must have taken it awhile ago.
    Now, I was getting sh*t from someone on SDN for saying how I was surprised that a MCAT score ## (without writing part) is going to "expire" and not work this cycle.
    Most, if not 99%, will taken an MCAT score up to 3 years old.
    So, make sure your MCAT score is within 3 years, which is likely because the current version (without writing part) stared in 2011 or 2012.
    Just looking out for you.

    P.s. If your score is within 3 years, I don't know why the guy with a ## was saying his is not going to work.....

    I took it May 2012. Is the "within 3 years" date the day we apply or the day we matriculate or the day we get accepted?

    As far as this statement, is that true? I have read (on here) many DO schools have a heavy regional preference and make a OOS application pointless if you aren't an exceptional applicant.
