Hi all,

I just wanted to take a poll on how many out-of-state applicants have applied to/interviewed at/been accepted by the SUNY med schools.

Thanks!

Hey,

SUNY Upstate claims to no longer have any in-state preference. The rest of the schools, however, do not make the same claim, though it appears Downstate is a bit more generous than Buffalo and Stony Brook in terms of accepting applicants from out of state.

Good luck.

Hi, I heard that you can call Buffalo to find out where you are on their waitlist. Is this true? And if so, how come they (the school) never informed me of that? Thanks:)

Out of a class of 180, we currently have 19 people from out-of-state. I think the highest representation was from California.

I'm just sort of curious why out of staters would want to goto the SUNYs...

They don't rank particularly high or anything. Why choose SUNY over your state school?

I'm in-state and am waitlisted at Upstate (HPA) and Buffalo. Have any of you in the same situation heard any new news about their waitlist movement?

I think Upstate's HPA won't even budge until late April...but I was wondering what you found on Buffalo (aside from calling and getting your ranking).

Also, for those of you who go there - do they ask you for your lease documents, etc. when you apply for in-state tuition status? I'm on a sublease, so I'm wondering...

Yup. I'm from California. I applied to all 5 UC med schools, didn't even get an interview at any of them.

Got into Downstate though. (Only SUNY I applied to.)

Now I'm trying to decide between USC and Downstate.
(Accepted at both).

And I'm on Columbia's waitlist, for whatever that's worth.
