    CA resident, but I know that the idea of in-state doesn't really apply to UCs anymore, relatively speaking. So I'm starting to compile out-of-state options.

    Dartmouth
    Stritch Loyola
    Rush
    Rosalind Franklin
    BU
    Tufts
    Netter
    SUNY Upstate (removed based from comments)
    Albany
    Drexel
    NYMC
    Hofstra
    Pitt
    Case
    Mayo
    Jefferson
    Temple
    GWU
    Georgetown
    Tulane
    Creighton
    SLU
    MCW
    Miami
    EVMS
    Wayne St.

    Indiana (added)
    SUNY Stony Brook (added)
    OUWB (added)

    I appreciate any and all feedback! Thanks!

    In terms of OOS friendliness, the list looks good. In addition, you could consider adding other friendly schools such as Cincinnati, Iowa, Ohio, and Rochester.

    Indiana is also oos friendly but their application is a little frustrating because they're super slow. OSU is also another one that is pretty out of state friendly.

    If by super slow you mean that they don’t even confirm that they received your application for 3 months, then sure. That was honestly my most frustrating application.

    I think WVU’s ~12% post-Interview acceptance rate for OOS students makes it not OOS friendly. That’s a ridiculous chance after spending all that money on travel...

    Unless your undergrad is in NY, SUNY Upstate is not that OOS-friendly but SUNY Downstate (NYC-Brooklyn) is.

    Toss SUNY Upstate and add VCU.

    Many of your school are private schools. And private schools don’t really care where you are from. So if you want to add more look for private schools. Just as a FYI- Rush expects hundreds if not thousands of hours of service and experience. So keep that in mind when reading about the school. Good luck.

    SUNY Upstate does have seats for OOS individuals, although they are more on the OOS unfriendly side. Stonybrook is pretty OOS friendly though from what I recall if you want to add that one.

    I heard that too. Do you know if it's hard screen, pre-interview rejection?

    Now Indiana is actually a school I was looking at, because they have connections in a specialty that I'm interested in. Nice to know they're OOS friendly, will add to the list. Thanks.

    It's not a hard screen. I received an II but did not have many service hours (by their standards).

    They claim a holistic review with no hard screen. They average 800 volunteer and 1600 healthcare hours. I had 1000+ and 4000+ respectively – heard nothing back

    I remain convinced I would have been accepted here had I been IS.

    You're welcome! I'm actually heading to Wayne State, but you already have them on your list ;)

    Hi all, how is Rutgers NJSM in terms of OOS friendliness? I would like to work with one of their physicians specifically, and so it would be great if I make it into their school.
