Hi everyone,

For those of you that have experience with the NIH Post-Bac IRTA position and living in DC...

I found a place in DC but it seems the DMV is really strict about registering your vehicle in DC and getting a DC license to park there, since the streets are zoned. Once I do all of that, am I considered a permanent DC resident?

I submitted my AMCAS application with my NJ address (lived in NJ my whole life, including undergrad). Will I need to inform them of my move by changing my mailing address but not my permanent one? Or when it comes down to establishing NJ residency do I have whoever coordinates these things for IRTAs state that I was there as a trainee and not a permanent resident? I really don't want to be considered out of state by schools like RWJ and NJMS.

I'm a little confused and haven't started my position yet, so I figured I would post here for the IRTAs who may be lurking around. I also saw some other threads on this, but didn't see any outcomes posted. Thanks for reading!

I counted mine as Maryland simply because I started in October...

It is pretty confusing to be honest.

residency will be by tax records; sounds like you are NJ. DMV shouldnt have anything to do with it

Thanks for your responses! I suppose I can always show my voter registration and parental tax records if I need to. Perhaps I'll come back to this thread when/if I actually get into medical school.
