Quick exactly do you prove state residency for state medical schools? I mean - I'm studying out of state, but want to return to my homestate for Med school and pay in-state tuition (as well as have the in-state preference for admissions). I return home in the summer to live with my parents in the state, I still retain my voter registration in the state, ect. Is that enough?

theyll have some paperwork that you have to fill out asking you all these questions......where did you go to high school, where are you registered to vote, do you have a state drivers license, have you payed state taxes, etc etc etc.

Based on your answers, theyll decide whether you are considered in-state. You aren't penalized for going to an out of state school, so dont worry.

This question comes up every year. Who is a state resident for tuition purposes depends on the state - and sometimes on the individual school. It's pretty safe to say, though, if you left your home state primarily to attend college and you maintained your permanent residence at your parents' house in your home state, you should have no trouble proving residency.

Just a heads up: If you are a dependent going to school OOS, then the residency forms usually ask for your parents' information.
