I am a nontrad applicant (33 year old AP Biology teacher- married with a 14 month old son) applying for the 2005 entering class. I live in Florida and have for a long time. I have family in Florida as well and would someday like to practice in Florida. I am applying to both allo and osteo schools. Should I apply to a large number of schools (many out of state for me) or should I focus primarily on the Florida schools, since my top choice would be to stay in Florida? Do I need to apply to a lot of out-of-state schools to increase my chances?
